We are considering having work done on our child's teeth in Belize as we make our move to spend more time down there and rather than having to travel back and forth around orthodontist appointment. Is there someone really good anyone can recommend? We would have the dental records sent down there to in order to continue where the first phase of work has been left off to date.

There are 2 dentists, located in Belize City that are always highly recommended.

My family uses Dr. Pedro Habet of The Dental Center He is a qualified orthodontist.

And there is the Heusner's Professional Dentistry clinic - Dr Adrian Heusner. I am unsure if he is an orthodontist but he is certainly popular and produces nice results.

Don't use Dr. Franklin Hernandez in San Pedro, he claims to be an orthodontist but he isn't.

Thnx Cayemen. Our place is in Placencia, so would probably incorporate a trip to the dentist with a trip to the city.
