I had been experiencing mouth pain for nearly two years, and finally felt financially stable enough to address the issue. I visited 2 offices in Scottsdale, AZ and was quoted nearly $6k for 2 root canals and 2 crowns. I felt like I would have to live with the pain forever. A friend of mine recommended the website MEDIGO- he explained that it is an International healthcare site that helps you find affordable care, just across the border. I first emailed then shortly thereafter received a call from Melvin at Medigo. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and worked quickly as he knew I was in pain. We had heard about Sani Dental through some other friends here in AZ, and Melvin couldn't recommend them higher! He called the very next day and said they could get me in, in 4 hours. Lucky for us we only live 3 hours from Los Algodones, so we hopped in the car and headed South. The location was very easy to find once you crossed the border, Melvin provided us with a simple map to help us get there. We found a nice, underground, parking lot next door to the office for only $2/day. The office was very clean, the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. They took the panoramic X-ray ($60) and I had my first consultation with Dr. Mikel. He agreed I needed two root canals ($180 each), two posts ($80 each), and two crowns ($450 each) and within 45 minutes I was in the chair being introduced to Dr. Alejandro and his assistant. The process was 100% pain free and Dr. Alejandro made sure of that. They even let my husband sit in the room with me for comfort. The 2 root canals took about 5 hours, but when I left I finally felt better. Sani Dental owns a hotel down the street and if you are getting a certain amount of dental work done they comp you a room! We set up the appt for the temporary crowns and headed to the Hacienda. The next day I went in to the other office and met Dr. Gustavo and his assistant Albert. They were so wonderful, young, fun, and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Gustavo has to be one of the most gentle dentists I have ever met! They took a mold of my mouth and gave me temporary crowns. Typically they prefer that you stay 3 nights in a row to get the work done as quickly as possible, but we had to get back to Scottsdale for work, so we scheduled the crown fitting and install for the next weekend. We went back the next Friday and I was so glad to see Dr. Gustavo again, I was worried they would switch dentists on me, but nope! We stayed one more night at the Hacienda and the following day I got my permanent crowns, and a cleaning ($30), and we were on our way. The entire experience was amazing. International health care made me a bit nervous, but now I'm telling everyone to go to Sani Dental! The best overall part of the experience was saving $4500 by traveling 3 short hours to Mexico.
Communication with non English speaking dentists was somewhat frustrating.

Be prepared to WAIT.
A very positive note: As a patient you always know how much you are going to be charged for
The Clinic is really easy to reach - with an underground car park in case you want to drive across the border. The clinic equipment are maybe not the latest gadgets, but clearly up to the task. Important things like surround xray is used. I had crowns done, root canal and an implant. There is a doctor for each task so you spend time going from one treatment room to the next. Seeing different doctors. Not a bad thing, however I was surprised that some of the doctors didn't speak English. A very positive note: As a patient you always know how much you are going to be charged for. There is no surprise. So far so good - I have to go back to complete the process. Ohh and I stayed in the local Hacienda Hotel. The clinic has a contract with them. Do not expect too much, if you are picky then book a hotel across the border in Yuma.
An excellent experience overall
