- Before you travel abroad, ask your dentist if he or she has contacts in dental fraternity groups such as the Academy of Dentistry International, the International College of Dentists or the Pierre Fauchard Academy. The foreign embassy offices in Washington or a local consulate also may be helpful.
- The International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers, or IAMAT, maintains a network of medical personnel, hospitals and clinics around the world that have agreed to treat IAMAT members in need of care. IAMAT is helpful in referring patients to dentists. Any traveler can belong to IAMAT. There is no membership fee, although a donation is welcome.
- If you are traveling in Europe, contact the American Dental Society of Europe. The Society's members, dentists who live and work in Europe, have completed a full-time course of study at a recognized dental school in the United States or Canada.
- Many countries have dental associations that can provide referrals.
- A dental school in a foreign country also may be an option.
- Dental referrals may be available from the hotel concierge, the American Consulate or the American Embassy in the country you are visiting.
