Everyone is aware that dental care is expensive. Whether you have dental insurance or not, dental care adds up quickly, especially in the United States. But, what if there was an option that could save you 50 to 70 percent? You’d be interested, right? Of course you would! Here, at Dental Image, we want our patients to be well-informed.
What we’re really talking about here is for the big ticket procedures. But is cost the only factor to consider? No, there are several reasons why dental care in Mexico is better compared to the United States.
Reason Number 1 Efficiency
Many of the dental offices in Mexico cater to dental tourism. What does that mean? For you, the patient, it means that they have worked to develop a system so that you can go to Mexico and get all of your dental work done quickly. They understand you can’t make several trips back and forth like you would with a dentist back home.
Dental offices in Mexico have created practices that house different specialties together and have a lab either in house or very nearby. You can get regular dental work, root canals, implants, and much more all under the same roof.
This system enables you to receive the initial consultation and get work done all in one day. Granted, the larger the procedure, the longer it takes and can take several days on very significant procedures.
Reason Number 2 Guaranteed Work
If you see a dentist in the United States and have a bridge put in that fails 6 months down the road, does your dentist guarantee that work? Or are you responsible for paying to have another bridge put in? Some dentists may guarantee their work in the U.S., but it isn’t common practice. In Mexico, it is.
Most dentists in Mexico have 1 to 3 year guarantees while some even go up to 5 years. FIVE years!
Reason Number 3 Time
As they say, time is money. And one of the number one things we all complain about it not having enough of either.
The dentists in Mexico work 5, even 6 days a week and they work all day. Many dentists in the U.S. work 3 to 4 days making it very difficult to get in and get results quickly.
Reason Number 4 Patient Care
Mexico dentists make patient care priority number 1. They schedule consultation appointments for 45 minutes to 1 hour so you have plenty of time to ask questions and get to know your dentist.
Additionally, they want to make things easy for their patients so obtaining pricing information is very easy. Many of the prices are available online and if they aren’t or you have additional questions, English speaking staff are always happy to answer your questions.
Reason Number 5 Vacation
It’s called dental tourism, so don’t forget about the tourism part! Even if you’re having a lot of work done, which can get painful, take some time to enjoy the beach. Allow the sound of the water and open air to help take some of the stress and pain out of the dental work.
Reason Number 6 Cost
So yes, it is less convenient to take a trip down to Mexico rather than a few minutes down the road. However, if you’re needing extensive work, or would simply rather take the extra money to stay somewhere nice on the beach, Dental Image in Mexico might just be the solution for you.
