"I am happy with my teeth and the care once I actually got to sit in the chair"
4 50Reviewed 08 Jan 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Veneers
I was told the first appointment was for a consult and impressions and the second appointment would be to put my veneers on. Turns out they wanted 4 days of appointments. The 1st appt consult, 2nd impressions and teeth prep, 3rd apply veneers and 4th appt a checkup. Being told only two appointments when I requested info at home before was maddening as I scheduled my holiday activities around this. They picked me up from my hotel on time. But lots of waiting! Too much waiting. The amount of time you’re here, double or triple it. My email confirmation said I needed at least 25% down but when I was there they said they wanted 50% down and that they don’t do 25%. Also expect a couple extra charges, they always want to clean your teeth before they do anything and I wasn’t told that before I went in there.

The clinic itself is clean and professional. Many employees spoke English but during the times the doctor was reviewing, everything they said was in Spanish so I didn’t know what was going on. The dental assistants were very good and take good care of you. I am happy with my teeth and the care once I actually got to sit in the chair. But it got frustrating waiting because I was also on holiday. I would go back to this clinic but I would prepare myself for longer and more visits next time.

"I am happy with the honest service"
5 50Reviewed 20 Sep 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Endodontist Consultation
I arrived late due to airline delays. The pickup service was waiting for me and took me to Ocean Dental. Due to the late arrival, I had to wait a reasonable amount of time (15 - 20 minutes) to be assisted. Great personal attention by several dental assistants and dentists to evaluate my course of treatment. After an extensive evaluation, we decided the original treatment of root canal and crown was not possible due to cracked tooth not repairable. I am happy with the honest service and would recommend for your dental treatment.

"The service was top notch"
4.5 50Reviewed 27 Nov 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
The people at the clinic were very friendly, kind, and gentle. Their service was top notch. We were a bit worried at first, but after meeting the staff we had no worries. They are very knowledgeable.

This clinic was very clean, excellent equipment, and very caring staff. We are very glad that we choose this clinic. They have moved to a new place and the place is beautiful. It is great that the staff speaks English.

"Highly recommended!"
5 50Reviewed 06 Jan 2014 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Fillings,Dental Crowns
16 crowns, 1 filling

I cannot recommend Dr. Irma Gavaldon highly enough! I found her through much research online and bombarded her office with questions as I was nervous about traveling to Mexico for extensive dental work. I received responses from Benny within 30 mins. They were happy to field any questions. In fact, Benny would telephone me to check on the progress with my orthodontic braces.
Dr. Gavaldon is an absolute perfectionist and extremely pleasant, and spent a long time discussing my options to ensure I got exactly what I wanted. I know I’m hard to please but never felt rushed into any decisions - I had full confidence every step of the way. I had worn orthodontic braces for 2+ years in the U.S. and my case was quite complicated, I would need to follow up with veneers or crowns. Dr. Gavaldon gave me 14 new crowns, replaced 2 old crowns and a filling. Many hours in the dental chair, but Dr. Gavaldon and her staff made sure I was very comfortable and it was a very easy experience for me.
My whole mouth was about to look completely different so I was obviously a little nervous, but the result is beautiful. Dr. Gavaldon and her skilled staff made sure I had the look I wanted and my teeth look very natural. At checkup on my return to the U.S., my orthodontist told me the dental work was a first class job.
Everyone at the clinic made us feel very welcome and helped us with any arrangements. They were happy to collect us from our hotel for our appointments, but the clinic (in hotel zone) is very easy to get to, about 6 mins from our hotel. I came home with an amazing smile, and something to really smile about - my dental bill was a quarter of what had been quoted in the U.S. My husband had dental work done also and he too is very pleased with his treatment.

"Quick, efficient, and pain free"
5 50Reviewed 04 Dec 2013 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Crowns
The treatment went great! It was quick, efficient, and pain free! The price quoted was so inexpensive compared to the States, and quality was A+. We were there about 2 hours the first time, and 1 hour the second. The rest of the time we hung out at the resort eating ourselves into oblivion!

