Mexico Dental Network currently represents more than 18 different dentists from 5 distinct dental clinics in Tijuana. These dentists have known each other and worked in sister clinics for many years. They have formed a strong cooperative association between them, being consummate professionals, with the same goals of excellence. At any of the clinics, you will benefit from the collaboration and consultation of the group. Within the association, there are not only numerous highly capable general dentists, but also many specialists including endodontists, oral surgeons, implant specialists, anesthesiologists, pediatric dentists, and orthodontists. You can choose your dentist, ask for the clinic of your choice, or our patient coordinators can help guide you to the clinic or specialist best suited for your specific dental needs.
Of course, the team at Mexico Dental Network provides all general dentistry, but at some of the clinics, they are especially good at dental implant placement and rehabilitation. Also, some of our staff are extremely good with smile makeovers with veneers and crowns. Our dentists can also do “all on 4” and “all on 6” dental implants for full arch replacement. These fixed, zirconium dental prosthetic devices, are the latest technology, and are fixed permanently in your mouth.
First, the costs are much cheaper, while the quality of the work is excellent. Second, Tijuana is right next to Southern California. It is easy to get here, just 20 minutes south of downtown San Diego. You can either drive to the border or fly into San Diego. Our patient coordinator can help you get the rest of the way. We can pick you up at the border and give you easy instructions. We will even help you set up hotel reservations, should you need it and your transportation.
Tijuana has become one of the safest Mexico border cities, and our clinics are all in the nicest part of the city. You will be safe, and we will help you feel secure.
At any of our Tijuana dental clinics, the same guarantee holds true. As the best materials are used, and our dental labs produce the finest crowns, veneers, and dental prosthetic appliances, we will warranty all materials against failure, with the exception of accidents, or medical problems the patient has, that are thing not within our ability to control. Our dentists will replace or repair any problems that may occur. We will guarantee crowns from one to five years, depending on the material used, with the solid zirconia holding the longest guarantee. If a patient must to return for warranty work, they won’t be charged. If a patient develops a medical condition that causes a failure, was hit in the mouth and breaks a crown, that is not something that is the clinic fault, and there is no warranty. Also, if a patient later decides they want whiter crowns, after giving prior approval of the color, before the dentist cemented them in place, they must pay 50% to repeat the work.
In Mexico, the Health Department now prohibits sedation to be done in a regular dental clinic. But that isn’t a problem for us, as we are affiliated with a Medical clinic. They have a certified operating room where we can take our dental patients. One of our clinics is actually located in the same building, and whatever preparation needed would first be done in the clinic, and then take them to have treatment in the OR. Sedation in Mexico cannot be done by the dentis. There must be a certified anesthesiologist to administer the IV sedation and monitor the patient’s vitals. We don’t want to put the patient’s health at risk. The truth is, although there are dentists in Tijuana who will do sedation in the dental chair, if the Health Department catches them, they would be severely fined, as well as closed. Our clinics practice all things according to the proper regulations and do thing right.
If you park on the US side, and walk into Mexico, the Mexican Customs will ask for your passport, and you will need to fill out a temporary tourist permit. If you visit into Mexico is for under 7 days, there is no cost. But if you are planning to come for several trips, and don’t want to fill out a tourist permit, there is a minimal fee, and you can ask for a 180-day permit. If you drive across, unless you drive over to the entry for Declarations, you won’t actually pass through Immigration, but will be passing through Customs. If Customs stops you, they will not ask you for a tourist permit. They are simply checking if you are brining things into Mexico that should be declared. Only about 1 in 500 cars is stopped.
If you need to have extensive dental work done, it is a hassle to go back and forth over the border. We do offer transportation from the Mexico side of the border, but our driver can’t drive you back and forth to a US hotel. The truth is, hotels are nicer, and much less expensive in Tijuana. And Tijuana is safe. Don’t believe the negative hype you hear. The part of the city where our dental clinics are located is nicer and more secure than many US cities. There are a lot of fantastic restaurants to eat at, Tijuana is famous for it’s gastronomic district. There are beautiful malls, and the beach is close by. We would recommend patients to download the UBER app on their cell phones, (as well as get a temporary data plan), and use UBER to go everywhere, cheaply, and safely.
We can make the arrangements for you to be picked up at the San Diego Airport. We have contacts who charge $50 or $60 USD to deliver you to the clinic. However, we also recommend using UBER to bring you to the border for about $25. Then, you just call your coordinator before you cross, and they will have the driver waiting to pick you up and take you to the clinic.
It will cost you a little more, because on International Airport taxes, but not too much more, you would need to check fares. However, we can pick you up directly from the Tijuana Airport, and return you when you leave. Tijuana has a very nice, and modern airport, although it is smaller than San Diego.
In our Tijuana Dental Network, we are well connected with all Tijuana dentistry, and have great relationships with specialists, sister clinics, medical facilities, and several ultra-modern dental labs. We are ready to offer you full service, to meet all your dental needs. With our newest clinic, Dr Mexico Chaparral, we now have a place that is very visible and easy to get to with a lot of parking. Even it you have an appointment in one of the other dental clinics, you are welcome to park in the Easy Parking building, and walk across the street to Dr Mexico, to wait for your transportation. We are one fellowship of clinics and support one another. We say this because sometimes there are crossed wires, and a patient may find their phone doesn’t work once they are in Mexico, and now they feel lost. But from the whole area, you can see the Easy Park. Dr Mexico is right across the street. You can’t miss it. Go ahead and wait there for your ride and feel free to make a call.
