    Hey all,

    As you know pricing of dental stuff etc. are expensive in UK ( especially in/near London) that is why I need someone to join me in my venture. I wanna get customers from UK to flight to other country to pay less and visit a bit new country. Here normal Small tooth filling-White cost 24£ not 79£.

    To clarify I need someone from UK - I'm already in this 'cheap' country.

    If you feel the same and think that we can make it - msg me /post here / pm me and we will talk more about it how it is going to be and how much we can get for it.


    Cheers!

    I think your concept is flawed. Why on earth would someone fork out say £250 (at minimum) to travel and get dental work done?

    Here in the UK the NHS contributes partially towards the cost of dental work for those on lower incomes, and those on higher incomes don't worry too much about paying £80 for a filling.

    Not only does the cost probably come out at a higher price to the customer by travelling abroad, but it also creates a lot more hassle. No one is going to spend 2-3 days of their time to get dental work done.

    I really doubt they would fly from the UK to India for dental work. Perhaps if they were visiting family in India or something, maybe. me? I'd rather go the 2 miles and get it done.

    People may do for cosmetic reasons that are VERY expensive here in the UK.

    But there are still a number of flaws. some that have been pointed out. What happens if something goes wrong???

    They have to fly out again, pay more in travel, hotel costs. pay for the errors to be sorted out.

    Or

    Pay a SH*$ tonne of cash to get it corrected here in the UK.

    It is safer to pay for the work in the UK and alot less hassle.

    I would be very suprised if you get anyone from this forum to team up with you on this one.

    50GBP? You can save even 300GBP-1000GBP easly. It only depends on what you need to fix. That is why people ARE DOING this :) that is why there is a niche in which we can make really good money - all depends on connections/amount of clients etc. Still looking for a partner.

    @edit:

    something can go wrong everywhere.. do you think that 'my' dentists do not give their guarantee ? They have to give it or they won't have any client. We can also work some kind of guarantee - all this need plan - I have an idea, money and connections here - need connection in UK.

    The market isn't near big enough for a decent amount of profit to be made. I live in London in one of probably the more expensive areas (not Belgravia, Mayfair or anywhere deep central however), and I bet if I asked about 50 people around here whether or not they would consider paying £700+ (baring in mind flights to India are at least this price, just did a check on Expedia, even more so probably during peak times) to get some dental work done, not one will say yes.

    Attempt to start this scheme, and the odds of actually making a decent profit are stacked against you.

    Oh right, I read the wrong post then. I assumed the guy who said he was a dentist from India was you, should've read the poster name. Where do you live then? You're going to have to bare in mind costs for travel, hotels, dental work + the additional time spent on actually going to another country to get dental work done.

    Going to the dentist is not something a lot of people would combine with going on holiday, it's not fun, it's more of a needs based trip. Again, I mentioned before, those on low income are backed by the NHS in the UK, and those who earn enough wouldn't usually mind paying the fees for dental surgery, it's not often.

    The market size purely isn't big enough for a substantial profit, at least from my point of view.

    Regardless of how much you think this will work, I highly doubt you'll find someone on this forum at least who will actually partner with you on this. As you can see, 4 people from the UK have already posted (myself, Hexalor, welshman and Clutterbuck) all of us quite skeptical and in doubt of your ideas.

    You're going to have a SERIOUSLY hard time finding anyone to partner with from the UK. I highly suggest you look into something else.
