What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Is It Worth It To Travel Abroad For Low Cost Endodontics?

Dental tourism bites! Everyone loves a vacation. While some people might like cruises to Alaska or skating across the frozen fjords of Finland, many people vastly prefer a simpler set up: sun, sand, and a cold drink in hand. Some agencies make a tropical vacation combined with cheap dental care look like a day of fun in the sun. They advertise anything from cheap orthodontics to low cost endodontics. Many people actually do travel abroad to get access to low cost endodontics. ‘Dental tourism’, as it has been often called, is actually a large source of revenue for some countries, and a big pain in the tooth for many Americans.

The Disadvantages of Dental Tourism RDH recently put out an article on the risks of dental tourism, citing the following reasons: It can be dangerous to health. Many Americans travel to 3rd-World countries like Mexico to get their dental work done. In Los Algodones, Mexico, 90% of dental patients are Americans! These Americans put themselves at risk of developing any number of the following diseases: Hepatitis A Hepatitis B Hepatitis C Typhoid fever (with a mortality rate of…
