50 Things You Should Know About Getting Dental Care In Mexico

50 Things You Should Know About Getting Dental Care In Mexico

Are you considering traveling abroad for dental care? Maybe you’ve heard of dental tourism and you’re curious about how it works and how much you can save. Maybe you are planning a trip to Mexico for dental care and you’re wondering what to expect. Whatever the case, traveling abroad for dental care can be a great option for anyone needing quality dental care at a much more affordable price. Beyond Borders Dental has been a resource to thousands of dental patients, and we hope we can help you as well.

Here are some of the most important things you should know about getting your dental care in Mexico, in no particular order.

1. Is it safe to go to Mexico?

There is a lot of misinformation when it comes to the safety of Mexican dental tourism. Of course, there are parts of Mexico that are not recommended for tourists, but border-towns and popular tourist cities are very safe and cater to foreign dental patients. We closely monitor the locations where our approved dental clinics operate.

2. Will I get quality care from a highly-trained dentist in Mexico?

Well, maybe yes and maybe no, depending on where you go and who you see for your dental care. Dental tourism has become so popular in the last two decades, there are a lot of popup “dentists” who are not qualified to practice dentistry. This can give dental care in Mexico an unfairly negative reputation. But this is not the norm. If you go to a licensed, experienced dentist, especially dentists that are vetted through our 4-step qualification process, you can receive high-quality care and save a lot of money.

3. How do I know if I’m getting a good price?

Prices will vary, in some cases extremely. Buyer beware, not just in Mexico but any country, including the U.S. Comparing prices is important but be sure you understand what you’re paying for. Not all dentists use the same quality of dental materials and not all doctors are equal. Regardless of what treatment or procedure you compare, be sure you’re comparing apples to apples. We can help you.

4. Do the dentist and staff speak English?

Yes, all our clinics are staffed with fluent, English speaking doctors and staff. Our dental clinics are in well-known dental tourism areas such as those that have easy access to the U.S./Mexican border, or established tourist destinations, and are providing dental care to American tourists who visit frequently.

5. Are the dental clinics clean and professional?

Yes, otherwise, why would Americans keep going to Mexico, right?

6. Do they use modern, high-tech equipment?

Our vetted clinics are well equipped with some of the latest diagnostic equipment, i.e. X-ray machines, 3D cone beam digital imaging, and sophisticated ZirkonZahn systems to produce perfect dental prostheses.

7. Do they use the same hygienic/sterilization techniques as American dentists?

The safety and health of our patients has always been a top priority for Beyond Borders Dental. That’s why we vetted our dental clinics even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Our 4-Step Evaluation Process has consistently made the care you receive both safe and comfortable.

8. What about water filtration systems?

If you’re worried about getting sick from drinking the water in Mexico, you will be happy to know that water is filtered through systems to keep it safe and potable.

9. Can I really save thousands of dollars?

The national average cost for a dental crown in the US is $1,200 to $2000; in Mexico it’s $250 to $600. A full set of traditional dentures can cost up to $5,000 in U.S.—about $600 in Mexico. If you need major dental work, you can get affordable, high-quality dental care and highly likely save thousands of dollars going to dental clinics in our program. On average, our patients save 50%-75% on dental care in our dental clinics in Mexico. To learn more, click this link.

10. Does the lower cost equate to lower quality?

In the U.S. some of us were raised to believe that higher costs equal higher quality. This is not the case with dental care in Mexico. Several factors contribute to the price difference like a lower cost of living, rent, and salaries.

11. Is it common to travel to Mexico for dental treatment?

Tens of thousands of people travel to Mexico (and other foreign countries) for dental care every year.

12. Is it easy to access dental care in Mexico?

Some of the most popular locations for dental tourism in Mexico, Thailand, Costa Rica, and India. Of these, Mexico is by far the closest and most convenient option for Americans. It is the cheapest to travel to, and the closest location.

