In the recent years, the cost of dental work has escalated in the US and quite a few Americans cannot pay for it. The Federal Reserve’s report on the Well-Being of U.S. Households states that nearly 25% of the individuals could not afford to visit the dentist due to the costs involved1.
For such individuals, dental care in Mexico becomes a viable and an attractive option. If you are wondering how much dental work south of the border is, it is just about a fraction of the US prices.

What are My Travel Options?

What Explains the Lower Prices?
· Low Operating Costs: The cost of living in Mexico is much low as compared to the US. Thus, the cost of real estate, dental equipment, and labor is also less.
· No Malpractice Insurance: There is no mandatory malpractice insurance here, unlike in the United States.
· No Student Debt: Mexico dentists graduate with low student debt as the Government subsidizes their dental education, whereas, this is not the case in the US. They graduate with student education loan and thus charge their clients with more money.
Do You Accept Cash?
Yes, we do. We also accept major credit and debit cards, personal, traveler’s and cashier’s checks, and wire transfers.
How can I Reach Mexico?
Flights to all major Mexican airports are available on a daily basis from the US and Canada. Flights are available from Miami, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver (Canada) and Toronto (Canada).
