Dental implants can be expensive in western countries so many Australians and New Zealanders are interested in dental tourism.

This is without any reduction in quality, as clinics able to offer high-quality yet affordable dental implants in Phuket for the following reasons:
Dental clinics in Phuket have much lower costs than clinics at home. There are many highly-qualified dentists, and while they could make more in western countries, they choose to live in their home country accepting lower salaries.

- New Zealand: NZD 5,238
- Phuket: AUD 2,630 / NZD 2,871
