Great dental clinic and staff

5 50 Dentist Consultation • Paid: $1150

Great dental clinic and staff. All questions and concerns were addressed, pricing verified and treatment planned. The same sophisticated and high tech health care in the US at 1/3 the cost. Outsourcing medical to Mexico is the way to go!

I didn’t even feel anything

Dental Crowns, Root Canals, Extractions

Impressed, impressed, impressed.

I had a full mouth restoration replacing over 20 years of crowns and retreat the root canals. First I had an evaluation in June and was impressed with the High-end technology and equipment, dentist services, evaluation and of course the cost of dental plan. When I came back in September, I had only 6 days, which is really hard to restore over 22 crowns, retreat the root canals and extract the necessary teeth. Dr. Irma Gavaldon greeted me in the office and wished a pleasant painless procedure. Dr. Gustavo Mareno was taking care like no other dentists back home in my entire life. Dr. Javier Paz extracted 5 back teeth including 2 wisdoms, installed the bone graft and sew, I didn’t even feel anything. Had dinner after one hour after extraction and had no pain, no inflammation.

All medicine they prescribed; I didn’t even use for no need reason. Dr. Guillermo Gomez retreated my root canals, using latest technology and spending a lot of time under the microscopic and many Xrays by Genoray sensors until the canals were done extremely perfect. If you’ll look on a panoramic xray, even blind can find the difference with the work he’s done and previous. Now I have to return back about in 6 month for the implant work. They installed temporary single crowns which look like expensive zirconia material, and I feel it my own teeth. Coming back home, my neighbor highly experienced dentist with a high-end practice in Aventura, FL noticed my excellent teeth and didn’t even notice that is temporary teeth and highly complimented the work.

I would like to thank the whole crew of CDS including assistants, technicians, administrative staff, and drivers who never were late and highly punctual like Swiss. Some days due to my lack of time, doctors were working with me 10 hours with huge patience. And I’ll see you all soon again and happy I’ve chosen you.

I will say everything was perfect, extremely clean and professional

5 50 Dentist Consultation • Paid: $22000

I went in February and got 1st phase of complete upper and lower done, I was very nervous about the procedure and out of the country. I will say everything was perfect, extremely clean and professional from the wonderful girls at the front desk to the dentist and surgeon and even the cab drivers who brought me back and forth every day. I don't have to tell you it was 75% less than doing it in Boston. I will recommend it all day long. Thank you.

Now with a movie star smile

5 50 Dental Implants, Teeth Cleaning, Root Canals, Dental Crowns

JOHN BEGIN CANADA After years of struggling with failed root canals and missing molars l was faced with the harsh reality that l needed work was done that was forty-five thousand dollars plus and all the inconveniences of trying to get restoration work done at home. l discovered Cancun dental specialists and called them. Right away they guided me in what to do.

Upon arrival in Cancun, l was picked up at the airport by one of their friendly drivers and dropped off at my hotel. Then l was picked up the next morning and off to the clinic. Was somewhat nervous and second-guessing myself what l was doing but once l was in their hands l was immediately put at ease. they did a very thorough evaluation and carefully explained my options for treatment. What a relief it was to have Dr Irma and her staff of professionals give me a permanent treatment at a fraction of the cost back in Canada. After five implants, fixing a failing root canal, eleven crowns, a cavity and many x-rays and teeth cleaning at no charge l am a very happy customer. These people make you feel so relaxed and reassured. They fix you up mentally and physically. Really feeling good about everything is done, no pain during or after treatment. Want to get yourself professional restoration work done these pros get it done. Now with a movie star smile.

Was painless and I haven’t had a problem since

Dentist Consultation

I was on vacation last year and went for a consult while there cause I did some research prior and was really hesitant, but watched reviews and videos and thought what the hell. Sadly can’t afford all the work done here in the states so I went. The contact that I had prior set everything up which was great. They picked me up at the hotel and took me to the dentist, waited, and drove me back to the hotel. The dental office was immaculate, it was obvious that they were up to date with the technology. Back to story, I winded up having a root canal which cost me $240.00 us dollars. It would have been a couple of thousands here. Was painless and I haven’t had a problem since.

Like I mentioned had contacted CDs before knowing I was truly thinking about having work done on my mouth but just wanted to see what they had to say. They took x-rays, several dentists came up with a plan and gave me an estimate. $12,000. For all the work they discussed with me. I had a price quoted here in us of $28,000 just for the top! Crazy! I didn’t follow through cause I had no vacation time left but they were great and kept in contact and occasionally reach out to see if I’m ready. I would like to go again. My front cap fell off recently and I need to go! But unfortunately with the COVID, I am stuck so I am considering what to do. Maybe I might make a video...Lol wow, didn’t mean to make this sooo long. Any advice? Even a place to stay? This time I will go to Cancun. Last time I was in the Rivera area.

Thank you Maria, it has been quite the journey with you and we are so happy to be on it with you. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you so much for joining Dr. Gavaldons extended family! =)

Overall the process was very professional & pleasant

5 50 Treatment of Dental Abscess

I had an emergency while I was in Cancun, a massive gum abscess suddenly developing in my mouth.

Dr Irma was very responsive and gave me an appointment as soon as I was in Cancun. She really took time for me, over one hour to consult me, do an x-ray, walk me through the possible next steps, explain to me the relevant medication. Overall the process was very professional & pleasant. If you are thinking in some dental work Dr. Irma Gavaldon is a great option.
