I have a great tan and a gorgeous smile!

Hi Andrew,

I am not back home and have to tell you, I am still amazed at the work Dr Jorge Aciga has done for me. You are right, I have a great tan and a gorgeous smile.

You saw my before pics so I have now attached an after picture for you to see the difference. I am so happy.

Thanks again for all your help in getting this booked and completed.

Do I have any regrets? ABSOLUTELY NONE! Do I recommend this practice? ABSOLUTELY!

Of all the decisions I have ever made, the one made to commit my dental care to SmileMakeOverDental ranks as one of the best. The diligent, professional, sanitised care that I received at the hands of an unbelievably professional and talented group of dentists surpasses anything I have ever received before. The holistic interest taken in me and my dental needs, together with their dedication and skill, exceeded my highest expectations. Their efforts and kindness has made a profound impact on me, not only through the amazing dental transformation to my mouth but also to me as a person. Initially nervous, I was immediately placed at ease by Dr Tey and her team of dental professionals. My principal dentist, Dr Nolan (my "singing dentist") is an absolute champion and I have come to admire and respect him immensely. "Thank you, Dr Nolan" just doesn't seem adequate, somehow. It is not possible for me to recommend this practice too highly and I do so to the highest level possible, without reservation. Significantly, too, I have received quality dental care at a fraction of the cost here in Australia. Do I have any regrets? ABSOLUTELY NONE! Do I recommend this practice? ABSOLUTELY!...

In just 4 days you folks fixed every problem in my mouth and I love the new work.

I would like to take this moment to say thanks to the entire group for the dental experience that I had during the week of april 1 thru april 7. In just 4 days you folks fixed every problem in my mouth and I love the new work. My only regrets were that I did not find you sooner. If so I might still have my top teeth. This is the third time I have come to Mexico for dental work. My previous two trip were disappointing on several levels. Sani out performed those other dentists on every level. ...

I have a beautiful smile once again thanks to my referral from Dental Departures!

I have a beautiful smile once again thanks to my referral from Dental Departures! They are highly skilled professionals who connect the patient to the correct medical provider as per your needs. They offer a very personable service and their level of concern (hand holding if necessary) is not seen in most industries today. All questions and concerns are responded to immediately both through e-mail and telephone contact. It is very reassuring when you can speak with a live person at any time. These folks at Dental Departures are simply amazing! Thank you Jane P. I felt like you were my best friend and your concern for me was very touching and appreciated. I will always refer my friends and family to you and Dental Departures.
Thank you,

We recommend the entire procedure.

We were treated very well at Sani-Dental in Mexico. Very professional, clean , & competent . My wife is terrified of dentists and even she said she wants to go back .
She had some implants done and extraction. The extraction was already done when she said "okay-let's get started!!" The price is right too. Dental Departure were also very competent and professional. We recommend the entire procedure....

I figured I saved $36,500

I've been getting a lot of e-mails from other farmers without dental plans now that I am back from Mexico where I sat in a dentist’s chair for 10 hours over four days.
I suffered through some major construction work last month. I got 29 crowns, 3 bridges and a wisdom tooth extraction.
I figured the job would have cost me $42,000 at a home town dentist in Glengarry County, the final bill from the Sani Dental Group clinic was $4,740. That included a three-day stay at a hotel. Throw in the $800 round-trip flight from Syracuse to Yuma, Arizona, and I figured I saved $36,500.
The clinic, is a simple walk across the U.S. border in Arizona, south of Yuma. The Mexican town of Los Algodones has 350 dental clinics and "the largest drug store that I’ve ever seen in my life," Another Canadian told me he paid $7,000 for prescription drugs that would have cost him $70,000 in Canada.
Americans park their vehicles on the U.S. side, then walk across the border to fill prescription drugs or go to a dental clinic....

I couldn't be happier

I could not have been happier with the whole experience, which covered 70 % of my teeth. I was amazed at the technology including cat scans/3D imaging, and this enabled total control of all issues. These included sinus, jaw bone augmentation , depth of insert in relation to nerves, insert alignment etc. I ended up getting numerous extra crowns on teeth full of old fillings as the cost was low compared to back home. The clinic provide antibiotics, anti imflammatory tablets, mouthwash and pain killers. There was little discomfort even after several extractions. Chiangmai is a great place to visit with lots to do in between visits to the Dentist....

I love my new smile!!!

This experience with Dr. Aguilar was much better than I could have imagined!!! He was thorough, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, understood my needs and was an artist! He designed my smile to uniquely fit my mouth and face...every veneer (and I did 20...10 up and 10 bottom) he personally oversaw the technicians work. He took special time to show me his modern (analog and digital on site lab). The staff were also friendly, professional, on time and assisted me with every question from my teeth to sightseeing. I obviously would highly recommend KEMM Clinic!!! ...

Everyone made what was for me an anxious trip for an unknown procedure just about carefree.

"This is Gerry Vitagliano to thank you mightily for all of your thorough, rapid and impressive help and services in setting me up with the Dalia Dental Clinic in Tijuana earlier in the week. Dr. Dalia was able to see me immediately. I experienced no pain and was always solicitously treated. Dr. Dalia and Mr. Gasparo were just great as was the suggestion to stay at the Hotel Pueblo Amigo. Nothing could be handier, as this good hotel is steps across the plaza from the dental office. Everyone made what was for me an anxious trip for an unknown procedure just about carefree. I’m very grateful to all... I shall be returning for future dental work with pleasure. "...

It was so nice to hear a dentist say...NO... to work I was ready to pay for.

I had reservations when I was thinking of setting up the appointment while in Thailand, but your dentaldepartures customer service rep, Jane, was so helpful in getting me to the best dental clinic for the work I wanted done. She answered all my questions and I felt very confident with the decission to visit another dentist other then my own here at home in Washington.

My experience with Bangkok Smile Dental Clinic was a very positive one! The office staff was professional and very friendly, everyone made me feel very welcomed. I have had some very bad experiences with dentists over the year so my stress level was on high alert. The dentist I worked with was so calming and reassuring that I would feel no pain. They offered gas as an option during the procedure. I went in with the request to replace 2 crowns that my family dentist at home said needed replacing due to age. After the exam my Bangkok dentist recommended I only replace 1 crown. Even thou my back molar crown was at least 25 years old, she said it was still intact, had no decay whatsoever and felt it had years of life left. Also, this is a problem molar where I have had a root canal done and she explained that anytime work is done on a tooth you can open a can of worms and cause the tooth to become aggravated and my only option then would be an implant.

I so appreciated her taking the time to explain all this. It was so nice to hear a dentist say...NO... to work I was ready to pay for.

In the end I had a thorough exam, xrays and one crown replaced, with gas during my appointment. My bill was $484.00 for the highest grade of porcelain crown & $114.00 for the procedure, xrays and gas. Wow! this work would of cost me well over a thousand dollars with my regular dentist. I will definitely return for more dental work and recommend your website to my friends and family.

Thank you so much for all you do at ...
