Make an Appointment and Visit us at BajaDent Tijuana
If you choose to come to us, here, to our BajaDent Tijuana family of satisfied dental and cosmetic patients, we suggest that you contact us in Tijuana, so that you initial dental examination can be scheduled.
To schedule your appointment, you can call us at (619) 870-1798, email us at [email protected] or fill the form on this page.
Your initial examination is important for our doctors to determine the health of your teeth, your jaw, and gums. We will begin your examination with a series of X-rays, which are designed to provide doctors with a complete look at the structure of your current jaw and teeth. For patients who are returning to BajaDent Tijuana for an examination after six months of their surgery, we will not necessary take any X-rays, unless we need to treat a new issue, for example, a tooth that has been broken or infected.
The thorough cleaning of your gums and teeth will be the final segment of your general dentistry visit to BajaDent Tijuana. Your teeth will be cleaned gently and thoroughly by a member of our hygiene team. Your procedure will be finished with highlighting your healthy smile with a polish.

New Border Crossing Regulations:
1.- You must now have a US passport to cross the border:
Just like the US Government requires everyone crossing the border into the US to have passports, the Mexican Government also now requires all persons crossing into Mexico to have a passport. Things have historically been a little lax, but now they are tightening up on the regulations. Make sure you get your passport before crossing into Mexico, to avoid any delays or hassle, by the US Customs, as well as Mexican Customs.
If you haven’t yet gotten a US Passport, we strongly recommend that you get the “Passport Card”, rather than the “Passport Book”. You can actually apply for both, or either one. But the reason the Passport Card works better than the Book, is because it has the RFID electronic chip, which qualifies you to use the faster moving “Ready Lanes” either as a pedestrian or riding in a car. Here is a link to the government website: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports/apply.html
2.- You will need to get a Tourist Visa at the border:
Pedestrian Crossing: If leave your car parked at the border, and are walking into Mexico, you will need to present your US passport, and fill out a tourist permit form. It will just take 5 minutes. However, make sure you keep your tourist permit on your person. In case you are stopped in Mexico for any reason, you will now have proof that you entered into the country legally. The cost of a tourist permit, to visit Tijuana for a week, is free. But, if you plan to stay for more than a week, plan to return for a second trip, or are thinking of going on to Rosarito or Ensenada, you will need to get the 180 day permit, costing $25.
Crossing the border by car: If you are stopped in Tijuana, you will need to show that you have legally crossed the border. So, even though you could just drive through Mexican Customs, and they don’t ask you for any documents, don’t neglect to first stop and get your tourist permit. The process will just take a few minutes.
When you first cross into Mexico, do NOT get into the lines of cars that are going through the lanes through for inspection. Rather, keep to the right, and go straight ahead to the area for Voluntary Declaration. Most of the cars going in here, and parking, are stopping to declare products that they purchased in the US, so they can pay the “Importation Tax”. But this is the same area where you will find the “Immigration” office, in order to get your tourist permit. Just park your car next to the others, and go into the building. Inside you will find the Immigration office, and tell them you want a tourist permit. It will be easiest if you just tell them you are coming to visit and shop, otherwise they will ask you for the exact address of the clinic, and hotel address where you are staying. Just a little less hassle.
