Now is A Time To Smile

A REASON TO SMILE

Who says Dental care should always be done locally. A Reason To Smile for Seniors is Getting Dental Work in Mexico at the United States-Mexico border. Traveling for dental work is popular and with proper planning will be a rewarding experience.

Once I started researching dental work in Mexico I learned many well run dental practices have been in business at various border communities for years. These dental practices have satisfied returning United States clients. These companies promote major cost savings to the viewer as an incentive to make the trip.

For example:

Root Canal Therapy in Mexico $280 United States $1050

Dental Implant Placement in Mexico $795 United States $2250

From my research I found Mexico Dental clinics at the border appear offering patients more definite estimates for expected treatments. Also a reason to smile.

Besides general cleaning other specialized procedures are available dental implants, cosmetic dentistry procedures, porclian crowns, bridges, acrylic dentures and more. These procedures are done by majority of dentists schooled and trained in the United States.

Dental work at these border towns is so popular you can find reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. When researching this topic look into terms such as Medical Vacations, Medical Travel or Medical Tourism. You will find A Reason To Smile.

TRAVEL

Travel information may be found by visiting dental websites and viewing online information.

Driving Instructions, hotels and transportation services may be part of the dentist price.

For example, a dental clinic in Tijuana, Mexico may arrange a pick up at a location in San Diego and return you after the appointment.

Also, it would be smart taking your passport and make sure you obtain a Mexican tourist card. Check with your choice of dentist and Mexican authorities before traveling.

Choose a Mexico Dental Destination as Close to Home as possible because a dental implant procedure can take as many as three visits separated by several months. It makes sense to choose a destination you can visit often.

Los Algodones, across the border from Yuma Ariz. has more dentists per capita than anyplace else in the world. There are over 60 dental clinics. Los Algodones located approximate 16 miles west of Yuma, Arizona.

If hotel accommodations are required

Trip Advisor recommends Hacienda Los Algodones. transportation bus service from Yuma .

For people driving from the West Coast, Tijuana is a popular choice.

Bus service from San Diego to Tijuana visit Greyhound website

For people on the East Coast, Cancun may be convenient.

INSURANCE COVERAGE

Inquire about U.S. insurance certification. A large number of fraud cases have occurred in past years, some U.S. insurance companies will NOT honor work performed in a Mexican clinic. But many Mexican dentist do accept and are qualified to receive insurance support. Inquire before the first examination and be clear about what the dentist will and will not accept.

Study, read and research everything regarding the Pros and Cons. Please contact me with any questions or if you just want to communicate.

On a related final note, here’s the question of the day: Do you see yourself making the Mexican border town trip for dental work or leave your money at the dentist in your home town? Please Leave your answer in the comments. Wayne Hartunian
