Traveling the world to find the best Cancun dentist

Watch out for the crocs when you are looking for Cancun dentists!

Cancun dentists are working hard & long to put Cancun, Mexico on the map for affordable, high quality dental care.  Cancun dental clinics are focused on delivering the highest quality care to both local and international patients from the United States and Canada.  Little did I know that I would have to risk a crocodile attack to see first-hand the quality of dental care in Cancun!

The first Cancun dental clinic I had to pleasure to visit was Sunset Dental Cancun.  Sunset Dental Cancun is located at the heart of the hotel zone in Cancun:  a couple minutes drive from all the major hotels.  I had the chance to visit this ultra modern and architecturally beautiful Cancun dental clinic for two hours and came away absolutely amazed.  Sunset Dental Cancun blows away any stereotypes Americans and Canadians have of dental clinics in Mexico!  The owners of Sunset Dental, Alaine & Marisela, resonate with their passion for quality dental materials, techniques and customer service for their patients.  I was lucky enough to join them both for dinner and we talked into the wee hours of the night about their commitment to elevating the perception of dental care in Mexico. Alaine & Marisela see themselves as ambassadors for Mexican dentistry with every American and Canadian snowbird/tourist/expat they treat.

I headed minutes down the road in Cancun’s hotel zone to visit Dental Departure’s top clinic Ocean Dental – Cancun.  I was immediately greeted by owner & head dentist Dra. Irma Gavaldon.  Little did I know that Dra. Irma is a fellow Canadian like myself who went to school at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta Canada.  Dra. Irma trained at the University of Michigan and decided that she wanted to return back to Mexico to establish herself as a Cancun’s top dentist.  Ocean Dental – Cancun  is a modern dental clinic that would not be out-of-place in any of the top dental clinics in Canada.  When I was there Ocean Dental was in the midst of creating a dental lab  just down the road from their clinic.  They have reinvested their profits & energy into elevating the quality of their dental materials and decreasing the lab-turn around time to 24 hours (for dental crowns & bridges).  Dra. Irma Gavaldon personifies what the best  Cancun dentists have to offer:  comprehensive dental education, a passion for quality , a commit to customer service and a drive for continuous improvement.

In downtown Cancun lies our latest addition to the Dental Departures network:   Inter-Dental.  Inter-Dental is a world class dental facility with 8 dental chairs specializing in both adult and children’s dental care.  Dr. Roberto Camarena and his wife have built a relaxing environment both inside and outside their dental clinic.  As you arrive at Inter-Dental you are struck by the lush trees that surround the building and the playground that is set-up for children to work off their anxiety about visiting this Cancun dentist.  When you sit in anyone of their dental chairs you are impressed by their new & modern dental equipment and the views of their garden are absolutely beautiful. I feel proud to recommend Inter-Dental to anyone I come across when they ask me who I would recommend for dental care in Cancun.

I find it absolutely fascinating that I have now visited Mexico dentists in the northern border cities, the west coast & now the east coast of Mexico and I find  dentists & dental clinics committed to quality dental care.  There is no one Mexico city that I’ve visited that has a monopoly on quality dental facilities or dental care.  Nor is there one Mexican city which has a monopoly on poor quality dental care:  there are bad dentists in Mexico just as their are bad dentists in Seattle, Vancouver, Chicago, Toronto or New York.

Cancun dentists are like dentists all over Mexico that I have met with personally:  Cancun dentists are committed to obliterating the low quality dental care stigma.  With every new smile Cancun dentists bring to American and Canadian patients, brings another advocate to prove that Mexican dentists are just as good as dentists in Canada or the United States.

A review of Ocean Dental from Kevin, Philadelphia, USA:-

‘Words escape me. Simply put, I spent 7 days in Cancun and my prime directive was to get my teeth repaired and updated. I found the clinic to be simple, clean and very current in their technology….A wonderful experience, and this coming from a man who has spent many, many hours in the chairs of various dentists.
