If you have recent X-rays or a CT scan (six months or less) from your current dentist, we recommend that you email us a copy so we can forward it to our dental office prior to your scheduled appointment with our dentists. The more information they have on a new patient, the less time they need to do an initial assessment. Still, depending on the quality of X-rays and/or CT scan, additional X-rays may be necessary. In addition, if you have a recent dental treatment proposal from your dentist, please email us a copy because this may be helpful for our dentists. This information is used to get you a preliminary evaluation and estimated price quotation so you can see just how much you may save by using the approved Beyond Borders Dental offices in Mexico. This can give you the confidence that you have had a proper diagnosis prior to any dental work in Mexico, and should be an initial step for getting dental work in the US as well.
A dental treatment proposal usually costs between $50-$150 from a US dentist, although some dentists will do that as part of a check-up. In any case, the dental treatment proposal should include all treatment/procedures to be done, with the ADA codes and the price for each service.
Note that even in the US, diagnoses can differ, and once you check in with our dental office in Mexico, the dentist may recommend either more or less work than your dental treatment proposal called for or often times, more options. It is up to you to decide whether to do exactly what your dental treatment plan proposed, or modify the plan based on the recommendations of the Mexican dentist. See a more detailed discussion of why diagnoses can differ in our “What About the Quality?” section.
