Turkey Medicals member and Antalya Chamber of Dentists, stated that Alanya beach and holiday resort has a great potential in terms of Turkish health tourism, and said that if investment is made, it will be won.

Scandinavian countries such as the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Norway prefer Alanya for health tourism. In the field of health tourism in the Turkish riviera, Alanya is seeing revival for botox, hair transplantation, dentistry, ophthalmology and asthma treatments. Damlataş cave and turquoise beach, in particular, is a known source of healing throughout the world. Antalya Chamber of dentists, whom we discussed about health tourism, said that we are at world standards in technology and quality in Turkey and Alanya, “Tourism in the developing world is also diversifying. Because of the economic difficulties in the European Union, health tourism has also increased its importance in the last 4-5 years and it has become clear that tourism should not only consist of sea, sand and sun. In our country, there is a path that our room has taken as health tourism. But while it guarantees some values in terms of non-commercialization of Turkish Health in the Law On Dentists No. 3224 and the medical deontology Regulation, it also causes us to face some obstacles in the Dental holiday travels in promotion phase.” was said.

For example, the ability to bring tourists to our region for a health operation from abroad is prevented by these substances. Because we can’t sign an agreement with any tourism company or write a ‘Dentist’ (dentist) on our sign, even though we are in the potential tourism region.

At our General Assembly in May, we raised the issues of what should be done for Alanya dental implant tourism and prepared a preliminary report. I believe there will be good developments in the future. Because health tourism has many advantages in terms of our region. A person who will come to Alanya for Health will bring his family with him. If we can send these people to their country happily, the value they give to the Turkish people will be very high and they will want to come back to Alanya for a safe holiday. After that, people who prefer Turkey for the sea will say,” let’s deal with our health problems while we are here,” not “Let’s see the nature, sea, cultural structure and history of Alanya when we are here for health.”

The Alanya Tourism Operators Association and Alanya Tourism Promotion Foundation organizations such as Mediterranean health tourism should include in the promotion programs stating that Turkey Medicals dental team, the organizations to be held must necessarily work with support from doctors, was said. “Health tourism is a very sensitive issue. We find that facilities are inadequate, especially for wheelchair users. In the first place, we can begin to travel the distance, overcoming them. Turkey is very advantageous compared to European countries in terms of health tourism. It is 2-4 times cheaper than all European countries in price.

For Turkey dental tourism sector increasing high after 2019 with 500 thousand dental tourists arriving to Turkey in general, “Thanks to its mild climate, a family who comes during the winter period will also have the opportunity to get to know the City comfortably. As a general rule, Europeans who will come for surgery will also prefer winter periods, Alanya will take an active role in efforts to spread its tourism to 12 months as a sought-after solution for winter tourism in Turkey,” was said.
