Heidi - 27-Jun-2015

So far so good. The experience was as good, if not better, than most of my experiences in the United States. Very friendly, very clean, great prices, all appointments were seen on time. And they booked my hotel for me!

Lily - 24-Jun-2015

Overall the staff is very friendly and helpful. However appointments were almost always late. In one instance, we had an appointment for 2 pm. We arrived a few minutes early and booked in, then waited until 3:45 at which point I reminded them of the wait. I was then told the appointment was for 4 pm...I reminded them that I had written in my log the time of the appointment. We subsequently started at 4:20. There were other examples of waiting. A fellow patient told me, THE WAITING is the only complaint I have about Sani-Dental. We experienced a setback when Dr Luis Melendez had to leave for a conference in Mexico City necessitating a substitute doctor. No complaints about Dr. Guillermo, it was just that Lily had developed confidence in Dr. Luis and this change caused some anxiety for her. It appears to this point the work has been satisfactory. There was one other bump, the voucher for one free hotel night was not made available and this caused some confusion at the Hacienda. Overall, we would definitely recommend Sani-Dental to others.

James - 03-Jun-2015

This was the most professional, gently, pleasant dental experience I have had in years. All the staff were extremely cautious and concerned about my comfort, my understanding of the procedure(s) I was undergoing and the outcome I should expect.

Dora - 03-Jun-2015

Amazing service, the staff is very friendly and their prices are very reasonable. I'm definitely coming back. Oh! And the stay in the hacienda " Los algodones" hotel, was great, clean, friendly, they have a shuttle that takes you to your appointments and back to your hotel. They give you a discount on your stay if your a client. I love the fact that my truck was place in a safe place, locked over night. Their small restaurant downstairs is very cute and their food is good with great prices. coffee is available all day and they make the best pot of coffee I've ever tried in years. Overall experience. Excellent.

Wendy - 02-May-2015

My husband and I went to Sani Dental Group to have some work done that we couldn't afford to have done here. Between the two of us, we had 9 crowns, 3 bridges, one partial plate and a root canal as well as cleanings - all done in 4 days. The doctors are kind and caring and the quality of work is as good as we would have received at home. Our Canadian dentists have never suggested bridges for either of us - only ever implants and yet, bridges were the first thing that was offer - no mention of implants whatsoever, although there were quite a number people having implants done. We would not hesitate to recommend Sani. The dentists, assistants and staff go out of their way to make sure that you are well taken care of. Sometimes you wait a little longer than you would back home, but that said, I've been completely forgotten about at my Calgary dentist's office, so.... a little wait - not a big deal. Our total cost was about $4500 CDN compared to over $20,000 it would have cost to have the work done here. It's a no brainer for us - we'll be back!

Amazing experience. The staff was great. They were very focused and diligent with their work. A few hiccups in the process with lab returns but the staff made sure to make everything right. I was very impressed. Their entire set up allows you to get major work done in minimal time by experienced doctors.

Dr Javier and his assistant Nina for the phase 1 work done in December. Dr Xochipilli for her long hours of implant work done in December. Dr Jose Manuel Jimenez and his assistant Sergio for the phase 2 zirconium work done now in June. My wife is very happy with the end result. Virginia, Diana, Cindy, Lisette, and Francesco at the front desk, for their help with translations during dental procedures, and for their friendly help at the front desk. Jose and Carlos for their friendly words at the front door. No issue is too big for them to handle. Also: Dr Esteban and Dr Berenice for their patiently digging out my old silver amalgam fillings, and replacing them with good old plain white fillings. Their assistant Miguel for his help in the follow-ups, and all the translated questions/answers. I am finally amalgam-free :-) Sani Dental : We view them as a group of very capable dentists and above all, understanding and helpful people. We would come back here in a heartbeat. Thank you guys !!!

Deborah - 16-Jul-2013

I had a lot of work done in a very short period of time. My crowns turned out beautiful. I am very happy with the finished product. When I look in the mirror I just laugh because I can not believe these are my teeth. The dentist worked very hard to make them perfect and he did not stop until they were. I only have 4 teeth in my mouth that had nothing done to them, when those crowns need to be replaced I will absolutely be back. I have already told many people about this dental clinic. Thank you to everyone who took care of me.

