How to Save Money on Your Dental Care?

When it comes to dental care, money matters. It’s not a secret that many Americans have serious dental problems to the point of losing teeth because they can’t afford the treatment they need. To make matters worse, even dental insurance plans have become sort of a “discount coupon” deal, forcing most patients to postpone needed dental care because they simply cannot afford it.

If you are one of the many people who struggle to make ends meet, don’t despair. Many with dental problems save a small fortune and still get high quality dental care by just driving south of the border to the Mexican town of Los Algodones, a town well-known for providing expert dental care to visitors from the US and Canada.

Note that since most Americans come from nearby towns and cities, they don’t need to add hotel and airplane tickets to these numbers. It is extremely common for residents of Yuma, Phoenix, Flagstaff, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Scottsdale, and Tucson to routinely come to Los Algodones to take advantages of the lower prices of dental care. However if you are traveling a long distance, Los Algodones offers very affordable and comfortable accommodations.

How much will your dental care cost in Los Algodones? The actual price may vary depending on the specific dentist, the scope of the procedure, your specific needs, the type of material you choose, medications, etc. Contact a dentist in Los Algodones to get more specific information about the procedure you need in order to get a more accurate price.

The savings that Americans and Canadians realize by choosing a Los Algodones dental clinic is so significant that for many, it’s worth the long trip from New York, Chicago, Washington, Oregon, California and even Canada to save money on dental care.

But why is dental care so expensive in the US that Americans have to go abroad to get it?

a) Running a dental clinic is very expensive in the US. More than half of the money you pay is used to cover the costs of the clinic.

b) Dental insurance plans are becoming less and less effective at reducing dental costs. Benefits haven’t risen significantly in years and new plans work as discount programs rather than proper insurance.

c) High dental care costs create a vicious cycle that results in even higher dental costs. People put off getting dental care because it’s expensive, and then one day, the problem gets worse and they are forced to get a more complicated and expensive procedure.
