Tijuana Toothcare Touristry

12:35 PM -- Today's New York Times reports that more and more Americans are traveling abroad to avoid the exhorbitant cost of at-home medical care and overcome the limitations of their laughably inadequate insurance coverage.

"Roughly half a million Americans sought medical care abroad in 2006, of which 40 percent were dental tourists..."

Mexico, including -- yes -- Tijuana, seems to be destination numero uno for cut-rate dentistry. (Anesthetics, I understand, are priced quite reasonably there.) They may have to build a fence to discourage the Janqui wetbacks. A dental dam, so to speak.
