Canadian Snowbirds "Flocking" to Cancun, Mexico for Dentistry
The Canadian Snowbird (escapus wintersnowus) is well known for its annual migration to warmer climes. As the bitter cold sets in, the snowbird pack its bag, buys flights, and relocates to another life, typically where a beach is never far away. ( *The Great Canadian Bucket List)
Mexico has long been a favorite choice of the Canadian Snowbirds, With locations such as Puerta Vallarta, Mazatlan, Oaxaca and Guadalajara catering to the needs of the many Canadians looking to escape to warmer climates. Further South to the Yucatan Peninsular the booming Resort towns of Cancun and Playa Del Carmen are seeing a considerable increase of Canadians seeking a second home which offers all of the postcard paradise images.
With this migration of Canadians who stay for extended periods of time, there is a new extra incentive to make the most of their visits to their second homes in Cancun which are getting their dental work done while here and saving on the cost of Dental treatments.
With Canadian dental prices even exceeding those of their American neighbors many Canadians are also taking the time and effort to research their options for getting their much needed and often expensive Dental treatments performed while they relax south of the Border way south - in Mexico.
Not only has the Riviera Maya from Cancun down past Tulum able to offer all the amenities to even the most demanding traveller, it has a very strange yet warming familiarity that Canadians instantly fall in love with.
What initially was considered a gamble that only the desperate or the brave took, Mexican Dental Tourism has become an unstoppable force for good (when handled by professionals) with word of mouth stories from family and friends singing the praises of their experiences.
Dental Vacations and Dental Tourism Mexico now counts Canadians as the new majority (catching up with Americans) who are actively seeking High Quality yet Cost effective dental treatments.

Dental Tourists Personal account of dentistry in Cancun
Two Canadians who visited such a Dental clinic in Cancun - Commented on how much more accessible and affordable their Dental Implant treatments were:
"I spent a lot of time in my search for a dentist to do my procedure. I'm from Canada and I spent thousands on consultations only to be quoted a price that I would have never been able to afford, I was told that these were fixed costs due to the implants manufacturers has a set price for the Implants. I was lucky enough to be critical thinker and not stop my search, and one day I found at dental clinic in Cancun that specialized in Implant dentistry, even though I was sceptical , I decided to go down and see what the facility and their professionals had to offer, I was greeted warmly and kindness at the front desk, and what I found out, as first impression is that kindness would be what would seem to be a company mode. The procedure was the next day and very extensive 5 teeth removed, 7 implants put in, I found this to be almost painless, my Doctor was a very gifted man. I wish I had more words to describe how great this has all been for me. its one of the best decisions I have ever made." Cassey Y, Calgary, Canada
Another Canadian Snowbird turned Dental Tourist commented the following
"One day on the golf course in Canada I was part of a conversation with this topic. A friend had been treated in Mexico, and was more than pleased. Some research on my wife's part and we are here in Cancun happy and the overall cost was less than 50% of what we were quoted in Canada. Professional, courteous, and for the two of us affordable." Tom , Vermont Canada
