You get what you pay for.


I had dental implants put in my whole mouth. My DDS, Dr. West, here in Tucson is one of the best in AZ, I did my research. I've never had a minutes worth of trouble.


Just remember my opening statement!!!

True. However I have observed the dentists in Algondones driving Toyota Tercells. No Mercedes, Audis, Porches, or Lambos. You are also not paying for insurance as I doubt you will ever be able to successfully sue a Mexican dentist.

My experience is if you have a problem and go back to the dentist they will fix it promptly for no charge.

There are thousands who have had very successful dental work in the Mexican border towns.


If you've never done so, then you shouldn't comment on how terrible it is.

How do you know there's thousands, you've never been.....I'm just reading and asking....

I didn't have to go, I have 3 friends that did. I have ears and eyes to listen and see what they've gone thru. That was deterrent enough for me. I'm not broke, I'm a Veteran, and I still paid for my own $12,000 dental procedure myself. I had to do a second on my house, but I did it my self. For every thousand done, how many have had issues? That's my question. Even if they are "batting" 800, I'm not going to take that chance on my health. If y'all decide to do it, live with it, and don't complain, you were warned.

I have no stats. Only me and many friends that had great care in Algodones, and all of us had horrid care repeatedly in the US: failed root canals, poorly fitting or broken bridges, infected crowns, on and on. Many repeat visits.
To heck with stats! WE went to OUR dentist in MX. WE had superior care from US educated dentists and technicians. WE saved 10s of thousands in the process. OUR dentist has a waiting list. OTHER dentists in MX have hawkers on the street and empty waiting rooms.
WE will return over the years. We needed no warning.
You have been informed.
Choose wisely, my friends!

What happened with your friends, and which dentist did they go to?

Huh? Dental work was done at Progresso, Naco, Nogales and Algodonas. No problems with any of them.

The OP and I have had our dental work done. This tread is moot.
But the OP and I did list 2 reputable dentists on this thread.
Cheers!

I should probably apologize, because I think my acquaintances (can't really call them friends) are just plain dumb. They still have problems 15 years after going to have their dental work done. So....

After being in the military, and serving in many different countries, I have a little true fear of this kind of thing. And that's why I would never go to another country for anything medical. Well, short of a true emergency.....

It seems to me people that say don't go haven't been,
but have second hand information wouldn't that be called
hearsay in court.

"Hearsay evidence is "an out-of-court statement introduced to prove the truth of the matter asserted therein." In court hearsay evidence is inadmissible."


So the people that have actually been to Mexico for dental work say go do it
they'd do it again. Some have did this for years!

I wouldn't hesitate to go to medical tourism if I had substantial work needed. I would carefully research the patients' ratings of the clinic, however.

I would prefer to stick to procedures like fillings, cleanings, bridges, dentures, etc. at a budget dental clinic.

I wouldn't want to do any dental implants, as patients need to stay in the vicinity of their dental surgeon after such procedures for quite sometime. Implants often need medical followup.
