highly skilled and experienced dental surgeons is also one of the
reasons for growth of dental tourism in Mexico.
Particularly popular are border towns, where the increase in dental tourism
to the country has also resulted in a marked increase in quality of service
provided. In fact, numerous US dentists have opened offices in border towns
in the country, drawn by low overhead costs and proximity to US towns.

Other dental procedures are also significanlty low-priced. The prohibitive
costs of dental procedures, coupled with the fact that many Americans do not
have dental insurance, has resulted in a surge of American dental tourists in this Latin American country. International tourists are finding the extremely low costs for dental
procedures extremely attractive.
Quality of care: Most of the dental clinics in Mexico use state of the
art technology and follow OSHA regulation for hygiene standards. Mexico Dental Association, the professional dental body of the country, is a regular member of the
World Dental Federation, ensuring there is a standard system of quality control
and assessment. Many dentists in Mexico are trained in US, UK and are highly experienced
in dentistry. Thus you need not to worry about quality of dental work as it matches
the US standards.
Proximity: Most border towns of Mexico are extremely popular with
dental tourists, because of their proximity to US and Canada. Also,
since dental patients save so much by getting their dental procedure done in
Mexico, even air travel costs will not put a heavy dent on your pocket.

dentists, aided by good technology a wide range of dental procedures are available
in Mexico. These include everything from veneers, orthodontic treatment, dental
implants, dental crowns & caps, dental bridges, dentures, full mouth restoration

your hectic life. Go relax at one of the numerous sandy beaches, or gaze in

Disadvantages of Dental tourism in Mexico
Despite the large number of international tourists visiting the country for
dental treatment, it still has its share of sub-standard establishments.
A particularly common occurrence in rural areas, it is always best to stick
to the cities and other popular tourist areas. Also, instances of gang related
violence have been known to happen in the country, and even though there is
no actual danger to tourists, it is always good to be careful, especially when
travelling at night. Testimonials by several patients who have had successful
dental treatments done are proof of the safety of the trip.
Overall, Mexico is safe for tourists, which is supported by the fact that it
is ranked eighth in the world, in terms of international tourist arrivals. Even
though Spanish is the language spoken by the majority of the population, the
impact of heavy international tourist arrivals has resulted in the development
of tourist infrastructure. Also all major dental clinics, particularly those
which cater to international patients, are staffed with English-speaking staff,
doing away with any communication barriers.