13. What are some benefits of using a referral service?

Before you book an appointment, it’s important to either go through a reputable dental referral agency or do thorough research on your own. An independent referral agency has no allegiance to anyone but you. Referral agencies should have already done due diligence before sending patients abroad for dental or medical care. They also can answer questions, give you general advice/recommendation, and are your point of contact should you need help, advocate on your behalf, and make sure you everything is going as planned.

14. How are you paid for your referral services?

We get asked this question all the time. We are compensated directly by the dental clinics. The benefit for us referring patients is we’re able to screen each patient, answer questions, and if they decide to use our clinics, we oversee every step to ensure everything goes smoothly.

15. Can I get an estimate from your agency to compare with other quotes?

Absolutely, and we encourage our patients to do just that. The more information you collect and understand about your options, the easier it will be to make the best, informed decision for you. The most important thing to remember is to compare apples to apples because there are a lot of misleading advertising.

16. It will be pain free (as dentistry can be)?

Most dentists in Mexico offer anesthesia options like in the U.S., including full sedation. Our dental clinics have trained anesthesiologist on staff.

17. Do Mexican dentists use the same materials as U.S. dentists?

From porcelain crowns to metal posts and dentures, our approved dentists use the exact same materials in your mouth as you would if you received dental care in the U.S.

18. What if I need more than one specialist?

Our clinics have dentists trained in all industry specialty fields and are equipped with all the necessary diagnostic equipment. If you need more than one specialist, they will be in the same clinic so you everything is done in one place. In rare cases where a specialist is not in the clinic but is needed, they will bring them to their clinic.

19. Can I get the same dental procedures in Mexico?

If you’re traveling abroad for dental work, it’s important to know that you can get all the same dental treatment options in Mexico as you can in the U.S.

20. Why is Mexico such a popular destination for dental treatment among seniors?

Seniors often live on a fixed income and delay much needed dental treatment due to high cost. This is why many seniors are choosing Mexico as their choice destination for taking care of their teeth as they age. With savings of up to 75% on major dental procedures like dental crowns, implants, and root canals, Mexico is a great option for most seniors.

21. Can I get cosmetic dental procedures?

Absolutely. The doctors who do veneers, whitening, and bonding are specially trained and certified in cosmetic procedures. You typically can save quite a lot of money on these procedures as well.

22. What about other dental specialists?

If you need an Orthodontist, Endodontist or Implantologist, you can schedule an appointment with them in the same visit, in the same clinic. In one of our dental clinics, there are 30 trained, full-time dentists practicing in all modalities of dentistry.

23. As an American, will I be treated well there?

As a dental tourist, you will be treated with the highest level of respect and care. You are the lifeblood of some Mexican cities’ livelihood.

24. Do they guarantee their dental services?

Our vetted, approved dentists guarantee their treatment and services up to four years. If something is not right, you can go back and have it corrected at no additional cost.

25. Do I need a passport?

Crossing into Mexico on a border-town, you don’t need to show any documents, however, crossing back from Mexico through a U.S. border, you will need proper documentation—a valid passport. Contrary to this law, since Americans have been crossing the northern border of Mexico for dental care, you can usually cross back into the U.S. with a valid driver’s license and a copy of your birth certificate. Talk with us about required documents you’ll need.

26. What about a visa; do I need one?

A passport is sufficient for border-towns. If you travel to our dental clinic in Cozumel, you definitely need a valid passport and a visa, which is handed out by flight attendants or upon arrival before clearing customs at the airport.

27. Show I take cash with me?

It’s always a good idea to have some cash when you’re traveling. Typically, you pay cash or credit card for services rendered during an appointment, but you’ll still want cash for incidentals throughout your time in Mexico. Most tourist destinations, and areas that see a lot of Americans take credit cards and often U.S. dollars as well. We don’t suggest carrying a large sum of cash.

28. Can I get medications there too?

Many Americans fill non-narcotic prescriptions across in Mexico. And if your dentist prescribes pain medications or other prescriptions, you can visit a Mexican pharmacy and fill your prescription at a reduced rate before you head home. Savings can be substantial.

