For Traveling Patients

An Obeid Dental Patient Talks About Her Experience As A Travel Patient and Her Smile Makeover

Obeid Dental is very accustomed to treating patients who are traveling internationally to our office or from out of state. We know these patients have highly specific needs, including strict timelines for the procedures.

At Obeid Dental we work to arrange travel, schedule multiple appointments in advance and provide you with exact timing details for your visit to our office. We have a full dental lab and a master technician on site, ensuring faster turnaround for your restorations and your dental work.

With our emphasis on the patient experience, we try to anticipate any issue that might arise with having dental work away from the comforts of home. We are happy to coordinate with patients traveling from outside the region to ensure that the entire experience- from travel to the office and the procedure itself – is as easy as possible.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Depending on your travel arrangements and length of treatment, you may find it prudent to book an overnight stay at a hotel.

These services can be coordinated by hotel concierge staff.

DINING: We strive to ensure our patients feel comfortable before, during and after their procedures. Understandably, travelling patients may need dining options during their time at our office. If so, we are happy to provide menus for local restaurants including Tavira (located within the same building) or Manoli Canoli (located across the street) to coordinate delivery of lunch or post-procedure meal. Dr Obeid will provide guidance regarding what foods should be avoided immediately after a procedure.
