Dental tourism in Mexico is a thriving industry that sees thousands of foreign citizens each year, mostly from the US and Canada. They’re coming to take advantage of low prices in Mexico, because they can’t afford it back home.
A large number of American citizens are currently without dental insurance. The U.S. National Center for Health Statistics reports that 26% of the 172 million Americans with private health insurance do not have dental insurance. This is one of the main factors driving North Americans to take dental vacations in Mexico. It’s simply much more affordable south of the border.
Why go to Mexico on a Dental Holiday?
The low cost of a dental holiday in Mexico is its biggest advantage. Even after factoring in expenses like airfare, hotel, food and shopping, it’s possible to save up to 60% compared to what you would pay in your local dentist’s office. We offer many dental holiday packages in Mexico that enable you to save even more.
But you won’t have to sacrifice quality to get such a great deal. In fact, many of our network dentists in Mexico have international experience and credentials. They are accustomed to giving foreign patients the same quality of care that they have come to expect from dentists in the North America.
Service at dental clinics in Mexico is often much faster than back home, as well. Many of our network dental clinics boast in-house laboratories for the fabrication of crowns, dentures and other prostheses, which drastically cuts down wait times, as patients don’t have to wait for a lab across town to do the work.
Besides, getting dental implants in Mexico does not take anywhere near as long as it does in the U.S. and Canada, and if you book your appointment well in advance, you can expect to land on the dentist’s chair as soon as you arrive in Mexico.
Dental Hotspots in Mexico
There are many excellent destination options to choose from when planning a Mexican dental vacation. You can choose something quick and easy, if you don’t have much time, or go to a world-class tourist destination and take a well-deserved vacation.
- If you want the quick and easy option, you should consider taking a dental tour to Los Algodones. It’s right across the border from Yuma, Arizona, which makes it possible to save money by keeping all your flights domestic and crossing the border on land. Los Algodones is a major dental tourism hub in Mexico. It is full of excellent dental clinics, as well as cheap pharmacies, in case you need to get cheap medications, as well.
- A dental trip to Tijuana offers the same convenience, especially for residents of California. Dental tourism is also very popular here, as well. Many clinics here offer shuttle service from the airport in San Diego, as well as to and from the hotel and other tourist spots around Tijuana.
- If, however, you want the whole kit and caboodle – snazzy new teeth and an unforgettable vacation – we recommend you take a dental vacation in Cancun. This is one of the premier tourist destinations on the Mayan Riviera. Cancun boasts long stretches of white sand beaches and azure Caribbean waves and almost year-round sunshine. It’s full of fun activities to get you having fun outside the dental clinic.
So, if you’re thinking of traveling to Mexico for teeth implants, dentures, whitening, or a number of other procedures, you have some options. And if you plan wisely and make the right choices for your dental holiday in Mexico, you will not have to compromise the care and quality.
