Mexico has several cities whose economies center around medical and dental tourism. Perhaps the best known is Los Algodones, also known as “Molar City.” Located 10 miles west of Yuma, Arizona, it is a popular destination for Americans and Canadians looking for affordable dental work.

Los Algodones has more dentist offices per capita than any other city in the world. You can park in one of many paid lots and walk across the border crossing with minimal hassles. Once on the Mexican side, you’ll be approached by salespeople with flyers trying to attract you to their respective employers. But take our word for it: do your research in advance. Not all Los Algodones dental establishments are created equal. For this article, we compared more than 115 dental clinics in Los Algodones.
