I highly recommend Dr. Alex! He and his office are very professional with extremely modern technology, from the pictures he takes of your mouth that you can see up close right on the screen in front of you to the TV monitor on the ceiling so you can watch your favorite Netflix show to distract yourself while he’s working on you!

He speaks perfect English for anyone who needs that, is very nice and friendly, and I really trusted him. My dentist in the US told me that I need crowns, which Alex could have done and charged me for (it’s way less than in the US) and I wouldn’t have known the difference, but he was very honest in saying I didn’t need that extra dental work and that a filling would do. (Way less money and obviously preferred for me.)
He was able to schedule me quickly and when I needed to come back he fit me in soon after. I didn’t have to wait a long time (or at all) on my visits, which seems to happen whenever I have a doctor or dentist appt in the US, and he took his time answering the million questions I had without trying to rush me out, like doctors and dentists always do in the US.
My filling has already healed well after a day and I’m very happy with his work.
His prices are no comparison compared to what I would pay in the US. A filling was 1,000 pesos, about $60.
To get there, just take any public blue bus (they run every few minutes and cost just 7.5 pesos) toward WalMart or Sam’s (sadly those are the landmarks printed on the bus that you can spot). He’s just maybe a 10 minute walk past the Wal-Mart.
Hopefully I won’t need any dental work done for a while, but if I do in the future it would be well worth a trip to lovely Puerto Vallarta to have Dr. Alex handle it.
