Dental Work in Mexico - Myths and Facts

Mexico has become one of the main destinations to get dental treatments. Thousands of people come here every day looking for high-quality dental work at an affordable price.

Yet, there are a lot of rumors about Mexico's dentists and their practices. Even when a lot of those rumors are myths, many people believe them, which makes them doubtful about traveling to Mexico.

To make it all clear, here we share with you the myths and facts you should know about getting dental work in Mexico.

Myth: Dental Work in Mexico Isn't as Good as in the US

People who say they wouldn't come to Mexico to get dental treatments usually think that the dental work is not good enough. Well, that's, in fact, a myth.

Just Los Algodones receives more than 3,000 people every day looking for dental work and that number is rising. Many of them are even coming back for a second, third, or fourth time. Why would all these people come here if dental work isn't good?

The fact is that the quality of dental treatments in Mexico is as good as in the US, and sometimes even better. Clinics like Sani Dental Group are certified by the American Dental Association because of the high standards of its procedures.

Fact: Dental Treatments Are up to 70% Less Expensive than in the US 

In addition to the high quality of dental work, by coming to Mexico you can save up to 70% on dental treatments. This is one of the reasons why Mexico has become such a popular place to get dental work.

Even when you consider price and flight expenses, you can realize that you're saving a lot by traveling to get dental treatments.

Myth: You Can Only Pay with Mexican Currency

We get a lot of questions about this subject from patients who are worried about changing their money.

The fact is that many dental clinics in Mexico dedicated to dental tourism charge their services in US dollars. This is to make everything easier for patients.

Clinics like Sani Dental Group accept debit/credit cards and checks (to read more about it, visit Payment Methods). In Los Algodones, you can pay for food, lodging, groceries, and more things with US dollars, so if you're thinking about coming here, you shouldn't worry about it.

Fact: Dentists in Mexico Guarantee Their Work

This is another common question. The fact that you come to Mexico and leave days after (or even the same day) doesn't mean that you can't get a warranty for your dental work.

The best dental clinics in Mexico will always give you a warranty for the dental treatment you get. So you can trust that if something goes wrong with your dental work, the dental clinic will fix their work.

Of course, you need to make sure the clinic you're choosing offers a warranty, so research well when you're looking for a dental clinic in Mexico.

Myth: Traveling to Mexico Isn't Safe 

As we mentioned above, every day more people are coming to get dental treatments in Mexico. A lot of people have the idea that coming to Mexico isn't a good idea, but all these people coming daily are the confirmation of Mexico being a safe place.
