July 14, 2016 — Dental tourism has been expanding, especially for pricey procedures such as implants and root canals. Patients say they’ve received good care and saved thousands on expensive dental treatment by traveling abroad, but the ADA warns it could end up costing patients more if problems arise when they get home.
When Ralph Grosswald and his partner, Terri Heeter, of Santa Fe, NM, needed extensive, expensive dental work, friends told them about getting good care at a dental clinic across the border in Palomas, Mexico.
“We needed four crowns, and Terri needed a little cosmetic work, and it was going to cost about $6,000,” Grosswald told DrBicuspid.com. “We got good referrals from people who had work done there, and we had $6,000 worth of dental work done for about $920.”
