Elizabeth Delta, BC Verified by Phone
Reviewed 06 June 2013 "The best experience"
"Porcelain Veneers

My experience at this clinic was quite probably the best experience that I have ever had at a dental office. Dr. Gavaldon is a highly skilled dental professional who performs her work with diligence and great expertise. This is a lady who is best described by the term, workaholic. She has assembled a support team of professionals and others who serve to make her practice, and the comfort of her patients, paramount. Frankly, I was amazed at the efforts to not only provide transportation to and from the clinic by her staff, but at the care and attention that they all delivered. It was also really comforting to learn that dental professionals (such as an attendant maxillary surgeon) and other specialists were on hand for discussion and assistance should the need arise. Overall, I must say that I have never encountered skilled individuals who exhibited such modesty, warmth and kindness to a patient like me. I had several porcelain veneers done, and as well, two dental implants. All are beautiful, and I will be returning to this clinic for additional veneers and crowns in December. I like to think that Dr. Gavaldon and her staff have become friends. I so enjoyed meeting all of them."

"After 1.5 years of research I pulled the trigger on Ocean Dental. I was in contact with Ocean Dental rep David Lambarri. Very positive and helpful individual. Ocean agreed to give me a better discount for the Canadian dollar being so poor & a recession taking place in Alberta (was the deciding factor for me). David gave me a list of hotels / resorts, break down of costs for the all on four treatment, arranged transportation to & from clinic. Discussed if taking a look at complete lower crowns on lower was an option for timing (wasn't an issue on there end). Now keep in mind I was wearing a full upper denture & for over 18 years. A consultation would have to be conducted to determine if I was a good candidate. I only went to a dentist in Alberta to get a grasp of the procedure, estimate & 1st opinion. I had no x-rays to email and or take down with me. Called my travel agent and arranged a 1 week trip to Cancun the next week ($1800 for flights, resort, taxes, ect). Arrived in Cancun Aug 23/2015 (hottest part of the year). Settled into resort (Krystal Cancun). I was assigned to the older part of the hotel. Nothing spectacular but not a dive either. Had something to eat & checked out surroundings. Aug 24/15 - Picked up at the resort. Met with Ocean Dental staff at the clinic. Taken up stairs for my consultation. Staff seemed nice. Met with a young female Dr. (cant remember her name). Discussed all on four procedure & complete crowns on lower. All X-rays taken. Sent back down stairs while staff reviewed my case. Met with dental Dr. Lugo (hope I spelled in right) about 45 min later. With wearing a denture for 18 years, I experienced bone loss significant enough to worry doctor that the 4 implants might not take. My options were, another full denture, complete full bone graphs & come back in 6-8 months to see if they took, Complete procedure, roll the dice abit & possibly add bone graphs, membrane. Wouldn't no 100% until gums cut back & visual inspect conducted. He also said its beneficial to bring in a anesthesiologist for conscious sedation. I thought well if we do the visual inspection & Dr. is comfortable setting implants great. Otherwise at that point I could abort that option & just get the bone graphs & come back at a later date for implants. Another full denture wasn't an option for me. Obviously I am not a dentist so I had to feel Dr Lugo out abit about his qualifications, & confidence. Dr. Gavaldon was not in the office and wouldn't be until the end of the week (made me feel a little apprehensive). All the reading I have done about Ocean Dental was her work and not her staff. I decided to trust Dr. Lugo's opinion & get a cost for the all on 4 option / bridge work on lowers. Sent back downstairs to wait for estimate. Met with (not sure of his title) Martin. My original estimate was now over $1800 higher (Canadian). $500 extra for anesthesiologist & $1200 more for 4 possible bone graphs & membranes. I was a little hesitant to where this was going. Is this the part where the cash register starts making all kinds of crazy sounds (might of been overreacting abit). Now Martin gave me a pretty good deal (imo). I now asked the experience of the Dr.Lugo & implants to be used. My readings of there site was that they used top quality products. Martin & I tried to look at some previous before / after pics of previous patients. His experience around a computer seemed a little less than mine trying to find this info. He assured me that all materials used for implants were kept on record (we could not find this). Martin informed me they mainly used Bicon & AB Superior implants (to these i've never heard of). Dr. Lugo had 5 months experience at Ocean & 10 years experience total (thought does this include school because he was a very young looking gentlemen). In hind site I should of asked for his credentials (probably me overreacting again). I told Martin I need some time to think about this. Went out to the lobby & researched the two implant companies. I did not like what I was reading. My thought process was if there charging cheaper prices, are they using cheaper products???. I met back up with Martin. I told him I would conduct the procedure only if they used implants that they advertised & I researched previously. Also I receive the model, batch numbers of each implant used so I could reference at a later date if needed. Hand shake conducted & date set for Aug 27th/2015. Transported back to resort.

Clinic seemed modern & clean. Was very happy about the one stop shop application. It is very inconvenient for me to drive hours to separate cities in alberta to see different specialists. WiFi was good to kill the time. Air conditioning was pleasant. Bathroom on both floors. Surprised at this point the investment that was made in this facility of dentist equipment that i've seen."

