Medical Tourism & Dental Tourism What Are They?

Medical tourism is the act of traveling to a foreign country in search of medical care, and dental tourism is the act of traveling to another country specifically for dental care. 

Why is dental tourism becoming more and more popular? Because dental care in the United States is notoriously expensive, even for patients with dental insurance. Meanwhile, dental tourism allows you to get more affordable dental care while vacationing in a foreign country.

Thinking about Dental Tourism? Here's Why You Should Choose Us

There are a few different reasons why patients may decide to have dental work completed abroad. Dental tourism at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center offers significant advantages:

Popular Practice for U.S. Patients

Over the years, we have built an excellent reputation with patients from all over the world. In fact, 98 percent of the patients we see at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center are from the United States. Although we are not located in the United States, we are certified by the American Dental Association and other American dental organizations.

Excellent Care at Affordable Rates

The most common reason why individuals choose dental and medical tourism is cost. Certain procedures such as All-on-4®, dental implants, and oral surgery are notably less expensive at our practice compared to practices in the U.S. Why? Practicing in Mexico allows us to maintain low overhead costs while using the same high-end materials used by other dentists.

Easily Accessible Location

Los Algodones, Mexico, is located just across the border from Yuma, Arizona. This makes it especially accessible to patients in Mexicali, and throughout California. If you choose to stay at a hotel in the United States, we can arrange for a driver to pick you up and bring you to our practice. We also provide medical files for you to show at the border so that you can bypass the line and get back to your hotel faster.

Highly Trained Doctor

One of the biggest misconceptions about medical tourism is that the care you receive won't be as good as what you would get in your home country. At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, this is not the case. Dr. Valenzuela was trained in the United States and is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and other organizations. However, he chooses to practice in Mexico because it allows him to provide affordable dental care to all who need it.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Our Los Algodones dental office is equipped with the latest dental technology. Our patients can enjoy faster, more comfortable, and more precise dental care thanks to our use of digital x-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, piezoelectric surgery, soft tissue diode lasers, intraoral cameras, and all-digital operatory rooms. We also use Plasma Rich in Growth Factor (PRGF®) technology to accelerate healing.

The best dentist and service I have ever had. I now have the perfect teeth and smile I have wanted for years. Don’t hesitate to have your smile back. It is very easy to park and walk across the border. Just a few minutes to the office. They employ the latest technology including CT scan and digital scans of your teeth and mouth to produce crowns. I had a complete restoration consisting of 3 implants and 26 crowns. Thank you Dr. Cota and Dr. Valenzuela.

The staff were all so polite, professional, kind and I can’t say enough about Juan, Kevin, Giovanni and all their medical assistants. If you are looking for a quality, and affordable dental procedure look no further! It’s a beautiful 2 1/2 hour drive from Palm Springs, CA. Park in the Yuma, AZ lot and walk a couple of blocks through the border to their office.
