If you feel worried about everything you hear about the coronavirus and also for your dental appointments in Mexico, we provide you with all the information you should know about your current or future dental appointments in the country over the coronavirus contingency.
First of all, it is important to mention that the authorities in Mexico are continuously working on contingency strategies, and until now two of the most popular Mexican destinations in dental tourism: Cancun and Los Cabos, are the ones with the fewest cases in the country (Cancun has 28 and Los Cabos just eight), it keeps the dental tourism sector very optimistic and some clinics are still working, bringing important support in dental emergencies during this time.
That said, if you have any doubts about what to do because you already had an appointment scheduled at any of the specialized dental tourism facilities in Mexico, or you were on the process, the following information is for you.
If you already had your appointment scheduled
In case you already have your appointment scheduled and the protocols of your country do not allow you to travel, call your clinic and change the date, do not cancel it! Main of the clinics will keep their affordable prices in all their dental services, in addition, the vast majority of airlines and hotels provide all the facilities to do changes without additional fees.
About your stay some facilities could help you with your accommodation and even provide free transportation from the airport, as well as for all your appointments.
You are dreaming about your new smile but don’t know what to do with your travel arrangements
Be patient, you can still have the smile of your dreams! This period can be a great opportunity to learn more about the procedure you will receive and above all, how to prepare for it. There are pages where you can discover complete information about your treatment and how you should prepare before, during and after it. On the other hand you will enjoy the very cheap rates that both airlines and hotels will offer to reactivate the economy in that sector.
It is important to highlight that during this contingency, Mexican dental clinics have increased disinfection and sterilization protocols in each of their areas, following the recommendations issued by the ADA and ADM.
We want also to remind you about main hygiene measures you must follow to take care of your health during this pandemic:
-Clean and disinfect all surfaces and spaces in your home.
-Wash your hands with soap and water constantly.
-If you have to leave your house for any reason, at your back immediately change your
clothes and put them in the washing machine.
-Avoid as much contact as possible with other people.
-Use masks, especially if you suspect you have the virus.
-If you cough or sneeze, do it pointing towards the elbows and always laterally.
