I go to Juarez all the time and I've never had a problem...actually enjoy it! I park on the El Paso,Texas side of the border and walk across the bridge. I usually go to the pharmacies to get my blood pressure meds at a much cheaper price! I've heard that Washington dental is really good! You'll need a passport to get back int the USA.

Yes. Shave & comb your hair. That way your depacicated skull will look like it once belonged to a smart lad as hit hangs from some canal bridge.

Heck, I even know Americans who's Las Palomas (Mexican) dentist got kidnapped for ransome. When his U.S. zpik kids didn't pay up, they killed him and the poor American teenager who was unfortunate enough to be in his waiting room.

Do what you want, but money-greed and wickedness has it's hooks in that Mexican ilk like you ain't never seen.

Their standards of dentistry are comparable to ours and you would have a hard time finding someone locally who could beat their prices. The problem is if you find you need some emergency dental work (and this may have nothing to do with the work you had done at Washington Dental) or you decide you just don't want the hassle of going to Juarez anymore, the local dentists will absolutely refuse to see you. I suppose you could get around this by not telling the local dentists where you got you last dental work performed. Personally, I feel that taking an entire day off from work just isn't worth it.

their is a parking structure on organ street and a couple down from montana....three story....you can park your car there and a van from washington clinic comes around every hour and picks you up and takes you across..it will bring you back also....and they validate your parking ticket....but tip the valet anyway....the clinic used to be good but havent been there in over ten years....you can cross the street and there are two pharmacies that can sell you almost anything you need without a prescription....somethings will need a prescription..

I was very impressed by the professional DDS and staff as well as the cleanliness of the facility. Not at all what I had expected, much better than many of the American Dentist office I have visit. I got two bridges done and some crowns all within 48 hrs. I stayed at Holiday Inn in, in El Paso. The DDS van came to the Hotel took us over then brought us back, very safe and proessional I highly reccommend the service and facility.

Advice- DON'T GO!!! Better paying the higher price here than risking going over to Juarez and getting killed.

I had my whole mouth 26 teeth and to partials capped for 5000.00$ there in two visits. I will never see another american dentist again ever in my lifetime. The Dentists at the Washington clinic are very excellant and effecient at what they do. The reason is the volume they do. The more you do procedures the more proficient you become at your craft. I had previously had work done by american butchers my whole life who ruined my teeth by un necessary procedures to drum up business for profit. I dont trust american dentists they have all been greedy in my experiance and very very pushy at playing at peoples insecurites and emotions concerning their teeth. I actually had one american dentist arressted for using american patients as guinea pigs for chinese dental students. He lost his license and many people had their teeth ruined from un necessary drilling on their teeth. Dont trust american Dentists they have way to much overhead to operate on and thats another big reason that drives their greed.

Took my 6 yr old to an American dentist who claim my son needed two crowns. When I questioned it they then said he didn't even need fillings.its sad that they will do unnecessary dental work on so many kids who's parents dont know any better just to get their money. That is truly unprofessional.

I was there in May 2013 and again last week - March 2014 - They are in a safe place, an easy walk or cab to the border. Their work is inexpensive, fast and reliable. It isn't exactly pretty but they are friendly and good and a wonderful value compared to US dentists.
