Dental care overseas


As reported in numerous stories, many Americans are travelling to Mexico and other countries for dental care. Ex-pats or Americans living abroad are also seeking dental services.

However, as highlighted in this article – determining the quality of your provider overseas is not easy.  (Of course, it’s not easy to find a good dentist for many of us at home – but that’s a separate issue.)

Evaluating dentists and dental services is different that evaluating other health care providers – due to the nature of the service.  Unlike most surgical procedures – most dental procedures do not require anesthesia, (which means that they can be evaluated on a first-person basis).  Of course – for my colleagues who assisted me in writing Bogotá! – it meant quite a bit of time in the dentist’s chair..

  1. Yes, I totally agree with you finding a good cosmetic dentist is not easy plus the cost you will expend just to have one. Correct me if I’m wrong cosmetic dental procedures do need anesthesia depending on the preference of the dentist.

    Short write up but very informative. 🙂
