Why is Dental Work cheaper in Mexico?

How is it possible for dentistry costs in Mexico to be much cheaper from the prices in many cities inside the U.S.? Here is a list of top 3 reasons why dental work in Mexico is much cheaper.

1. No Insurance Requirements

In the medical field in Mexico, insurance is not obligatory, you can enter any hospital as long as you can pay for it and if not, citizens have access to any government clinic. In the U.S. the maximum dental insurance a year is up to $1,500 which is not really that beneficial because it doesn't cover a reasonable amount.

2. Affordable Dental Education

A big reason why dental education is more affordable is that the government subsidizes many dental students during their studies and don't have big loans to pay at the end of their professional careers.

3. Mexican Real Estate is cheaper

The high expenses of rents in the U.S. will indirectly affect your bill with any dentist, lower costs in Mexico won't.
