There are tons of dental care specialists to choose from in Puerto Vallarta.

Carl Timothy taking a selfing with his real estate staff in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe dental care in Puerto Vallarta is incredible. I have found the best dentist I’ve ever had in my entire life here in Puerto Vallarta and I’m 60 years old. He’s wonderful. I don’t feel any pain. He does incredible work for caps, bridges; all sorts of dental work. It’s just super. Personally, I’ve had a great dental experience here and I recommend my dentist to anybody who comes down here. 
 
The cost for dental work here in Puerto Vallarta is extremely inexpensive compared to what you pay in the US. A cleaning would be around 150 pesos (US $8). A bleaching process would be around 1,000 or 800 pesos (US $46 to $57). I haven’t had a cap done or anything like that for a long time so I can’t remember what those cost, other than the cost is extremely inexpensive when you compare it to US rates. 
 
I’ve never heard of anybody who has had a bad experience with a dentist here in Puerto Vallarta.
