Los Algodones is a small town in Baja California, Mexico, just right next to the Yuma, AZ Border. Thanks to its convenient location it has become very popular among dental tourists, who also call this town Molar City. This name was given many years ago because the town has more than 300 dental clinics, and many of them offer the same high-quality treatments as the ones in the United States and Canada, but the prices are way more affordable. Plus, this small border town does not only has inexpensive dental care, it also has low-cost shopping places, restaurants and drug stores where you can get prescription medicines.
