Dental Testimonial by Dean Porter, Seattle, WA
Bring your bad teeth and go home with the best!
Dental Testimonial by RED LMP, Seattle, WA
Taking a Mexican Dental Vacation was one of the best things I’ve ever done. For less than I would spend on a crown in the Seattle area, I flew to beautiful Mazatlan, Mexico, hung out on the beach for a week and got a crown too! I’m no financial genius, but this is a no brainer!
Dental Testimonial by Fernand & Ruth, Canada
We are very happy with the dental work you have done for Ruth. From you Veronica to Dr. Isabel and Dr. Lino we were very well taken care of. Thank you for a job well done. We will keep recommending your office as a great place for getting their dental work done.
Hope you had a good holiday season and the best to all of you in 2012.

Dental Testimonial by John Wong of Vancouver, BC Canada
I had many crowns done last June (2011) at Mexican Dental Vacation. The dentist was well trained at a dental university. The work was professionally done with precision, good ethics and attitude. Veronica's service was super. The responses were faster than the ones I get in town. Everything was customer first, fair and friendly.
I would recommend Mexican Dental Vacation to anyone!

Dental Testimonial by Ann Hall, Canada
Thank you for your greetings.
I had lots of dental work at your clinic and was extremely pleased with the great work. I am only sorry you do not have a clinic in Cabo where we are going in January as my husband has lots of work to be done. Thank you again,

Dental Testimonial by Thom Baker
May you treat people as good as you treated me, in the new year. (2011)
Dental Testimonial by Gudrun Moore
I visited your at the Mexican Dental Vacation in 2009 twice for acquiring six crowns and one implant. I remember Dr. Jenny and Dr. Guzman to be very professional and very competent. Even the young dentist who did my root canal, and whose name I cannot recall, was very good. I have no problem in recommending your clinic to anyone.
Thanks for a very good service.
Dental Testimonial by Craig Sheiner, Sonoma, CA
Here is a dental testimonial from Craig Scheiner,
which he wrote for a travel website. It is very honest, and we published
it as is, with no editing.
December 8, 2005
Like many folks I was shocked when my dentist told
me last June it would cost $4500 for a removable bridge with three
teeth and a floating bridge which would consist of a new tooth
suspended by caps between the teeth on either side. I have no insurance
for something like this, but beyond that, I could not understand how
dental work like this could possibly be worth so much money. There was
no hi-tech work involved.
The dental methods had hardly changed in the last
half century. The more I thought about it the angrier I got. I
determined I would pay a fair price and no more. I began a web search
for a dentist in Mexico.
My wife and I are not strangers to Mexico,
although we know no doctors or dentists there, other than in Oaxaca. We
know that in some larger urban areas dental care is as good as back
home, which for us is Sonoma, California; about an hour north of San
Francisco. It took a couple of interesting hours Googling "Mexican
Dentist" and the like to find some information and a few folks to email.
After some back and forth correspondence I chose
mexicandentalvacation.com in Mazatlan. It is a home business run by
Nick Konev, a Canadian.
He focuses on Canadians and Americans for clients.
He does not provide dental services to locals as far as I know. He had
hired Dr. Guzman, a Mexican dentist, whose wife is also a dentist, but
for a Mexican healthcare organization.
Nick made sure Dr. Guzman was qualified by
Canadian and American standards. He completed his requirements to
perform implants last April, but as this was to be my first Mexican
dental experience I decide to go with the bridges for now rather than
implants to see how things worked out.
A few days after emailing Nick for some
information, he phoned me just like my home doctor might. He answered
my question straightforwardly.
He emailed me a price list of the services he
offered so I would know before leaving home exactly what it would cost
me. Sonoma: $4500, Mazatlan: $1700 for exactly the same thing. If I
wanted nickel instead of gold: $1340. Nickel is not recommended,
though. When you see a person whose gums have a black line around the
tooth it's because he used nickel instead of gold for his crown or
I traded my Puerto Vallarta timeshare for one at
El Cid El Morro Tower in Mazatlan, but Nick has arranged for lower than
normal room rates at various resorts if you want to pay for your
lodging out of pocket. He offered discounted greens fees for the 27
hole golf course on the property and a free massage during the time I
was there also. The El Morro Tower is a good place to stay.
The accommodations are very spacious, the grounds,
pools and beach are as good as any mid-level Mexican resort. The people
who work there are the best in every way and the restaurant on the edge
of the beach is fabulous.
We ate lunch out regularly but never found a
better restaurant for dinner. The location of the resort is not so
great. There is not much of interest when you walk out the door to
explore. It is not dangerous, just not many shops of interest. The
primary tourist area is called the Golden Zone, about a mile down the
road. There are lots of hotels lining the beach, lots of shops and
restaurants and bars. You might want to stay in this area instead.
I arrived on a Sunday in September and at 9 AM
Monday I was at the dentist office. It's Mexico, so we started on
Mexican time, noon. Between 9:30 and noon Betty Ann, my wife, and I
strolled along the Malecon, explored the stands at the Zocolo, and had
a delicious lunch across the street from the dentist office at The
At noon, Nick drove me to a shopping center 10
minutes away where a business specializing in x-rays, CAT scans and the
like did a panoramic x-ray of my mouth. Cost: $14, time in to out, 25
minutes. I paid out of pocket as this was not included in the price.
Ten minutes later I was in the dental chair with
Dr.Guzman grinding the tops of two teeth and making molds for my new
teeth. He made up two temporary crowns and attached them. This was my
time of doubt. There was no going back, but if it turned out to be a
poor job there would be no permanent damage. I would just have to have
everything redone when I got home, and of course it would cost me much
more for the experience.
The dental room had everything that was needed but
not more. One cabinet with a sink and the items needed for my procedure
and no stock of extra supplies. The mechanical device to swing the
overhead light was not as heavy duty as what I am used to in the
states, neither was the dental chair, and the water for rinsing is
drawn from bottled water rather than plumbed to the tap. Everything was
spotlessly clean. Everything needed was there, but I saw no excess.
Nick acted as dental tech when needed, Dr. Guzmen
did the rest personally, like mix the mold making goop. The doctor did
not speak English except things like, "No bite, no bite" or "Close,
close." Nick filled in translating when needed. In a couple of hours I
was finished until Saturday, when my new dentures would be installed.
Time for the vacation part of my Mexican dental vacation.
On Thursday I got a call from Nick. He told me
the lab making the dentures had run out of gold and more would arrive
on Monday. He said Dr. Guzman could install the dentures Monday night
and I could fly home Tuesday. That was not acceptable. My flight left
4PM Sunday and I told him that was a firm time. He must have the job
finished then. I told him that in all of Mazatlan I was sure he could
find me dental gold.
Two days and several more phone calls later, with
my stress level at a steady high, Nick called Saturday and said the
dentures would be in Sunday at 11 AM. He had convinced the lab to move
my job to the head of the line. So the gold shortage was only for those
at the end of the line. I did not ask how much propina he paid to move
my dentures up to first place. I was concerned about the fitting; what
if they didn't? He assured me they would. I took a deep breath,
reminded myself the worst that would happen would be going home and
having them redone.
Sunday morning my wife and I packed and took a
cab to the dental office. Nick and the doctor were there with my new
choppers and ready to go. The crowns and upper floating bridge fit
perfectly. The lower removable bridge went in perfectly also. The job
was top notch. I was very happily surprised - and relieved. So were
But Nick had left out one detail. I got up and
handed Nick my credit card. "I'm not set up for credit cards yet," he
said, "Can you withdraw the money from the bank machine?" I'm limited
to $300 cash per day by my bank, so that wouldn't work. Nick asked if I
would make a direct deposit to his Wells Fargo account when I got home,
which I agreed to and did. An American having dental work done in
Mexico by a Canadian company with a Wells Fargo account based in
Oregon. My new teeth are truly international.
I imagine Nick is set up for CC's now, but if you
go be sure and ask.
One week from x-rays to dentures is faster than it
could have been done in the states, and delays are normal in Mexico so
I suggest you be prepared to stay longer than planned if necessary. The
dental work itself was top-notch for me.
The Thursday after I got home I had a regularly
scheduled cleaning appointment with my Sonoma dentist. He didn't say a
word about my new teeth. But the dental assistant, who did the actual
cleaning said "Beautiful job." Those were her exact words. And she told
me other clients were having their expensive dental work done in Mexico
*A note from Nick Konev
We now stock gold, so there are never any delays
with getting your work done. We also have digital x-ray and intraoral
camera technology to show you on a computer screen, the inside of your

