Some Pricing Changes at Mexican Dental Vacation

Hi everyone, it has been awhile since the last issue of The Dental Alternative, and there have been many changes at Mexican Dental Vacation.

The biggest change was that Dr. Mackey has resigned his position, and has moved back to the US. He has suffered some health problems, and found that he really misses his family and friends, and could not continue. We wish him the best, and will really miss having him in our office. It was a real pleasure to have him work with us, and he will be missed.

So who is taking his place? We have two excellent dentists working with us, Dr. Tony, and Dr. Jennifer. Dr. Tony’s specialty is with dental implants, and Dr. Jennifer does all of the rest of the work, such as crowns, veneers, cleanings, etc.

Dr. Tony has worked in the US, and speaks very good English, as does Dr. Jennifer. As always, our manager is Alisa Bird, and she is the one who answers the phone when you call, coordinates all of the appointments, and takes care of our patients. She has been working with us for a little less than a year now, and is doing an EXCELLENT job.

The other big change is that we have substantially lowered our prices for the MDI system, which is a denture supported by Mini Dental Implants. Mini Dental Implants are implants with a diameter between 1.8 to 2.4mm. Here is the link to our prices and our page on dental implants, where the MDI system is explained.

Here is a link to a famous study about the success rate and applications for Mini Dental Implants. A very interesting read.

Our previous price was listed at $5500 for the lower arch, and $6400 for the upper arch. Now, our price is $3800 for the lower, and $4200 for the upper. Both of these prices do not include the $250 lab fee, which has stayed the same.

Why have our prices been lowered? Because Dr. Tony is very efficient in placing these implants, and feels that we can do this work for less than we have previously. We also have worked out a special arrangement with the implant manufacturer, which allows us to buy the necessary components at a discount. We pass these savings along to you.

This makes the MDI system more affordable to more people, and we are happy to announce that we have seen an increase in the amount of people taking advantage of the lower pricing.

If you have wondered what it would be like to finally be able to chew food normally, and have a denture that is properly attached, without messing around with adhesives and such, then you should seriously consider the MDI system. It can literally change your life.

Although the MDI system can be used in many cases for people who are missing all of their teeth, or people who want to remove their remaining teeth and have a secure denture, they are not a one size fits all solution. In some cases, you may need to have a denture secured by regular implants, implants that are a larger diameter than 2.4mm.

There are different reasons to use these larger implants, but the most common reason is that the bone present is of insufficient density to hold a Mini Dental Implant. The price for dentures secured by regular implants is higher, starting at $5600 for the lower and $6400 for the upper. The price is dictated by how many implants will be used. The number of implants used will be determined by the dentist doing the implant work. This is still a substantial savings compared to prices in the US and Canada.

As the summer approaches, why not book a dental vacation, and finally get that dental work done that you have been putting off? The sooner you do it, the sooner you will see the benefits of having a beautiful and functional smile.