29. How many trips will I need?

If you need extensive dental work, you might need to come back for a couple of visits. Still, in many cases the cost will still be lower than if you paid for the same work in the U.S. Once we have discussed your proposed treatment plan with you, we can advise you on the travel requirements.

30.How will I find my way around once I arrive?

Local transportation is complementary for patients. We will offer you a list of hotels our patients use and transportation to and from your hotel to the dental clinic is also complementary. This is another service we offer.

31. What about travel insurance?

Since dental tourism often includes flights and hotels, it’s a good idea to be prepared with travel insurance.

32. Can I make a vacation out of it?

If you’re going to be a “dental tourist,” you might as well enjoy the “tourist” part. Whether you lounge on the beach in Cozumel or take a weekend trip to Mexico, you’ll get to enjoy the festive Mexican culture, food, and people.

33. Will my dental insurance cover it?

In some cases, yes. Just be sure to check with your insurance provider before you travel and bring copies of any forms they require filled out for you to make a claim. We can advise you on this too. Or your dental insurance company might reimburse you. Again, call your agent to see if this is an option.

34. Is it easier to drive or fly to Mexico?

If you live in Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona you can easily drive to El Paso, Texas, and park. The Juárez dental clinic drivers offer transfers to/from El Paso to the clinic at no charge. If you want to go to Cozumel, there are direct flights from Miami, Florida, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Dallas, Texas. Once you arrive in Cozumel, the dental clinic representative will meet you and transfer you to your hotel; all local transportation to/from your hotel, and to/from your dental appointments are complementary.

You don’t have to plan it. If you work with a dental referral company, part of their services should include helping you arrange everything.

35. Can I get a price estimate before I go?

Beyond Borders Dental can help you get a free price quote. Keep in mind that our dentists use various sources of information. They use dental X-rays and 3-D cone beam CT scans, patients desired outcome, and most importantly they base their final decision after an in-office examination because so much information is collected during a physical examination including the actual examination each patients facial structure. Most price quotes we give our patients are within 10 to 15% accuracy.

36. So, are Americans happy with their dental treatment in Mexico?

According to a report commissioned by Families U.S.A., a Washington advocacy group for health-care issues, “About 90 percent [feel] the dental care they had received in Mexico had been good or excellent.” Our own internal review shows our clients are happy at an even higher rate. This exceeds satisfaction with U.S. dentists. Click this link to read the full report.

37. Why is it so much cheaper to get quality dental treatment in Mexico?

Some of this explained above (salary scale there, cost of living, rents, staff costs). Further, dental school is subsidized in Mexico. This contributes to lower costs and dentists who got to really focus on their schooling (instead of working multiple jobs and taking classes at the same time). The typical U.S. dentist leaves school with over $200,000 in loans in many cases. Guess how he is going to pay those loans back?

38. What is included in your referral services?

We’re here to help you find the best dental clinic for your personal needs, oversee the entire process of getting dental care in Mexico, and if needed, we’re your advocate—and our services are always free to our patients. You’re responsible for your travel to/from the destination city. If you need hotel accommodations, we can help with recommendations and lodging partners to save you money and assure you will be comfortable at a good rate. Local transfers to/from airports and dental appointments are always complimentary.

39. What if I can’t afford the procedure I want?

In some cases, more than one option is possible, or the procedure can be spread over a longer period to give you more time to save the money you need. Another option is consider a personal loan or try our lending affiliate, United Medical Care, to see if they can help you. Ultimately, you must decide for yourself what the best course of action is. We’re here to help you research and collect accurate information so you can make an informed decision. We’re here to help educate and guide you—and there’s never a fee for our referral services, the dental clinics compensate us directly.

