Dr. German Arzate of Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry the First Mexican Dentist Featured in Newsweek's Promotional Dentistry Leaders Showcase

Showcase highlights leadership in dental tourism and first-class dental care

CANCUN, Mexico, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — German Arzate, DDS MS, founder of Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry™ (, is the first Mexican dentist ever to be featured in Newsweek magazine's promotional "Leaders in Implant Dentistry 2012" showcase. Newsweek invited Dr. German Arzate to be part of their showcase of Leaders in Implant Dentistry 2012 because of the prominent role his clinic plays in dental tourism in Mexico, the traveling to foreign destinations for high-quality but affordable dental care, often combined with a leisurely vacation.

"Some people wonder if it's really possible to receive first-class dental treatments outside the USA or Canada," said Arzate. "In our case, the answer is a resounding yes. All 13 dentists on our team are fluent in English and are properly certified and up to date on all dental technologies. Plus, all our materials are imported from the United States, Japan and Germany. As a result of our quality of service, we have treated more than 2,500 patients from Canada and the United States."

Dr. German Arzate is specialized in oral surgery, prosthodontics, bone regenerations, maxillary growth, as well as restorative dentistry. He also holds memberships from the AACD, AAID and the ADA where he obtains frequent updates and training.

Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry specializes in complete smile makeovers or "Hollywood Smiles" and usually completes these procedures in just one week. Additionally, dental concierges help patients obtain estimates, plan the trip, answer any questions while the patient is in Cancun and follow up on aftercare. "Our patients complete their treatments or procedures in less than a week," said Arzate.

Primary services include the following:

  • Dental implants
  • Porcelain crowns and veneers
  • Snap On dentures (implant-supported dentures)
  • Sedation dentistry
  • General dentistry
  • Extreme dental makeovers

The clinic's location in the heart of Cancun, Mexico allows dental tourism patients to combine a holiday of scuba diving, swimming with whale sharks, touring Mayan ruins, golfing or simply sunbathing by the Caribbean Sea with their dental treatments, all for a fraction of the cost they would pay in their own countries. "We offer prices that enable customers to save up to 70 percent of what they would normally pay back in their country," said Arzate. As a further addition to patients' convenience, Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry clinic is situated in Las Americas Shopping Mall, Cancun's largest shopping mall, four minutes away from the beginning of Cancun's hotel zone.

Newsweek contacted Arzate in early 2012, and the showcase is in the magazine's July 2012 Double Issue. "There are 85 million uninsured Americans," Arzate said. "And for those who are insured, the annual limits on dental benefits are often less than the cost of replacing a single tooth. Also, the coverage limits on individual procedures are only a fraction of the actual cost of the procedure. We provide a safe, cost-effective alternative, and our services are often superior to what patients would have received in their own country."

In addition to being a cosmetic dentist and oral surgeon, Arzate is a well-known sculpture artist. His artwork has been showcased in museums and galleries throughout Mexico, including the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City.
