Los Algodones Featured in National Public Radio Story
When Ted Robbins from National Public Radio (NPR) decided which Los Algodones dentist to choose for his story on dental tourism in Mexico, he chose Mexico’s dental capital, the small border town of Los Algodones, Mexico.
During this three-minute radio segment, Robbins interviewed patients of Sani Dental Group at the clinic’s hotel, Hacienda Los Algodones. One of these patients is Brian Quaid, a cabinet-maker from Seattle, Washington who made his pilgrimage to Los Algodones for extensive dental care. When finished, Quaid will have received 22 new dental crowns and 4 root canals, a deep cleaning and scaling for a price tag of approximately $5000 at Sani Dental Group, a mere 10% of the cost for this same dental work in Seattle which easily tops $50,000 or more.
LosAlgodonesMedicalGuide.com is a local market website dedicated to informing patients about the dentists, dental clinics, doctors, pharmacies and hospitality and tourism options available for patients in Los Algodones. LosAlgodonesMedicalGuide.com educates patients about what to look for and how to find the best dentist for their individual needs. One of the clear recommendations on this medical guide is for patients to conduct thorough research of the top clinics and to choose a clinic that has been certified or accredited by an international healthcare accreditation organization. Sani Dental Group is a highly recommended dental clinic because it is the only dental clinic to be certified by the Medical Tourism Association.
The cost savings of dental care is an obvious attraction for dental tourists from the USA and Canada. But what about the quality and safety of getting dental care in Mexico? Victor Jimenez, CEO of Sani Dental Group encourages patients to consider many important factors when choosing your dental provider in Mexico. “Unless you speak Spanish, it’s important to choose a dental clinic that has English-speaking staff and dentists. It’s also important to choose a dental clinic that has many specialists on staff. You want to receive the best possible dental care from top specialists, not from general dentists that may not be able to diagnose or provide the proper treatment for your needs,” says Jimenez.
Patrick Goodness, CEO of LosAlgodonesMedicalGuide.com also recommends that dental patients seeking care in Mexico should visit the dental clinic website and review previous patient testimonials. “Patient testimonials are the best way to learn about the complete patient experience. Don’t hesitate to ask the dental clinic for the names, email addresses and even phone numbers of past patients. This is your health…so it’s important to do your homework to ensure that you choose the very best dental clinic for your needs,” says Goodness.
When it comes to safety, Los Algodones is a small, quiet…some would even say, “sleepy” Mexican village located on the US border, adjacent to Yuma, AZ. Considering that the average Los Algodones dental patient is over 60 years old, it’ safe to say that Los Algodones is geared to seniors and retirees looking for a slower pace and the security of a popular tourist community that ensures that all tourists remain safe during their visit.
