Initial Contact with Dr. Morales's office
I have made my initial contact with Dr. Morales's office and have obtained an appointment date of my choosing at the end of April. Now it's a matter of wait-and-see.

After several helpful e-mails with Torrie Crocker in San Diego (Bykerchyck) about Dr. Javier Morales's dental work and a number of helpful, informative forum posts about Dr. Morales in Tijuana, Mexico, I have decided to go ahead and get an appointment with Dr. Morales to have my dental cleanup. I have five molar amalgam fillings, one gold crown atop a root canal, and four possible cavitation sites. I have elected to receive a preliminary lymphatic massage, IV conscious sedation, and the vitamin C IV drip. My appointment is at the end of April, 2005.
I was not able to do much research pertaining to American Dentists and their prices except for the few people who have been willing to name names and prices about their own experiences, so I see a real need in this area. I e-mailed one dentist in Houston using six different e-mail addresses that he had used over the years. Finally, I got a response, but none of my questions were answered. I had to call to have a phone consultation to get my questions answered. Rather than spend countless hours talking to numerous dental offices, trying to acertain if they even understand the Huggins protocol in mercury removal, let alone try to get a "sight-unseen" estimate or even a price list for their common procedures, I decided to go with a man who has a straightforward consultant who freely shares all the pertinent information up front on her website. This may turn out to be the biggest blessing of my life...or the worst curse.
There is a certain amount of trust involved when you take a stanger's word at face value. I'm taking Torrie Crocker's word at face value. I'm trusting that the estimate and the detailed information that she has given me concerning Dr. Morales's office is, in fact, accurate. Of course I'm scared. I'm going to Tijuana, Mexico, and submitting to 3 1/2 hours of conscious sedation, for crying-out-loud! I'd be crazy to not be scared. Is this some kind of scam? Is this a ploy to kidnap me and rob and murder me? (Do you really think I'd be going if I thought so???) Is Dr. Morales competent? Is his office staff competent? Do I really have an appointment with the Dr. Morales that I think I do? So many questions. So many uncertainties. And then there are the people at home to contend with. I have convinced my husband. I have almost convinced my son, who is 17 and full of questions, but I am not telling anyone outside my immediate family until the deed is already done, to avoid constantly having to defend myself. However, the plane reservations have been made and paid for, as have the hotel reservations. I am indeed the guinea pig for untold numbers who will follow. I must press on. If I didn't have the few scraps of testimonies and the prayers of the many to depend on, I might give up in despair before I even get there...
