Nogales Border Dentistry and Pharmacy Districts
The majority of dentist offices in Nogales, Mexico are located within walking distance of the international border, in a dental tourism zone that covers about a 1.25 square mile area – 1/4 of a mile from east to west, and 1/2 mile to the south.
The other district, Cortinez-Calles, is located two blocks to the east of the main tourism district and is directly accessible from the Morley Avenue pedestrian border crossing.
The city of Nogales also has more dentist offices further south in the city, mainly clustered farther south on Avenida Obregon and in the more upscale El Greco and Kennedy areas.

The Campillo dentistry district includes the largest dental office building in Nogales, 86 Campillo, located at the intersection of Calle Campillo and Avenida Obregon. The zone also includes dental offices located on Avenida Obregon north of Calle Campillo.
Avenida Obregon is the main north-south thoroughfare in the Nogales border tourism district. The street is a very comfortable place for a stroll among the curio shops, restaurants, pharmacies, and of course, dentist offices. The Obregon district begins at the corner of Calle Campillo and Avenida Obregon, and extends for several blocks to the south on Avenida Obregon.
The Cortinez-Calles dentistry district in Nogales, Mexico bears the names of the two streets that border the zone – Avenidas Ruiz Cortinez and Plutarco Elias Calles. The district is directly across the border from the Morley Avenue pedestrian crossing. It is also accessible on foot from the main border tourism district, either by crossing over the lanes of cross-border traffic on the pedestrian overpass, or by crossing the border traffic via a crosswalk.
Avenida Lopez Mateos is very easy to find. It is the road that originates north of the border as the southbound lane of Grand Avenue that enters into Mexico from Nogales, Arizona.
Dental clinics in the Lopez-Mateos border dentistry district are within walking distance from the border. After crossing the border on foot at the DeConcini crossing, take an immediate left turn at the end of the walkway and continue to walk south.
