The Standards May Be Different In Another Country
If you are considering traveling to another country, such as Mexico or Canada, to have dental work done, consider that medical standards for cleanliness and best practices will vary in different countries.
This is not to say that there are no good dentists in those countries; however, the standard of care to which you have become accustomed and on which you rely to ensure your health and safety may very well not be followed in a different country.
Challenges In Follow-Up Care
Many dental procedures will require one or more follow up visits. If you travel to another country-or even to another city that is more than a few hours away-for your dental procedure, you may find it difficult or even impossible to make it back for a follow-up appointment.
If something needs to be adjusted or corrected, your dental procedure might end up costing you more than it would have if you had just stayed home and had it done there.
