I traveled to Cancun Mexico as a dental tourist to have old veneers replaced. What a terrible misguided naive mistake it was. I found a dentist over the internet that seemed more than capable of preforming such a task. His website had allot of things you would look for like a licensed dentist, accredited, ADA, ACCD, and MTA logos. And of course the internet supplied good reviews.
Long story short the dentist prepped my teeth for crowns not veneers as asked. He shaved and drilled every tooth over the biological margins. X Ray shows drill marks in bone above some of the teeth he over worked. He also left plastic particles embedded in my gum and caused a terrible infection. I traveled back home to be immediately seen by a local dentist who then sent me to a oral surgeon. I had to have extensive crown lengthening surgery on seven out of the nine teeth. Gum replacement surgery, and three root canals and replace all the terrible huge white crowns. Two teeth could not be saved because of the over prepping by the cancun cosmetic dentist in Mexico. I will now need bone grafting and implants to solve that problem.
I really put my trust in this dentist an have since realized he was so very undeserving of it and any one else's for that matter. I am now certain that the majority of those glowing reviews were fake. He is not accredited and the logos on his website are there because he has paid a basic membership fee to display them which I believe he is doing to make himself look more legitimate. I guess you can say I was fooled by some pretty spiffy advertisements and a sweet taking patient management team. I feel very violated and deceived. To make things worse I know it was all because he wanted my dental tourism dollars.
I paid him over seven thousand dollars and that is all I will ever be to him a foreign dollar sign . The clinic/dentist never apologized, and did not refund the money. They only sent me threats if I came forward with my story. In the end he did destroy my teeth and to date has cost me thirty thousand dollars but he can never silence me or bully me. Our change who God intended me to be. Thank you reading about my experience. I hope my story helps others.
