SANTA FE, N.M., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The average US senior citizen who is 65 years old will spend $9,000 or more on major dental expenses like crowns, implants, and root canals before the end of their life. For most seniors who live on a fixed income with little to no savings and minimal, if any, dental insurance coverage, the outlook can be dismal--go into debt to pay for the treatment they need or put their health at risk by delaying care. Beyond Borders Dental LLC, a New Mexico based company, is seeking to change this with their innovative dental tourism program that saves seniors up to 80% on their dental care with high quality clinics in Mexico.
Thousands of seniors already travel for treatment to save money. Now Beyond Borders Dental LLC is making that process even easier by shuttling seniors from the US to select clinics in Mexico. Clients who choose their Dental Concierge Service can expect to have everything taken care of, including scheduling treatment, round-trip travel from Santa Fe and Albuquerque to Palomas, Mexico, transfer to the border, accompaniment to the dental clinic, and lodging. All clinics are carefully vetted by a four-step quality evaluation process and are 100% safe. This service is particularly helpful for seniors who prefer not to drive and cross the border on their own.
Retirement is supposed to be the well-earned time of relaxation, however, many seniors never get to enjoy retirement because they are faced with serious financial challenges. According to a 2014 study by Bankrate, over a third of all working adults fail to save a single penny for retirement. This lack of savings is compounded by the fact that only 2% of retirees have dental coverage from insurance, according to Oral Health America. This translates to big problems for the US's aging population.
Medicare doesn't provide dental coverage for most routine dental care either, so many retirees are going into debt to cover costs or forgoing treatment entirely. While some may believe that dental care is a luxury, researchers have found that a person's mouth can serve as a window into their overall health. Oral exams can uncover serious, health problems such as diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and autoimmune disorders. Studies by the American Dental Association show there is an existing correlation between gum disease and pneumonia, heart disease, and many other severe illnesses.
With dental crowns costing as little as $250, root canals $280, and dentures $800, it's clear that Beyond Borders is a fantastic option for seniors looking for quality, affordable dental care. All of Beyond Borders dentists are highly trained and credentialed and they guarantee their work – if the client isn't satisfied, they will modify, adjust, or redo their work as necessary. Additionally, Beyond Borders will shuttle the patient back at no charge within three months of treatment.
