Re: Dentists in La Manzanilla

Bethany and I both went to this dentist for cleaning. He was gentle and did a good cleaning job. But then he told both of us that we had many cavities, like 16-20. I have had my teeth cleaned every 6 months for years in the US and haven't had a cavity since in my 20's. He showed me a picture of "a cavity" that looked just like a dent in my tooth. I asked him if there was "decay" because I didn't know the Spanish word for that. For all the English dental words he knew, he didn't understand "decay".

Bethany had a broken tooth "capped" and it lasted 2 month before falling off. The dentist in Melaque said it should never have been done that way. Buyer beware!
