I can pull those for you Stewart!Interesting. I'm actually about to go through something similar and had considered Mexico as an option. However, felt more comfortable with the local folks I know here in AZ that do stellar work.
That X ray kind of tells the whole story, doesn't look good and just reinforces my decision. Cheaper is not always better.
Not pointing a finger at Dr. Angela Acuna or anything. I'm sure she has plenty of satisfied customers as well. Kinda depends on what you're having done. In my case, losing upper back molars because of repeated infection and pain, bone graft, and implants. Just not something I wanted to travel to Penasco and have done for the sake of saving some money.
Well, thanks for the offer, Jerry! They came out yesterday and the bone graft done. Today, I'm just feeling a bit raw and sore. Back two upper left. I had been thinking I was getting sinus infections and would take amoxicillin and be okay after a couple of days. Painless (my dentist) told me it wasn't sinus, that it was some abscesses going on at the roots of those two molars. He was right, I was wrong, but the two are so close together it's a common mistake.I can pull those for you Stewart!
You usually get what you pay for.Not to belittle anyone's experience or complaint but I don't think the Dentists or Doctors in Mexico have a monopoly on complaints about their work. The courts in the US are stuffed to the gills with medical malparactic lawsuits. I personally have had pretty darn good treatment in the ER rooms in Mexico.
I find it interesting that people would spend that much money on buying another car that they don't need but well cheap out on their medical needs.Recently our American dentist, whom we respect and trust, quoted us $21,500 for four much needed implants for my lower jaw

Old Mexican say: Quien no tranza no avanza! There is no honor, respect, and reputation anymore in Mexico.Given the above, we have asked Dr. Romo four times for a partial refund. Our first two emails were answered with an insistence we return for further work. Not likely. The third and fourth have not been answered at all.
Come on..the big dental office along the border are up to US standards.Six months ago I had a rear molar pulled at a high tech Tucson shop.I came back and the new contract dentist ( a thing now in big offices) showed me the X-ray from the pulled tooth and schedule me for pulling the perfectly good one on the other side....that would have hurt!I find it interesting that people would spend that much money on buying another car that they don't need but well cheap out on their medical needs.
You eat with your teeth, they are in your head, you need teeth and don't need luxury items. At the end of the day you wouldn't have saved that much money anyway.

After several emails to Dr Acuna explaining the issue and requesting at least a partial refund, she finally replied that my husband should return to Rocky Smiles and they would make him a denture. He explained again that he had, at great pain and expense, had to have the hardware removed and was not coming back for a denture. A man named David, who said he was her husband, called once to see if he could make a deal so we would stop posting on line. He was supposed to talk to Dr. Acuna and call back but did not. Subsequent calls and emails, both to him and Dr. Acuna, have been ignored.Whoa...that is way to messed up to even joke about...She needs to make that right or we all should share on Facebook
