Dental care abroad
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 www.osap.org.

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 www.ada.org, www.iamat.org and www.adse.co.uk.
'My wife has experienced in our opinion, the worst dentist ever and he is in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico... His name is Dr. Victor M. Silva. He put in an implant in her upper jaw and two days later she had a very bad infection. Upon Dr. Silva looking at it, he just stated that it was too small of an implant and grabed it with his finger and just pulled it out ... He did not even offer her any anti-biotics until I insisted on them... His practice is a one room office/examining room that is not sanitary and usually he is there by himself without an assistant.
After removing the implant, he told her to come back in two months and he would put in another one that was longer. When my wife returned, to his office, he then told her that there was not enough bone and that she should come back in one year, At this point (4 trips later from Tucson to Nogales)we did not want to deal with him anymore and asked for our money back, he straight out refused to refund the money that we had given him as a down payment for the service.
I would strongly suggest that this dentist be avoided at all if looking for a good dentist in Nogales. REMEMBER, his name is Dr. Victor M. Silva. He will take your money and give you the run around.
Not necessarily. Maybe he didn't want to give you dentures if he knew they wouldn't fit right or be supported without implants. Have you had dentures before? Did you go in to his office and complain about how dentures never fit you? Implants may be the best solution and he may not want to give you a set of dentures that he knows you will be unhappy with.
