The dental care in Los Cabos is really good. My husband had his done here. My friend also had some work done on her teeth here.
There are people who come to Mexico specifically for the lower cost of living, dental care, and health care. There are a lot of medical vacations where people will come down for different things that might be a little longer term. For example, there is a lot of plastic surgery where people will come down to have that kind of work done on them. I don’t know the difference in the cost but it obviously must be less. Mexico is a destination for that so that tells me that plastic surgery here is of high quality because otherwise people will not be coming down here for that reason.
Dental care is definitely good here. What you are going to pay depends on the dentist. My friend had her crown done for US $250. My husband also had some dental work done and his was around $250 as well. We have another friend who had his crown done here, too and his cost $500, which is twice as much my other friend’s but it all depended on who he used as a vendor. My friend who had her crown done here for $250 went back to Colorado and asked her regular dentist there how much it would have cost had she had it done over there. Her American dentist told here that it would have been anywhere between $1,800 and $2,500. My friend was absolutely thrilled, not only about the savings but also of the quality of the work done on her in Mexico.
My friend was an emergency walk in because while she was here, she bit down on something that broke her tooth. The dentist here was able to get her in the same day and take care of it for her. Overall, the cost for dental care here is still significantly less than what you would pay in the US.
