Top-Notch Holistic Dentistry Just Across the Border

The team at BioDental Care in Tijuana, B.C., Mexico, enjoys offering top-notch semi-holistic dental care to their patients in Mexico and the U.S. “This means that while we practice traditional dentistry, we’re also able to follow the Huggins-Grube protocol and offer a more holistic, conservative approach to treating our patients,” shares BioDental Care’s Administrative Director, Alex Ruiz.

         In addition to traditional dentistry, this mercury-free practice offers ozone therapy and other cutting-edge holistic treatments. “We also don’t use any metals in our dental restorations other than titanium for dental implants, which we prefer because titanium is absolutely inert in the human body. It is non-magnetic and immune to attack from bodily fluids. Titanium is also compatible with bone growth. It’s strong, yet flexible, and is the most biocompatible of all metals,” explains Ruiz. “That said, for patients who are still not convinced about having titanium implants, we also have the option of having non-metal Zirconia implants placed as a metal-free alternative to titanium.”  

         Another plus to this dentistry practice is the cost. “We offer quality biocompatible procedures and materials at a fraction of the cost of holistic dental practices just across the border,” says Patient Advisor, Antonio Lucio, who adds that the staff at BioDental Care also pride themselves on going above and beyond when it comes to taking care of their patients.

         When calls come in, Lucio is each patient’s first point of contact. “After taking the time to get to know you, including your medical history and dental needs, I can give you an overall idea of how Biodental Care can help,” says this passionate customer care coordinator, who affirms that ensuring each patient is well-informed and comfortable with their treatment plan is of the utmost importance. “We take a very holistic view of our patients and know that many of them, especially those with dental anxiety, will have plenty of questions. Before they even get in the chair, we take the time to let them know the ins and outs of what their options are.”

         And speaking of dental anxiety, Lucio shares that this top-notch facility creates a soothing, welcoming atmosphere, complete with mellow music and aromatherapy, to help their patients stay calm. “We do whatever we can to help each of our patients relax. We have a protocol that addresses every single area of your concern. By the time you come in for your treatment, you’ll know you are in good hands and with a treatment plan tailored just for you and your unique needs.”

       The team at BioDental Care feels it’s important to have a holistic view of each patient. “To us, the importance of practicing biological dentistry lies in understanding that each patient is unique in their needs and that potential health harms and benefits differ from one patient to another. A treatment that might work just fine for you might not work for someone else. That’s why a biological or holistic way of approaching a patient’s dental treatment plan is so important; it’s not just about treating the patient’s teeth, but about improving their overall well-being,” explains Ruiz. “Personally, what I like the most from our team is the harmony we have collaborating with one another. Our team understands that we each have a role to play in the patient’s care and attention, and we are fully committed to ensuring that their experience at BioDental Care is pleasant and memorable.”

         Ruiz adds that his favorite part of working at BioDental Care is when a patient leaves their office thrilled to see their new smile in the mirror, or excited that they can chew properly and have a decent meal. “Nothing makes me happier than hearing their words of gratitude for helping them regain their dental health, smile and confidence,” he says. “Our goal is to meet or exceed their expectations.”

         Lucio agrees. That is why they also offer transportation from the U.S. side of the border and drive each patient back to the border so they can walk back to the U.S. after their appointment. “If a patient just had major dental surgery, we’ll make sure they are driven back across the border,” he says, adding that many patients enjoy extending their visit across the border, so he’s always happy to offer recommendations on what to do while visiting the area. “There are many delicious restaurants in the district. We’re just a few minutes from the mall and there are many great hotels around here too. Many of our patients turn their trip into a mini-vacation. No matter what your plans are, I can help you book flights, hotels or find restaurants. I am available for all your needs. Our staff is dedicated to ensuring that each patient feels secure and cared for. Anything I can do to help make that happen, I’ll do because your comfort is our top priority.”
