As you know by now, what makes Global Dental Healthcare so unique is that we are retired dental surgeons with 75 years of combined experience and as you can see by these pictures we love what we do.
We spent a few weeks in January 2020 and most recently (now that Covid is just about past) in July 2022 personally vetting sevaral Mexican dental clinics along the US border and in the greater Cancun Region - What a wonderful, illuminating experience that was!
The central pillar of the GDH business model is our personal, on-site vetting of each of the Mexican dental clinics that we recommend to our patient clients. The GDH vetting process focuses upon more than a dozen dental health procedures & protocols that we instituted as dental surgeons in our practices, and that we have grown accustomed to here in the US. The following are some of these criteria:
- Current state of the art dental equipment including digital equipment (CBCT unit and digital scanner);
- On site dental laboratory.
- Current state of the art sterilization and infection control;
- Procedures and protocols: needle stick, water filtration, handpieces, pre and post op instructions;
- Academic credentials.
- Years in practice, where studied.
- Advanced/CE training; specialty training.
- Review of some of their cases.
- Staff: how they relate to patients and each other.
- Communication: English fluency; timeliness of communicating via email and telephone.
- Specialists (ortho, endo): are these specialists on site or nearby
- Materials used and compatibility with those used in the US
- Implant systems used.
- Amenities: accommodations, air plane reservations; shuttle services.
- Guarantees of their services.
These are the questions we frequently get from our patient clients:
Keep my teeth or have them all removed?
Crowns, bridges, implants?
Gold, acrylic, porcelain, e max, zirconium?
How can I afford it?
Should I wait or should I start now?
Will it be worth all the money it will cost?
Dare I go abroad for my treatment?
Who can I trust?
Does this sound familiar to you? If it does, join the crowd of millions of Americans who are currently finding themselves in this same situation. Yes, technology is a wonderful thing, and in dentistry it has resulted in the addition of multiple treatment possibilities and options. But, one of the "side effects" of all these recent advances is that now dental treatment is often so complex that it is extremely easy to feel confused, overwhelmed and almost paralyzed in trying to make a decision.
Add to this the fact that dental care is becoming more and more expensive, to the point that many people cannot afford to have their serious dental issues addressed. It is estimated that 1/3 of Americans do not seek dental treatment because they cannot afford it. Global Dental Healthcare was formed precisely for people like you. We feel confident that we can help you.
Cancun, Playa del Carmen & Cozumel: June 2022:
The Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel region is a major Caribbean resort and tourist mecca featuring the best of both Old and New Caribbean Mexico. Serviced by two international airports (Cancun & Cozumel) with many daily flights to and from the US, it's both easy and inexpensive traveling there .You can choose to stay either in one of the upscale resorts along the beautiful beaches or find a cozy, picturesque native hotel in the region.
You will find especially enjoyable the wide range of truly unique day trips that you can engage in. Spend a day snorkeling, diving, sailing or just lounging around on the beach; or, when you need a break from the beach, try exploring the ancient Mayan ruins that are scattered about the Yuctan - each with its own special flavor and its own unique market area featuring the distinctive character of old Mexico - it's all a treat!
You also need to know that as part of the dental care that you will receive from one of the select high-quality dental clinics that we have chosen for you, you will receive free shuttle service to and from both the airport as well as to and from your hotel to all of your appointments. In addition, as part of your “dental package” you may be assisted in finding accommodations and, in addition, you will receive a courtesy reduction in the rate.
A Tale of Two Cities - Yuma AZ and Los Algodones: 01/28/2020
The lovely city you will visit for your dental treatment is safe and friendly and even the novice traveler will feel comfortable and at ease soon after settling in. You will receive extraordinary care throughout your entire dental procedure and have unforgettable travel experiences as well.
Although the city is small, it is quite busy with a variety of restaurants, shops and street vendors offering goods in a wide range of both quality and price. An exclusive and expensive restaurant might be across the street from a simple family-run, home-cooking lunch counter. In general, the food is tasty and safe. Some well-lit, colorful souvenir shops may have the same or similar items as those in the street vendor’s carts. The ubiquitous street vendors often do all they can to convince you that their wares are the best! “No gracias”! will be one of your first learned and often used expressions.
Mexico is a beautiful country with a diverse culture. People are friendly and they will smile if you speak a bit of Spanish. A few basic phrases, a smile and a sense of adventure can go a long way.
