The following work was suggested in a visit to local dentist 4/7/2011. Please quote on what it would cost through you. I will be the chaplain assigned to the NCL Star on a cruise leaving LA April 23 and thought I would make an appointment for exam when docked there, but your port has been dropped because of violence, so this form of communication, along with question about safety, means of travel nowadays and suggestions about accommodations and time necessary for work.

I have CIGNA Dental Insurance, Plan ID #3214688 (1-800-244-6224)( US phone #) which pays for basic work but has a yearly limit on caps, etc. I do not know whether it covers work outside the US. All other work would be cash (if necessary) or VISA (preferable).
Again, a current opinion of travel safety, time expenditures (I have spent various times in Mexico, am not a beach fan, would probably not sight-see but would want work done as quickly as possible) would be greatly appreciated.
