How Much Does Dental Work in Mexico Cost?

How Much Does Dental Work in Mexico Cost?

Have you been avoiding going to the dentist for many years? When the time came for you to assist to your dental appointment, did your doctor tell you need extensive dental procedures you cannot afford? This might be a great time for you to get a dental vacation in Mexico and save up to 80% in dental work.

Many people in the United States and Canada don’t count with a dental insurance and those who do will only cover part of the most basic treatments. Still, it can be a little bit overpriced.

Some, have found an alternative that can benefit their pockets in a positive way. Dental Tourism has become a popular way to receive high quality dental care at a very affordable price and Mexico is one of the main destinations.

Thanks to its proximity between countries, Americans and Canadians have chosen towns near the Mexican border to receive their dental treatments and are able to save up thousands of dollars with amazing results.

Why Are Dental Treatments in Mexico So Cheap?

Sometimes, when we pay less for something, we expect them to break at any minute or in this case, that the results might turn out to be not so good. When it comes to dental care in Mexico, you will find out that it will truly be the opposite.

These are the main reasons why dental work in Mexico costs are so low:

  • The government subsidizes many dentists’ education, so when they graduate, they don’t have big student loans and don’t have the need to overcharge for their services.
  • There are no insurance requirements for dental care.
  • The cost of living in this country is cheaper.

Dental clinics in Mexico keep the same standards as the top countries, their prices are just a perk of getting medical attention with them.

At places like at Sani Dental Group, doctors are graduated from the top universities in Mexico and they are constantly updating and taking courses at prestigious universities in the United States such as Harvard School of Dental Medicine.

Also, the instruments and materials that their specialists use, are brought from the United States to preserve the quality of every procedure.

You can save up by getting a dental treatments in Mexico and the same quality will be applied as in your country!

Is it safe?

When you are travelling outside your country, it is normal that some concerns regarding our safety might come up. Sometimes we hear things at the news that can make us a little nervous, but people who have received treatments outside their country of origin have expressed that there is really nothing to worry about.

Places like Los Algodones can be very safe to travel to. It is a calm and colorful town near the border from Yuma, Arizona, also known as the dental capital of the world.

Los Algodones offers the best restaurants, bars and souvenir stands that will be just a small walking distance away from you. People will be friendly to you and the best thing is that there will be no language barrier because almost everyone speaks English.

Check out some videos of happy patients talking about the safety in this beautiful town!

How to Look For the Best Option for You?

If your mind is already made and you decided to get your dental attention in Mexico, we recommend you to check a few things before choosing. Usually, we choose clinics by recommendations from our relatives, acquaintances or close friends we can trust, but in case you are the first person to get a dental holiday, this tips will be useful:

  • It is important to check patients’ reviews for you to make the right call. Checking if other patients like you were satisfied or not, will help you to get a better idea of the attention you could receive and also about the quality of the treatments they offer.
  • Don’t be embarrassed to ask about their doctor’s credentials. Not only will it help you to feel more comfortable, but you will see what kind of preparation the dentist has and see if their skills are the proper ones for the treatment you wish to have.
  • Check out the clinic’s associations. To make sure the quality will be preserved, it is important to review the clinic’s credentials such as the American Dental Association.
  • Warranty. Trustful clinics will give you warranty for all of their treatments. It is important that a clinic can guarantee that their procedure will be done correctly and in case you are not satisfied, you could be able to get it fixed.
  • Choose a nearby, calm and budget friendly location. Even though you are saving money on dental care, there are some locations in Mexico that could be more expensive than other ones. If you are planning to stay a couple of days make sure you pick a place where you can walk around and relax, and if it’s a quick trip to the dentist, maybe something close from your hometown will suit you better.

It is important that you feel comfortable with your decision and the clinic you choose is as professional as can be.
