Any good food in dental offices?
If yes how much does it cost?

From what I hear, there are some pretty good eats and drinks in the parking lot.

Dental works aren't life and death. So doing it outside the country is not as risky as other medical procedures.
On the other hand, as many had pointed out, quality varies a lot. So, you'll want to find a GOOD source before going. (typically, you probably want to get quite a few teeth done so if quality isn't good, you got a lot more follow up to do, which defeats the purpose of saving money).
I grew up in a third world country, I can tell you the dental work I had back in my birth country were better quality than some of the ones I got done here! The other end of spectrum, I also lucked out with a very good dentist here too (not just good, excellent)!
To be 100% honest, the longevity of a restoration has far more to due with the patients dietary and hygiene habits over time than the "quality" of the work, as i've seen literally thousands of what on the surface often appear as "crappy" restorations that have been functioning without a single problem for over 25yrs and also plenty of technically superior restorations that have failed within 2your to 3yrs after placement As I tell my patients, I only guarentee my work won't fail until they leave my office, since after that the longevity is up to how THEY take care of it, and just like their car needs regular care and maintenance for longevity sake, so do obe's teeth (real or fake)
When the same dentist did TWO teeth, and BOTH of them cracked within 6 months, I can't see why it's NOT a quality issue.
In the mean time, fillings done 6 YEARS prior were still holding fine. So did some in between the time, by other (American) dentist.
As a dentist, you may or may not have the patient history. But I do, the history of my own teeth!
I'll take luck if just one of the two failed. But reality is, none of my prior (or since) fillings last less than 5 years (many lasted more). To have 100% failure has to be a skill (and/of) quality problem. Further more, the re-do of those 2 fillings, by a different dentist, lasted years since. Tell me it's not a bad dentist! Fancy office he had too...
Dental insurance is it worth the price, I guess we need to change name of this threads, at least its food related, lol.
Wow!!! This has been a lively discussion, over 3000 views and over 100 replies, and the discussion has even morphed. I gotta say it has been an eye opener to me. I doubt I'll complain much about on mountain pricing anymore. I probably won't indulge much either, except on real cold days with a bowl of chowder. I may mention when the prices are so high that no one is buying. The ratio of quality to price seems to be the biggest issue. I feel like such a cheapskate in that it is more about the overall price.
Looking forward to next season. Getting a pass for the River, the Loaf and Loon. Maybe I'll actually get to the loaf and Loon next year. I really missed the loaf, I love that mountain.
