The healthcare system in Hungary

The first private hospital in Hungary

 If you are interested in dental treament abroad you will probably be interested in reading the information on this page, which outlines the healthcare system in Hungary.


Hungary has an all-inclusive health system for every tax payer which is similar to the NHS in the UK and which was set up in 1945.  The private system doesn’t work through insurance schemes however as it does in the UK (like Bupa or PPP), but on a treat and then pay scheme.  The private hospitals and dental surgeries are equipped with state of the art modern technology and facilities, largely due to the influence of the German clients who have been visiting the country for over fifteen years to take advantage of the very competitive prices for their dental and surgery needs.


In the UK you might expect to see a dentist who specialises in one particular area but in Hungary dentists are trained to cover all aspects of dentistry and they have a longer and more comprehensive training than those in the UK.  Most of the clinics are located in Budapest in modern facilities and run by internationally trained English speaking doctors and equipped with digital x-ray systems, the latest computer controlled dental chairs, oral cameras and laser and light teeth whitening systems.


The Hungarian Dental Council is based at 1068 Budapest, Szondi u.100.  Telephone:  00 36 1 353 21 88, fax: 00 36 1 353 21 88 and email:kamara@fogorvos.hu

Dental surgeons and doctors are known simply as Doctor or Mr and doctors state their speciality.  Hungarian dentists and surgeons’ qualifications are acknowledged in the UK, and in fact many do work internationally/in the UK. 


All clinics and hospitals have to be approved and registered with the government health department and all doctors have to also be registered, declaring their diplomas and qualifications to the same department, before they are allowed to practise at a particular institution. This also applies if the surgeon works at more than one institution then he/she has to be registered at all places of practice.
