WHAT IS SOTA (STATE-OF-THE-ART) DENTAL?
SOTA Dental is a Cancun based, American managed collaborative of dental professionals focusing on microscopic dentistry & state-of-the-art implant technologies.
We organize a team of dental specialists who exemplify the absolute highest level of technical skills & professionalism.
Our focus is specifically on patients coming to Mexico from abroad who want the same level of services as offered in the United States.
WHAT DOES SOTA DENTAL DO?
We arrange your appointment with our specialists. We guide you through your trip abroad in English. We recommend only the highest-level specialists & teams in Quintana Roo.
Also, our US management organizes this collaborative and oversees verified clinics in Mexico to ensure they are maintaining the high standards set forth by the American Dental Association’s “Code of Ethics” & the US CDC’s “Infection Prevention Practices”.
SOTA Dental streamlines your dental work abroad & provides direct access to our highly-skilled specialists & clinics in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, & Tulum.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN BOOKING WITH ANOTHER CLINIC?
All dentists & specialists working within the SOTA Dental collaborative are by invite only and are held to very strict, first world standards in order to maintain their status with us.
Each dental specialist is continually re-evaluated to ensure they are meeting American health standards and providing outstanding technical services.
HOW DOES THIS BENEFIT THE PATIENT?
We take away the headache of searching for the absolute best doctors in Mexico. When booking through SOTA Dental, you can rest assured that your doctors are safe, professional & stand out within their specialty.
All of our doctors work together on our virtual platform, so it’s like having all the top dentists in Quintana Roo working on your case at the same time.
DOES IT COST MORE TO BOOK THROUGH SOTA DENTAL?
Absolutely not! You will never pay us for medical assistance! You will always pay directly at each clinic and pay the same as a walk-in.
Prices listed on our website are guaranteed to be identical to those charged at each clinic. Coming from abroad for treatments can save you up to 70% of US dental prices.
Part of what we have done is to help standardize most of the prices between clinics and provide an honest price structure for patients.
*Prices very slightly between clinic locations depending on the materials & brands used. We offer different prices to accommodate different budgets.
WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?
WHY DID WE CREATE SOTA DENTAL?
SOTA Dental was founded in the United States by American patients & professionals with first hand experience abroad seeking verifiable medical & dental treatment outside of the United States. It’s hard to know if your doctor is qualified when traveling aboard for medical work. Dental tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry which can lead to some unusual & sometimes deceptive business practices in countries not held to the legal standards of the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, & Europe.

UNDERSTAND THE DETAILS
Technology is reshaping the dental field but not all clinics are keeping up. It’s hard to know if a dentist is using the latest technology available to ensure the best possible outcome for his/her patients. It is especially hard when coming from abroad. All doctors working with SOTA Dental are passionate about being at the forefront of technology with microscopes, 3D scanners, lasers, & in-house labs. We specialize in complex cases.
Microscopic dentistry is one of the most exciting technologies advancing dental these days. While all specialties within dental can benefit from the use of microscopes, endodontists are one of the primary beneficiaries of this new technology. Failed root canal treatments are often the result of negligence by undertrained dentists. Small amounts of bacteria are sometimes accidently left within the canal of a tooth during these procedures that leads to future infections & costly retreatments. Properly examining a tooth with a microscope enables detailed surgical precision and higher success rates in our cases.
Overseeing the doctors at SOTA Dental in Mexico is Dr. Gilberto Galvez. He is an internationally renowned endodontist who has a passion for this niche within dentistry (see his popular Instagram page). His advanced microscope training & surgical process is shared and vetted with a collaborative of microscopic dental specialists working together with SOTA Dental. He oversees collaborative cases and evaluates each dentist or specialist quarterly to make sure they are maintaining SOTA Dental standards.
Before being seen by a SOTA Dental specialist, you can speak with your doctor to ensure that you are fully prepared. We have specialists on our team working at several dental clinics throughout Quintana Roo and pride ourselves in having the absolute brightest minds innovating on an international level within their dental field. We guarantee that you will be seen by a dental specialist who is not only skilled, but also passionate about their work.
Dental Implants in Mexico
