Dental tourism in Mexico is expanding rapidly. Getting your teeth fixed at MTC’s clinics here comes with many advantages.
Some of these are affordable dental treatment and high-quality services. Proximity to the United States and Canada is another advantage.
There are many reasons why US and Canadian citizens are looking across the border for dental treatment. The following the factors contribute to the rise of dental tourism:
|Cost||High||Low. Save 50-70% off US prices|
|Treatment Standards||Top-quality||Internationally accredited|
|Accessibility||Long waiting time||No waiting time|
Another reason is that many U.S. citizens do not have dental insurance. The best dentists south of the border offer the lowest prices. This is why Americans and Canadians are seeking dental care here.
Dental procedures such as all-on-4 dental implants may cost you around $20,000 in the U.S. The same cost between $8,950-12,475 at an MTC clinic in Mexico.
Similarly, a full denture, acrylic teeth (upper or lower) may cost $2000 in the U.S. It costs between $250-965 at an MTC clinic in the Latin American country.
