In my opinion I would not go anywhere else for health care, but the United States of America.
I believe it is most likely cheaper in other countries for dental care, but you can only get what you pay for. I have no problem paying a little extra for the peace of mind that my tooth is being taken care of with state of the art dental care.
There are several risks to going overseas for dental care. But, it all depends on which country you go to. Go over to Zimbabwe, and they might just have a string, and pliers ready for you. While in France for example they have pretty much the same dental care we do. You are also trusting a doctor who is probably not accredited by the A.D.A. (American Dental Association).
I think that if anti-bio tics were available over counter a lot of people wouldn't have to go to the dentist. For example my tooth had a bacterial infection caused by a poorly done root canal. I went to the dentist, and spent around $50 dollars to have them check it out. (I also don't have insurance) The only option was to either pull it, or try antibiotics. So I was prescribed Azithromycin which costs me about $80 a long with the Vicodins for the pain.
After two days of taking the antibiotics swelling had occurred under neath the tooth. Knowing exactly what the dentist would do I took a needle cauterized it, and poked the swelling. INSTANT RELIEF. My tooth has been feeling great ever since. I wonder why antibiotics can't be sold over counter. There really is no addiction that can be caused by them.
