Dental tourism in eastern Europe

I have a friend here in the UK who needs some dental work doing and decided to combine it with a little holiday and maybe save some money by getting it done in either Poland or Hungary.

I've heard from other friends that eastern European dental tourism is a good idea (it's clean, cheap, and the dentists are skilled) but I've yet to meet anyone who's actually done it. Furthermore I can't find any independent sources that offer advice/recommendations/anecdotes/lists of dentists to avoid - only glossy websites set up by either dentists themselves, or specialist travel agents who want to sell the whole package.
Have any of you, or someone you know, done something similar in one of these countries, and if so do you have any more details, or resources that could help me? How long would you recommend staying there for, say, an initial check up and a couple of crowns fitted? Would a working week be long enough?