Bone Graft

Bone Graft is a procedure that is very popularly performed after an extraction or sinus lift, etc. Bone Grafting is one of the best procedures for making sure a dental implant osseointegrates properly and in a timely manner. Bone Grafts are measured in cc's. Each cc has a cost of US$200. An x-ray is great for predicting whether you need a bone graft or not, but it can not tell for sure how many cc's your case requires.

Dental Implants Are The Conservative Approach To A Bridge. Dental Implants Has Its Pros & Cons Just Like Any Other Procedure. With A Dental Implant You Can Avoid To Shave Down Two Healthy Anchoring Teeth & Go With A Single Crown, The Fact Is That With An Implant In Most Cases You Have To Wait From A 4 Month To 6 Month Period While The Dental Implant Aosseointegrates To Your Bone Before It Can Be Rehabilitated & Restored. Once The Healing Process Takes Place After Placing The Implant, You Can Return To The Clinic Where They Will Slightly Open Up Again, Remove The Healing Cap, Screw In The Abutment, Take An Impression, Have The Final Crown Made & Placed. One Of The Pros Of Having A Dental Implant Rather Than A Bridge Is That If For Whatever Reason The Crown On The Implant Were To Break, Chip, Etc... It Would Be A Whole Lot More Affordable To Replace That One Crown As Opposed To Replacing Lets Say, A 3-Unit Bridge (A Bridge Has To Consist Of At Least 2 to 3 Units, A Bridge Can Consist of As Many As 12 to 14 Teeth As Well). In Some Case There Are Other Treatments Required Before Being Able To Place A Dental Implant, Such As A Sinus Lift, Bone Graft, Membrane, Extraction, Etc... Please Keep In Mind That These Procedures Are Not Included. A Dental Implant Has A Starting Cost Of $900 USD For The Surgical Phase (Which Is The Placing Of The Implant) After 4 to 6 Months When You Come Back To Get The Implant Rehabilitated You Will Responsible For Covering The Cost Of The Abutment Which Has A Starting Cost Of $100 USD to $250 USD In Some Cases, Also You Will Be Responsible For The Cost Of The Crown Which Has A Starting Cost Of $350 USD Depending On The Material You Choose.

Dr. Irma Gavaldon DDS, MS, AEGD

Dr. Gavaldon is a U.S Board certified dentist with over 30 years of clinical experience. She is certified and licensed to work in California, Michigan and all over Mexico. She has accomplished many goals in her carrer as a restorative specailist, including building Ocean Dental, her own clinic of specailists dedicated to providing top quality and affordable dental care to patients all over the world.

Dr. Gavaldon is a graduate from Mexico's most prestegious university, U.N.A.M (Universidad Autonoma de Mexico); She then went on to continue her education in Spain, Europe and the United States, where she obtained her Master's degree in Restorative dentistry from the University of Michigan. (which is one of the top 3 dental programs in the United States.) 
At this same University she had the honor to teach as a clinical professor to the 3rd year students in the Advanced Dentistry program. Here she was able to share her knowledge and help other students hone their skills.
While in Michigan she also gave back to the community by running the Outreach Community Program in Travers City that provided dental care to migrants workers in farms. This program helped over 400 people get the care the needed.

Dr. Gavaldon has put together a expert team of specialists here at Ocean Dental, equipped with the best in dental technologies and materials. She has even opened her very own CAD/CAM laboratory (The largest in our region of Mexico) so that our doctors can work more personally with our lab techs to complete our patient's work on time and without error.

Dr. Gavaldon is known as a perfectionist to her many patients, this is shown through her many hours of advanced learning courses and dedication in the clinic. Her hard work and care to detail is the example here at Ocean Dental and it is relected in the countless smiles that leave our clinic.
