    I need a crown and just happen to be traveling to Mexico next month. I've read a lot of good things, believe it or not about getting work done at the right clinic. The prices are usually half. I got a quote of just over $900 from my local dentist to finish out my treatment after a root canal. I'll be in the Cancun / Playa Del Carmen area and am just curious if anyone from these forums have had work and could recommend a clinic down there.

    I know a guy that went to dental school in Mexico because he had shitty grades in college. He practices now in NH and I notice that there is no mention of his education on his website. Knowing his academic skills, I wouldn't send my dog to him. There were no admission process when he went, if the check cleared, you got in. They taught in Spanish.

    Gain a crown / lose a kidney. Seems like a fair trade.

    Why stop at dental work?
    You should just go there for all your medical procedures

    No dentist experience down there, but last May my wife was CRAZY hung over one day on our vacation and I found a doc that loaded her up with IV's for $100. She was back at it by 2PM. Would do again.

    I wouldn't trust them just for a crown... spend the money and be safe.

    I've been researching it and have read many good reviews. Any idea if that had the work done in the Cancun / Playa Del Carmen area?

    Go in for a crown and come out with a sex change.

    No. Surprisingly, Tijuana. Plenty of Californians go there for dental work (and other things...)

    I'm sure like anything else, you can find reviews online of docs in the area. If you can find a highly rated one, I wouldn't hesitate.
