No one wants to be on vacation and need a doctor or a dentist but things happen sometimes and it’s always good to be prepared when on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. Ex-pats who live here rave about the medical and dental care they receive.
Many people come to Mexico specifically to get dental work done. It’s much cheaper than the US or Canada; the clinics are state-of-the-art and just as professional as one would expect north of the border.
We go for teeth cleanings to a local dentist and pay the nominal fee of $500 pesos for what could cost us over $300 in the US. There is little waiting time to schedule an appointment and we have never sat in the clinic for more than ten minutes.
Puerto Vallarta is an excellent destination for those seeking everything from teeth cleaning to implants. Though some opt for an entire mouth full of brand new teeth, many visitors come for biannual visits and see a regular dentist in Puerto Vallarta, just as they would in their hometown.
There’s a lot of appeal in paying a tenth of the price for virtually the same product. Toss an airfare on top of that and you can still afford to stay in a very nice hotel and save money. If you do an online search from home, you will find companies who will arrange your trip, book your hotel and plan side tours.
Why is it so much cheaper to get dental work in Puerto Vallarta and other places in Mexico?
The Mexican government gladly subsidizes dentists’ education so they aren’t burdened by a student loan debt to start out their career. Some choose to live at home and pay back a loan with a year of free service. Dental clinics in Puerto Vallarta are usually simple environments with ordinary laminate counters, inexpensive art and practical flooring. North American cities have dental offices with inlaid floors, custom carpets, granite, marble, creative lighting and elaborate play areas for children. The décor in Mexico is plain and functional. You come for dental work, not interior design advice. Dentists in Puerto Vallarta ordinarily work on their own without an assistant and do teeth
cleaning. In the States a hygienist, who can make as much as $80 per hour, cleans your teeth and is assisted when doing your exam. Patient insurance figures into northern pricing structure, significantly raises prices to meet the market; Mexico doesn’t have dental insurance and malpractice insurance is non-existent.
Do your research before booking your appointment. If you have friends who’ve had Mexican dental work, ask to look in their mouths, inquire how happy they are with everything from cosmetics to bite. You can get everything from Zoom cleaning to implants in Mexico at a great savings with complete peace of mind.
Que cómo es es.
