4. Country security

India is generally a safe destination for tourists, although it is always wise when you are in any unfamiliar surroundings to remain vigilant against petty theft, such as pick-pocketing.

Make sure you agree on fares in advance and avoid tourist scams by not allowing your taxi driver to take you to a place of their choosing, rather than where you actually want to go. Avoid unstable areas, such as the India-Pakistan border, Jammu and Kashmir, and avoid isolated areas, particularly if you are alone.

Be careful swimming around the Indian coast as some areas have dangerous undercurrents, and exercise extra caution during monsoon season.

Any country can be more dangerous than another depending on where you are going. However, some cities are very safe for foreigners. Here is a list of cities where you will be safe for your dental care.

Colombia: Cartagena, Bogota and Medellin
Costa Rica: San Jose and Escazú
India: New-Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Goa
Hungary: Budapest and Mosonmagyarovar
Mexico: Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Monterrey and La Paz
Thailand: Bangkok and Phuket
