And as I recall Cleese was a British accountant and miserable at that trade, so he went into comedy. The closest that he ever got to Mexico was berating the Spanish servant on Fawlty Towers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fawlty_Towers), which was a part actually played by a German-born actor.

Yeah, sure, if that was true there would be a rock in the picture.

Looking for a good Mexican dentist close to Alpine, Texas

We are riding for another 2 weeks and I need to visit an inexpensive but good dentist.

Does anyone have any experience with Mexican dentists and can you recommend one.

We are in Alpine, Texas today and can head either East or West.

All suggestions welcome.


Carl

I recommend Milton. He's part Mexican.

If you didn't eat dinner at Reata in Alpine, you missed out.

I'll second Trices comments about Riata in Alpine. Ive eaten there a few times; never been disappointed. Don't know about dentists in that area. Last Mexican dentist I used was in Puerto Vallarta. should be some good ones around Acuna/Del Rio. Not sure about Ojinaga/Presidio.

Kurt, did you happen to wave to an extremely sweaty guy on a 2002 Dakar yesterday? If so, that was me. I crossed paths with a black and silver 1200 between catemaco and coatzocoalcos.

VERY IMPORTANT WARNING FOR THOSE PLANNING TO GO TO MEXICO:









'chorizo' = hotdogs

This one piece of information will help you avoid the pain and anguish of receiving a meal that doesn't look anything like you expected it to.

Well, I've been married to one for 19 years. LOL!
Dentist and Orthodontist, certified in both. What do you need? And define "inexpensive".

Hoping to hear from someone who crosses the border to use a dentist.

I was hoping to hear from that somone on this board that has experience with going to Mexico and using a dentist across the border. No time for a longer trip into Mexico or Guatemala this time so someone within a days (2 days) riding distance from Alpine, Texas would be best.

Maybe ask someone around Alpine or Marfa or Presidio.
