My second trip to Dentallianz, Matamoros, México, was in December 2014 to get the rest of my dental work done. I had put off most of my dental work so I had 4 teeth that needed crowns, this involved 4 root canals, 4 restorations of those teeth, and 4 crowns. In addition, I needed new dentures, upper and lower partials.
Dr Carlos Herrera arranged that I would have all the work done over 3 1/2 days. I must say I was very surprised that I felt very little discomfort after the root canals and restoration work done all in one day. When the lab finished the crowns,
Dr Herrera put them on those teeth and we made impressions for the partials.
On the 4th day I headed back for Galveston, Texas where I live. Again as with my first visit to Dentillianz, the cost was one-third of what I was quoted in Texas. A very good value.
Also Dr Carlos Herrera speaks fluent English & Spanish.
A note about traveling to Matamoros, México: I drove to Brownsville, Texas, both trips and left my car in Brownsville [in a parking lot with an attendant for $5 max/day next to the Gateway International Gate]. I walked across the International Bridge [also known as the border] putting coins in turnstiles each direction [$1.00 in Brownsville, 30 cents American coming from Matamoros. The walk takes 10-15 minutes. There are taxis on both sides. I am a 71 year old woman and I had no problem whatsoever. Matamoros city is a beach resort with an interesting city center near Dentallianz. Easy to walk places: taxis available. [P.S. If you have concerns about the border, the US Government has websites, and you can telephone for details in English.]
I chose Dentallianz; Matamoros, México; because I wanted to find a dentist in México: I understood that many Canadians and Americans get dental work across the border and save a lot of money. I did a lot of searching on the internet. Also I emailed friends for referrals. Eventually I figured out that Brownsville was probably the closet border town for me to drive to. Then I put in a search for "dentist near the border in Brownsville". Dentallianz came up and I filled out their form online. Before I knew it, I was corresponding with Dr Carlos Herrera. I sent him a scan of my X-ray and he gave me the same information as the dentists did here in Texas. I asked for an estimate and an appointment. Dr Herrera helped me with arrangements. When I got home from my first visit in May 2014, I emailed my family and close friends,
"I couldn't have made a better choice".
Dentallianz is very clean and modern, and staff is very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend them. I have recommended them to my son and friends without hesitation.;
