My first dental visit to an Algodones Dentist in Mexico

Last week I had a chance to make the trip down south and have my teeth cleaned an an Algodones dentist in Mexico.  It was a fantastic experience and I’m happy to say that I can now vouch for the quality of our clinics in Los Algodones.

My first stop was at Evolution Dental Implant Center.  This small, 2 chair clinic specializes in dental implants and offers the most competitive price in all of Los Alogodones.  I met Dr. Eduardo “Nick” Escandon and took a few photos of the clinic.  His mother does the reception and was extremely kind.  The doctor personally works on each of his patients, so there this is a very one-on-one, personal experience.  He does outstanding work and at about $1000 an implant, it is an unbelievable bargain.  Implants here in the states run roughly $4000!  This would be nearly impossible to afford in the US if there were several implants needed.  At Dr. Eduardo’s prices, even an entire mouthful of implants can realistically be achieved.

Next up I visited Clinica Rubio and met with the staff and the Dr. Rubio himself.  This clinic is large, modern and very busy.  The doctor was really excited about acquiring new equipment with 3D CAD-CAM technology that allows for the production of excellent quality e.Max and zirconia crowns in one day!  They were really pumped about expanding the business and looking forward to a great partnership with Dental Departures.

My final destination was Sani Dental; where I had my check up and cleaning.  The biggest surprise for me was when I was seated, the doctor used a scope camera and flat panel monitor while examining my teeth.  During the exam I was able to watch as he went tooth to tooth, checking for cavities, cracks, gum problems, etc.  It turned out that a previous root canal had some build up and needed a filling.  This is the first time in my life that I was shown exactly what was in my mouth and what they were going to do about it.  It was reassuring and just plain cool to witness!

There were so many clinics in Los Algodones that it was a bit overwhelming.  I’m hoping that Dental Departures will have the opportunity to help those looking for dental treatment in Mexico because it can be very frustrating choosing from over 300 clinics in Los Algodones alone!  I enjoyed my stay.  The hospitality was great, the quality of the dentists were top notch, the weather was warm, there’s shopping to be had and the food was really fantastic!
