Why Do Implant Quotes Vary so Much from Dentist to Dentist?

Q.
Hello, I hope you can help. I have received a variety of quotes for two anterior implants with a four tooth bridge. A Dublin implantologist’s quote, like for like, is half the price of the UK.Why?
Does my dentist in the UK have any obligation to treat me if things go wrong? My worry is the number of visits I might require to Dublin. Hope you can help, thank you. 
A.
Thanks for your question. So the first question you have to ask is how are the dentists you have been to see like for like. There may be a vast difference in their experience qualifications and skill. There could also be a difference in the quality of the laboratory work (the bridge).

The only person who would be responsible for your dental work is the dentist who treated you. No other dentist would be obliged to treat you, especially if you have problems or complications. You would incur further fees to treat any emergency situation or reparative treatment.

There are potentially 4 or 5 visits required in most cases.  Regards,   Mark.

Hello
I realise you have had questions like this before but I am in need of two implants and am truly stunned by the estimate of well over £6k. I appreciate costs vary considerably but would you say the quote was reasonable with costings on the statement like, adhesive, socket, synthetic bone graft, noble biocare implants & retained crowns.
Friends I have spoken to seem to pay around half this amount but I appear to have items on my quote not mentioned on their bills.
I do visit a very good private practice.
Many thanks
