The following description in a current listing for a month long sit in Greece caught my attention:
“There are both private and public health facilities. We use an excellent German doctor as our GP… There are first class dentists too, should the need arise!”
As someone who has lived in many different countries and now lives in Switzerland, where all medical and dental procedures are expensive, I’ve often thought about returning to my former dentists in Prague or Paris for a quick teeth cleaning and check up.
When we lived in Paris, I recommended that an American friend have her tooth crowned by my French dentist. The savings between having the dental work done in the USA or in France would have more than covered my friend’s flight to Paris.
Of course, caring for a HO’s pets is always our top priority, so it wouldn’t be possible to have anything major done – but have any sitters had any minor dental work done while on a sit? If so, was it a good experience?
