US Dentist Sends Patients to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta

Dr. Nelson Henry DDS

Dr. Nelson Henry believes, like you, that dentistry in the USA is way too expensive - so he sends patients to Cabo, Cancun, Tijuana and Puerto Vallarta dentists where you will be expertly treated by certified dentists - not general dentists.

Mexico dental vacations to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta are a good way to solve America's dental care crises for many patients, thought Dr. Nelson Henry DDS of Maine after vacationing in Cabo San Lucas last season.

The Maine dental clinic owner and former ships dentist for Carnival Cruise Lines spent time meeting with Cabo dentists, touring dental clinics and labs during his holiday.

The ADA has always pushed the patient's fear buttons when it comes to going off shore for dental work, so many patients don't consider dental travel as a smile saving option when they should.

After more research, the dentist deduced the risk factor in going abroad for dentistry is virtually eliminated when the patient uses board certified specialist dentists instead of less-trained general dentists. A certified dentist in Mexico costs the same as a less-trained general dentist in Mexico – so why not go for the best?

General dentists in Mexico (and the USA) lack the additional years of dental specialist college training necessary for complicated treatments such as root canals, crowns, cosmetic dentistry, dental makeovers, dental implants and oral surgeries. Which are exactly what most dental tourists are seeking when they take a dental vacation.

General dentists in Mexico can legally attempt specialist dentistry without advanced certifications. In the USA, where consumer protection laws are more stringent - it's illegal for a general dentist to perform advanced dentistry. Whenever you hear of a dental horror story - it is often because a general dentist was attempting advanced dental procedures by learning at the patient's expense, noted the dentist.

To help more patients afford dentistry and to grow his business, Dr. Nelson expanded virtually by purchasing AboutMexicanDentists.com - the popular Cabo dental tourism website.

Now he can advise patients on how to take a dental vacation, saving them thousands of dollars on large treatments and having board certified dentists do the work. Not general dentists.

How much can one save by seeing a Puerto Vallarta or Cabo dentist?
Crowns cost $800 - $3,000usd in the USA, depending on whether you are visiting a small-town clinic or a fancy one in an upscale part of town, according to the American Dental Association.

The cost for the same crown runs about $450 with a dentist in Mexico. If you are looking at a complete dental makeover of 27 teeth in the USA you might spend $50-100,000usd versus $15,000 - $25,000 with a Cabo dentist. "You could buy a Mercedes with the difference," he says with a smile. Ok - maybe a good used one.

AboutMexicanDentists.com offers free online consultations AND Toll-Free phone calls from the USA and Canada for consultations with Dr Nelson, or his staff, when he's busy with patients.

The doctor notes: "I just hope to help more patients across the country discover they can solve their dental health care crisis by taking a Mexican dental vacation."

"I realize a patient from Texas or Washington State is never going to visit my clinic in Maine – but many who cannot afford the larger treatments like cosmetic dental makeovers, dental implants, multiple crowns etc. can still have their dentistry in Cabo or Puerto Vallarta if they have a week or two of vacation days available."
