Dental Tourism in Cancún

Many travelers see dental tourism as an opportunity to get the healthcare they need at an affordable cost while taking advantage of their recuperation time in an exotic and desirable vacation destination.

We think it is a win-win scenario, but many people do still have some concerns surrounding dental tourism, and we can certainly appreciate that.

That’s why we have put together this section of our website to address some of the most common concerns we’ve heard from our patients over the years. Because when you could be getting your dental work done here, why would you choose anywhere else.

Relax in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations, while you recover your smile.

Picking the safest option in Central America

The cost of dental care in countries like the United States and Canada continues to rise, and as that happens, people are looking to other countries for their dental health needs.

However, the question, “is dental tourism safe?” remains to many. And the answer to that question is that it depends. There are very talented dentists all over the world, but nevertheless, you need to do your research and find the right dentist for your needs.

While many look to dentists overseas because they are a more economical option, the cost should be secondary to the dentist’s track record and qualifications.

If you do your research on Meza Dental Care, you will quickly learn that our dental clinic is one of the safest and most medically advanced options available anywhere in the world.

Our record speaks for itself

  • Between our two locations, our dentists have over 38 years of combined dental experience.
  • Our founder Dr. Meza is the 5th generation of dentists in his family. In fact, the Meza family name is synonymous with Dentistry in Latin America.
  • Each of our dentists has extensive training, including experience at UCLA; one of the top dental schools in the world.
  • Our lead dentist in Cancún, Dr. Mauricio Peña, has more than 15 years of experience in the field

It’s important for us that you are aware of everything that goes into your treatment.


A few reasons to consider Cancún

With so many countries in the world marketing themselves as dental tourism destinations, why should someone choose Cancún? Well, we think the answer is easy because Cancún is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Here are a few more reasons for you to consider.
World-Class Dental Care
Within Mexico, Cancún in particular is world-renowned for its extremely high medical standards and protocols. The region has a long history of being a safe, secure destination for medical tourists of all types…dental health, cosmetic surgery, fertility, and hormone treatments among others. And in Cancún, the hospitals are modern, advanced, and on par with those you would find in the U.S. and Canada.
For the Right Price
Cancún offers unparalleled value when it comes to the level of service you receive. The cost of medical services here is usually less than half of what you might pay in the U.S. or Canada, and with Cancún just a short flight from many U.S. airports, it’s never been easier to visit.
A Safe Place to Visit
Cancún is actually one of the safest regions in all of Latin America, thanks in part to the Mexican government’s dedication to the safety of this tourist and travel haven. Though other parts of the country have faced some challenges in recent years, Cancún remains a massive tourist destination, and the Mexican government dedicates a lot of time, social services, and investment to keeping it safe, welcoming, and accessible.
A City Where Hospitality Is Everywhere
Cancún has been built around welcoming international travel, so you’ll find that everyone in the city and surrounding region tend to be friendly and experienced in the tourism business. The vast majority of people in Cancún speak fluent English, and you can always find a friendly face.
One of the World’s Favorite Destinations
For over 50 years, Cancún has been considered one of the premier tropical destinations in the entire world. It’s a white-sand playground surrounded by crystal-clear tropical waters, with as many excursions, experiences, and amenities as you can dream up.
And Just A Few Steps Away
Many of our patients choose Cancún as a dental destination because it is a relatively short flight away, less than a 3-hour flight from dozens of U.S. International Airports including Miami, Houston, Dallas, Charlotte, and Washington, D.C.

The right value for the right reasons

Some people assume that healthcare in Cancún is less expensive than in places like Canada or the U.S. because it’s inferior in quality.

But really, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, at Meza Dental Care, we use the same exact brand name materials that dentists use in the U.S.

Here are the two main reasons we are able to offer such excellent value.

  • Our economies are smaller, meaning that manufacturers adjust the prices of materials and products accordingly.
  • Fixed costs such as rent, taxes, as well as labor costs are lower in Cancún than in the U.S. or Canada, and those savings are passed on to you.

A simple process from start to finish

One of the most common questions we get is “how does that process work”?

Here is a step-by-step of what to expect when you come to Meza Dental Care for dental treatment.

When you contact Meza Dental Care for the first time, one of our Patient Coordinators will listen to your needs and concerns.

They may ask you for certain documents pertaining to your medical history such as X-rays, past dental records, and pictures of your teeth.

Once our doctors have had a chance to review your information, your Patient Coordinator will schedule a call between you and one of our dentists.

The doctor will go over their findings with you and discuss your options and the best way to meet your dental health goals.

After you and the doctor have agreed on the necessary procedures, we will review the estimated costs with you and schedule your dental treatment plan and assist you in arranging your travel and lodging.

Once you arrive in Cancún, our friendly driver will be waiting for you at the airport, ready to bring you to us and on your way to your new smile. We go a bit more in-depth in our handy guide, which you can download here!