40. How important is it to vet your dentist or dental referral agency?

This cannot be said enough. Make sure you are going to a trained, reputable dentist. Read reviews and do thorough research. A reputable dental referral agency is happy to show you their patient testimonials. Beyond Borders Dental makes actual site visits to all dental clinics in our program. We conduct interviews the doctors and staff, reviews their credentials, tours the facility, observes sterilization procedures, looks at the dental supplies, and monitors the satisfaction of our patients to assure the clinics we recommend meet our stringent standards.

41. How can I be sure I’m choosing a safe destination?

There are some border cities that are convenient to the US, but that we don’t recommend. The dental clinics in our program are in either safe border-towns or well-traveled tourist areas, and they are areas that frequently provide dental treatment to U.S. travelers.

42. How do I know I can trust what you tell me?

It’s not a secret about how many, and how easy it is to take advantage of unsuspecting people through deceiving marketing, especially on the Internet! We encourage you to do independent research about Beyond Borders Dental and dental clinics in our program. When we answer questions or advise, we can also provide you with our resources so you can check for yourself what we tell you is accurate. We’re not a corporate company sending patients to thousands of unvetted dental clinics everywhere—we’re an independent referral agency for the dental clinics we trust. We help screen patients, answer questions, guide them through the entire process from A to Z so they get personalize, accurate information. And, we also use the same dental clinics!

43. How do dental clinics in your program compare to dental offices in the U.S.?

Mexican dental clinics are modern and clean but may not be appointed like American dental offices. Most of our patients are pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, quality, and comfort they see in our dental clinics in Mexico.

44. Who does the actual dental procedures in your clinics?

In the U.S. we often experience dental assistants doing most of the procedures and the dentist only doing the final touches or more advanced procedures. In our dental clinics in Mexico, all the procedures are done by trained, experienced dentists.

45. What do I need to do to get started with Beyond Borders Dental?

The first thing you need to do is provide us with some basic contact information so we can get you in our system, click this link to send us your inquiry and we’ll get back to you via email usually within 24 hours. If you have a dental plan, X-rays, or a Cone Beam CT scan, we will provide you with an email to send these. Then your case will be forwarded to one of clinics in our program for an initial assessment by a doctor. Then we will email an estimated cost for your dental needs and if you like, you can speak with one of our patient care coordinators about your individual case. You’ll then have a ball-park figure of costs, so you do more price comparisons if you like.

46. Why is Mexico so popular with Americans for getting dental care abroad?

Mexico is among the cheapest locations with some of the most highly trained dental professionals worldwide. Other dental tourism hot spots like Costa Rica, Thailand, and India are often more expensive and require more time than traveling to Mexico.

47. How do I decide which location in Mexico to choose?

There are pros and cons to different locations, but the quality of dental care is equally comparable. If you live close to a border-town in the southern states or just don’t want to travel internationally, then our clinic in Juárez is a great option. If you’re looking to add a tropical vacation to your travel plans, then our dental clinic in Cozumel is perfect.

48. Can I get additional medical or cosmetic services in Mexico?

If you’re considering taking advantage of other medical services, talk with us. We already started doing our due diligence to expand our services to include non-invasive cosmetic procedures as well as common plastic surgeries.

49. Can bring a friend or family member to my dental appointment?

If you’re nervous about traveling abroad for dental care or just want to be accompanied we encourage you bring a friend or family member. Before the COVID pandemic bringing someone with you to the clinic was never an issue, however, for the protection and safety of everyone, our dental clinics have COVID guidelines and protocols in place. On a case by case basis, they will allow a friend or family member be in the clinic with you but please talk with them in advance so they can take protective measures to protect everyone.

50. I’m extremely nervous about getting the COVID virus. What are your clinics in Mexico doing to protect their patients?

This is a question we get asked all the time and for good reason—nobody wants to contract this virus, especially when travelling in foreign countries. We try to address these concerns through monitoring the situation globally and keep our patients updated on our website, click this link. The good news is as of September 2020, none of our patients, doctors or staff have contracted the COVID virus and continue to take is seriously.

