Our experience with the superb Dentics Clinic began with October 2019 when we arrived for a full evaluation of "All on 4," and a plan for treatment.
After full Xrays and lengthy discussion, Dr Naxi and her team proposed "All on 5" to be sure that the integrity of the jaw and bone would be assured throughout. In fact, "integrity" is the operative word in all of our dealings with Dentics: integrity of the unparalleled professionalism and state-of-the-art technology, integrity to the full attention to patient needs, and integrity of the relationship over the 9 months, and 3 visits to complete the work.
The process -- surgery, healing, fitting, and then 6 months of healing which were protracted for another 2 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic -- were all worth the wait and the risk of travelling from the US to beautiful Cancun when it re-opened (more on that below.) The results have truly exceeded our expectations.
We returned for the third time after wise consultation that suggested that more "training time" was needed with the new prostheses in order to assure, again, the integrity of the entire process. We have been recommending Dentics to everyone we know who might benefit from the exceptional professionalism and attention to every detail of patient care. The trip to Dentics is well worthwhile whether you are having extensive restoration, implants, root canal, crowns or routine fillings. The same ultra-professional detail is there for all procedures, with in-house CAD/CAM fabrication and expert fitting and adjustments, with substantial savings.
As far as travelling to Cancun, needless to say in June 2020 we were worried about getting on planes and staying in a foreign country. But the Mexican administration in Cancun has been able to gain a level of compliance far surpassing many US cities/states. Everyone in service wears masks and shields, the hotels which are open (only a small percentage) are immaculate and the staff attentive to safety.
At the clinic, every precaution is taken to make sure there is no chance of viral infection, from masks, shields, social distancing, and even a spray in the doorway to pass into the clinic. We travelled twice to Cancun and returned twice to quarantine and be tested negative. US airports and flights are the biggest worries, in our opinion, but the risk can be mitigated by wearing masks and face shields continuously. We did it, you can too.
