Growing Demand for Affordable Dental Care Propels Cross-Border Tourism

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as knowing that you need new dentures, a root canal, or one or more teeth extracted, but not knowing how you’re going to pay for it. A vast majority of inhabitants of countries like the United States, Great Britain, Canada, as well as throughout western Europe and Australia must face continually mounting costs for dental treatment.

Many of us focus on health insurance, but most medical insurance policies don’t carry dental insurance, which often requires a separate policy. Even so, deductibles, co-pays, and cost of treatments have steadily increased out-of-pocket payments for such individuals.

Thank goodness for a number of countries across borders now providing accessible and affordable treatment for dental patients. One couple living in Phoenix, Arizona, makes a habit of traveling south of the border into Mexico for ongoing and routine dental care.

The husband, needing two root canals, and his wife, requiring a partial denture plate, were more than satisfied with the services – and costs – of their dental care. In addition to enjoying the drive down into beautiful Mexico, the couple were able to receive high-quality and experienced care at a tenth of the cost that they would’ve paid for the same procedures in the United States.

Stories like these are common, especially for Americans living near southern border states. Mexico isn’t the only country offering high-quality services at affordable costs when it comes to dental services however. Costa Rica has become one of the most popular destinations not only for vacations, but for dental care in the western hemisphere.
