I am so happy with my new gold dental bridge! I am an ordinary man, but I felt like royalty by the way I was treated by the staff at White Dental Clinica. The procedure cost me only a fraction of what I would have had to pay in Virginia.
I went to Los Algodones on the spur of the moment. My old porcelain bridge, installed by a dentist in Salem, VA, broke while I had only one week of vacation left before returning to work. This happened on a Friday Night, and I knew it would take weeks before I could get a dental appointment here in VA, and perhaps a couple of weeks longer before I could get a new bridge.
I call White Dental on Saturday, and they told me I could come in on Monday so I booked a flight to Yuma, AZ. Brian and Lupita met me at the airport, and took me across the border, directly to the dental office on Monday afternoon. It was the cleanest and most modern looking dental office I had ever seen.
Dr. Matus treated me in a most professional manner. He removed the broken bridge, and took more time with me than any dentist ever had here in the US. He carefully explained the procedure to me, and then, made an impression for the bridge. He told me that a bridge could usually be installed the next day , but since I wanted a gold bridge (I was really tired of my porcelain teeth cracking and breaking.) he told me that the bridge would be ready on Wednesday. I was amazed at how fast I could get this done as it would have probably taken weeks in Virginia.
Brian was absolutely wonderful to me. He took me to find a very reasonably priced hotel that was nice, and near the dental office. He picked me up both mornings I was there and took me to the dental office. (Dr. Matus checked my teeth again on Tuesday, and did a great job of filling and re-constructing a molar.) Brian and Valeria invited me to go riding around with them on Tuesday which was a delightful experience. Brian took me to an optometrist for an eye exam and new glasses. He took me to Lupita's restaurant where I was treated to delicious food, free of charge.
On Wednesday Dr. Matus installed my new bridge which I really like a lot. Brian had me wait comfortably in the office reception room while his brother waited in line in the SUV to get near the border crossing. Then Valeria an Brian took me back to Yuma, AZ.
I had the most wonderful, and surreal experience in Los Algodones. Everyone at White dentist was so professional and kind to me. They really went out of their way to make my stay in Los Algodones truly memorable. While I was there I felt like I was in a dream because I had never been treated like that before. I am hoping to make it back there in December for routine teeth cleaning.
I highly recommend White Dental Clinica Dental to everyone. I cannot imagine being treated so well anywhere else.
