Everyone is going through tough times economically right now.
We are all looking for ways to cut back. When it comes to dental care, we often put things off, but in reality, eventually, things need to be taken care of. A lot of people have lost their dental insurance or never had any.
If you need dental work done and have gone to get a checkup anywhere in the USA, you probably were shocked at the prices they quoted. That is the main reason people go to a dentist in Mexico for dental care, they are hunting for a bargain. Here are 11 things you should know about getting dental work in TJ.
11. The lower cost does not equate to lower quality
In the U.S. we’re raised to believe that higher costs equal higher quality. This is not the case with dental care in Mexico. A number of factors contribute to the price difference like a lower cost of living, rent, and salaries.
10. They have water filtration systems
If you’re worried about getting sick from drinking water in Mexico, you will be happy to know that water is filtered through systems to keep it safe and potable.
9. Safe transportation
Don’t worry about transport, in Tijuana you can find affordable and safe transport services from the border to many hotels and resorts. You’ll be picked up at your most convenient location with a friendly driver that talks English too.
8. You can get your meds there too
If your dentist prescribes pain meds or other prescriptions, you can visit a Mexican pharmacy and pick up your meds at a reduced rate before you head home.
7. Excellent shopping opportunities
Whether you are in the market for custom cowboy boots, hand-woven blankets, or tailored clothing, Mexico’s stores and markets will not leave you disappointed. They sell products made by artisans from the city of Tijuana.
After all, many San Diego residents have a hard time believing that a trip to Mexico is safe let alone that it could be fun.
6. You can bring a friend to your dental appointment
If you’re nervous about traveling abroad for dental care, you can bring moral support. They’ll just have to wait in the waiting room.
5. Americans have been traveling to Mexico for dental work for over 20 years.
4. They use the same hygienic/sterilization techniques as American dentists
3. Clinics are clean and professional
Otherwise, why would Americans keep going to Mexico, right?
2. They use high-tech equipment (X-rays, 3D imaging, etc.)
