Tips for Finding a Good Dentist Near the Arizona Border

Los Algodones is the dental capital of the world. This border town has more space devoted to dental clinics than any other place in the world.

There are some 350 dentists working within a few blocks of the city center.

Here are a few tips to find the dentist of your choice:

  • Choose a dental clinic close to your hometown so that it saves travel time and money. For example, Los Algodones is better for those in need of a dentist close to Yuma or Phoenix. It’s only 3 ½ hours from Phoenix and 15-20 minutes from downtown Yuma.
  • Choose your dental clinic on the basis of actual patient reviews. Spend some time researching for referrals from friends, family, and online reviews. There are many sites which provide customer feedback and reviews about a particular clinic.
  • Choose quality first, the price should be second. Although you want to save money, don’t base your whole decision on how cheap the treatment is. Make sure you are not sacrificing quality for a smaller bill.
  • The best dentist stands by the dental work they have done. Ask your dentist if they provide a guarantee for extensive dental procedures.
