We can then build an accurate estimate based directly off of this treatment, but with our better prices. This way we know we are comparing “apples to apples” so to speak. All the information you can share with us before your arrival will make it easier for us to better serve you.

If not, submit a free online consultation for your root canals in Colombia

If you do not know what work you’d like/need done, we have a free online consultation you can easily fill out on your phone. It’s just a short form that will guide you in taking 5 specific photos we need to make a proper dental diagnosis. 

Please make sure your are NOT moving your bottom teeth forward and that you are biting down completely. We are examining your natural bite, gaps, crookedness, and other dental factors. 

Also know that this free online consultation will not replace the need of getting a physical examination and taking x-rays in some cases. A lot of root canal problems will only show up via x-rays or a physical examination. This will simply give us a much better idea of what could be done and the costs. 

Research round-trip flights to Colombia

After you have spoken with us about the cost of your root canals in Colombia and you’re happy with the price, it’s time to begin researching flights and their costs.

There are many flights that go to Colombia from the US and Canada. There are many direct flights, and lots more that connect in Florida or Georgia. They are typically cheap, especially if you book in advance. 

They are also quick flights and you won’t have to deal with any jet lag while you are visiting. Colombia is either in EST or PST depending on what time of the year it is as Colombia does not observe daylight savings time.

We have offices in all of Colombia’s major cities. We are happy to serve you in Cartagena, Medellin, Cali, and Bogota. 

If you’re not sure which city you’d like to visit, just give us a call or shoot us an email and we’d be happy to offer some recommendations based on your preferences. 

Look for hotels in Colombia

Next, you should calculate the cost of your hotel while you're in Colombia for your root canals. 

Before you book, make sure you know how many days you’ll need. Some procedures can be done in one day, some root canal treatments take up to 5 days to complete. It’d be a shame if you came down without enough time.
