Mexico is quickly expanding its dental tourism industry, with multiple advantages including affordable dental treatments, proximity to US, and high quality of services. Americans seeking low-cost dental treatments are flocking to this Latin American country to gain from the growth of dental tourism in Mexico.
Many US citizens do not have dental insurance, spiralling dental costs upwards. Hence, the low costs are a major draw to dental care in Mexico, with costs falling as low as 50 to 70 percent of US costs, though that is not the only reason. Most of the dentists here have been trained in US & UK. Availability of highly skilled and experienced dental surgeons is also one of the reasons for growth of dental tourism in Mexico.
