Don’t Put Off Care Because of the Cost When You Could Save at our Dental Clinics
If you need major dental treatment, you can get affordable, high-quality dental care and very likely save thousands of dollars going to dental clinics in our dental referral program. On average, our patients save 50%-75% on dental care in our dental clinics in Mexico.
When the founders of Beyond Borders Dental learned from their local dentist that they needed four dental crowns and it would cost over $6000, they began asking friends about the possibility of going to Mexico for dental care. They were told that many Americans go to Mexico for dental treatment and happy with the results.
They traveled there to see for themselves. After examination, the quote for all four dental crowns was $920, a savings of over $5000! Another member of the Beyond Borders Dental staff had experienced similar savings with the dental care her father needed. The price in the U.S. was over $20,000. They too decided to have his treatment in Mexico — it was less than $2000, a savings of over $18,000. These are the actual savings of members of our staff.
“I absolutely LOVE Beyond Borders Dental! They saved me over $10,000 in dental care in Mexico! My service was handled very professionally…”

Here are Some Examples of Patient’s Savings at our Dental Clinics in Mexico
A 40-year old woman from Arkansas sent us her dental treatment plan with proposed cost of $6,013. The quote on the exact same procedures from our dental clinic in Mexico was $1,590, a savings of $4,423 — or about 74% savings.
The dental treatment plan from an engineer in North Carolina included 12 dental crowns and his dentist gave him a quote for over $22,000. The quote for dental treatment in Mexico was $2,190, a savings of over $20,000 on exactly the same treatment!
These are actual quotes from our dentists in Mexico based on dental treatment plans from U.S. dentists. When the savings from the cost of one dental crown alone can be over $1000, this can be a strong incentive to consider the option of going to Mexico for dental work offered through our dental referral services.
Why is Dental Work Much Cheaper In Mexico?
A number of factors contribute to the large savings for getting dental care in Mexico. Because of the support of the Mexican government, dental education in a public dental institution is free or subsidized. In return, the graduating dentist in Mexico provides a year of free dental community service.
By contrast, U.S. dentists leave school with $150,000 or more in loans to repay. Dentists in Mexico are not required to have mandatory malpractice insurance, which is very expensive, and their society as a whole is not litigious in the way the U.S. is. In addition, both labor and real estate, including rent, are much less expensive in Mexico.
The government also monitors and restricts excessive profits on medications and pharmaceutical products used in dentistry. And finally, the cost of living for dentists and their staff is considerably less expensive in Mexico.
We’ve carefully selected the best dental clinics in Mexico for our dental referral program. With Beyond Borders Dental you don’t have to sacrifice quality dental care to save money.
What Other Costs Do I Have to Receive Dental Care in Mexico?
Keep in mind that you are receiving your services away from home. There is a trade-off for the substantial savings you get in terms of the additional time involved and costs for transportation, lodging, and meals. In most cases, these costs are dwarfed by the savings you can realize by having the procedures done at one of the Beyond Borders Dental dental clinics in Mexico. Even one crown is less expensive when including all travel costs.
If you can provide us with current X-rays (60 days or less) and if possible, a dental treatment plan from your local dentist, our dentists can usually evaluate your case and provide you with an estimated quote. In many cases, you will know how many visits are necessary to complete your dental treatment in Mexico.
What if I Have Dental Insurance? Will I be Covered in Mexico?
In terms of using your dental insurance in Mexico, the answer is yes—sometimes. They can not file a claim directly to your insurance provider, however, some clinics will help you by providing copies treatment records and doctor’s signature required by your insurance provider—assuming your policy accepts claims for treatment you have done abroad..
Dental Insurance is not required in Mexico so most clinics are not familiar with how it works. If you’re considering using dental insurance in Mexico we strongly recommend you contact your dental insurance provider and ask if your policy covers getting dental care abroad. Please remember, it’s your responsibility to process your insurance claims with your dental insurance provider.
Many people find dental insurance barely worth the savings because of the limited coverage, even for U.S. dental services.
