      Over the past 15 years I have accumulated a mouthful of implants and bone grafts. All of the work over the past few years has been by Dr Alvarez-Carrera. My original motivation for making the 1400-mile round trip was financial. However, since that first visit, it has been his professionalism that has inspired the journey to Tijuana.

      The experiences I have had with local oral surgeons pales in comparison. Dr Alvarez is not only extremely competent, and more hygienic; he is always task-intent and never cuts corners. He is as serious about his work as I am. I will not go to any other oral surgeon.

      Great Dr/Dentist Great Staff Great Experience

      I have been seeing Dr. Alvarez for over 5 years. After 2 dental implants and other assorted work I have had no problems and to the contrary have had a great experience, who can say that about their dentist? My wife is now having an implant done and a close friend who owns a dental lab was so impressed with Dr. Alvarez's work for me that he and his wife are now patients. I have recommended Dr. Alvarez to many friends and work associates and would recommend him to you too.

      The Greatest Dental Experience I've Ever Had

      Dr. Alvarez performed dental implants for me approximately eight years ago. I live in San Diego, and the trip was easier for me than driving to North County. First, his facilities are cleaner than anything I ever experienced. I would be comfortable having open-heart surgery there. Dr. Alvarez and his staff are top-shelf. I would never hesitate to make the short and stress-free trip again in the future. His work is second to none. Oh, did I mention I saved 35% in $$$ also?

      This Dentist/oral Surgeon is an Amazing Find

      Dr. Alvarez is an amazing dentist and oral surgeon. I live in the Los Angeles area, so my traveling to TJ is primarily to get the quality Dr. Alvarez provides his patients. (3 hour drive to the dentist!)
      My initial procedure was an implant surgery and crown. What particularly amazed me was the quality of his porcelain crowns. (and the implant surgery too) I subsequently had Dr. Alvarez install/replace many many crowns in my mouth. He has a porcelain crown maker who is beyond compare.
      You want a movie star mouth? This doctor/dentist is the man for the job.
      Suggestion: Book the Grand Hotel while you are in town. hotels.com makes it cheap and easy to book, and the hotel is just around the corner from this dental office. You'll save some money compared to US dentistry and oral surgery, so indulge yourself by staying at this hotel! Nice place similar to the Vegas strip hotels. (they even have a casino!)
      "Berta" (assistant to Dr. Alvarez) calls me on my cell phone from time to time to remind me to get cleanings, etc. This I always appreciate. I visit this office partially to visit my amigos and amigas. Tell Dr. Alvarez, Dr. Cecelia, Dr. Fernanda, Berta, I say hi! Cheers

      The Best Dentist Hands Down

      I have been going to Dr. Alvarez for over 20 years because of his ability to stay on the forefront of dentistry and the compassion and caring his staff gives to every patient. I have made the journey from Orange County to Tijuana because of this. I also am now going through my first dental implant. I am amazed how state of the art the guidance system he uses to install the implant as well as verify the viability of the implant site before he even starts treatment.

      I can not give high enough praise to him and has staff!!

      Outstanding Dental Service

      Dr. Alvarez-Carrera has been my oral surgeon/periodontist for about seventeen years. When I first sought out high quality implants at competitive pricing on the web I encountered his clinic web page. I have (lifelong) multiple teeth and gum problems. They seem perpetual. Since then his patient teaching style has helped significantly to improve these problems through additional implants and gum surgery. I would say that he is one of exceptional dentist I have encountered in my search for excellent dental health.

      An Amazing Surgeon and Dentist

      In 2013 I was fortunate to discover Dr. Alvarez-Carrera’s website. I needed extensive dental reconstruction and he eventually performed a full mouth restoration. Dr. Alvarez-Carrera’s surgical skills are the highest quality I’ve seen. All of his work has been excellent.
      Even though I live in Portland, Oregon, it is worth the time to travel to his clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for treatment.

      Best Dentist... and I Have Had Many.

      My husband and I both appreciate the quality and care of the dentistry we have received with Dr Alvarez-Carrera. Also my daughter had an implant and has excellent results. I have a mouthfull of implants and was completely impressed and confident in the work I had done by the doctor. He impressed us with his attention to detail and advanced technology, and his explination of what needed to be done. The entire office gave me, and us, excellent results with the many implants I needed. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Alvarez-Carrera and his staff.

      so thankful i discovered dr. alvarez-carrera 19 years ago!

      My husband and I have been getting all our dental work done at Ricardo Alvarez-Carrera’s office since I first discovered him nineteen years ago when I tripped over our cat, did a swan dive down the stairs and knocked my front teeth out.
      I had clients who went to Mexico for dentistry but I do my own homework.

      I was impressed by Dr. Alavarez’s credentials: Lloma Linda dental school—one of the most prestigious in the country—and then a three year post graduate residency there. He’s been on the Lloma Linda faculty ever since.

      When I first discovered “Dr. A,” I had to make sure his credentials were legit so I had an endodontist friend at Lloma Linda walk over to the Oral Implantology Center to ask about him. All I wanted to know was “Is he who he says he is?” My friend heard accolades galore: “a genius…the most brilliant student to have ever complete the program,” among them.
