Medellin Dental Solutions is dental practice focused on providing dental care to Medellín visitors and local patients seeking cost effective, state of the art dental treatment.
Our English speaking dentists are ready to provide the best services in the various fields of dentistry including:
Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of the mouth (teeth and gums), unlike traditional dentistry which focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral diseases. People seek cosmetic dentistry for a variety of reasons. The truth is, most people would like their teeth to be straighter, whiter, and pleasing to the eye when they smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry procedures include:
Crowns and Bridges are created to restore a tooth's appearance, structure, or function. Crowns are intended to repair damage to individual teeth. They replace tooth structure lost by decay or injury, protect the part of the tooth that remains, and restore the tooth's shape and function. Dental Bridges fill in a space in the jaw left by a missing tooth or teeth. They protect the shape of the mouth and restore function of the teeth and jaw.
Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with one of several filling materials: Composite resin (white filling material) or porcelain. Each filling material has its advantages and disadvantages. Your dentist will work with you to determine which material is appropriate for you.
Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the teeth over time. Usually it is tooth colored and can easily be mistaken as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black in color.

Great place with great staff. Dr. Juan Carlos Mejia and his staff did a wonderful job on my teeth while keeping me comfortable and telling me step by step on what they were doing. I had a 3 crown bridge done and it came out excellent! They knew I had limited time in Medellin and they sped up the process for me to get what I needed done. Definitely recommended and would come back here again! And also I am loving the quality of the the crowns, they feel like pearls in my mouth.
My husband and I booked appointments for teeth whitening and we were both very happy with Medellin Dental Solutions. We were seen swiftly, the girls who assisted us were very sweet and the results were great! My only complaint would be that the dentist tried to up-sell (up-selling is my pet hate!) the zoom whitening system when we were already in the dentist chair. I always prefer to have ALL the options in front of me before booking an appointment so I can make decisions considering the different options, rather than being told “it’s this price” and later being told “it’s actually this price if you want the newest system”. But, despite this, we would recommend MDS.
My husband and I have been returning to Medellin for annual dental visits with Dr. Mejia for several years now. Our most recent visit involved my husband having 4 crowns and an implant. We have always had outstanding personalized service and this most recent visit was no exception. He is thorough and meticulous with his assessments of what is needed and presents the patient with the details of his findings. Also, Dr. David Arango, the surgeon who completed the preparation for and insertion of his implant was excellent. State of the art materials are used and he advised him every step of the way during the procedure. My husband says It was actually the easiest major dental procedure that he has ever had. In addition to the excellent care we receive the cost savings is undeniable. We long ago stopped even considering a US dentist. Without hesitation, we can recommend Dr. Mejia, his staff and professional associates
I don't think I have ever had a better experience in the Dentist chair as far as any extensive work goes. The extraction of the two dental implants that were previously installed by a totally incompetent dentist and the resulting bone graft that had to be done were much, much easier than i had expected. Almost zero pain. I took one Motrin last night but do not feel like I need any more. I was completely pain free in less than 24 hours. Thanks for the very professional job! Much, Much better than at least 10 dentists I have had in the USA over the years.
I just sent an email home to the US telling my family that I am so glad that I decided to have my dental work done here at Medellin Dental Solutions. Prices for dental work are about 1/3 to 1/2 the price as in the States and the facilities are modern, clean and up to date with a professional and courteous staff. I came in thinking that I needed a couple crowns on teeth that my dentist at home thought might be “prone” but Dr. Juan Carlos who speaks fluent English pointed out that my real problem was with an old bridge which sounded exactly correct and turned out to be. Throughout, I felt the utmost confidence in the work and procedures performed and now my mouth at long last feels great again. Regarding the crowns, I wanted to have them done but Dr. Juan Carlos advised against it saying that he takes a more conservative approach and that he didn’t feel it was necessary at this time. I can’t help but feel that this type of candor and honesty in the business world is rare these days. Thank you Dr. Juan Carlos.

I have a very intense fear of dentists (which is likely why emergency arose** so when I say Dr. Juan is an absolutely amazing dentist i mean this with as much 'umpf' as one can have. I emailed him at an extremely ridiculous time in the morning with a dental emergency he responded with via email and by phone prior to the clinic office hours, with nothing less than extreme care and compassion. He squeezed me in for an appointment and effectively addressed my dental needs. His prices are very reasonable, especially coming from North America where dental care is by no means cheap. I have no words to express my gratitude for his dedication to practice!!! He is awesome.

Just came back from Medellin. I cannot recommend Dr. Juan Carlos Mejia Escalante and his team enough! I've been to dentists in the US, Europe and elsewhere and this is by far the best experience I've ever had. The dentists at Clinica Artica are all specialists and the equipment and materials used are world class. I would have paid any price for this kind of care but the fact that health care prices are much lower in Colombia is just icing on the cake. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need advice.

As an American, I invested 5 yrs. spanning the globe in search of the right dental specialist who knew how proper oral reconstruction could be accomplished precisely" the first time" at a reasonable price, and I'm very thankful that I found Dr. Juan Carlos Mejia Escalante! I felt immediately at ease upon meeting him, and his enthusiasm is contagious as is his zeal and passion in providing me with the best anticipated results! I will go back to see him for follow up visits and cleaning, whitening and maintenance. I couldn't be happier with my new smile!