Reviewed 11 August 2015 "People compare my smile to that of a celebrity"
"I don't even know how to start my review. I'm so blown away with how amazing everything was and how it's continued to be, that I'm having trouble putting it into words. I got every one of my teeth replaced with crowns, and I can easily say without over exaggerating at all, getting this done has completely changed my life for the better. I have a brand new smile, that I often have people compare to a smile of celebrities. My confidence level has gone through the roof, and I'm not longer ashamed to grin as wide as possible. This has lead to me smiling significantly more often, especially when interacting with people, which in turn makes them smile and improves virtually every interaction. I can't express enough how glad I am I did this. I was incredibly nervous at first, especially since I was traveling out of country to have a pretty major procedure done, but now that it's over, I can honestly say I've never been happier, and would recommend it to anyone who feels like their teeth are holding them back in life.

I picked Ocean Dental after doing as much research as I could on google. But I still remember being very nervous, as not only was I heading out of country for a pretty major procedure, but I also didn't know anyone personally who had ever done this or had gone to Ocean Dental. I was worried about a lower quality of care or service because of how big the price difference was from getting crowns done here in Canada. I've never been so happy to be so wrong. Ocean Dental was incredible at every point. The people were amazing (seriously, every single one of them was awesome), the office was clean, all the instruments seemed more advanced that what my local dentist office even had, and the quality of my final smile was something I never could have believed I'd end up with until I saw it. I can't describe how happy I am to have not only got this procedure done, but to have also done it at Ocean Dental. I have, and will continue, to recommend it to anyone who asks about my teeth. Although I can't speak for any other dental offices in Cancun (as I've obviously never been to them), it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Ocean Dental is considered the best dental office in Cancun. I can tell you my experience here was easily the best dental experience I've ever had in my life, and I'm so incredibly glad I went there."

Bone Graft

Bone Graft Is A Procedure That Is Very Popularly Performed After An Extraction, Sinus Lift, Etc... Bone Graft Is One Of The Best Procedures For Making Sure A Dental Implant Osseointegrates Properly & In A Timely Manner. Bone Graft Is Measured by CCs, Each CC Has A Cost of $200 USD, An X-Ray Is Great For Predicting Weather You Need Bone Graft or Not, But It Can Not Tell Us For Sure How Many CCs Your Case Requires.

Dental Implants Are The Conservative Approach To A Bridge. Dental Implants Has Its Pros & Cons Just Like Any Other Procedure. With A Dental Implant You Can Avoid To Shave Down Two Healthy Anchoring Teeth & Go With A Single Crown, The Fact Is That With An Implant In Most Cases You Have To Wait From A 4 Month To 6 Month Period While The Dental Implant Aosseointegrates To Your Bone Before It Can Be Rehabilitated & Restored. Once The Healing Process Takes Place After Placing The Implant, You Can Return To The Clinic Where They Will Slightly Open Up Again, Remove The Healing Cap, Screw In The Abutment, Take An Impression, Have The Final Crown Made & Placed. One Of The Pros Of Having A Dental Implant Rather Than A Bridge Is That If For Whatever Reason The Crown On The Implant Were To Break, Chip, Etc... It Would Be A Whole Lot More Affordable To Replace That One Crown As Opposed To Replacing Lets Say, A 3-Unit Bridge (A Bridge Has To Consist Of At Least 2 to 3 Units, A Bridge Can Consist of As Many As 12 to 14 Teeth As Well). In Some Case There Are Other Treatments Required Before Being Able To Place A Dental Implant, Such As A Sinus Lift, Bone Graft, Membrane, Extraction, Etc... Please Keep In Mind That These Procedures Are Not Included. A Dental Implant Has A Starting Cost Of $900 USD For The Surgical Phase (Which Is The Placing Of The Implant) After 4 to 6 Months When You Come Back To Get The Implant Rehabilitated You Will Responsible For Covering The Cost Of The Abutment Which Has A Starting Cost Of $100 USD to $250 USD In Some Cases, Also You Will Be Responsible For The Cost Of The Crown Which Has A Starting Cost Of $350 USD Depending On The Material You Choose.

Dr. Irma Gavaldon DDS, MS, AEGD

Dr. Gavaldon is a U.S Board certified dentist with over 30 years of clinical experience. She is certified and licensed to work in California, Michigan and all over Mexico. She has accomplished many goals in her carrer as a restorative specailist, including building Ocean Dental, her own clinic of specailists dedicated to providing top quality and affordable dental care to patients all over the world.

Dr. Gavaldon is a graduate from Mexico's most prestegious university, U.N.A.M (Universidad Autonoma de Mexico); She then went on to continue her education in Spain, Europe and the United States, where she obtained her Master's degree in Restorative dentistry from the University of Michigan. (which is one of the top 3 dental programs in the United States.) 
At this same University she had the honor to teach as a clinical professor to the 3rd year students in the Advanced Dentistry program. Here she was able to share her knowledge and help other students hone their skills.
While in Michigan she also gave back to the community by running the Outreach Community Program in Travers City that provided dental care to migrants workers in farms. This program helped over 400 people get the care the needed.

Dr. Gavaldon has put together a expert team of specialists here at Ocean Dental, equipped with the best in dental technologies and materials. She has even opened her very own CAD/CAM laboratory (The largest in our region of Mexico) so that our doctors can work more personally with our lab techs to complete our patient's work on time and without error.

Dr. Gavaldon is known as a perfectionist to her many patients, this is shown through her many hours of advanced learning courses and dedication in the clinic. Her hard work and care to detail is the example here at Ocean Dental and it is relected in the countless smiles that leave our clinic.

Please dont hesitate to inquire about your dental needs and how to set up your visit to our clinic.
