Marcela Tracey, Traceys Dental Clinic, Los Algodones Dental Clinics
Marcela Tracey runs Traceys Dental in Los Algodones and takes care of the business side of the clinic.
While not a dentist herself, she’s studied dental procedures over many years and is involved in discussing and reviewing cases with her dentists.
Marcela’s true contribution is in knowing how to successfully run a business. She understands the value of specialized services, and that’s why she has specialized her clinic in implants, periodontics, endodontics and dental surgery.
Her father is a dentist and when she was a child, she was his assistant. However, due to her strong people and analytical skills, it was a natural fit for her to run the clinic.
Traceys Dental offers:
- Dental Implants
- Endodontics/Root Canals
- Dental Surgery Cosmetic Dental Services Dental & Prosthetic Rehabilitation
However, the clinic also offers regular dental services, such as yearly check ups, teeth whitening, etc.
Tracey believes that her clinic’s services are unique because it’s a family business and patients feel like they’re welcomed as family, in addition to excellent service and outstanding high quality dental care.
Marcela Tracey developed a special promotion for international (mostly American and Canadian) patients: an all-inclusive implants package for $1,200 US. This price includes abutments and rehab. The clinic also offers (with or without the package deal) transportation from and to Yuma, Arizona, and lodging at Hacienda Los Algodones (special discount for treatments of $500 and less and a free night for treatments of $500 and above). Her parents own the hotel, which ensures total patient care coordination to meet the needs of the patients.
Marcela enjoys the human site of her work. She says the most rewarding part of her job is seeing clients coming in with teeth so crooked that they are unable to smile. Many of the patients see her as a daughter because of how warm she is and how she takes care of them directly, always being present. Sometimes, long-term patients bring her gifts or take her out for dinner.
Marcela sees herself as a successful businesswoman, a housewife, and a proud mother of three children. She’s proud of having worked hard to make her clinic grow from one chair to three in only 5 years. She is accomplished, goal oriented, hard working, and loves what she does. As a spiritual person, she believes she was meant to do this work.
She also knows the pitfalls that have caused other clinics to fail to develop sustained and repeated business. She makes sure that her clinic has the best doctors and the best equipment. She believes in honesty and she sees to it that the procedures her dentists recommend are absolutely necessary. It’s no wonder that her customers are always happy and come back.
When not working, she spends quality time with her children and enjoys playing with them. She jokingly says that dealing with her teenage daughter is even more complicated than running a three chair dental clinic!
