  • Hungarian dentists are renowned world-wide for their excellent qualifications, expertise and considerable experience in general dental practice and research.

All our dentists working in Hungary are registered with the Hungarian Chamber of Dentists. Our Dentists working in our London clinic are registered with the General Dental Council in the UK and covered by the dental indemnity of Dental Protection or the Dental Defence Union in our London clinic. All Forest&Ray dentists possess liability insurance as required by the Hungarian Chamber of Dentists.

Am I insured against any problems arising after leaving Budapest?

Our clinics will cover all necessary dental and laboratory costs to rectify the problem, in the event of unsuitable laboratory work. If small adjustments and repairs are needed, a dentist will see you at our London practice. Aftercare is provided in London at an additional cost and all additional work will be carried out in the clinic in Budapest. Please ask our Terms& Cond from our team via email.

There are many reasons that we are able to offer lower prices.  But one thing that you should always remember – at Forest&Ray we cut prices, not quality!

Firstly, salaries for all professions are lower in Hungary than in Western Europe.  Dentists and their staff earn less money in Hungary than in the UK.  Therefore our staffing costs are less here in Hungary.  This also explains why many professional Hungarians choose to work abroad at some stage of their career.


Studying and training to become a dentist at one of Hungary’s internationally renowned universities costs less than a similar programme of studies in the UK or North America.  That’s why many international students and graduates come to Hungary to study and undertake research in dentistry.  Entrance to medical faculties in Hungary is highly competitive due to the limited places this ensures that only the crème de la crème of undergraduates can pursue their studies. Foreign students who wish to come to Hungary to study are selected on academic merit, not just on their ability to pay, like in some other countries.

Property prices in Budapest are considerably less than in London, even in the city centre. Forest&Ray can offer the same services at our spacious clinic in Hungary with much lower overheads.  Water and other utilities are cheaper than in the UK too.

Hungary’s currency is the forint, not the euro, so UK customers can make big savings with the advantageous exchange rate.  You can still settle your bill in sterling at our clinic in Budapest, or by transfer into our UK bank account which means that there are no nasty shocks at the end of the treatment.  You know exactly how much you have paid as the bill is in pounds and pence.

There is not much difference in the costs of the medical supplies used, so this is one area where we have the same costs as other countries. All Forest&Ray’s medical suppliers are respected international companies, such as BioHorizon and Zoom who also supply dentists in the UK.  As we said, we don’t cut corners, we cut prices.  The standard of care and professionalism is the same as the UK, but we can pass on the savings that we make on staffing costs and other overheads.

Don’t forget that accommodation, sightseeing, eating out, concerts and theatre are generally less costly in Budapest than in London on a like for like basis.  When you come to have your dentistry done in Hungary, your pound really does go further.
