theshnizzle,
I'll check for an endodontist, I got a job done from one local few years ago really good, and have an orthodontist friend here that can recommend another one in case I can not find the one I visited.
PM me for your travel timeframe so we can plan accordingly.

Nope, I'm not going that far. I also need to find one somewhat close to border because it will take 2 appts around 5/8/10? Days apart. I would like to explore the countryside s in between appts.

Please let me know,this is pretty important for me.

Thanks
Here is an ad I took a pic of a few months ago while flying Delta here in the US with some contact info that you could possibly be some assistance.

Hey, plzn,thanks but I am a pretty nervous person at the dentist and I really hesitate to pick one randomly. I am very much counting on the ADVRIDER family for good reputable recommendations.

You'll take medical advice and recommendations from people you don't even know and have never seen ?

Acejones is absolutely right. More expats pick lousy Mexican medical providers simply because the Dr speaks English and is a good salesman. Due diligence is required. The border area is probably the most predatory area. Mas grande del sapo es la pedrata.

Be sure to select motorcycle to get the correct tolls.

You may consider Dr Maria Tuttle in Nuevo Progresso as a recommendation. Worked on my wife and I the last 4 years (cleaning, cavities, etc). Her office is on the left as you enter town (the purple tooth) on left. I'm in Donna TX now. Good journey.

Hey, when do we hear from the US dentists on ADV that were so PO'd last time the Mexican dentists were discussed? Not that I'm trying to foment a controversy.

Thanks to YOU GUYS I made it here just fine.. xoxoxo

Hey folks.

I posted some questions a couple of weeks back about route choices into Central Mexico via Reynosa… and well, I just wanted let you guys know I made to San Miguel JUST FINE!! Yes. Fantf*ckintastic.

No problems at the border other than getting a little bit lost. I rode through the military exit check point first, before actually entering the customs office and getting my documents taken care of . The two very young guys posted there were in fact quite kind, and gently pointed me in the right direction after I showed them I wasn't carrying any nuclear weapons.

Then, after I bumbled around the customs office for about 10 minutes, a kindly gentlemen came out of the building and guided me through the proper procedures. I think people got a kick out of the silly little gringa dressed like an astronaut.

No issues with corrupt cops or other scary folk with big guns. My first day out I stayed on the move without stopping much, given my lack of familiarity with the situation. I think that worked in my favor.

Thanks to several of you guys who gave me great advice (and particularly to pilot815 who actually met me in McAllen and went over my route with me), I took the most fabulous roads down, off the cuotas, through an amazing mountain pass west of Linares, and stopped for 2 nights in Galeana. Galeana!! Love that place. Fantastic people, no tourists… people seemed happy, you know? Jaw-droppingly beautiful… etc. After that I headed to Real de Catorce and dumped my bike trying to maneuver into the hotel courtyard (oh well - I'm ok, bike's ok - you win some, you loose some, right?). Again, gorgeous.. lots of tourists. And my final push to San Miguel was easy.

So I've been here now for nearly two weeks. It's so beautiful I'm finding it hard to be motivated to get the work done I came here to do. Hell, if that's my biggest problem.. I'm one hell of a lucky woman.

I've posted a couple of blog entries in case anyone is interested at http://thefrighteningandbeautiful.blogspot.mx. I'll post more there soon, with better pics and stories; more than likely I'll do a ride report here at some point too. After I leave San Miguel, if my finances don't dry up, I'll continue further south… so more to come…

Heather

PS. This whole thing is part of an art project, by the way. I'm leaving hand-embroidered art objects all over Mexico (and hopefully Central America) for random people to discover and collect. Stay tuned..
