I was a little hesitant to have dental work done in Mexico and my friends called me crazy but a 2 weeks before I was to be in Cancun I broke a tooth and needed a crown. I had remembered talking to a lady on a plane bond for Mexico, a year earlier, who said her and her husband use dental services in Mexico all the time. I starting researching online and looked at reviews and finally contacted Ocean Dental Cancun. They responded immediately. They answered all my questions and quoted me prices for what I requested and also quoted prices if I needed more done. I had thought I only needed a crown but end up needing a crown and a root canal. Not a surprise since my US dentist said that could happen. There were no hidden costs. Everyone was professional. Everything was sterile and clean, a big factor for me. They picked me up from my hotel, even though I was 40 mins away and brought me back to the hotel. I would use their services again and again but hoping I don’t need to.
I really liked the service, and the team work. All the staff was great. I recommend them for you too. They are very professional & efficient. For sure i will be back to always do my dental work there. Thank you ….
The idea of traveling to Cancun for dental work, was not remotely close on my list of dental options. My dental visits in Florida were the standard stuff, but the real need (implants) was seldom addressed because the price quoted was — a very nice condo. Searching the internet for dental services across bordering States (Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama) I ran across an ad for “Dental Departures.” I made contact and was introduced to the Ocean Dental coordinating person. I remained hesitant … even though the cost was significantly lower and more affordable. Nevertheless, cautiously proceeded, and made all the arrangements; sent xrays and established communications (email and telephone) with the coordinator. It was the willingness of Ocean Dental coordinator to answer my questions openly that altered (not changed) the hesitancy through this channel of communications. I started researching some of the reviews of those who had dental services performed there and moved closer to making a decision. My decision was ultimately made because of the demonstrated caring through something as simple as the detailed arrangement for my arrival. Anyone who cared enough to ensure that my getting from the airport to the hotel, and pickup from the hotel to appointments, must also be genuinely caring professionals. That assessment turned out to be accurate and I am a completely happy patient. Ocean Dental staff is more that dental professionals, but people committed to excellence; they function like a family and that makes the difference. Sitting in the waiting room watching the interactions between patients to patients and staff and patients convey the idea that it is not just a business, but a people’s business. That is what Ocean Dental represents. My genuine pleasure to write this review.
In June 2016 I went to Ocean Dental Cancun to get a lot of major dental work done. It has been a good experience so far. The office is very organized, friendly personal,equipped with new high tech equipment, and most important very knowledgeable stuff under supervision Dr. Irma Gavaldon. They worked together and consulted with each to ensure they determine the best treatment plan for me especially given the short time frame of my trip. I am hoping to be just as pleased and impressed when I go back later in the year to complete the remainder of my treatment.
Like many first timers to the idea of travelling to Mexico for dental work I was nervous, skeptical, and worried that I was making a huge mistake. It is now two weeks since my first appointment, I’m back home in the states and all I can say is “THANK GOD I DID IT!” This was the single most positive dental experience I have ever had! I needed a bridge replaced (the original one put in by an American dentist fell apart after 7 years) and in the end I needed a root canal on one of the teeth. The cost here in the states was quoted to me at around $6100. My final bill, which I paid happily, was $1575. Now, I was in a pickle as I had a broken bridge so getting it fixed was a must do. The difference between what I would have paid, sitting on the couch in my apartment pissed off at the outrageous cost of US dental work and what I actually paid in Cancun covered not only the flight from Seattle but 7 days at a luxury all-inclusive resort for my whole family. We had a great time and I will never forget the super nice people I met at CDS. Thank you! I will be back!
I had my first visit January 2016 and after the implants healed I had the rest of the work completed in May 2016. This is my second review. I wanted to follow up with a more detailed report and express my gratitude to Dr. Irma Gavaldon, Ocean Dental and the entire staff of Cancun Dental Specialists. It’s been years since I’ve been able to chew food without being in pain either from a bad tooth or biting my cheeks or tongue. The biting of the cheeks or tongue is something that’s been an everyday, multiple times per day occurrence ever since I can remember. Since my work has been completed and my bite has been corrected I haven’t bitten cheeks or tongue a single time; not once. That alone is such a relief. In total, I had 2 extractions, 4 implants, 2 root canals, 2 bone grafts and 18 crowns placed. The chewing teeth are zirconium and the front teeth are Emax porcelain. The team at Cancun Dental Specialists did an outstanding job and I couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out. I can eat with confidence, they look like real teeth and have never felt or looked better. Period. I was there 10 days each visit and now I’m done. It’s worth noting that they provide transportation from and back to the airport and for all the dental appointments FREE of charge. Everyone there has an area of specialty and they all work together as a team. The atmosphere is so friendly, welcoming and professional; from the office to the drivers to the front desk to the gifted dental staff. If I had this done in the US it would have cost $40,000 where I live. $40,000 was simply out of reach for me. At Cancun Dental Specialists I paid just over $12,000 for a savings of 70%. You will love Cancun. It is PARADISE!! Thank you Dr. Irma Gavaldon and your wonderful team at Cancun Dental Specialists. You have made my life better.

