Like medical tourism in general, dental care among travelers is thriving in Mexico–and with good reason. Mexico is a premier destination for healthcare and dental care in Latin America and the nation has been attracting many Americans with its excellent-quality care and affordable prices. Because many of Mexico’s dentists receive training in the United States and many U.S. dentists obtain training in Mexico, the level of care is typically considered comparable. If you are considering obtaining dental procedures across the border, you aren’t alone. Many travelers are flocking to Mexico to receive both routine and specialty procedures.

Types of Dental Care Available in Mexico

If dental treatment is available in the U.S., there is every likelihood that it is also available in Mexico. In fact, many of the border towns like Los Algodones have become specifically noted for their high-quality dental procedures that are on par with what Americans can expect to find at home. Travelers come to obtain routine cleanings to implants. In fact, major work and cosmetic dental treatments are extremely popular in Mexico where such procedures are far cheaper than in the U.S. The up side is that the quality of the dental care does not diminish simply because you have crossed the border.

How Cheap Is Dental Care in Mexico?

Generally speaking, dental care in Mexico costs a third of what you’d expect to pay in the U.S. That’s incredibly appealing to many people who live near the border. Traveling to a border town to receive high-quality dental care is cheaper than having the work done in the U.S. In fact, many people in northern sections of the U.S. find the idea of traveling to Mexico for dental care preferable as well. Many combine their dental care with a full-blown vacation–which is still often cheaper than what you’d pay for your dental work at home.

Paying for Dental Care in Mexico

U.S. cash works quite well for most of Mexico’s dentists, especially for those near the border who do a lot of business with Americans. Credit cards, too, are generally welcome, and some dentists may even accept a check. It’s a good idea to obtain all the information you need regarding dental care in advance. Find out about the costs of treatments you need so you know how much cash you’ll need up front.

Choosing a Dental Care Provider and Appointments

Just like in the U.S., you will want to find do some research about choosing a dentist. You may have friends or a family who can recommend a great Mexican dentist. Again, some border towns are well known for their high concentrations of dentists. You should have little problem finding several that have excellent reputations. Before traveling to Mexico for dental care, be sure to set up an appointment, especially if you require an extensive procedure. On the other hand, you might be able to obtain teeth cleaning with no appointment at a wide variety of dental offices.

Many Americans are delighted at the quality care they receive from Mexican dentists. Because of their lower operating costs, Mexican dentists are able to charge far less than dentists in the U.S. If you are tired of paying exorbitant sums for dental care, consider checking the hot dental scene in Mexico.  Don’t dread your next Dentist appointment, book a hotel and enjoy the trip!
