Why is Dental Tourism so Popular?

About half of U.S. adults say they have difficulty affording health care costs so many Americans forgo dental work. 

About 74 million Americans have no dental coverage—almost one-quarter, or 23%, of the population. Even those with coverage struggle to afford expensive procedures, especially when faced with an urgent, unplanned dental surgery, making it nearly impossible for the average American to afford dental care in the USA, which has the highest dental prices in the world.

The high demand for quality dental work and increasingly high prices in the USA motivates millions of Americans every year to seek quality, affordable dental care in other countries. 

About 70% of our patients are in Cuenca visiting and they go home with the smile of their dreams.

Is it Safe to get Dental Work in Ecuador?

Safety is understandably a big concern for those seeking dental treatment in Ecuador, especially if it involves oral surgery. After all, this particularly invasive form of treatment comes with a higher risk of infection. It’s worth remembering that complications can occur no matter where you go or how skilled your dentist is. With that said, precautions that can help minimize risk include:

  • Researching your dentist of choice’s accreditation, training, previous work, and reviews.
  • Making sure dental physicians follow standard hygiene practices, such as wearing protective gear like face masks and sterile gloves.

At Dr. Grace Ordoñez Dental Practice, we take infection prevention and control very seriously. We only offer procedures ad treatments that we fully trust will provide you with a truly healthy smile.  Our dental office is mercury safe, and we can even replace any traditional amalgam fillings you may have with more advanced materials through safe mercury removal.

Aside from the dental work itself, some are also concerned about general safety while in Ecuador. However, the country has put in a lot of work to become safer for visitors and expats.

Cuenca is home to many EXPATS due to its welcoming atmosphere, safety and beauty.
