If you wake up in the middle of the night with tooth pain or avoid chewing on one side of your mouth because you need to see the dentist, then it’s time to bite the bullet and make an appointment. Putting off the dental care you need only makes the problem worse. Not only does your pain continue interrupting your life on a regular basis, but the original problem gets worse, exacerbating the pain and increasing your eventual dental bill. But if you’re short on cash, dental care can easily break the bank.
Thankfully, if you life in Santa Fe, New Mexico, you have another option. You can cross the border into Palomas, Mexico where there are many low cost dentists. Dental tourism has increased steadily over the last two decades as more and more residents of towns like Santa Fe and Albuquerque have realized that they can get quality dental treatment at a fraction of the price in Mexico. If you choose to participate in dental tourism, you’ll want to work with a dental concierge company. They take care of the whole process from start to finish to make sure you work with a reputable and safe dentist.
When you leave Santa Fe and travel to Mexico to see a low cost dentist, you’ll save a lot of money. Depending on the type of care you need, you can save anywhere from 50%-80% on your total dental bill. In Santa Fe it can be challenging to find a low cost dentist. On average, procedures like root canals and crowns in Santa Fe cost around $1,200 without insurance.
At Beyond Borders Dental, you’ll be matched with a low cost dentist in Mexico, a few hours south of Santa Fe, who will charge you between $260-$330. If you need a dental implant, you will pay $1,500 and up (instead of the average U.S. cost of $2,250). A full set of dentures in Santa Fe costs $3,000-$5,000, while dentures starts at just $990 in Palomas, Mexico.
Before you head from Santa Fe to Mexico to see a low cost dentist, here are a few things you’ll want to know.
You’ll Receive Quality Care
Dentists in Mexico receive the same type of training as dentists in Santa Fe. When you receive your dental treatment, your dentist will use comparable equipment and anesthesia as your dentist in Santa Fe would use. The reason the costs are so much lower in Mexico has to do with a few factors, none of which are the quality of care.
First, the cost of dental school is subsidized by the Mexican government. This means that unlike dentists in Santa Fe, when new dentists in Mexico begin their practice, they don’t have to pay off hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt, so they can afford to charge less. Also, the cost of living is much lower in Mexico than in Santa Fe. Finally, the Mexican government places caps on how much dentists in Mexico can charge for their services. This is not the case in Santa Fe. This means you can get low cost yet high quality dental treatment in Mexico.
The Process is Simple
When you work with Beyond Borders Dental to book your appointment with a low cost dentist, we’ll take care of all the whole process from start to finish.

There is some speculation about whether or not dental care in Mexico is safe. As long as you go to a reputable dentist, you will be very safe. Since dental care in Mexico has become so popular over the last two decades, a lot of fake dentists have popped up claiming to be qualified and fully trained. At Beyond Borders Dental, we only work with reputable dentists in Palomas, Mexico. You can rest easy knowing you’re in capable hands. Palomas is also a safe location for dental tourists. Unlike the large tourist trap of Tijuana, Palomas is a small town of only 5,000 people.
