Smile and Teeth dental - We can be your dentist in Budapest!

Looking for a dentist in Budapest can be quite the challenge at times – especially when the website isn’t properly translated, you’re not sure they take your insurance; you don’t know if they speak English… The list goes on.

Well, we’re here to assure you that the search is over.

Whether you are facing some serious dental issues or just need your annual checkup, Smile & Teeth is here for you.

Our dental clinic is located in the heart of Budapest, at the foot of the Buda hills. Easily accessible by bus and metro, we’re awaiting our patients for all their dental needs.

Dental insurance abroad and in Hungary

Plenty of people have some sort of basic dental coverage with their company; large corporations or multinationals offer this. However, this is usually just enough for basic dental treatment. That’s why it’s important to have a trusted, local dentist at a private clinic who can handle any and all of you and your family’s dental needs.

We try to make this process as easy as possible: not only do we accept a wide variety of dental insurances, we also offer dental packages as well to make your payment process as smooth as possible.

Our clinic has agreements with several insurance companies throughout the world. We can provide cashless service by sending their invoices directly to your given insurance company. Make sure to call your insurance provider before your appointment to ensure your eligibility and whether you’ll be receiving the proper coverage.

For dental insurance plans, we handle direct billing as well. You will need to provide an insurance card or proof of insurance. You may also need to fill in a separate claim form if required by your insurer.

If you have any questions in regard to this, please feel free to contact us!

EU safety & assurances

English-speaking dentists – and more languages!

Are you from abroad, but working in Hungary? If you’re planning to stay in Hungary for the near future, then it is highly recommended that you find a trusted local dental clinic that can take care of all your needs – not just a 15 minute yearly clinic.

Our clinic aims to serve the needs of expats in Budapest. How? By providing the kind of service, attention, cleanliness, and communication that you require in a foreign country.

Maybe you’ve grown accustomed to a certain level of treatment back home that you just haven’t yet found in Hungary… try out Smile & Teeth to meet your needs.

We also speak several languages in our clinic: German, English, Russian, and Korean.

Our receptionists, assistants, dentists and doctors are ready to make sure you both understand every step of the process and feel comfortable.

Why Hungary? – Dental Tourism

Hungary isn’t the dental tourism capital for nothing.

It has become more and more popular throughout the decades for patients to travel to Budapest and spend a few days or just the weekend exploring the city while receiving affordable, reliable care.

Hungarian Dentists are renowned for their quality services and receive rigorous education in the school system.

Pandemic safety measures

Luckily enough, given the improving conditions, Hungary has been able to allow relatively lax coronavirus measures regarding international travel. Entering the country and reaching our office is as easy as a test of vaccine pass.

Our office upholds strict pandemic policies as well to ensure all of our patients’ health and sense of comfort:

  • Visits and treatments are only allowed by appointment to reduce waiting times and to avoid having numerous patients in the waiting room simultaneously
  • We take your temperature and request hand disinfection upon arrival with provided hand sanitizer at a hygiene station at the clinic’s entrance; if your temperature is above 37,8C we will kindly ask you to return home
  • At the reception desk, our colleagues and yourselves are protected by a transparent plastic barrier
  • During treatments, all medical staff must wear protective shields and gloves
  • Treatment rooms are ozonized after each intervention
  • Free phone consultation available for non-essential dental cases

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact us ahead of time.

It’s essential to have a local dentist in Budapest to make sure you receive proper and essential care on a regular basis, in emergency cases, and for the short and long term. Don’t let your dental health go just because you can’t find a dentist your trust and can communicate with.

Dentist appointment in Budapest? New year, new teeth: Holiday 2022 edition

Dentist appointment in Budapest? New year, new teeth: Holiday 2022 edition

So, are your holidays shaping up like mine this year: skipping the stress of travelling back to your hometown this year and instead staying in Budapest? 🎄

This year again, you’re probably siding with foregoing the costs, stress and tests of visiting home over the holidays.

