My treatment by Dra. Sonia Morales and her staff was excellent. I went into her office early November 2015 with severe dental problems requiring immediate attention which they responded kindly to. I was on time for my first appointment and was taken in almost immediately for my free consultation with Dra. Morales. Once I chose one of the treatment plans given me, Dra. Susana Romero went right to work. Soon Root Canal Specialist Dr. Julio arrived and by the end of the first day he had relieved the severe pain I was having caused by 4 exposed nerves via 4 root canals. After the first two 1 hr root canals Dr. Julio asked me how i was doing and if that was enough for the day. I told him I wanted to continue if he was willing. So he did 2 more. I fell asleep during the last one as I was tired from driving all the way to Algodones earlier that day. The only pain I felt during the procedures was from the numbing injections which were nothing compared to the tooth pain I had.
Years ago I went to a US dentist requiring a single root canal. He said he was not prepared to do that procedure that day. I asked him to just pull the tooth because I was in so much pain, thus losing the tooth. That would never have happened in Algodones.
I also think being a root canal specialist serving many Algodones Dentists Dr. Julio probably does more root canals in a week than some US dentists do in a year.
I spent two more consecutive days in Dra. Morales' Office. None of my time there was wasted. Something was always being done to accomplish my final dental restoration. In 3 days I received a total of 9 root canals and 5 extractions. Originally it was expected I would need 6 root canals and 8 extractions, but Dr. Julio was able to save 3 extractions with root canals. I cannot imagine how long all this work would have taken in the US. Months, at least.
I returned a week later and got 11 crowns. I opted for pure Porcelain crowns because they looked the best and contained no metal. I was getting so many crowns Dra. Morales gave me Zirconia for the price of Porcelain, a double discount. At this time I also received two titanium implants, at old extraction sites, from an Implant Specialist whose name escapes me. The implants were a breeze, and I had only a little soreness which went away in a couple days. No infection, no problems.
I will now return to Dra. Morales office in February 2016 to receive my remaining 5 implants at the 5 extraction sites. Six months later I will return again to get the implant abutments and crowns.
I'm looking forward to returning to Algodones to continue my dental restoration. So far, my dental pain is all gone and the crowns received so far look great.
My Thanks goes out to Dra. Morales and her staff for their diligent effort. I also apologize for taking so much time in submitting my positive review which they deserve.
I chose this clinic from internet reviews, plus I wanted a female dentist because I think women have better manual dexterity. Dra. Morales also has a very bright sunlit office. A very clean relaxing atmosphere.
