Despite its name, Imagen Dental does more than dentistry. In business since 1994, Imagen has 19 clinics (18 in Monterrey and one in Nuevo Laredo) and more than 200 physicians and surgeons who provide comprehensive dental, optical (glasses and lenses), and auditory (hearing aid) services. Eye surgeries are performed in the operating rooms of JCI-accredited Christus Muguerza Hospital.
Most of Imagen’s dental work is cosmetic and includes implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, gum surgeries, and root canals. Imagen uses digital radiology, which emits 80 percent less radiation than normal radiology. The dental clinics employ patient education systems in both English and Spanish and an intraoral camera to show patients pictures and videos of their mouths and teeth.
Tailored to the needs of the medical traveler, Imagen’s audiology laboratory can deliver a hearing aid in two days.
