8 Reasons Why

Dental tourism and Guatemala are words that go together. The country is fast catching on among citizens of the Global North for its quality dental care and world class sites for cultural tourism and adventure.

For those sitting on the fence about Guatemala, below are 8 compelling reasons for choosing the country as your affordable dental destination in Latin America

Americans Leaving Home to Get That Hollywood Smile

Americans Leaving Home to Get That Hollywood Smile 

These days, nothing but the best will do. It used to be that you could make do on a so-so smile, with just a brush and a floss, healthy gums, and semi-white and almost straight teeth. As long as you didn’t have the spinach from lunch making you lick your teeth, you looked all right by most peoples’ standards.  Those days are gone. Today, if you really want to make it, from down at Wal-mart to the high-fashion world, your teeth must be virtually flawless.

American Dental Insurance Insufficient

Most people cannot afford to achieve that level of perfection in their dentition. The cost of a new mouth is exceeding that of a new car these days. Most people who thought that extra $5 per month tacked onto their health insurance at work for the dental plan are finding that it only covers half the costs of the treatment plan once they are in the dentist’s chair. It just doesn’t seem fair. You go there, trust the system, let the dentist do the initial exam, let his hygienist do the cleaning, and get all excited to see what the doctor of dental science has to say.

Los Algodones is the northern-most town in all of the vast country of Mexico. It sits just south of Yuma, Arizona, across the international border. This once sleepy little town takes two other crowns as well: Fastest growing tourist destination in Mexico, and highest density per capita of pharmacies, doctors, opticians, and most importantly, dentists in the world. The small city, once a secret of snowbirds, is now out of the bag as the go-to place for saving a sack of cash for Canadians.

North America is huge. One might think that Canadians would have a closer place to visit for foreign dental work. The truth is, Los Algodones fortunately encompasses all of the attractive features for Maple Leafers: Warm weather, and a choice of arrival options. The continent may be large, but is also connected; which means Canucks can come by car or truck, RV, motor home, motorcycle, or foot. Getting there is just that easy. Of course, the recommended way is to fly into Yuma, and cross the border by automobile.

American Seniors Travel for Dental Care

With someone turning 50 every 7 seconds in America today, a vast number of people are reaching the age where they are technically considered senior citizens. It’s an awkward age, especially in this modern age, where a person can feel old, yet young again. The old “this age is the new that age” paradigm keeps shifting upward, so that pretty soon, we won’t be considered old until we are in our 80’s; but that is still a long way off. For now, the baby boomers starting down the backside of the hill are driving the need for many mid-life makeovers and repairs.  This includes dental care. 

People of all ages are getting caught up in the travel craze as well. Fueled by the foodie generation’s constant craving for something exotic from foreign lands, and the proliferation of travel shows on every cable network, people are beginning to rethink waiting until they are retired to see the world.
