Medical and Dental procedures in the USA are notoriously expensive and many people have discovered Mexico as a professional alternative for a fraction of the price. While taking advantage of medical procedures and general medical practices in Mexico are a growing trend, the dental profession has been booming with those North of the border for several years. And, the trend continues to grow.

So, saying that the majority of dentists in Mexico (and Rocky Point) have modern facilities, modern equipment, very comprehensive training, speak English, and take better care of their patients is good to know, what about the prices? Everyone has heard that the procedures are “cheaper”, but what exactly does that mean?

Well, wonder no more. Here is a list of the most common procedures and a comparison of average prices in USA versus prices in Mexico. You might not be buying a condo with your savings, but it will very likely be worth the trip down to have your dental work done. And, who knows? You might just fall in love with Rocky Point and buy a condo anyway…
