General Dentists

Some people have avoided going to the dentist for years. Sometimes it is because they have bad memories of how it used to be when they were a child. But often these days it is because they are afraid of the expense.

Did you know that you can visit a general dentist in Guatemala, have a wonderful vacation, get your teeth taken care of by a trained and experienced dentist using modern, nearly pain-free, methods and have all this for less money than you ever imagined?

Not every dental issue requires a specialist. Most dental problems can be solved by general dentists and if you haven’t seen a dentist in a while, a general dentist is a good place to start. He or or she will be able to refer you to specialists if needed.

General dentists in Guatemala require six years of study before getting their degrees. Many of them travel abroad and take part or all of their training in a university in the United States or elsewhere in Latin America. Regardless of where they studied, every dentist in this guide is fully qualified and speaks English. You will be able to discuss your situation and needs in your own language.

In some cases, getting treated by a general dentist is better than being treated by a specialist. This is because the specialist will have experience in a few, advanced procedures, whereas the general dentist will have more experience with common problems. For example, general dentists have a lot of experience treating cavities and doing restorations.