You can now consider yourself an expert on dental tourism!  If you’d like to learn more about dental tourism or get a free assessment through Beyond Borders Dental, just click this link to get started.

    • Thank you for sending us your inquiry. Everybody’s dental care is unique to their individual case so it’s not possible to determine prices for all treatments. Moreover, our dentists need X-rays and history to determine their options, many times more than one option is possible, and to determine actual costs.

    • Hi Taek,

      You do not need dental insurance to get dental care in Mexico. In most cases, insurance companies do not cover much and they save more money having their treatment in Mexico and keeping their insurance as a backup plan for unexpected emergencies.

  1. Do you have information on the town Los Algodones Mexico? Do you offer shuttle service to there from Yuma, Arizona. Any information on this Mexican town would be helpful. Thank you. Also would like information on your financing Options.

    • Hi Suzi,

      We only have vetted and approved dental offices in Juarez and Los Algodones, Mexico and do not have any information on other locations. As for financing options, there is a link at the top of our home page that explains the financing options with our affiliate, United Medical Care. You can get pre-approved online too.

    • Hi Matt,

      Your dental records, including X-rays belong to you and only you can request your dental records. Once you have your records you can then forward them to us.

    • Hi Monique,

      Following are estimated prices for dental care/procedures you may need. Note that the actual costs may vary depending on your personal needs; however, if you can send us a dental treatment plan from your US dentist including X-rays, we can give you a more accurate price quotation. It is important to have an evaluation of what is going on so you can make an informed decision about your dental care options.

      Concerning cosmetic work such as veneers, there are a couple of possibilities. One less expensive option is using a composite bonding material, our dentist can correct minor imperfections on the surface of teeth and the results can be excellent. This procedure costs $150 per tooth and requires only one visit.

      Note: Full cosmetic veneers (porcelain material) similar to the US treatment, it requires two visits and costs $440 per tooth. The cost for teeth whitening is $260 *Zoom whitening.

      • I guess you didn’t read Monique well. She’s Canadian, and so am I. We’re looking for dental treatment, departure from Canada.
        In my case it’s a crown and a surgery.

        • Hi Maurício;

          Thank you for your message. We receive hundreds of inquiries weekly and answer each one, however, without your full name or email, it’s not possible to personally respond. For personal questions such as your we need additional information. Please use our Price Quote form. There is an additional comments section on this form if you need and we will get back to you within 48 hours. Thank you!

        • Hi Robin,

          Prices vary from place to place. Other factors that may affect the cost includes what type of material is used to make the veneer, (zirconia, porcelain or resin-based), the expertise of the dentist and how many veneers you get at one time. In all fairness, when doing price comparisons for any product or service, be sure to get all the information for a comparison.

          If you have more questions please contact us at [email protected] or call (505) 738-7770.

  2. My husband needs full mouth implants. I need 5 molars and two other broken teeth replaced and veneers can you give a rough estimate. All extractions will be done one month before we go.

    • Hi Ramona,

      Everybody’s dental care is unique to his or her individual case so it’s not possible to determine prices for all treatments. Moreover, our dentists need X-rays and history to determine their options, many times more than one option is possible, and to determine actual costs.

      That said, what we provide is a price comparison chart for general procedures and some examples of our past client’s savings on our home page to give people estimated prices for the most requested procedures.

      If you would like us to send you an estimated price quote for you and your husband’s cases, please complete and submit our information form. Go to our home page and in the upper right corner is an orange button that has (More Info) on it. Click on this button.

  3. Mexico is one of the places my wife and I wants to visit for our next vacation. Considering the fact that I have some dental problems I need to resolve, I might get it done at Mexico.

    • Hi Benjamin,

      If you know where to go in Mexico for dental treatment you can get quality, affordable care and save a lot of money. We have taken hundreds of patients to our vetted dental office and our patient base continues to grow.

