For many Americans, especially those who live in a state on the US border with Mexico (California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas), going to Mexico to get cosmetic dental procedures is a very affordable option. For some, it is the only option, as they don’t have dental insurance or their dental insurance has decided that the procedure they need is cosmetic and unnecessary.
However, choosing a cosmetic dentist can be hard. In Los Algodones alone, a town just across the border from Yuma, Arizona, there are so many choices that patients can feel overwhelmed. Here are some tips that will help you narrow down the number of choices you have so you can make a better decision:
1. Choose a dentist that speaks English.
Most dentists in Los Algodones speak English. After all, it’s a border town and American patients are one of their most important markets. However, it’s important to be able to communicate. A dentist that speaks English is not just a matter of convenience. It is a matter of safety. Make sure to ask when you call the clinic or preferably, speak with the dentist directly.
2. Find a dentist through a trusted source.
Not to toot our own horn, but if you want to find a reliable and professional dentist, LosAlgodonesDentalGuide.com is the best source you can find. We have worked hard to compile lists of leading English-speaking dental specialists, along with their addresses and phone numbers, for your convenience.
3. Read and listen to endorsements.
You may have heard about Los Algodones from a friend. But even if you are the first to in your circle to visit a dentist in Los Algodones, you can find lots of online and video endorsements and testimonials.
4. Look at before and after photos.
Once you have a short list, remember to ask the dentist to show you pictures of his or her work. After all, cosmetic dentistry is not only about techniques, but also about aesthetics. Photos will show you a lot about the dentist’s ability to create natural-looking results.
5. Get a guarantee.
Not every good dentist is going to guarantee their work, but some do and you might want to give preference to one who does. Make sure you find out what is guaranteed such as labor or materials, and for how long. Can you get the guarantee in writing?
Like we said before, there are lots of excellent and experienced dentists in Los Algodones. We think this list will help you find the right one for you.
