Looking for a Cheap Dentist? Go to Mexico

From today's Washington Post, "Discount Dentistry, South of The Border":

Americans travel to Mexico for stomach surgery, eye exams and routine checkups. But it is the dentistas -- thousands of them strung along the border -- who are in the vanguard in attracting U.S. health consumers.

Mexican dentists often charge one-fifth to one-fourth of U.S. prices (see price list above from this website).

I had a previous related post about this Slate article.

Well as a long time border dweller I can tell you that the old saying, "you get what you pay for" was never more true in my own experience...
