Croatia is upping its tourism appeal by incorporating cheap dental care in its list of Things To Do While In Town.
Zeljko Popadic and his sister Jelena Nedeljkovic started a modest dental practice in the northern Adriatic town of Rovinj in 1997. They had only three employees and a few local patients.
Hit the beaches, lay out, grab a late lunch at the hotel, then head on over to the local hot-spot to get that cavity filled. Why not? Nedeljkovic states:
It is a perfect opportunity to combine holidays and dental care.
Amen to that sister. When I was in Italy last year the only thing I could think of while walking through the Vatican was not, "Wonder where Pope Benny is?" but rather, "Hot damn, I could go for a thorough dental cleaning right about now."
.... If only my brother's wife had been Croatian.
