Americans often travel south to Mexico for more affordable health care options, but with President Donald Trump's threats to close the border, some patients have been wary of heading to their usual appointments. One dentist in Mexico says the border dispute is having an impact on his bottom line.
"I know that they'll probably do the same job, you know, either way, it's just cheaper in Juarez," says traveler Melody Pedroza.
"From all over the U.S. actually, as far as Alaska," describes Dr. Ernesto Moran, a dentist based in Juarez, Mexico. "And they come over because they can find better prices. They can have quality dentistry for a fraction of the price."
The President's comments are causing travelers to be fearful of keeping their appointments in Mexico and risk being locked out of the U.S.
Dr. Moran says wait times at the border caused by shifts in U.S. Customs and Border Protection staff has affected the attendance of patients to his office.
"We usually ask them to walk across, but even those lines have been big," says Moran. "And we've been having an a lot of cancellations."
