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 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. Yes you can, its very affordable. I know a lot of people that have received dentistry work in Mexico. But ask around and find a highly recommended dentist. Its very affordable and great quality. Make sure you do your research... If anyone does decide to go to Mexico for services, factor in trip cost. Depending on where you live, it very well may break even in cost.
