There’s also the issue of traveling to a foreign country to see a dentist in Mexico. You need a passport, which will cost you $160. You need to check current international travel advisories, just in case something is going on that would make it dangerous to travel across the border. You have to pack yourself into a crowded van with a bunch of other people and deal with the sometimes long lines at customs. Once you’re there, you have to watch what you eat and drink or you may get sick. Is your dentist using local water to rinse out your mouth, and if so will it make you sick?
Mexican dentists require that you pay cash, and there are a lot of reasons they do this. Obviously, when you pay cash for anything it should make you a little nervous because you have no receipt if something goes wrong. Without a receipt, you won’t be able to file a claim with your insurance company for reimbursement, costing you even more.
