I write this letter in hopes of dispelling the myth of substandard medical care in foreign countries. I would encourage anyone to consider a “Dental Vacation” to Guatemala. The cost savings in dental work will pay for a vacation of a lifetime. I had extensive dental work done and now enjoy being pain-free and have a healthy mouth once again.
I originally found out about Dr. De la Cruz from two men that I had met in Antigua Guatemala. Each had had extensive dental work performed by him, and they each recommended him to me as a really good dentist, that was also a fluent English speaker. “He's the man to see”, as they put it. I was impressed by the modernity of his office, his professional style and ease of communication.
I sure was surprised. When all work had been completed, I compared Dr. de la Cruz' cost for similar procedures “back home”. The difference was impressive - less than half the typical California prices. I could easily have paid for my trip to Guatemala with the difference, and still come home financially ahead. And, more importantly, I believe the service and skill I experienced with Dr. de la Cruz was considerably better.

Whether you want cosmetic dentistry or teeth whitening for instance, you might have to dig deep into your pocket or wait for months before receiving the dental care that you require and deserve.
Medical Tourism is not a new phenomenon, but it is taking on a completely different persona to what was earlier envisaged.

Guion and Harwell work for HSM, a furniture and auto parts manufacturer in western North Carolina. The company gave Guion a choice for this surgery: Pay a co-pay in the U.S. or outsource the procedure abroad for free. "Nothing out of my pocket," Guion said.. She and Harwell are among a growing wave of Americans frustrated by the rising costs of the U.S. health care system and heading abroad for medical procedures. Nearly one million Americans go overseas for procedures every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
... Once only something done by the incredibly wealthy, medical tourism is "really turning into something people understand," said Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders, which produces guidebooks on medical travel. The organization estimates that in 2012, 600,000 people will travel abroad for treatment -- a number anticipated to grow 15 to 20 percent annually as boomers age....