    • Great question, Kay. Each Mexico dental office in our program is carefully vetted through a four-step evaluation process to assure the quality of services. In addition the dentist in Mexico guarantee their services. Our assessment includes:
      1) Site visits to all Mexico dental clinics in our program.

      3) Periodic reviews of dental practices with our dental advisory board.
      4) Careful monitoring of results from clients who use our dentist in Mexico to assure the continued high level of professionalism and quality of work being performed.

    • Excellent question Jane, if you are traveling from outside New Mexico or Texas, we highly recommend you book an appointment at least two weeks in advance, and this also depends on your case. We have a comprehensive checklist we use to help our patients with their travel plans. Without knowing your individual case this is the best answer I can give you at this time. If you would like more information on to plan for getting dental treatment in Mexico please contact us at [email protected] or call (505) 738-7770, Monday through Friday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm (Mountain Time).

    • When it comes to cosmetic procedures such as veneers, there are a couple of possibilities. One less expensive option is using a composite bonding material, our dentist can correct minor imperfections on the surface of teeth and the results can be excellent. This procedure costs $150 per tooth and requires only one visit. Full cosmetic veneers (porcelain material) similar to the US treatment, it requires two visits and costs $440 per tooth.

  4. Can I have veneers removed as they are too old and would want implants is that possible. The veneers were too big made me look like I had buck teeth

    • Hi Margie, good question. Our dentists are very skilled and can do just about any treatment, however, they would need more information on your individual case before they could make an assessment and/or recommendation. If you would like to get a better understanding of your options and a price estimate, please submit your contact details to us, click here, and if you have a dental treatment plan and X-rays, email those too. Then we will forward your case details to our Patient Care Coordinator who will give you a no-cost phone consultation to discuss your case. She also can give more information on treatment options, approximate prices and can answer other questions you may have.

  5. I am interested in having 4 veneers removed and replaced and teeth whitening. How much would that cost and how long?

    • Hi Stephanie,

      Without an examination by one of our dentists, it would be very difficult to give you a price estimate on your request. In most cases where veneers are placed the natural tooth has to be prepped, remove some of the tooth surfaces. It may not be feasible for you to have the veneers removed and whitened. If you would like to get a better understanding of your options and a price estimate, please submit your contact details to us, click here, and if you have a dental treatment plan and X-rays, email those too. Then we will forward your case details to our Patient Care Coordinator who will give you a no-cost phone consultation to discuss your case. She also can give more information on treatment options, approximate prices and can answer other questions you may have.

  6. We are coming from Houston, TX to visit and explore dentistry services in Mexico near the border. What is the best way to connect a single source to find few dentists to choose from.

    • Thank you, Irfan, for sending us your question. We have a dental clinic on the border of El Paso and Juarez that has thirty full-time dentists trained in every speciality and has all the latest equipment in their office. We refer 90% of our clients to this clinic with great success. If you would like to speak with someone about this clinic please let us know and we will be happy to put you in touch with the patient care coordinator.

    • If you live in Texas the closest dental clinic, vetted and in our program, is located in Juarez, Mexico on the border of Texas. You need to get to El Paso and their drivers provide transfers to/from the clinic, at no additional costs. This way you don’t have to worry about traveling alone in Juarez.

    • Hi Robin,

      The cost for implants at our dental clinics in Mexico start at $1800 U.S. dollars and it includes the surgical placement of a premium implant (Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Biohorizons or Zimmer), abutment, healing cap, permanent porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crown and follow up appointments.

      If you have more questions please contact us at [email protected] or call (505) 738-7770.

  7. I live in Dallas, TX. I know I need 1 implant and a couple of root canals and crowns. I am also interested in veneers for my front top/bottom teeth along with fillings for some cavities. I am concerned because I have Type1 Diabetes so I would want a family member with me during the procedure and also are the dentist trained for patients with medical issues?

