recommended dentist

I will be coming to Mexico City on January 17 for two months vacation. While visiting the City I would like to have some dental work done--two root canals and crowns on two teeth.

I will be staying in the federal district. I would greatly appreciate recommendations from individuals who have had similar dental work and were pleased with both the quality and price.

Thanks for the assistance.

Do you need a dentist who speaks English?

For a root canal, you need more than a regular dentist. You need a specialist in "Endodoncia". Dr. Moísés Fasja is famous and has a good team of surgeons on staff as wwell. His office is at Palmas 1055 at the corner of Cofre de Perote, which is not that far from the Polanco tourist area. His phones are (52 55) 5202 0443, 5202 6797, 5540 0401. If I recall, he sent me to a regular dentist for the crown following pain-free root canal surgery.

This is a very good section of town. Rates will be lower than you find in Atlanta, but not rock bottom. If you are visiting Mexico for cheap dental work, this is not the place to go. This is a quality professional with a waiting list of clients.

No, it is not necessary that the dentist speaks English.

Thanks for the reply.

I had already made my airline reservation for Mexico before having a precautionary six month dental check-up. At the check-up the dentist informed me that I needed the root canals and crowns.

Does the dentist you mention have a website?

no web site - you have a phone number above to call and ask questions or set your appointment and luckily you note no need for English speakers.
