I came to Mexico in February 2009 after my Dentist in Philadelphia told me I would need six dental implants and six extractions and that the cost would be approximately $34,000. As it happened, two relatives who live in San Miguel de Allende were having implants done there at a cost of $600 per implant. I decided to visit their dentist who, after examining me and taking her own x-rays, told me I did not implants at all! Total cost for the exam - $25.00; for the x-rays - $15.00. When I returned to Philadelphia, I sought yet another opinion. A local Perodontist agreed with my Mexican dentist - No implants needed!
