The orthodontists and other medical staff that I talked to over there had training in the United States. We are all very pleased with the quality of dentistry in Mexico, especially because of the low cost of cosmetic dentistry in Mexico. The cost of dental implants in Mexico was just a fraction of that in the US. The entire cost of Andy's mouth restoration was not more than $1,500.
Burbank, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
Andy Gobienko was eating a burger the day before his parents left for his dad's knee surgery in Mexico, when Andy's tooth broke loose. Andy's mom Kathy Gobienko then suggested that he come with them so that he could have his dental work done in the same Mexico trip.
Medical Tourism Corporation quickly arranged Andy's dental vacation in Mexico though it was a last-minute program. Andy, 18, says, "I had my doubts about going to a border dental clinic in Mexico. Not that Tijuana is a dirty place or any such thing, but I was wondering why I should go for dental care to Mexico when I could have got it done here in the States."
"But when I reached there, I saw that it was the cleanest hospital that I had ever seen. It was so hi-tech and modernized. I also felt welcome and cared for over there. The people were very nice and they spoke good English. The proportion of US patients was also higher than Latino patients. And there were people from other countries, too, like from Germany."
"I had eight cavities, so I had to go for eight fillings. And the tooth that chipped off -- that was replaced by a crown teeth. I had to go for root canal and a post put in and a crown put on top of that. My Tijuana, Mexico dentist did all this in one day!"
James Gobienko, Andy's dad, chips in, "The orthodontists and other medical staff that I talked to over there had training in the United States. We are all very pleased with the quality of dentistry in Mexico, especially because of the low cost of cosmetic dentistry in Mexico. The cost of dental implants in Mexico was just a fraction of that in the US. The entire cost of Andy's mouth restoration was not more than $1,500."
"And anyone who knows anything about the cost of medical care in the US knows that it is one heck of a saving. It is, in fact, unbelievable! Because, even if anyone has insurance, you'll still have to pay some of the costs of the dentistry in the USA, and that would still be at least two times that of Mexico costs," Kathy says.
Andy adds, "The coolest thing was that my eight fillings, root canal and dental crown were all done in one day. Here in the States, I'd have to have at least four appointments for that. Sure, I was in the chair for 4-5 hours that day, but the important thing is that it all got done. For someone who has a business schedule, it can be very difficult to go back and forth so many times.
"Yes, the first day it hurt really bad. My mouth was so sore. The next day it did hurt, but not anything like I thought it would. The pain was hardly there. I don't know what he did, but my Mexico dentist was simply wonderful and I would recommend cosmetic dentistry in Mexico to anyone. And Medical Tourism Corporation arranged the entire Mexico medical trip so well though they had to it all in such a hurry," Andy smiles.
Medical Tourism Corporation can arrange all sorts of dental work, same day dental implants (Immediate load implants), cheap teeth veneers, dentures etc. in Tijuana, Monterrey, and Ciudad Juarez in Mexico. Apart from Mexico, the other popular dental tourism center part of Medical Tourism Corporation network for dental care is Costa Rica, India and El Salvador.