So you may have to miss out on seeing your family this year… 

But what about your local, childhood dentist? 🦷

Dentist abroad – Budapest

Have you ever been to a dentist here in Budapest? 

Are you a bit nervous about calling up & making an appointment here?

I was just like you:

  • Relatively healthy teeth
  • Decent dental care
  • And very connected and dependant on my hometown dentist 😁

I didn’t need to go, so I didn’t. 

Yearly dental checkup

Of course, I think we all know that that is not the right approach to our health.


Regular checkups and consistent care is essential to sustainable & long-term health. 

Especially with our teeth.

Not only are annual cleanings key to great teeth, but what’s more, you don’t always feel or notice emerging damage. 

A yearly cleaning and X-ray will spot any cavities forming and help to prevent worse decay and ensure less pain in treatment.

Of course, finding the right dentist for your yearly treatment isn’t so easy. I’m not sure how brave you are with your dental care, but I definitely always get nervous every time I’ve got a dentist appointment lined up. 

Dental care now & for the long-term

Like I said, finding a dentist is not the easiest task. 

I’m sure you have plenty of expectations that have to be fulfilled: 

  • Friendly, honest care and communication
  • Precise and painless dental work
  • Flexible scheduling that can accommodate your hectic life
  • And of course, decent English-language communication

A premium clinic like Smile & Teeth Budapest delivers just that. We specialize in expat care which means English communications from everyone involved, a high-quality clinic and materials used, and help with any other aspect of care and follow up you may require.

So, whether you’re stuck here this Christmas season / New Years, or just looking for a reliable dentist, make an appointment while you still can!

Prioritize your health this 2022!

Call to make an appointment or send us an email.

Hope to see you soon!

Can you recommend a good dentist in Budapest? We can!

Can you recommend a good dentist in Budapest? We can!

Moving to a brand new city is exciting! Take it from me, a first-hand expat 😉 But it comes with it’s own handful of risks as well of course. Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere unfortunately – so you’ve got to be at least partially prepared.

We all know how fast a slight toothache can become a searing pain that leaves us unable to eat or talk. It sucks. If you’re an expat like me, you probably have some sort of coverage through your workplace. Coverage that provides clean, fast, easy dental checkups. Unfortunately however, not much more. :/ 

Through your traditional, large-scale insurance coverage centers, be prepared to pay tens of thousands of forints for any procedure that is more than a basic cleaning. And your treatment will basically be business-as-usual.

So that’s why I’m encouraging you to be prepared: while your basic insurance plan is more than enough for your six-month dental cleanings, you may want more when it comes to a complicated or lengthy dental procedure.

What do I mean by more? Finding quality care that meets your standards as an expat can be tricky.

First and foremost, you’ll want a first-hand recommendation. Then, you’ll want to make sure that all dental care can be provided and communicated in English. The dental clinic itself must be clean, modern and assuring. You’ll want to be sure you're working with dental professionals and dentists who are dedicated to their craft, established in the field, and will prioritize your comfort every step of the way.

Well, at a locally-based, premium dental clinic like Smile & Teeth we are specialized in accommodating expat dental care. Read any of our personal reviews here. We make sure to provide English-language communications at every step of the way, from the first phone call to your consultation to follow-ups. 

Our dental clinic, located in the heart of Buda and easily accessed with the number 5 bus is a locally-based, modern office. The Smile & Teeth clinic was fully renovated with patients’ comfort and premium care in mind. 

Our team of dental professionals has been in the business for over 3 decades and has worked in and established multiple clinics throughout Budapest. But most importantly, given our small, local, tight-knit team, we prioritize your health, care and comfort above all else. And all at the same price, if not less, of those massive insurer-clinic webs.

But you don’t have to just take my word for it, visit our clinic at Pasareti út 57. or give us a call at +36704290157 today to have a consultation.
