A few decades ago, American visitors were among the first to get attention from a dentist in Tijuana, Baja, California, Mexico.
Towns Nogales and Tijuana were among the first places within the country’s border to host these international guests.
This entire process began when a few Americans living across the Tijuana-SanDiego border received suggestions from their Mexican relatives and acquaintances to visit a dentist in Tijuana.
Rumor had it that they could provide the excellent dental care everyone was looking for at a lesser cost.
Seniors in the border states of Texas, California, New Mexico, and Arizona began seeking the services of the same dentists in Tijuana across the border, and the practice grew in popularity.
This resulted in the discovery of cutting-edge dental and medical equipment in this area of Baja California and the subsequent dissemination of this newfound knowledge to fellow seniors and people.
Dental tourism was a common practice among Americans in the 1990s, and it later extended to other countries bordering Mexico.
The Impact of Dental Tourism in Tijuana
We had the honor of receiving David Perez Tejeda, the Sub-secretary of Tourism of Tijuana, Baja California, at our office today.
He recognized the huge role that the dental community plays in tourism and the city’s further development. And we couldn’t thank him enough.
Trust Dental Care joined the dental community in Tijuana a long time ago, and since then, we have witnessed how this industry has developed into something huge.
Not only have the services of Tijuana dentists to foreign patients played a crucial game in the economy, but they’ve also made thousands of smiles possible.
We are proud to be recognized by such an important figure and know that we are making a difference in the lives of our patients and this city that we love.
