We started full-timing in June and plan to spend some time near Port Isabel & South Padre Island this winter. I need a crown replaced and we would like to have our teeth cleaned. I would appreciate any assistance on how to find a good reputable Dentist in Mexico near this area.
Do you need to make appointments and how do you pay?
Our local Dentist wants about $900.00 for the crown work and I'm wondering what that type of work costs in Mexico. We are new to this and are not aware of concerns crossing the border and doing things in Mexico.
Thank you, LIKENIT

You did not say where the local dentist is but 900.00 sounds like a lot.

We do not have insurance and so we 'Dr shop' for price and visit with locals for recomendations. We have found prices all over the board.

There are very good dentists in the U.S. Have never thought about going to Mexico for Dental work. Would like to hear of your experience.

I had a bunch of dental work done at the Baja Dental Clinic in Algodones, Mexico last winter and I am very happy with both the quality of the work and the price.
I had an extraction, 3 crowns, a partial permanent bridge and a couple fillings done for $995.
I saved at least $3,000 down there. You can also get a haircut and a beard trim for $3 and a great margarita for $2. Majorbrand cigarettes are $17 per carton and you can also save big on prescriptions and over the counter medications as well as glasses and eye exams.

21 extractions and full set of dentures for $840.00 in Nogales last January. Completely happy with the results.
