We’ve had several questions from our loyal subscribers about our medical and dental experiences here in Cuenca Ecuador so we thought we’d share our dental experience with you in this video.
I went to Dr. Grace for a cleaning back in July, and was really impressed with her office and staff, and her knowledge and skill as a dentist. She was recommended to us by some gringo friends of ours.
Since then, she also won the Best Dentist in Cuenca Award for 2019 from GringoPost.com. This award is given based on the number of votes from mostly gringos who frequent GringoPost.com (which is most of us). As a side note, Café Libre won the Best New Restaurant Award for 2018.
Amelia went to Dr. Grace for a cleaning in December, which is when she found out about the poor state of her old fillings. Several had mercury, which is horrible for human health in ANY amount. And others had been worn down due to Amelia’s night clenching. She also decided to get a nightguard to help protect her teeth from more damage.
We have been thoroughly impressed with Dr. Grace! She takes time to explain what she’s doing and she speaks great English so we can easily understand her.
We were also very happy that she had the proper equipment to safely remove the mercury from Amelia’s mouth.
Dental tourism and medical tourism are growing here in Ecuador due to the affordable healthcare. Rather than give thousands of dollars to a dentist in the states, you could have an amazing vacation to Ecuador PLUS get your dental work done for the same price.
Here are the links to Dr. Grace so you can contact her if you need an appointment. Please tell her JP and Amelia from Vegans Abroad sent you.
We didn’t get paid for this video or for referring people to her.
