In this Global Platform video, Shady Ali Hussein, chairman of the Reversing Medical Tourism Flow Organisation, talks about the advances being made in Egyptian dentistry technology, its contribution to higher levels of medical tourism and its role in the retention of skilled dental professionals. As Egypt has 15,000 dentists graduating each year, attractive positions and high salaries are keeping them in the country. Furthermore, competitive pricing in the international market is attractive to medical tourists, and rising numbers of visitors are being welcomed from Saudi Arabia, Europe and other Western countries.


People from the developing countries start to travel to developed countries to have their education and learn their skills in these developed countries. The taxes in these countries are very expensive for the doctors. The doctor’s fees are very expensive. The human resources are very expensive. And you can get more and more quality of treatment with the skilled operators and high technology and high infection control units with developing countries. With the development of digital infrastructure and the internet, a lot of people can compare prices and can see stories of patients, and can see examples of the treatment, the outcome of the treatment and that is amazing. Oh, wow, this can be done in developing countries?
