You’re Going to Mexico? Is it Safe to Travel to Mexico!
It can be intimidating for many folks who haven’t traveled to foreign countries. But when you realize that you can’t afford much-needed dental work or prefer not to take a second mortgage on your home but know you can’t put off your oral health any longer, you are faced with making some tough decisions.
Typically, after deciding to go to Mexico for dental work, the next step is deciding where to stay, how to get to the destination of the dental clinic in Mexico, how to get to/from your dental appointments, where to eat, and what to expect so you can plan a safe and comfortable trip. As part of our referral services, we continuously monitor the local area on important things that may directly impact our patients traveling to our dental clinics in Mexico. After all, we not only want you to get the best dental care in Mexico, but we want you to ensure you also have a great experience!
It’s not easy to know what each person’s travel needs and expectations are. Add to that seasonal price fluctuation and the ever-changing COVID requirements, especially for international travel destinations. All this can seem overwhelming and scary, right? So even though the appeal of saving lots of money on dental care by going to Mexico is appealing, if you’re not well-informed and feel safe, you may not feel it’s worth taking the chance.
The good news is, that’s our expertise, and we’re focused on limited locations so we can easily help our patients plan for their trip to Mexico. Moreover, we’re your ambassador throughout the process, even after you return home. You have our word.
If you’ve decided to go to Mexico and want to take advantage of our personalized referral services, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- As of August 2021, we have three vetted dental clinics in Mexico: Juárez, Los Algodones, and Cancun, Mexico.
- You’re responsible for the costs of transportation and hotel accommodations to the dental clinic in Mexico. Once you arrive, our team takes care of your local transportation to/from your dental appointments at no cost. If you need an airport shuttle service, we can arrange this for you for an additional fee.
- If you’re not comfortable being on international flights, we have dental clinics in Juárez and Los Algodones, Mexico. These locations are known as “border-crossing” destinations; you can walk or drive across the U.S./Mexico border.
- The dental clinic in Juárez is located about 15 minutes across the border in El Paso, Texas. The dental clinic drivers provide complimentary transfers across the border from El Paso and return you to your hotel or pick-up point in El Paso after your appointment. Most of our patients stay at the Chase Suites of El Paso Residental Hotel.
- Our vetted dental clinic in Los Algodones (AKA Molar City), Mexico, is seven miles south of Yuma, Arizona. Patients can fly into Yuma or Phoenix and drive to the border, park their car in a parking lot on the U.S. side and walk across the bridge to Mexico. A patient care coordinator from our dental clinic will meet you on the Mexico side and escort you to the dental clinic in Los Algodones.
- There’s a popular hotel in Los Algodones foreigners often use, California Comfort & Suites. They provide a complimentary shuttle from the border to the dental clinic. Another hotel located on the U.S. side, near the border, is Quechan Casino Resort.
- For those who want to combine their dental care with a vacation, we have a vetted clinic in Cancun, one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. Patients who travel to our Cancun dental clinic must reserve their international flights and accommodations. If you book a flight/hotel combination from a major online travel shopping company site like Expedia, Priceline, or Cheapflights, you can find great package deals.
- There are also brand new Airbnbs directly above our Cancun dental clinic.
