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.
In case the world doesn’t end (don’t listen to us silly doomsdayers), everything will go exactly as planned for our clients scheduled for their Cancun dental vacation.
What exactly can you expect when you arrive in Cancun to see a dentist?
Once you arrive at the airport, Dayo arranges for a complimentary pickup from the airport to your chosen hotel in Downtown Cancun or the Hotel Zone Area.
The next day, the same driver will pick you up at your hotel to your appointments. Yes, it’s also complementary. Actually, all your dental related transportation is free during your stay. You really don’t have to worry much about how to navigate locally in the area.
Upon arrival at the dental clinic in Cancun, you’ll be greeted by warm smiles and welcome handshakes. You will not go through an impersonal and rushed medical consultation, something we are all too familiar with as Americans. Rather, your dentist and their staff will want to get to know you on a personal level as well.
It’s likely that Dayo has given a detailed background of your case to your dentist in Cancun before your trip. Of course, as any good dentists, the staff will perform a thorough evaluation on your case before any recommendations are provided. The key to a successful dental work is planning.
Often, you’ll get a Panoramic X-ray (Yup, it’s the X-ray that doesn’t make you gag). For extensive oral surgery procedures such as multiple dental implants, you may need a CT Scan. I would be wary of seeing a dentist who doesn’t require you to get CT scan if you need several dental implants that require careful screening of your bone structure. The staff will take you to a dental imaging lab for the CT scan.
The dental clinic in Cancun takes precautions to ensure proper diagnosis and planning of your oral care. If you have a pertinent medical condition that may affect your treatment, the dental staff may take you to a doctor for a consultation and clearance on your dental work as extra precaution.
Finally, you’ll get a written treatment plan with the exact pricing, dental procedures, and recommendations from the dentist. Your dentist will take the time to explain the step by step process for each procedure. He will also give you options for extensive dental cases such as dentures secured with implants. You’ll get an opportunity to ask as many questions as you want to understand the step-by-step process.
At this point, the staff will take you back to your hotel to give you one more chance to ponder the recommendations and decide on the best option for your dental work. We choose dental partners who allow clients to be comfortable with their treatment plan, without any obligation or high pressure selling.
Of course, before you even travel, Dayo has already blocked the appointment times for the actual procedures based on preliminary X-ray evaluations with your Cancun dentist. For convenience, the timing and the dental appointments are set before you travel.
So yes, considering the world will not end tomorrow, this is what you would expect upon arrival for your Cancun dental vacation. It’s a relaxing and stress free experience. Many of Dayo’s dental tourism travelers to Cancun have been some of Dayo’s biggest fans and friends.
Live life to the fullest, and have an amazing day on 12/21.
