Me and my pearly whites have been travelling the world for a while, looking for the best country to retire cheap. The other day, I realized they weren’t that white anymore. Hmmmn….that’s not good. Time for a cleaning and whitening.
In Cali, Colombia a teeth cleaning and whitening was 500,000 COP ($250 CDN). (I went to several clinics for price checks and they all seemed pretty similar.)

This included

  • Cleaning
  • Scaling
  • Polishing
  • UV whitening/bleaching
  • Take home tray

What this didn’t include

  • X-rays
  • Dental examine (the dentist only does the whitening not the cleaning)

My dental clinic also didn’t speak English. (So, make sure you know that “Dolores” means pain!) The whole thing was pretty great. I showed up at 2pm for my 2pm appointment and actually had the cleaning begin at 2pm. For those of you who are used to waiting in a crowded appointment room, this is a super nice surprise.

They took Mastercard, and I was totally happy with my teeth cleaning and whitening. So, if you’re worried about getting a cleaning in Colombia? Don’t be.
