Playa Smiles -The English speaking dentist in Playa Del Carmen

Playa Smiles is a dentist in Playa Del Carmen that many of our readers like going to. This also happens to be one of the English speaking dentist in Playa Del Carmen. Here you can have a wide range of dental services which are for both residents and tourists.

We stopped by to talk to one of the dentist, Dr. Ricardo Perez to ask some questions about their services.

Sample prices for dental work in Playa Del Carmen

One thing people wonder about is prices. What are some sample prices of services Playa Smiles offers? A teeth cleaning is $50 USD and a filling with the tooth color resin is $70 USD to give you an idea of prices. Playa Smiles also offers take home kits of teeth whitening for $150 USD.

How many dentist work at Playa Smiles?

There are seven dentist that work at Playa Smiles. All speak some English. All levels of English is spoken, from basic to advanced. Each dentist has a specialty field of dentistry (orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, root canals, pediatrics, periodontics, dental surgery, or general dentistry). So all aspects of what you might need can be handled here.

What type of equipment is used at Playa Smiles?

Many people wonder about what a dentist would be like outside of their home countries. The fact is, many things are the same. Many of the dentist train at the same schools or partner schools as the United States. Just because the prices are lower in Mexico, this does not mean the quality is lower.

Here is a sample of the type of equipment that is used at Playa Smiles just to put you at ease that they use modern dental equipment and current technology. They have hospital grade sterilization instruments (Autoclave and ultrasonic cleaning). They also have dental x-ray, ultrasonic scale, computer smile design, led curing light for resins, Dolphin cefalometrics, and computer based records.

How do appointments work and what dental work can you get done on vacation?

Many people come to Playa Del Carmen for one week, so what is it like to schedule a visit and what can you have done? It is best to schedule two weeks in advance.

If you are looking to have a cleaning, fillings done or an extraction, all of this work can be done in one day. If you need to have esthetic dentistry work done like crowns (both metal free and veneers), you will need to be here for 4-6 days. In this time frame they can get the work done for you.

What dental work needs more than one week?

If you need implants with crowns, this cannot be done  in one week. However, they can make one appointment and do the implant and then in three months have you return to Playa Del Carmen and do the crown for the implant in two appointments. So that is two excuses to come to Playa Del Carmen!

If you need Invisalign or orthodontics, this can be done in some cases for tourist.