We had a very positive experience at Cancun dental specialist! Everyone was very nice and inviting to us. We felt safe and the dental work that was done looks great, we also saved thousands of dollars versus getting the work done in the states. We will be back! Thank you 🙂
Hola buenas tardes, les quería comentar que hace unos días atrás en mayo estuve en Cancún, y lamentablemente, hubiese querido realmente no tener que recurrir a ningún centro médico, puedo decir que desde el primero hasta el último nos atendieron de 10 !!, desde la secretaria hasta la supervisora, comentario a parte del Dr Guillermo y su ayudante, la verdad que fui con mucho dolor y muchos nervios, por no estar en mi país y con todo lo que eso significa, pero el Dr de un principio me hizo sentir cómodo, y la verdad que tanto profesional como personalmente es un genio. Se movieron rápidamente para contactar con mi seguro al viajero, para aprobarme el tratamiento. Me llevo un mal recuerdo (por dolor en mis tan deseadas vacaciones) y muy bueno por haber tenido la suerte de que me atienda Guillermo saludos. Nicolas.
Irma and her staff were very professional in the way they presented treatment options and in the way they executed the plan we proceeded with. The clinic was immaculate and probably cleaner than most practices in the states. I would recommend her and her clinic to anyone interested in quality dentistry at a very affordable price, made even better since the work was combined with a relaxing holiday. I had five zirconium crowns done with no discomfort at all. Thanks to you and your staff Irma! Brian
I’m a HUGE fan of Ocean Dental!!! High, high standards, extremely professional staff, and great care. Two trips, and five visits later, I love telling friends that my dentist is in Cancun, and then flashing them the beautiful smile that Dr. Gavaldon and the staff made possible.

This was my third visit to Ocean Dental. I have had an implant, root canal, extraction, cleaning, and check up. the dental equipment was extremely modern, like none I’ve seen in Canada. There are even spa lights on the ceiling above your dental chair to ease anxiety.. The staff are amazing, very professional and friendly. It is a happy atmosphere. My dental work is beautiful, I am so pleased with my smile. The first time I visited Ocean dental, I came from Canada as a lone female. I stayed in cancun ( the dental office will assist you with accommodations if necessary). I felt safe and secure. The drivers are always on time to pick you up from your hotel, and take you back. They also provide airport transportation. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ocean dental. On top of it all, I was able to have my dental work done, stay in beautiful cancun for less than I would pay for just the dental work alone in Canada. Thank you to all the staff, see you in November.
I want to say how pleased my husband and I were to have our dental treatment at Ocean Dental in Cancun Mexico. Everyone was so wonderful to us. Maggi was our co-ordinator and she answered all my questions about going to Mexico for treatment. From the moment we walked in to the clinic I felt at ease, knowing we had made the right decision. The office is just beautiful and clean and professional. The staff was friendly and we were so happy to be there. There is so much we can say about our experiences there . The most important is how quickly every thing was done and how happy we were with being there. We had so much done in just a few days that would have taken months here in the United states. In the waiting room I heard a few complaints of how “their appointment had been pushed back and they had been waiting an hour or so.” Well I say, ‘remember you chose Mexico for a reason. It saves you money and you get more done in a few days than in 6 months or more at home. So be patient. Be kind and remember they are working very hard to have you ready to leave and catch your plane home .’ Everyone was wonderful to us and in all my life of having dental work, I have never seen dentist work so hard or so long hours to please their patients. From the drivers that picked us up from the airport on arrival, and for every appointment we had till the day we left to go home, everyone was wonderful. I never thought I would ever say I was sad to leave my dentist office. I will be glad to talk with anyone that wants to hear more about our time there and what we had done, and I will be going back in September to finish my treatment. My husband will also be glad to tell about his treatments, as well. He was skeptical at first, and was just totally impressed with what they did for him in two days. Thank you everyone at Ocean Dental for everything you did for us. You are awesome!
