A Cancun Dentist for Dental Tourism
Many more people these days are coming to Mexico to get dental work done. Cancun can be a good place to fly into and also see a dentist. One popular dentist office that is set up for dental tourism is the Cancun Dental Specialists. They have been open since 2014 and serving patient’s dental needs. We recently toured their facilities to see what they offered and what the office was like.
One of the first things you will notice about this dentist is just how organized it is to handle guests coming from out of the country. Bilingual staff greets people, there are many consultation rooms, a laboratory on the premise and dozens of dentist and assistants to attend to patients. Everything is organized to accommodate people, so they can arrive, have dental work done, and do so in the short time they are in Mexico.
Below are photos we took on our tour of the facilities. As you can see, it is modern, clean and efficient.
What is the process of setting up an appointment?
- The first step is by contacting them. The receptionist will ask what procedures you are looking to get done, ask relevant questions and go over all the details.
- Once you have decided to visit this dentist, they can arrange your free airport pickup and also help you with information on where to stay.
- When you have your first appointment at the dentist, they can arrange transportation to and from your appointments for you. This makes everything easy for you.
- For your first appointment, the receptionist will ask you to register your personal information as well as any medical and dental history. They will also take a photo for the records.
- A 3D CBCT scan taken. This type of x-ray is important in seeing the structure of your mouth and density of the bones. This process takes about 5 minutes to complete.
- After the scan is done and you have registered, you will go in for a consultation. This is where you talk about the dental work that you want to get done and what is your budget. A full consultation can take from anywhere between 2 and 4 hours. Consultation fees are waived if you decide to move forward with any dental treatment in the facility.
