Read what patients say about dentists in Los Algodones and Mexico dental tourism from Certified Doctors & Dentists Internationale' www.certifieddentsts.org/
The following Los Algodones dentist reviews were submitted to Certified Doctors & Dentists Internationale during 2015-16.
Cabo and Puerto Vallarta dentists report seeing patients from Hawaii, Maine, Alaska and Florida and everywhere in between. And from one end of Canada to the other. Los Algodones draws patients primarily from the Southwest and Midwest. And dental prices everywhere in Mexico are about the same with Cancun and Cabo being about 5-10% higher than the others due to the higher cost of living in a resort town. Tijuana/San Diego dentists are priced comparable to Los Algos dentists. -ed
WAGES have certainly NOT gone up that much in 35 years. Ridiculous. This is fast becoming a country where only the very rich will be able to afford basic dental care (and dental insurance usually only pays about a third of the cost). Just pure greed. You can't do it yourself, so they just (expletive deleted) you.
I knew a dentist in Cabo who drove 240 miles round-trip through a hurricane to get crowns from the lab in La Paz so he could finish in time for the patient to catch his flight to Alberta. One thing I've noticed over the years is that Mexican dentists really appreciate foreign patients. -ed
Dentists in Manila use the same equipment and materials ordered from the same catalogs as the dentists order from in the US. Many go to dental school in the US. Contact Certified Docotrs and Dentists Internationale' for free estimates and referrals. Some treatment prices are half what they are in Mexico. -ed
Don’t get excited because a journalist who wanted an easy story re-warmed an old story about cheap dentists in Los Algodones. It's about $100 more airfare flying to Cabo or Puerto Vallarta instead of Yuma or Phoenix and you can have a world-class Mexican dental vacation. Even Tijuana is a better bet than Los Algos as prices are comparable and your options for activities, places to stay and interesting things to see and do are much greater in the Tijuana/San Diego area.
They'd lose their license or even go to jail for attempting a root canal on you in the US without being properly trained and certified. Get a dentist who is certified for the work you need done. Board Certified Mexico Dentists Association dentists cost no more.
Beware of general dentists calling themselves "specialists' in Mexico. Or posting fake degrees from Harvard on their salon walls - especially certificates of "atendencia" at dental convention seminars in lieu of graduate specialist college degrees. -ed
Must have been an expensive dental treatment (and ride). -ed