I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Dr Irma and her highly trained staff. The level of care and facilities are outstanding. I had to veneers, a bone graft and two implants placed in 2 days. They were fast efficient and never compromised quality or care. When you leave you want to give everyone a hug because they’ve made you feel like your part of their family. Enjoy a beautiful Cancun vacation with the money you save. I look forward to returning in 6 months and seeing my new friends and finishing my work. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
I want to thank Ocean Dental for the great services I had received last week.After seeing several dentists in Calgary Ab. I found out I needed 26 extractions and dentures .Then the real shock, $10,000.00 + dollars. I had a friend say go to Cancun Mexico. I started looking into this and after many hours of research I had decided on Ocean Dental. But still being nervous I had to decided to have my dentures done at home which in retrospect was a bad idea (not in a bad way my Denturist is fantastic and did a great job, as I wanted to make sure I had after care at home) To make a long story short after a few days enjoying Cancun my appointment day was coming up and I was scared/nervous if I had made the right decision. After their driver picked me up from my hotel and brought me to their office I encountered a waiting room of Canadians and Americans who either were starting their procedures or just ending them. After talking to many of them all my stress went out of the window from what they told me. I remember talking to a women who lived 45 minutes from home that had implants done and was just getting her new teeth put in and let me tell you they were fantastic. My turn in. All the equipment was modern clean just like my local dentist even better I thought , very professional staff completed my procedure I felt great they explained to me what I needed to do as if I were at home drove me back to my hotel. I tend to be long winded but I am already booking my next trip for implants and probably saving $25,000 + dollars and knowing that the work I will receive be top quality. Again thank you very much for all your work and look forward to see you in the next few months. Great job!!!
I am in Cancun now having treatment, and so far everything is as good as a trip the dentist can be. My shuttle provided by Ocean Dental from the airport was on time, and one of their drivers has collected me from the hotel to take me to to surgery each time and delivered me back to the hotel afterwards. The dental office found my keys and kept them safe for me when I misplaced the on a surgery visit – excellent service. My treatment here is to remove one infected molar and one sideways-growing molar, add implants in the top of my mouth to give me better bite. I had 2 extractions, 2 bone grafts and one implant base done yesterday, and feel 90% back to normal today. I’m back at the surgery tomorrow so they can check their work. I will need either 1 or 2 more visits to complete the work. I don’t speak any Spanish, but there are enough English speakers at the surgery that I always feel I can make myself understood. The waiting room at the surgery has been very busy, sometimes more people than chairs, but I think I would be more worried if it was empty! Speaking to others in the waiting room, many of whom are repeat patients or have been personally referred by other patients, gives you a sence of confidence in the business. It’s inconvenient being away from family and work, but Cancun is a nice place, and dentist prices are half that of Orlando.
I wanted to have an implant rather than the bridge my dentist suggested. The problem was a bone defect that required an oral surgeon and I could not afford the quoted fee. I chose Cancun due to it being so close to South Florida where I live and the price quoted for having this procedure done there. I am so very glad I went there.The facility is state of the art, the staff is very professional and pleasant. I have to return in May or June for the abutment and crowns. The amount I shall save on the abutment alone will pay for the flight. My wife shall be returning with me. She, too, needs dental work. The more dental work a person requires the greater will be their percentage of savings. Get your best quote from your local dentist and give them a call. I believe you shall be in for a surprise. There is no reason for a person to lose their teeth if they can afford a small percentage of what the fee would be at home. When you get there say hello for me to Maggi and Drs. Irma and Omar
I’m extremely happy with the great services. The entire office is full of professionals from the beginning to the end. My crown had never felt and looked so amazing. I recommend 110%.
I had an amazing experience when I visit the clinic to get removed all of my wisdom teeth a month ago and seriously, I can not be more delighted with all the work that the people from the clinic and specially Dr. Omar Lugo and his assistant did. Even though I was really nervous and one of the teeth was really close to the nerve, everything went by very smoothly because of the high efficiency of everybody. You can feel that it is a very organized place and they know for sure what they are doing. I’m really happy with my results and with the empathy of everybody.
I just wanted to say a few kind words about the wonderful team at Cancun Dental Specialists. I spent 10 days in January 2016 getting the first half of my much needed dental work done. I will hopefully go back at the end of May to finish. So far, I’ve had a root canal which was painless; 2 extractions and 4 implants placed. This would be completely out of my financial reach in the states. Also, no dentist here in the states will come to my home, pick me up for my appointments then drive me back home when I’m done. In January, when the northeast corner of the US is dark and cold, Cancun is a warm and sunny paradise. I can’t wait to come back and have my 19 crowns placed and give an even better review! Thank you 🙂
The clinic was really helpful when I had to have an emergency root canal whilst I was travelling in Mexico. They explained everything to me and even gave me a more bugetted treatment to help me save money. They were all super friendly and I would recommend them 100%.