    • Hi Jose,

      Our dental clinics require patients to fill out medical forms before having any treatment. Based on your medical history, our doctors are qualified and experienced to safely do dental procedures. In some cases, a letter from your physician may be required. A family member can be present with you during the procedure with advance approval from the doctor.

      If you’d like to continue this discussion, please click this link to provide us with your case details or contact us at [email protected] or call (505) 738-7770.

    • Hi Simba,

      Thank you for your question, we get this from many patients. The first thing you should do is get an assessment of your individual case by an experienced Implantologist. Then based on what they see, they are best to inform you of your options, estimated cost, and answer other questions you may have. If you’d like to get a no-cost evaluation please click this link and we will get back to shortly with additional instructions.

  8. Questions:a)would adding a veneer or a composite bonding material to a tooth:
    1) help to protect a cracked tooth- tooth was cracked years ago playing sports.
    2) extend a lower worn down tooth- have 2
    b) what about security? Gangs,etc. years ago we crossed the border west of Brownsville & had a good time. These days it is questionable.
    c) what about traveling in & out of Mexico & the virus?

    • Hi Richard,

      Thank you for your questions. We don’t answer questions specifically related to an individual case because this blog forum is for general questions viewable to the public. If you’d like a free price quote for your case, please click this link.

      We have referred thousands of patients to our dental clinics in Mexico without incident. Moreover, our dental clinics are located in safe areas and patients are escorted by the clinic staff to/from their appointment. To learn about traveling in/out of Mexico and the virus, please visit our Getting Dental Care in Mexico with COVID.

    • Hi Richard,

      We can not offer diagnosis, treatment recommendations or costs on website. Only a trained doctor can evaluate patients. The other thing we are not able to help you with is recommending a dental clinic in Nogales. We only refer patients to dental clinics in our programs that have been approved through our 4-step vetting process. The nearest clinic we can refer your friend to is in Juarez, Mexico.

      If you have more questions or would like to talk with us, please call our office at (505) 738-7770 or send us an email at [email protected].

  9. With the Covid 19 restrictions now in place is daily travel for dental work still being allowed or are the borders completely closed now?

    • Hi Neal,

      There are misconceptions about the ability to travel to Mexico. Essential travel is allowed and hasn’t been interrupted, even since the COVID Virus pandemic started. Medical and dental care is considered essential travel so our dental clinics are taking patients, however, under the current conditions, we’re recommended patients to visit our dentists in Mexico for essential dental treatment only. For a complete, updated review of all we are doing regarding the Covid-19, please click this link.

      If you have more questions or would like to talk with us, please call our office at (505) 738-7770 or send us an email at [email protected].

  10. I am a single male senior, I am in need of extensive dental treatment. I have hearing problems and traveling alone is a frightening thought. Do you have companions
    that could accompany me all the time I am in Mexico?

    • Hi Dino,

      Travelling abroad can be a scary experience for anyone and we understand your fears. To help alleviate these fears, all our patients are met and escorted by one of staff from the dental clinic. Additionally, their drivers pick you up in the clinic car and transport you to/from the dental clinic. This ensures you’re never alone or have to drive in Mexico.

      I hope this helps and eases your fear of going to Mexico for dental care.

    • Hi James,

      Thank you for contacting us. We’re here to help you find the best dental clinic for your personal needs, oversee the entire process of getting dental care in Mexico, and if needed, we’re your advocate — and our services are always free to our patients.

      We don’t have a vetted dental clinic in Cancun, however, we provide complimentary transportation from Cancun to Cozumel for our dental patients Cozumel is less congested and quiet. The drive is about two hours each way. For those looking for more solitude, Cozumel is a great option. If Cozumel interests you, please let us know.

    • Hi Robert,

      This is a great question! If a patient is a good candidate for any implant procedure, including full-mouth restoration and it is done correctly by a trained, experienced Implantologist, it should last a life time. Patients also should be in good general health and avoid tobacco substances. Moreover, we recommend if you have this procedure done in Mexico to finish it with the same doctor so you don’t void the warranty.
