Dental and Optical Care in Mexico

If any of you are considering getting dental work or eyeglasses in Mexico, here is an excellent series of articles on the subject by Jim Twamley, an RV writer:

We have bought all our glasses in Mexico for the past ten years and have always been very happy with the quality and (especially) the prices. I have not had any major dental work done in Mexico but would not hesitate if the need arose. Their medical professionals are very well trained and very professional. Cleanliness is at least equivelant to Canadian or USA standards.


  1. I had a bridge done in Chetumal last year. They wanted $3,300 in Canada, and I got it done in Mexico for $550! I will never go to a Canadian dentist again unless it's an emergency. Even then, I'd be tempted to catch the next flight to Mexico and get the work done there!

  2. About 5 years ago I had a root canal and a new crown installed by a nice lady dentist in Guasave Sinaloa.
    About 5 visits over a period of close to a month.It was a tough one for her as she had to do some reconstruction in order to find enough base to attach the crown.
    The cost was 3300 pesos,about $330/US at the time.Still going strong,no complaints yet.
