Cancun stands out as one of the best places for dental tourism in Mexico. You get a unique combination of affordability, convenience, and a dream dental vacation. It is located on the Caribbean side of Mexico and it has the best white-sand beaches and blue-green waters in the country.
Destination and convenience are important factors to consider when making your decision about where you should go for dental work. Cancun is the best option if you are from the East Coast or if you are interested in getting dental work and a vacation at the same time.
If you’ve heard of Mexican dentists, below are some information that might help you in making an informed decision about why you should go to Cancun for dental work:
Cancun is one of the safest destinations for Americans and Canadians in Mexico. It is no surprise that Cancun is the top tourist destination for Americans abroad.
Dayo Dental has worked with thousands of dental tourism patients visiting Cancun for the past 11 years. No one has complained about safety. It is a safe and relaxing place you can enjoy.
2. Convenience / Ease of Travel
Most major cities in the US and Canada have direct flights to Cancun. With Dayo Dental, you just have to arrive at the airport. Dayo Dental can help arrange for your complimentary local transportation throughout your stay. This includes airport pickup upon your arrival and local transportation during your dental appointments. You just have to stay in the hotel zone area or downtown Cancun area to take advantage of this free transportation. It's very convenient.
This is also ideal if you’re getting dental surgery in Cancun, especially if you’re traveling on your own. After all, you can’t really drive yourself back to your hotel after a major dental implant surgery under IV sedation.
Tip: When riding local taxis, ask for the cost first before you agree to the ride. This avoids taxis taking advantage of tourists. You can also try Uber, although you may have to wait longer.
In Cancun, you can save about 50-70 percent on major procedures like dental implants. Most of the dentists we are working with offer package pricing, especially for full upper and lower dental implant restoration.
At Dayo Dental, your dentist can perform a pre-evaluation before you travel to Cancun. This will give you an idea of the recommendations and estimate prices before you travel. The final costs of the dental work will be provided by the dentist once he sees you for the initial consultation.
4. Offers a Fun and Exciting Experience
If you are seeking a nice family vacation, or if you just want to simply get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life, then Cancun is definitely the place to travel to. It is a haven for beach lovers, wanderers, and explorers.
Cancun has it all -- from pristine beaches, adventure or theme parks, diving spots, and more. Food is amazing, too. This place offers mouthwatering dishes which for sure will bring out a remarkable gastronomic experience. With all these being said, Cancun arguably is the best dental tourism place there is.
You get your dental work done while on an amazing vacation. That is hitting two birds with one stone, as they say. What better feeling there is to start enjoying your dental savings in paradise.
5. Proximity to the US and Canada
Cancun has a significant advantage in terms of distance compared to other dental tourism destinations like Costa Rica, Thailand, or India. Some procedures such as dental implants require at least two trips to your destination (with 4 months of healing time in between). You save more on airfare with Cancun. Plus, it's easier to plan a shorter trip to complete your dental work.
6. Highly qualified and experienced dentists
Cancun dentists are proficient in handling American and Canadian dental tourists. They understand that you can't stay long or travel back and forth easily. They do their best to minimize your trips. Dental appointments are scheduled efficiently to cover as much of your dental work needed as possible.
Dayo Dental partner dentists have the best combination of years of experience and training in performing extensive dental procedures like full mouth restorations, All-on-4, or All-on-6 procedures.
Dr. Jorge Carrasco, our partner dental specialist in Cancun, is the perfect example of an ideal dental tourism dentist. He combines years of experience, knowledge, and specialization making him one of the top 5% of dentists in Mexico.
If you are looking for a good dentist in Cancun, here are some of the tips you need to consider:
Tip 1: Know the dentist, not the dental office.
You have an edge if you have done your own research, not just on the dental work but also the dentist who will be seeing you for the dental procedures you need. It's better to check the credentials of the dentist first before setting up an appointment.
Select the specific name of the dentist who will perform the procedure, as opposed to choosing a dental clinic name. You may screen his credentials for training in the US, Canada, or Europe. At Dayo Dental, we are transparent and willing to uncover the best dentist ideal for your case.
Tip 2: Search for a dentist who has a proven track record with dental tourism patients.
Select a dentist who is more exposed to dental tourists like yourself. Not all dentists in Cancun are familiar with dealing with dental tourism patients. Find a dentist who is well trained to perform complex dental cases. Verify if your Cancun dentist has a successful track record of working with major dental cases, especially if you are looking to get full mouth restorations or full mouth implants. You need a dentist that can provide you with the best possible dental treatment you deserve.
Tip 3: Know how long the dentist has been in practice.
You don't want an inexperienced dentist working on your dental case especially implant cases. You need a highly experienced implant specialist. Someone you can trust and someone who is highly qualified to perform the procedure. At least 10-15 years experience is ideal. The more years the better.
Tip 4: Get a written guarantee on your dental work.
All the dentists in the Dayo Dental network provide you a 5-year guarantee. They follow through with the guarantee if something happens. You can also reach out to Dayo Dental to resolve any issues with your dental work. But we prevent issues from happening in the first place by screening the dentists.
Tip 5: Be a smart shopper.
Put the quality first before the price. At Dayo Dental, you get the quality that would equal to some of the top dentists in the US. You also get preferred (discounted) pricing that makes the dentists' prices in line with average prices for high-quality dentistry in Cancun, Mexico.
