Dental Tourism - Patient
Los Algodones is believed to have more dentists per capita than anywhere else in the world. One of the reasons its such a good place to practice is that the town is a magnet for American and Canadian patients. Some say the main attraction is cost. Getting your teeth fixed in Mexico is a lot cheaper than getting them fixed in the United States or Canada.
Jim Hadley has traveled to Los Algodones for dental work. He's from Alberta originally. He's retired now. And he splits his time between Radium, British Columbia and Yuma, Arizona. He was in Yuma for the show.
