Puerto Vallarta Still the Best Place For Dental Work

Puerto Vallarta Still the Best Place For Dental Work

Dental Work in Puerto Vallarta

Ex-pats who live in Puerto Vallarta rave about the medical and dental care they receive. Many people come to Mexico specifically to get dental work done. It’s much cheaper than the US or Canada and the clinics are state-of-the-art, as professional as one would expect north of the border.

We go for teeth cleanings to a local dentist and pay the nominal fee of $500 pesos for what could cost over $300 dollars in the US. There is little waiting time to schedule an appointment and we’ve never sat in the clinic in Puerto Vallarta for more than ten minutes.

We met a young lady recently who flew to Puerto Vallarta to have multiple wisdom teeth extractions. For less than the procedure would have cost her in the US, she was able to have teeth pulled, pay airfare, stay in a nice hotel and recover on the beach, in style.

Though some opt for an entire mouth full of brand new teeth, many visitors come for biannual visits and see a regular dentist in Puerto Vallarta, just as they would in their hometown. It’s not much different than planning a day at the beach with old friends.

Dental work in Puerto Vallarta and other places in Mexico is inexpensive because the Mexican government gladly subsidizes dentists’ education so they aren’t burdened by a student loan debt to start out their career. Some students choose to live at home and pay back a loan with a year of free service, which is a sensible option. Dental clinics in Puerto Vallarta are typically plain, unembellished environments with ordinary laminate counters, inexpensive art and practical flooring. North American cities have dental offices with inlaid floors, custom carpets, granite, marble, creative lighting, original art and elaborate play areas for children. The décor in Mexico is basic and functional. You come for dental work, not interior design. Dentists in Puerto Vallarta ordinarily work on their own without an assistant and also do the teeth cleaning procedure themselves. In the states a hygienist, who can make as much as $80 per hour, cleans your teeth and is often assisted when doing your exam. Mexico doesn’t have dental insurance and malpractice insurance is non-existent. You can receive everything from Zoom cleaning to implants in Puerto Vallarta at a great savings.

Que cómo es es.


Here are a few of our guiding principals at Boardwalk Realty:

“First of all, we really want to get to know you,”   When we know you, we can tailor home tours to your tastes.”

Secondly, there’s the legal side of owning in Mexico. “Besides our own experience, we can save you a lot of time and money by offering you complimentary consultations with our partner attorneys.  The nuances of how you buy here can save you a lot of money when you sell. It’s important to know what you’re doing on the purchase so that when you sell you can best use any tax advantages. This service is free to our clients and can be invaluable.”

Both partners agree that the most important element of Boardwalk Realty is our ongoing service and commitment to our clients after the sale.  We are both passionate about protecting the investment and security of our clients.  “Our clients become our friends, we see them socially, and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves”, adds Mike.

Boardwalk Realty Puerto Vallarta represents buyers and sellers of real estate in the entire Bay of Banderas area, and will soon add a rental and property management division.
