Los Algodones, dental care

Has anyone here had dental work done in Los Algodones? What was your experience? Have been thinking of going there ... Curious...

I am a 52 yr old teacher in Gilroy, CA. I have been going to the same dentist at "Dental Solutions" (Xochipilli Bojorquez) in Los Algodones. She has also treated my 82 year old father. I have had bridges, a root canal,a partial, a crown, and three implants. Dr. Xochipilli is a warm, caring person with a clean clinic. She will fill out your insurance forms and give you your xrays and records if you want them. Her prices are about 1/8 of USA prices.

She have taken refresher courses in several prestigious institutions including Harvard Medical School in Boston.

Dental Solutions: (928) 328 1121

Don't forget your passport. I think you need it to get back into the U.s.

Good Luck!

My wife had dental work done there last year as well as eye exam, glasses and contacts and all was fine. New porcelain cap was only $300 and they wanted $1200 up here and she's very happy with it. Her eye exam with 2 new pair of glasses and contacts was only $250 and they weren't cheap frames. Check out Dr. Jessie at Alberta Denistry. I think they're around the 3rd storefront on the right after you come into Algodonas

I have friends go there and their daughter and son-in-law fly from Michigan to have work done there. They all are happy with what they get.

When I lived in PHX my neighbor would go there. Good results and a lot less $$.

Been going there a few years now. I have had better outcomes than the dentist at home (Canada) whom I had for twenty years. I think he was getting old and grumpy.
I won't recommend any but do your research like you are doing and you will find three or four names of dentists that keep bubbling to the top. I recall one website I researched was the LOW site. (Loners on Wheels) and found the same few recommended names as the IRV2 site. I think each site had a survey asking the question about who goes to which Algodones dentists.
I went with the second most recommended dentist I found only because number one wasn't available when I needed one.
The equipment is excellent and very modern. More modern than my grumpy old dentist. The only disconcerting thing I find is that while they are working on you they are jabbering away in Spanish to each other. Kinda like chickens clucking away in a barnyard.
Interesting sidenote I know of a couple of the higher rated ones that actually live in Yuma. One is married to a retired US Border Patrol agent.
Not to discourage you but there are some that I wouldn't visit only you can do the research to get to your comfort level.
BTW don't miss the shrimp tacos. Hang a right at the main square by the police station and about half way down the block on the left is the Taco cart
Good Luck
