People often wonder what medicine would be like if the government and third party insurances weren’t so heavily involved. There already is a grassroots movement among some physicians to return their practices to those “good old days.” I am in favor of doing the same but I feel the need to drag my three partners with me, and that will take some work.
Recently, a patient of mine went to Mexico to have her dental work completed. She had a couple of estimates done here in the United States and they approximated $25,000. Then she heard of dental services provided just across the border south of Arizona. She couldn’t have been happier.
She told me that the small town of approximately 4000 apparentlyÂ had over 400 dentists who did most of their work for Americans and Canadians. She had all her dental work completed for $3000. WOW! And she said the facilities were second to none in professional and service qualities. They even spoke English. Although I am not a dentist, I would say that her teeth looked fabulous.
Patients need to just start saying no to insurance options, malpractice insurance carriers,Â and politicians who feel that governmental regulation is a good thing. These have made the costs of practicing medicine skyrocket over the last 35 years. And if you need a dentist, give me a call (email). I know a good dentist in Mexico.
