The top two important safety practices for dentistry in Mexico are the use of clean water (not tap water) and dis-infecting the dental chair water lines.

Do you drink the water when you go to Mexico? The answer to this question is different for every person. This is true for local Mexicans, Americans and Canadians.

If you ask Dayo Dental staff, we’ve drunk tap water in our Mexico dental destinations, and we were fine. But to be extra cautious, we just buy bottled water to drink when we are on the road.

So we are sitting here today discussing backup plans in case the world ends on 12/21/12. Yes, that’s tomorrow.

Cancun, one of our top Mexico dental destinations, is home to thousands of Mayans. Mayans are the original settlers in Cancun and Riviera Maya way before we started sending patients to Cancun for dental work. Well, actually, way before everyone started building beach resorts in Cancun. In case you are not in the loop, the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world on 12/21/12.

According to our dental friends in Cancun, the Mayans in Cancun are really not worried at all. Actually, they just roll their eyes about the whole talk of the end of the world.

As you know, aside from travelling to Mexico by yourself with Dayo’s assistance, we also have an optional charter van service.  The shuttle service takes people from the Phoenix Area to their Los Algodones dentists.

We received a surprise handwritten letter from a client named Calie, who shared her Dayo Dental review and experience.  She’s completed her teeth restoration through our team of Los Algodones dentists.  She must have written the letter to pass time during her day trip with Dayo to Algodones.

Calie is also a health and beauty critic, compiling a book about “The Best of the Best” health and beauty experts for Americans.

Here’s a transcript of her letter.

Let’s say you are in great need … Read More
