10 YEARS EXPERIENCE , THOUSANDS OF CASES - WE HAVE THE KNOW HOW
ARRANGING YOUR DENTAL WORK IN MEXICO
It can seem a complicated process looking for a dentist in Cancun Mexico, especially when you want to know they are Experienced, qualified, capable and will offer you the best materials, equipment and results.
It may even seem impossible to be able to travel to Cancun Mexico confident that your dentistry will be in the very best Specialist hands with Professionals and have all your questions answered, know the costs you will be paying and what will take place on each appointment as well as the time you would be in the clinic.

You certainly do not want to arrive to a clinic that is not up to the standards you expect, or to be attended by unknown specialists or less experienced dentists and even more so be presented with treatment plans that are unexpected or have additional costs added raising your total more than you can or want to pay.
Prior to to traveling to Cancun for dentistry we suggest that you visit your local dental provider to have a thorough clinical evaluation and necessary imaging taken.
This allows you to have a understanding of what you are in need of and what your current Oral condition is and if on being presented with differing treatment presentations you will know to ask questions and the reasoning behind them.
For Dental Implant treatments a 3D Tomogoraphy of CBDT / CT Scan is the very best tool to allow the specialists to provide accurate surgical recommendations and if any additional treatments would be needed like Bone Grafts, Sinus elevations Extractions and so on (All these can mean additional trips, and most times increased costs) and being able to provide these case notes prior to deciding on which Cancun dental clinic and specialist you want to perform these will limit any unnecessary shocks and allow you to better budget.
If you do not have any information regarding your dental case this severely limits what information you will be given including costs, timelines and if any return visits would be needed.
We will always try our hardest to provide you with advice and estimations with the guidance of our Cancun Dental teams but the more details you have about your dental needs the better for all.
