Deep Discounts on Dental Work: How I Saved Thousands of Dollars By Going to Mexico for Treatment.

Deep Discounts on Dental Work:  How I Saved Thousands of Dollars By Going to Mexico for Treatment.

Hi, I’m Michael Owen from Santa Fe.

I’ve been dealing with serious TMJ issues that cause me daily pain for many years.  TMJ is essentially a problem in my chewing system that affects its functionality.  My local dentist in Santa Fe recently told me that I needed five crowns (caused by my TMJ) and it was going to cost $4,107.60.

I heard about Beyond Borders Dental on a radio show and decided to try them out.  The price to have five crowns done in Mexico was only $1,300.  That’s a savings of $2,807.60!!  Here’s my trip I wanted to share with you.  (*If you want to watch the video, scroll down to the very bottom**)

 

I saved $2,807.60 on five dental crowns by going to Mexico for dental care.

 

I decided to use Beyond Borders Dental Concierge Service which included everything from booking my appointment and hotel accommodations to shuttling me from Santa Fe to Palomas, Mexico for my dental treatment.

 

Here’s Ralph and Terri the owner of Beyond Borders Dental.

 

On October 12, I arrived at Beyond Borders Dental office in Santa Fe.  We had a short orientation with the owners Ralph and Terri about what to expect during the trip before heading to Mexico for treatment.

After the orientation, we all piled into the van and got comfortable.

The whole trip took about five hours and the scenery was beautiful, I had never seen these sections of New Mexico before.

 

Southern New Mexico has stunning scenery.

 

When we arrived in Deming it was dinner time and we decided to go straight to an Italian restaurant owned by a couple from New York.  They made really fantastic pizza along with a lot of other really good food.

After dinner we checked into a hotel in Deming.  It was really comfortable and I had a wonderful night’s sleep.

Here’s another cool thing.  There was a reporter there taking pictures for an article in the Santa Fe New Mexican which came out a few weeks later.  Guess I’m going to be famous! 🙂

 

The Santa Fe New Mexican sent down a photographer to take photos as part of their feature story on Beyond Borders Dental.

 

After breakfast, we piled in the van and went down to Columbus, New Mexico which is about a half hour drive and parked the van.  We all crossed the border which was about a two minute walk from where we parked.

Half of our group went straight over to the dental clinics while the other half went shopping at the optical store.  They have some amazing deals on designer and prescription eye glasses.

When it was my turn, I was escorted back by the hygienist and had a thorough examination with the dentist.  He recommended waiting to get the dental crowns and instead begin by addressing my TMJ issues which is the main cause of why my teeth needed crowns in the first place.  I never knew a solution existed to getting rid of my TMJ pain and subsequent dental problems.  I thought I was going to have to keep living with my pain.

My dentist was very professional.  He did an exam and decided not to do the crowns until my bite was corrected.

 

We discussed dental care options and decided to begin treatment by first correcting my TMJ.  He took molds to make a bite plate that would help to re-program the muscles in my jaw.

 

He took molds to make bite plates to correct my TMJ.  I have to wear this for a few months to retrain the muscles in my mouth.  Then I will get the crowns.

 

I will wear the plate for a few months and then when that’s done, then they’ll do my dental crowns instead of just doing the crowns.  This makes a lot more sense to me and I felt good about the level of professionalism.

 

I will come back to get my dental crowns after my bite is corrected.

 

After I finished at the dental clinic, I took a walk in the park and did a little shopping in town.

Then we all met up and ate lunch together at The Pink Store.  There were even some mariachi singers.

After eating, shopping, touring around the town, we all decided to take a lift on the pink cart back to the border crossing.

After crossing the border, we all got back in the van to head back to Santa Fe.  We arrived in the evening back to the Beyond Borders Dental office where we said our goodbyes.

 

Time to head back to Santa Fe!

 

Overall, I’d say Beyond Borders Dental concierge service was excellent!  What a great service to have some people vet the dentist, vet the clinics, have it all set up.  You’ve got a place to stay. You’ve got your meals set up.  What else can you ask for?

 

The folks at Beyond Borders Dental took good care of us!

 

Plus some really pretty women to bring us down here and chat and laugh and have a good time.  So, it’s kind of like a party on wheels coming down and we’re well taken care of and it’s really appreciated.

 

Check out Palomas for dental work. It’s a great value.

 

If somebody were to ask me about going to Mexico for dental work, I would say come do it.  I think that it’s a great value and these people are professional.  I think I’m going to be very happy with my results.  I would highly recommend it.

    • We recommend having a passport however many of our clients have told us that they have crossed the border with their drivers license and birth certificate without any problems. Feel free to give our office a call at (505) 738-7770 for more info.

    • Each patient is unique so each dental plan and cost is unique. The first step is to make an appointment for an evaluation. Our dentists would need X-rays of your jaw, models of your teeth, and a digital record of your bite and the forces that are affecting your bite. Once we have your X-rays and past records necessary to diagnose your problem, our dentists can work with you to formulate a treatment plan that works for you and within your budget.

    • The cost for crowns in our Palomas clinics are typically less expensive and yet high quality. For example, a porcelain crown is $260. If you would like to learn more please call our main office at 505-738-7770 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

    • Our general pick-up site for Albuquerque proper is at Nativo Lodge, 6000 Pan American Freeway NE. However, we also pick up just off the highway in Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, and other locations. If you are outside of Albuquerque, please let us know and we can make special arrangements for you.
