For the last 30 years, there has been an ever increasing flow of US dental patients heading south of the border for dental tourism. In fact, Mexico has become the top destination for dental tourism in the world. For dental tourism in Mexico, the most visited city, bar none, is Tijuana. Dentists in Tijuana have gained a great reputation for being the best dentists in Mexico.
This is because of several factors. First, because of the close proximity and easy access for the 25 million inhabitants of southern California, it just makes sense to make dentists in Tijuana their first choice for dental tourism. The huge flow of dental tourism patients has drawn some of the best dentists in Mexico to establish their dental practices in Tijuana.
Another effect is, there is such a high demand for dentists in Tijuana, one of the top dental universities in Mexico, UABC, was established in Tijuana to offer top quality training for Tijuana dentists. Also, the tourism industry in general, including top quality hotels, and great restaurants has become highly evolved. In other words, all the factors needed to create a culture conducive to dental tourism are in place in Tijuana, Mexico.
This has drawn even more people, not just from southern California, but from all over the US, and Canada, to Tijuana for dental tourism in Mexico. Today, Tijuana is certainly the top destination in Mexico for dental tourism, and in fact is the top destination in the world for dental tourism patients.
