Mexico Dental Vacation Checklist
By The Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association.
The Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association makes these recommendations for people considering a Mexican dental vacation or dental holiday:
1. If you want a good price quote before heading south to visit a dentist in Mexico - email a copy of your dentist's treatment plan, x-rays or panoramic (if available) to the dentist in Mexico.
The more information the Mexican dentist has, the more accurate quote he can make. Photos of your teeth are almost as good as a clinical analysis. If none of the above are possible - don't worry, x-rays (except panoramic x-rays) are gratis at most of our member clinics. Panoramics for dental implants etc. are only $60us in Mexico.
2. Try to know how many crowns, bridges, dental implants etc. you require and detail it all in the Mexico dental clinic's Contact Form. Note any health issues the dentist should be made aware of.
3. Be sure to visit the Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association site to find a certified dentist in Mexico qualified to do the type of procedure(s) you are seeking. Unless you are having a routine cleaning, drilling or filling - you will be assured of the best results from a certified dentist rather than a less-skilled general dentist in Mexico.
4. Get a free estimate and dental travel advice from a Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association staff member. BCMD Assn. Member dentists rely on the staff to quote foreign patients in English and schedule appointments. Most accept major credit cards, dollars or pesos.
5. Note your proposed travel dates with BCMD to be sure the dentist can accommodate you. Mexican dentists love vacations too – especially at year end and often for 2-3 weeks. The BCMD staff will check dentist calendars, forward to you resumes, estimates, and set your appointments for you without cost.
6. Obtain a US passport – it usually takes 3 days to 4 weeks depending on the level of service you pay for. You can get the forms online or pick them up at any US post office.
7. Mexican visas are for 6 months and are given out by the flight attendants in flight. If driving, always be sure to purchase short-term Mexican auto insurance online or at the border.
8. BCMD Assn. members will provide local ground transportation for clinic appointments and some even assist with border crossings.
9. If planning a dental vacation to a Cabo, Cancun, Tijuana/San Diego or a Puerto Vallarta dental clinic - be sure to bring sun bloc, hat and sunglasses.
10. Let a Board Certified Mexico Dentist Patient Adviser take the uncertainty and guesswork out of selecting the right dentist for your specific requirements. You will be assured that you will be getting the right dentist fully accredited and certified for the procedures that you need.
