    And don't get me started on "dental care" in this country...
    $4000 for a partial denture --- insane.
    A friend went to Mexico (a little spot south of Guadalajara). She had an estimate from her American dentist of $10,000 for her dental work and two weeks worth of visits.

    The American-trained doctor in Guadalajara had state-of-the-art equipment  and did the work in two days (with no pain for my friend) for $3,000.

    The difference paid for the trip with many thousands of dollars left over.

    I like to recount this story to people who think it's relevant that Canadians sometimes come the USA for health care.
