My dental issues were extreme. I needed a full rebuild due to lack of affordable dental care in the US combined with periodontitis. I had 20 crowns, 2 root canals, 1 extraction and 4 implants. The lowball price I got here, in the US, was $65,000. Obviously, I opted to try elsewhere.
After 2 years of research and saving money in the "tooth fairy" fund, I finally narrowed my choice down to Circle dental. Their reviews across many different forums were mostly 5 stars. I contacted 4 clinics in Algodones by email with specific questions. Circle dental was the only one of the 4 to reply with clear answers to my questions and more information that I found helpful.
I was contacted by Tony, the dental coordinator. He was quick to respond to all my questions (I had many) and made the whole process quick and easy. His sense of humor was a huge bonus!
My first appointment was Monday. I contacted the shuttle service, they met me at the border and whisked me off to the clinic in plenty of time. (I used the shuttle service for all of my appointments and it was great.) I received my initial exam/x-rays and cost estimate that day, with several care options. Once I had discussed the options with my husband and decided on a course of action I called to make my appointment to get started. I was surprised to hear "first thing tomorrow morning."
The whole process is truly geared toward getting you taken care of quickly and efficiently, as most clients are travelers, and they do it well. I saw three different dentists that day and all were excellent. One prepped me for crowns and made my temporary ones, one did my root canals and Jiminez did my implants. All of this was done in one day. I had the next day to recoup and then was back on Thursday for my permanent crowns. Finished by 2 pm. I came back in on Friday for a minor adjustment in one area and was finished. (For a few months until I return for the crowns on the implants). The entire staff, from the shuttle drivers, receptionists, x-ray techs, dental assistants and dentists, were friendly and helpful. They took very good care of me.
It has been almost 2 weeks now and my mouth is healing up nicely. The work I got done looks fantastic and feels good. I am still restricted to soft foods for a bit but am looking forward to being able to properly chew again.Time will tell how well things hold up but I am very optimistic that I chose the right place.
