CODY: Only dental facility in Mexico certified by the Canadian Health Care Council
Dr. Luis Cabezas (International Sales Manager) and Mr. Bill Chrysler (consultant), from the Canadian Health Care Council, are certified by the Canadian government to audit, evaluate, grade and certify clinics and hospitals, not only in Canada but in Latin America and Caribbean countries as well.
On Wednesday July 6, they paid a visit to Centro Odontológico de Yucatán (CODY), which is currently undergoing the certification process by the Canadian Health Care Council. CODY so far is the first and only dental clinic in Yucatan and Mexico to be certified by this Canadian organization.
Dr. Luis Cabezas, Canadian Health Care Council International Sales Manager, told The Yucatan Times he has been working closely with CODY since March 2016, in order to certify this Yucatecan clinic as the only dental facility in Mexico that observes the Canadian Health Care Council quality standards, positioning itself as a world class dental service provider for local and foreign patients alike.
Dr. Cabezas said the Canadian Health Care Council has been working for more than 10 years in Canada and many other countries in quality control and standards auditing. The Council has already certified three hospitals in the state of Quintana Roo, and a couple more in Mexico City, but CODY is the only dental clinic that shortly will hold this certification in Yucatan and all of Mexico.
Mr. Bill Crysler, Canadian Health Care Council consultant, stated that CODY has commited to standarize its procedures in order to get this certification, but he pointed out that the most outstanding fact about CODY is that it is a family business that has been operating for more than 30 years now, with the best quality standards.
CODY was founded by Dr. Roberto Sosa Martinez De Arreondo, honorary member and founder of the LATIN AMERICAN ACADEMY OF OSSEO INTEGRATED DENTAL IMPLANTS and VICE PRESIDENT OF THE DENTAL INTEGRATED BONE REPLACEMENT MEXICAN ASSOCIATION.
Dr. Roberto Sosa has been a college professor for more than 4 decades, he married Dra. Cecilia Milke Rosado who is also a dentist, and they have passed on to their descendants this noble profession.
Their daughter Dra. Karla Sosa Milke became a dentist, and their son, Dr. José Roberto Sosa Milke, is a Dentist Surgeon. He holds a specialty in Maxillofacial surgery, and a subspecialty in orthognathic surgery.
Mr. Crysler declared that he was very impressed by the facility’s hygiene, sanitation, the state-of-the-art equipment, the high quality work performed by the staff and even with the decoration!
Dr. Cabezas continued saying that in order to obtain the certification, a medical or dental facility has to go through several visits, and comply with all the points included in ten chapters of the Canadian Health Care Council manual.
Dra. Karla Sosa Milke, who was also present, told The Yucatan Times that she feels extremely proud of her family and that it is an honor for CODY to become the first dental clinic in all of Mexico to hold this important certification.
Dr. Roberto Sosa stated that: “this certification is a high distinction for CODY, and it comes as a recognition for the huge effort and the significant investment over many, many years. Dr. Cabezas came along a few months ago and made us realize the great potential of our clinic, that maybe we were not perceiving ourselves.”
Finally, Dr. Luis Cabezas concluded saying that it’s important to keep in mind that many Americans and Canadians visit Mérida for medical purposes, not only because of the savings in cost, but also because of the high quality service provided by hospitals and clinics such as CODY.
