The Yucatan Dental Center (Cody) became the first dental clinic in the world to receive certification by the Health Council of Canada, which supports the high quality standards of this outstanding Yucatecan institution.

This was announced by Dr. Roberto Sosa Martinez de Arredondo, director of the Central Odontológica de Yucatán, who said that they received the certification plate in a ceremony to held at the Mérida Country Club, in presence of the coordinator of the Health Council of Canada for Mexico, Luis Cabezas; William Crysler, Canadian evaluator; and Catherine Gauthier, commercial and health delegate of the Canadian embassy in Mexico.

With the obtained certification they seek to promote dental medical tourism to the clinic, since they already cater to a good number of foreigners, most of them Canadians who come to spend the winter season on Yucatecan soil.

Dr. Roberto Sosa emphasized that they already have the certification of Mexican standards and now their high quality work is endorsed by the Canadian Department of Health,  which will give more confidence to foreigners to come to Mérida for dental services.

Dro Sosa exlains that this has been a 3-year process that began in 2015, since for three years Cody has received the visit of Council staff, who provided guidance, advice and made the necessary corrections so that they could carry out the evaluation, which was finally approved on April this year.

Cody obtained the certification with a 99% approval, the highest rating that the aforementioned Council has given in its history to any dental clinic inside or outside Canada. Cody became the first dental clinic in the world to obtain this certification with a 99% compliance.

The Central Odontológica de Yucatán had to meet a series of requirements to receive certification, from the creation of service manuals, to maintenance, technology and equipment issues, the quality and validity of the instruments, the quality of the medicines and materials they use, as well as other matters of the administrative order.

It states that they covered the international standards of medical tourism and it is expected that the number of foreign patients that the Central Odontológica de Yucatán already serves will grow, which is equivalent to 5% of the total number of patients.

Finally, Dr. Roberto Sosa pointed out that the clinic has 16 specialties, such as radiology, endodontics, prosthetics, maxillofacial surgery, periodontics, restorative dentistry and orthodontics, among others.
