And how much do they exactly charge for the dental services? and how do they exactly plan to recover the cost of a Rolls-Royce if it has been bought and not leased?

In my personal opinion, this is just ridiculous. Instead of attracting clients through such means, provide high quality healthcare which low prices - that will earn you more clients

Ty Say,
Am I the only one who sees commercials on BBC World News.
I am sorry to say that the one who is wrong is you?
BBC World News has a different status than the UK national broadcast.
Qatar and the UAE are their major sponsors, as you can observe by watching BBC World News.
Here is BB World News actual status:

Unlike the BBC's domestic channels, BBC World News is owned and operated by BBC Global News Ltd., part of the BBC's commercial group of companies and is funded by subscription and advertising revenues, and not by the United Kingdom television license. It is not owned by BBC Worldwide.

The resale market is completely non-existent. Today there is so many properties sitting empty with owners reluctant to put into the rental market for fear of seeing the property as "Used". Compounding this rental market is the fact those owners whom do offer their properties for the rental market or through AirBnB are so grossly over priced they too remain low. If owners would realize these factors there is a great opportunity to compete with the Hotel markets. Sadly something has to give as one mentioned in the comments, only deals being done are off-plan as financing is favorable but an exit for such buyers is 10 years out.
