Canadians and dentistry in Cancun

Canadian Snowbirds "Flocking" to Cancun, Mexico for Dentistry

The Canadian Snowbird (escapus wintersnowus) is widely known for its annual migration to warmer destinations. As the frigid cold takes hold, the snowbird prepares its belongings, books flights, and embarks on a new adventure, usually where beautiful beaches abound.

Mexico has long been a favored choice for Canadian Snowbirds, with popular locations like Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan, Oaxaca, and Guadalajara catering to the needs of many Canadians seeking refuge from the chilly winters. Heading further south to the Yucatan Peninsula, booming resort towns such as Cancun and Playa Del Carmen have witnessed a significant surge in Canadians seeking a second home that offers a picturesque paradise.

With a growing number of Canadians spending extended periods in Mexico, there is an additional incentive to make the most of their visits by taking care of their dental needs while saving on costs. Canadian dental prices, which often surpass those in the neighboring United States, have prompted many Canadians to explore options for affordable dental treatments in Mexico while they relax in the warm Mexican climate.

The Riviera Maya, stretching from Cancun down to Tulum, not only offers a wide range of amenities to satisfy even the most discerning traveler but also exudes a peculiar yet comforting familiarity that captivates Canadians instantly.

What was once considered a risky endeavor taken only by the desperate or the courageous, Mexican Dental Tourism has now become an unstoppable force for good when handled by professionals. Stories shared by family and friends through word of mouth have sung praises of their experiences, and now Canadians have joined Americans as the majority seeking high-quality yet cost-effective dental treatments.

These dental tourists, as they are affectionately known, have transformed the medical landscape of Cancun and other major resort towns. With the positive support and assistance of local government authorities, agencies, hospitals, and clinics investing time and resources to reach out, inform, and provide services to those in need, Cancun has emerged as the capital of affordable and professional Mexican dental tourism.

Personal accounts from dental tourists in Cancun highlight the accessibility and affordability of dental implant treatments:

"I spent a considerable amount of time searching for a dentist to perform my procedure. Being from Canada, I spent thousands on consultations, only to receive quotes that were beyond my means. I was informed that these fixed costs were due to the set prices imposed by implant manufacturers. Luckily, I persisted in my search and eventually found a specialized dental clinic in Cancun that focused on implant dentistry. Although skeptical at first, I decided to visit the facility and meet the professionals. I was greeted warmly and sensed a genuine kindness permeating the entire company. The procedure took place the following day and involved the removal of five teeth and the insertion of seven implants. I found the process to be nearly painless, and my doctor displayed exceptional skill. Words cannot adequately describe how wonderful this experience has been for me. It is truly one of the best decisions I have ever made." - Cassey Y, Calgary, Canada

Another Canadian Snowbird turned dental tourist shared the following:

"While playing golf in Canada one day, the topic of dental treatments abroad came up in conversation. A friend spoke highly of their treatment in Mexico, which prompted my wife to conduct some research. Now, here we are in Cancun, delighted with the outcome, and the overall cost was less than 50% of what we were quoted in Canada. The professionals were professional, courteous, and most importantly, affordable for the two of us." - Tom, Vermont, Canada
