What Makes Us Different
Per capita, Los Algodones has the highest concentration of dentists in the world. Dr. Isaías Íñiguez, Dr. Jorge Martinez, Dr. Laiza Íñiguez Smith, and Dr. Javier Ramirez are devoted to making our practice in Los Algodones a destination for excellent dental care at a great price, as well as providing you with a relaxing break from your daily routine. Many of our patients from out of town also find the warm, dry climate of the area quite pleasant.
To learn how we can help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile at a fraction of the cost of most U.S. dental practices, or to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists, please contact our office today.
Los Algodones is a small Mexican town located on the northeastern tip of the municipality of Mexicali, Baja California. Situated 9.9 miles west of Yuma, Arizona, Los Algodones is quite close to the borders of both Arizona and California. The official name of our city is Vicente Guerrero, although most people refer to it as Algodones or Molar City. In addition to dental vacations, Los Algodones has recently become a popular tourist spot and is home to many inexpensive shops and restaurants.
For patients traveling from the U.S. by car, Los Algodones is most easily reached via Interstate 8 and south just a short distance along State Route 186/Andrade Road to the international border at Andrade, California. For our passengers arriving by plane, we offer transportation services from the airport to your accommodations. We are here for you from the moment you land on the ground.
While you may stay wherever you like during your time in Los Algodones, our practice does offer comfortable and convenient accommodations for our patients via AirBnB. We have three options in nearby Yuma, Arizona which are available for your consideration — a large Camper/RV (Casa Smith Bunk House Camper) for up to 4 guests, a smaller Camper/RV (Casa Smith Little Camper) for up to 2 guests, and a single guestroom (Casa Smith’s Hidden Gem Suite) for up to 4 guests. All three of these accommodations are beautifully decorated and hosted by our own Dr. Laiza. Best of all, the campers and guestroom offer all of the comforts of home and are available for affordable prices. To see pictures, check scheduling, read reviews, and get more details about each option, please explore our listings on the AirBnB website:
In addition to the shops and restaurants of Los Algodones, our patients enjoy a number of other local attractions. The Yuma sand dunes provide a wide array of activities, including hiking, biking, camping, birding, and water sports. Downtown Yuma is the home to various activities and hosts a number of restaurants, cinema, art gallery, theater, gyms, antique stores and hosts block parties and street fairs on particular weekends. Just down the street from the downtown area is the Old Yuma Territorial Prison and museum, which is a favorite amongst tourists. Organized day trips to the Coachella Valley are popular among our patients who are eager to escape the winter of their hometowns. Los Algodones also celebrates frequent fiestas throughout the year, especially during the Christmas season.
Costs for Dental Care
The prices for dental treatment at our practice reflect high-quality care at an affordable cost when compared with equivalent services provided by top cosmetic and restorative dentists in the United States. For all patients we prioritize safety and ethical care, while emphasizing the importance of comprehensive oral health and providing treatment that is natural-looking, functional, comfortable, and long-lasting. The restorations we offer are created using quality ceramic materials (e.max® and zirconia) and they are custom-crafted by an experienced ceramist for optimal aesthetics, durability, and an outstanding fit. When you compare us to other practices in Los Algodones, you’ll find that our team of highly credentialed dentists—led by the only AACD-accredited dentist in Mexico, Isaías Íñiguez, DDS—provide unparalleled dental care at a remarkable value.

What to Expect on Your Journey
Many of our patients are surprised by how simple and enjoyable traveling to our dental office can be. Unlike the Tijuana port of entry into Mexico, the entry to Los Algodones is much smaller and easier to traverse. You may decide to drive across the border or walk, depending on what makes you feel more comfortable. Be aware that pedestrian border crossing typically takes a bit longer in the winter. To help ease any travel anxiety, our team will pick you up when you walk across the border and transport you to your hotel or directly to our office (depending on your plans). If you choose to drive yourself, our office has its own parking lot for your convenience.
We pride ourselves on providing attentive assistance to our traveling patients to make their journey as smooth as possible. If you have questions or concerns about traveling, our knowledgeable office team is happy to provide you with the information you are looking for—we welcome your phone calls and emails!
