Hi. I just broke a tooth, and have been calling the numbers in the directory, and either get no answer, the number is no longer in service, or a retired dentist (Dr. Arturo Perezcano). Does anyone have a recommendation for a good dentist who is still in business in Zihua? I did look back in the archives, but found posts from a few years back.

I agree. Dr. Elizabeth Ortis comes well recommended.
I just had work done for a broken tooth by their fabulous team and can attest to their high level of professionalism and patient care. She is fluent in English and French.
Can't say enough about this Dentist.

Many thanks! I will call again tomorrow. Maybe it was siesta time as no one answered today.

In my experience Dra Rocio doesn't keep regular office hours, but works largely by appointment. Email works better, though this one is a few years old

Elizabeth Ortiz is great. Just walk down cinco de mayo five blocks from the bayfront turn right a half a block. She starts work at 9:30. It is best to go in person.

I guess if I don’t get a reply from her, I will try that approach. Thanks!

Thanks so much! I saw her today and found out that I need a root canal with another dentist, plus a crown, probably, so the saga Continues. I will let you know how it all works out. Thanks so much for your help!!!

Quick update. The good news is that Dr. Elizabeth Ortiz and her beautiful team of amazing dentists saw me the very next day, took x rays, and did a temporary patch. The bad news is I now need a root canal, so She referred me to a root canal specialist, and I have an appointment for Tuesday. Then I will probably need a crown. I highly recommend Dr. Elizabeth Ortiz. I had emailed Dr. Rocio and she responded right away too. Thanks everyone for your kind assistance. I am confident this will all be resolved in the best way possible.