Dental Testimonial by Bruce Delaney
I was raised on a cow ranch in Montana far from
town. After going to half a dozen different dentists while in grade and
high school, I found one I really liked and respected. He was always on
top of the latest dental and hygienic procedures; charged fair and
reasonable rates and was a personable individual; who also donated
services to those who really needed dental work, but could not afford
I stuck with this man for over 30 years despite
the fact that I had to drive 140 miles round trip for an appointment.
Later, he moved to a larger city, and despite a now 260 mile round
trip, I stayed as one of his clients.
About fifteen years ago, I myself had to move from
the ranch and tried to maintain my professional relationship with Dr.
Downing, but a 460 mile round trip became prohibitive and I sadly had
to find someone else to work on my teeth.
Unfortunately, despite going to four different
dentists where I now reside, I haven’t been able to find another whose
work stands up to what I’d become accustomed to, and their rates
started becoming exorbitant.
Dr. Guzman at Mexican Dental Vacation in Mazatlan
is an excellent dentist and for the first time in years, I feel my
teeth are being taken care of properly, and not costing me an arm and a
leg to do so.
Despite the fact that I am a “Gringo Who Doesn’t
Speak The Lingo”, these folks were extremely gracious, professional and
hospitable to me , and I had absolutely no trouble communicating with
them or the folks at the hotel, restaurants, gift shops, etc. Mazatlan
is really a nice place with pleasant people.
Over the course of two visits, I had two dental
implants, a root canal, and two crowns replaced. And it was still less
expensive, including air fare and hotels, then back in the US., and the
quality of work better than I’ve found for years.
As a bonus, I got to go deep sea fishing a couple
times and tried my hand at paragliding. I can only recommend these good
people highly. Their work is excellent, and Mazatlan a beautiful place
to spend some time. I’d give the whole experience five stars, and hope
Dental Testimonial by Frank, Scottdale, AZ.
Coming from Scottsdale Arizona, after boarding
ship in SanDiego , I Arrived Mazatlan on a Cruise ship at 08:00 on Dec
2, 2008. (the MS Oosterdam)
I had made appointment with Alisa and Dr. Jennifer
Hernandez for 09:00 on Dec 2, 2008 via e-Mail..
They were both there to greet me at exactly 09:00.
Dr. Jennifer spent 4 hours meticulously preparing, and "bonding"
(putting veneer on surfaces) of four front teeth which were discolored
and one even cracked, which was very unsightly.
I commented at completion of my visit, that they
not only saved me many hundreds of dollars under my USA dentist, but
Dr. Jennifer was without question the finest and most precise Dentist I
have ever had work on my mouth. (I have had MANY in my 82 years !)
I rate their services as "5 STARS" !!
I highly recommend them for any and all dental
