Woodburn, OR (PRWEB) December 4, 2009
After being in business for more than 6 years, Mexican Dental Vacation is seeing their best year ever, and it seems to be because of the poor economy. Dental tourists are estimated to have exceeded the 600,000 mark in 2009, a 20% increase over 2008 numbers. Dental tourism continues to rise in the United States and Canada as the sinking economy puts pressure on American pocket books.
Founder Nick Konev explains the increase in new patients:
"The majority of people are coming here with several thousand dollars of dental work that they need done, either because it kept getting put off, or because they lost their job, and now can't complete the work that was being covered by their company's dental insurance plan. In either case, it couldn't be put off any longer, since their savings are dwindling, and dental problems never sleep, they just get worse, until they are corrected. People are finding that now is the time to finally take care of it, especially when the future is so uncertain."
"This was exactly why I founded Mexican Dental Vacation, since I would go to Mexico for dental work, and found it very difficult to get consistent, good dental work from the dentists that I used. Some of the work was great, some had to be redone when I got back home. I thought "There are other people going through the same thing, so why don't I build an English-speaking clinic that is run to US/Canadian standards, that produces excellent, consistent results, while saving people more than 50%?" And over 6 years ago, that is exactly what I did."
"We now have a long list of happy customers, from Alaska to Florida. When someone facing a treatment plan of $5000 or more finds us and discovers what we can do for them, they book an appointment immediately. It's a no-brainer. The bigger your bill, the more money we can save you. "
The primary benefit of dental tourism in Mexico is the cost of dental tourism. A dental crown averages about $1200, and dental tourism will save you at least 50% of this price. A complete dental implant costs $3800 in the US, and dental tourism can save you more than 60%.
A teeth in an hour procedure, sometimes called "all on 4", where 4 implants are seated either in the upper or lower arch, and a full arch prosthetic is placed, all in about an hour, can cost $35,000 per arch in the US. Dental tourism can save you more than 60% of this price, bringing your price down to a very appealing $11,900 per arch. This is a great option for those who have all of their teeth missing in the upper or lower arch.
A second benefit that Americans are finding with Mexican Dental Vacation is that the dental work is done much faster. The work is done in larger blocks of time. A treatment plan that would have taken 6 months to a year to complete takes 1 to 2 weeks. Also, they are located in Mazatlan, a resort city, getting patients a much welcomed vacation at the same time, especially if it is cold and snowing up North.
Mexican Dental Vacation also provides a free cell phone for your use for the duration of your dental vacation, allowing you to call home, or to be reached by friends and family calling from the US and Canada.
In places like Mazatlan, tourism is a thriving industry, so the locals and the governments do all they can to make sure that tourists are kept safe, and treated well. It really is a safe and brilliant way to finally get that smile that you have always wanted.
