I needed a bone graft and implant, but had delayed the procedure in Houston due to some pending issues with polyps in my sinus cavity. After removing the polyps, the expense for the implant procedure was, in my opinion, excessive.
I located Dr. Benitez on the internet. His in-house assistant, Aby was extremely informative and patient in working with our schedule. We found Aby to be completely accurate in response to my many questions. We experienced no security concerns with entering Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. Dr. Benitez is only a stone's throw from the US-Mexico border.
The bone graft and implant procedure took approximately 2 hours. I had been thoroughly checked by my dentists in Houston, and Dr. Benitez conducted the identical protocol which I would have experienced in Houston. Dr. Benitez took special attention to my previous sinus passage concern and incorporated a membrane to protect the sinus.
I will return in a few months to have the crown installed and enjoy the fact I will save over $4,000.00 in costs. Truly amazing.
Finally, enough cannot be said for the personal attention that Dr. Benitez and his staff showed me. During my time in South Texas, I returned several times for a follow-up examination. I never received any impression that I was burdensome, and, in fact, I believe that Dr. Benitez truly encouraged me to return if I had any concerns. I am now retired, but I will continue to return to Dr. Benitez for all of my dental needs.
Regarding Dr. Benitez's facility, the clinic was clean and he had all of the necessary dental apparatus (ie. panoramic xray, etc.) that you would find in any modern facility. Dr. Benitez's staff was impeccable.
