Dental Departures patient, Ashley Oulette, combined a family vacation with an opportunity to receive high quality dental care at an affordable cost. After hearing the shocking amount that her family’s dental work would cost at a local Florida dentist, Ms. Oulette began researching other possibilities.
Ashley had heard about people traveling to other countries for less expensive, but still high quality dental care. When she began her research, she saw Cancun, Mexico as an option. Her family already had a vacation planned to Cancun, so she decided to explore the idea of combining her trip with dental care.
The price of the dental care in Mexico was a fraction of the amount she was told in the U.S. Her family could now take a vacation, plus all receive high quality dental care for less than what the dental procedures would have cost at home.
“I was nervous,” says Ms. Oulette. Family and friends questioned her choice to travel to Mexico for dental work, but she assured them she was doing the proper research. “There were phone calls and emails. I called a guy from the lab and started questioning him.”
Ashley had a consultation with the dentist before beginning any dental work. She was impressed with the state of the art equipment in the office. After the examination, the dentist recommended additional treatment. She had been advised to have these extra procedures before, so now while it was affordable, she had the work done.
Ms. Oulette’s advice to anyone looking to travel for affordable dental care is to get in touch with Dental Departures. She says, “They have been out there selecting dentists who are good. So if you can get it inexpensively, why not go to Cancun get your teeth cleaned and enjoy yourself? It’s a great option especially for those who do not have any type of dental insurance.”
