  32. 32. Dental Travelers Share Stories<br />My Dental Travel Guides Case Manager was exceptional to work with. She helped me with information about the upcoming trip, places to stay, border crossing, and the information about the doctor and his dental office. Then she stayed in touch with me through out my 4-day stay and the return trip to the dental office to finish the Bridge and Crown work I was having done.<br />-Bill L., California, Restorative work<br />
  33. 33. Dental Travelers Share Stories<br />I was very impressed with Dr Landeros and his staff. Everything went off without a hitch. I was in Mexico for less than a week. I am so happy that I went ahead and had Dr Landeros do the work. The entire process met my expectations and the best part: no more jaw pain and I look younger! I love that part! I am recommending Dr Landeros to everyone I know.<br />-Kathy F., Texas, Restorative work<br />
  34. 34. Dental Travelers Share Stories<br />The procedure itself took a little more than two hours, was painless, and Dr. Lorenzana did an excellent job of talking me through every step – in his perfect English. After the procedure, the only pain killer required was some ibuprofen for two days. I would certainly go back to Dr. Lorenzana.<br />- Herb S., Dental implants<br />
  35. 35. Dental Travelers Share Stories<br />My work consisted of two appointments. I needed a filling on one tooth and a three surface inlay on another tooth. So the first day I had my filling done and a mold taken for my inlays and then capped with temporary material.<br />The next day I went back and had my inlays adhered, and my teeth were as good as new. The entire process was painless. <br />My U.S. dentist had estimated my co-pay at about $1,200. My full cost in Mexico, around $300.<br />- Debbie N., California, Restorative work<br />
  36. 36. Will I like the dentist?<br />Most of our dental offices, especially those located near the U.S. –Mexico border, offer a free consultation appointment, so there is no risk to visiting the office, having a free exam with digital X-RAYS, and getting a dental treatment plan recommendation.<br />