Barry Bilicki - 09-Apr-2013

I went down to Mexico to have some work done on my teeth not knowing how things would turn out. A friend went down and had a crown put on and she convinced me to give it a try as I needed alot of work. I checked all the dental reviews and choose Sani. I am so happy with the work. I wish I had know about this before I would have gone down there long ago. I had Doctor Jose and he did all the work on the 14 crowns and inplant I had done. No pain he explaned all that was going on as he was doing the procedure. The clinic was clean and they even had better equipoment then my local dentist. After the crowns were put on they look great and with the time Doc Jose putting into make the bite just right they feel natural. I will be telling everyone I meet about the great work done. A full set of teeth again after 40 years I so happy. The only drawback was the waiting but with so many people in the clinic it is understandable. Everyone I met were friendly and went out of there way to make me feel comfortable. I will be going back in Sept to have the crown for the inplant placed and will be staying at the clinic hotel which is comfortable and clean wish I had known about it on the first trip down. Once again thanks to Sani I have my smile back and I so happy

Linda Holt - 02-Apr-2013

I recently had six crowns done by Dr. Esteban. There was a mix up in the original appointment I booked on-line, but was able to come back later in the day. I am happy with the work done and will be back. The work is done quickly with as few appointments as needed, and the staff are professional. Linda

David - 02-Apr-2013

The "doctor" was Dr. Claudia and she did an extremely unsatisfactory job!! She did not fit me correctly, took way too long, Hit my teeth with the drill three times and one time when she attempted to take the drill out of my mouth, she hit my right front tooth so hard with the drill, I was actually stunned. Because of this, I have had a strange sensation on that tooth and I believe I will eventually lose it. It's very very disheartening when I come to get teeth fixed and they actually cause much more difficulty. I am in the public eye all the time with my profession and losing the front tooth will be devastating. The dentist I had was a "fill in" dentist and they told me she had all this great experience for 15 years. I believe she just got out of dental school and she tried her "skills" out on me. She was very very inept. I am going back again with a dentist who has actually been practicing many years and knows what he is doing. They need to correct the problems. The bridge she put in is so bulky that I bite my back gum and cheek every day. Thank you for reading this evaluation. I like Felix when I talk with him by phone, and I think he will make things right. Thank you. David Kobielush ALSO, Claudia didn't know more than a very few words in English, which made it hard.

Frank B. Bishop - 30-Mar-2013

When I first heard about Dental Services offered in Los Algodones, Mexico, I had my concerns. Not anymore! Sani Dental performed up to the highest of my expectations. I had 28 crowns installed; and I couldn't be happier. Jose Jiminez was my dentist. He completed the work in 4 sessions and his work was top quality. My appraisal is hygiene, A+ skill, great knowledge. superior perfection, perfect quality of crowns, perfect bite = superior plus. Sani Dental Group saved me over $23,500.00. I couldn't be more pleased!!

Oliver Johnson - 30-Mar-2013

Thank you Dr Linzay and Ricardo for your professionalism and expertise. I appreciate your gentle manner and also the fact that perfection is the only acceptable result. I will not hesitate to return to your clinic if further dental work is necessary. Also if someone asks where to get their dental work done I will certainly recommend you and your clinic.

Carmen Amaya - 16-Mar-2013

I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience with Sani ! I traveled here as a young single women and everyone made sure I was well taken care of. I have sensitive teeth and they were slow and patient; gentle and kind. I would have spent 20,000 for the same treatment in the US. I spent 1/4 of the cost including hotel and travel. Yes, you may have to wait but bring your favorite books and be ready to make lots of friends. You wait because they take their time and treat everyone with extra special care. They will not rush or cut corners. The results I look like a movie star and I have a whole mouth full of healthy comfortable, beautiful teeth ! I recommend Sani to everyone will be bringing my mom and husband next year!

Michael Jaworski - 21-Feb-2013

i can't believe the amount of work i had done in such a short amount of time. i hope the quality of the work will speak for itself. time will tell !!! the cost for all the work was quite acceptable. all staff members that i dealt with were friendly, very accommodating and very professional. i had a follow-up appointment for some minor adjustments on february 14th at 11:00 a.m., and i didn't get in until 1:00 p.m. thats the only negative thing that i could say. Otherwise, i would do it again and will definitely recommend SANI DENTAL to others.

Bruce Anthony - 15-Feb-2013

First time using a dentist in Mexico. I did extensive research both talking to people that have used Sani Dental and on the computer. Although all feed back was positive, I still wasn't convinced so I made a trip to Algodones to see for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many Americans and Canadians sitting in the waiting room. Some people have been coming back for years and not one negative remark. I was still uncomfortable at first until Dr. Esteban started working on me. He was professional and did great work. Everyone at Sani Dental was very friendly and caring. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sani Dental Group to my family and friends. Matter of fact I already have.

Carl Chase, , Maui - 25-Oct-2010

You could search the entire world and not find a better more professional place to have your dental work done. I enjoyed the entire health/vacation immensely. And in 3 days completed work that would have cost me over $25,000 in Hawaii & paid only $4,500 at Sani, Incredable, Thanks so much!
