Why Americans Are Flocking To Central America for Dental Tourism

More people are electing to get cosmetic dentistry services than ever before. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, 500,000 people get dental implants each year. With rising costs of restorative and cosmetic dentistry in the United States, let’s take a look at why Cancun and Costa Rica are popular destinations for procedures like dental implants.

Dental insurance just doesn’t cover cosmetic dentistry

The typical dental insurance plan costs around $31 per month. You may get things like free cleanings and discounted fillings, but the annual maximum doesn’t even come close to covering the cost of dental implants. The average dental insurance plan will cover $2,000 maximum of your dental visit costs annually. The average full-mouth restoration could cost anywhere from $50,000 to $70,000. Since dental insurance will not cover the full cost of dental implants, you can save money by going to Costa Rica or Cancun, where the cost could be 50% to 70% less.

Dental tourism is extremely safe

While the savings are there, the next concern people have is safety. Here are some things to keep in mind when considering Cancun or Costa Rica for your dental implants:

  • Costa Rica and Cancun are among the safest travel destinations in the world?
  • According to TripAdvisor, the most common second language in Central America is English. If people don’t speak English, they are friendly with foreigners.
  • Our cosmetic dentist in Cancun and Costa Rica is an American doctor accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
  • The Dental Concierge partners exclusively with a clinic in Costa Rica and Cancun led by an American-educated dentist.

Another aspect of dental tourism that is extremely safe is that you get an upfront consultation. The consultation with the dentist is 100% free of charge. During the consultation, you will get an individualized treatment plan and the dentist will educate you about any potential health risks, if there are any.

Dental tourism is convenient

When you plan on getting dental implants in the United States, you have to adjust your work and life schedule when the clinic can fit you in. With The Dental Concierge, you can schedule your two appointments when it is convenient for you.

Another aspect of dental tourism that is convenient is that all of your transportation is arranged for you as part of the service. You get the most convenient air travel from your location to Costa Rica or Cancun, and someone is available to take you to and from your appointments.

Additionally, the flight won’t be all that long either. A direct flight from San Francisco to Cancun is just under five hours, while a flight from Miami to Cancun can be done in just over an hour.
