Traveling for dental care or medical care doesn't have to be halfway around the world. My husband and I go to Yuma, Arizona and get major dental work done across the border at Algodones, Mexico. They are well known for their many excellent dentists within a 4 or 5 square block area. I got a root canal and cap done in 2 days and $500. My husband had periodontal surgery to scrape the roots and put in something to help the jawbone regenerate and it helped save one of his bottom teeth. California dentists said $10,000-14,000, Sylvia Gaona Morelos charged $2000 for the entire mouth. Hundreds of people go there to get their prescriptions and dental work done. Medical is available more in Mexicali, I understand, a much bigger town to the west.
