If you go abroad for dental care: -- Check with the appropriate government agency in the destination country about its national dentistry guidelines. -- Find out what recourse is available if something goes wrong. -- At the dental office, look for infection-control procedures, including instrument sterilization and use of protective gloves, mask and eyewear. -- A traveler's guide to dental care is available through the Organization for Safety and Asepsis Procedures at Source: American Dental Association. Why is dental cheaper in Mexico? - lower operating costs, dentists are not required have malpractice insurance, dentists are less advanced and use less expensive technology and infection control procedures. Dental treatment performed abroad although less expensive, also carries an increased number of associated complications and risks. Travel, Dental Care and Dental Tourism There is a growing phenomena called "Dental Tourism" in which people travel to a destination that offers less expensive dental care. The decision to visit Another Country for dental care should go beyond simply comparing prices or even evaluating the dentists' expertise. Countries differ in their standards for infection control and safety. The use of fresh gloves, sterile instruments and safe water are not standard practice in all countries. Without these precautions, patients could be infected with diseases such as hepatitis B. Before considering such trips, it is important to be prepared by using information such as that contained in OSAP's Traveler's Guide. Additional information may be obtained at, and Start with as much data as possible, in Nogales get it from the Nogales Doctors and Dentists Directory. There is a wealth of information on the doctors and dentists and then do your internet searches and ask for references that you can contact by phone or email. The more reputable doctors are happy to provide information about themselves and their practice. As in any country or local area, most people rely on several ways to 'check out' professionals. First, people ask friends and family who they consider 'good' professionals. You might ask how the professional talks to patients, the professionals temperament (easily angered?), and any office policies that might affect you. Second, people ask at reputable hospitals, especially teaching hospitals, because they know who has practiced the longest and who might be taking new patients. Hospitals also often run referral lines that specifically give names of professionals taking new cases. Third, whatever Licensing Body a country uses (in the USA, each State has a Licensing Board over each profession) maintains current licensing information, education background, and previous complaints. Patients can also call a particular professional and ask the Office Staff a few questions. "How long has Dr. X been in practice? Does the doctor specialize in certain conditions?" With the combined information from these sources, most patients can make some informed choice before making an appointment. However, nothing replaces a face-to-face meeting so you can see if a Doctor is a good fit, for YOU.
