MEXICO DENTIST EXPERIENCE
I just got home from taking my dad to Mexico for extensive dental work. We were referred to the Alamo Dental Clinic by friends. All of my original skepticism about taking him to have third world dentistry done was completely swept away. It could not have been a better experience.
This photo is Dad with his prosthodontist specialist, Dr. Monica Camacho, and her assistant Berenice. After a week of dental work including multiple root canals, crowns, fillings, and extractions, he gives two thumbs up, five stars, and nothing but the highest recommendation to the clinic and doctors. I was just there as support and transportation, not as a patient, but from my observations and conversations with other patients, I concur. The cost was a fraction of what it would have cost him at home, including both of our travel expenses. He had almost no pain or discomfort, even after the extractions.
What we both felt from the doctors here was that they are very concerned about patient comfort, accurately identifying the dental work that needs to be done, and completing it in a correct and skillful manner. The doctors are all highly educated and professional specialists.
We stayed in Yuma, AZ, and drove the 10 minutes each day to the border crossing into Los Algodones, where we parked in a secure lot and walked across the border then about 2 blocks to the clinic. We felt completely safe. There were many street vendors as one would expect in Mexico, but they were friendly and good-natured, not overly pushy.
Dad says it's the best dental experience he's ever had, and he'd rather take a beating than go to the dentist!
