Mexican vs. U. S. dentist.

Truly I was pleasantly surprised with my treatment today here in Acuna.I didn’t think it would quite measure up to what I had in Atlanta. I mean I wasn’t expecting rusty dental tools,decrepit equipment and a horse doctor,but I was prepared mentally for not quite up to par. SHOCK!

 It was awesome! Let me say first my dentist in Lawrenceville is awesome too. And I would recommend Dr. Earl McClendon  in a heartbeat. But Dr. Ponce here is just as great. His office is clean and attractive. The exam rooms are spotless and totally modern. He and his staff are friendly and professional. I had an extraction of a broken molar and it took like two minutes. Dr.Ponce has a calm demeanor and a great sense of humor,as does Dr. McClendon. 
  But the difference in cost is the big deal. I paid 500 pesos for the procedure which is about 30 USD!  And I received the same first rate treatment as I did in the states.

In a couple of weeks I go back to be fitted for upper and lower partials . Guess how much I’m going to save on that? A bunch! It’s 7500 pesos,375 USD! Just for the bottom in the states it was 1000 dollars!  

Lastly, I need two crowns in front for 5000 pesos,250 USD. So ,13,000 pesos total or 655 USD! 

To anyone here I highly recommend Dr. Ponce. I used his office on Morelos,right around the corner from house.

 To anyone in Lawrenceville,Georgia,or the surrounding area, I highly recommend Dr McClendon. He’s located on Lawrenceville Highway (29) between Snellville and Lawrenceville. He also has dental plans and will work with you. 

Finding the right dentist can be daunting, but God blesses me everywhere I go!
