Dental Tourism – “I especially regret the lost time and the very uncomfortable and inconvenient period.”
A few years ago I sought out Dr. Steven Bongard, as I had heard good things about him, and asked him to examine me for possible implants, upper and lower. I was using an upper denture. He was confident that I could succeed in having and keeping a permanently implanted mouth. However, as a retiree with a fixed income I was concerned about the high cost. After researching the field and much thought, I decided to go abroad to have it done and I told Dr. Bongard of my regrets. He wished me well, and asked that I keep in touch.
I flew to Mexico where I underwent the procedures lasting nearly a month, and incurring hotel and food expenses. Then I was told that after a few weeks or a month, I needed to return for the next procedure. Now the unexpected expenses and the inconvenience made me decide to see Dr. Bongard about the possibility of bringing the work to a successful conclusion. He accepted me as his patient and we found that one, then another, implant failed and had to be replaced. I appreciate the fact that he undertook to repair the possibly faulty work done abroad. I especially regret the lost time and the very uncomfortable and inconvenient period.
