A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report rated Costa Rica’s health system above that of the USA*. A high level of professional training and an impressive public healthcare system reflect in the private care available to Medical Tourists. Once known mainly for its acclaimed promotion of ecotourism, dentistry in Costa Rica is now gaining significant international recognition.

A study at the University of Costa Rica showed that almost 14% of visitors to the country come in search of its medical expertise. The well-educated, tech-savvy population is gaining Costa Rica the reputation of a Central American 'Singapore', with industry analysts putting it in the top three offshore development destinations for American companies along with China and India.

Professional Aftercare

One of the most interesting aspects of the Medical Tourism industry in Costa Rica is in the area of recuperation facilities. While other destinations offer high quality hotels and accommodation, Costa Rica goes a bit further. Once a treatment has been completed, patients are able to check into dedicated recuperation centres. These centres have excellent accommodation and relaxation facilities but also provide qualified nurses and medical workers to help monitor their client’s condition and keep doctors updated on the recovery progress.

Regional benefits

Most doctors in Costa Rica spend much of their time maintaining the country’s excellent public healthcare system. Revenue from the treatment of foreign patients enables local medical specialists to continue devoting their resources to the local healthcare. Benefits are mutual, with skills passing between the two sectors. In addition to dental and cosmetic practice the Medical Tourism boom is enabling corrective eye surgery clinics to open and encourage hospitals — such as CIMA Hospital San Jose — to seek Joint Commission International certification.

Dentists in Costa Rica have the advantage of being able to offer patients dedicated recuperation centres in sun-filled tropical surroundings. As the regions leading healthcare destination it attracts patients from the U.S as well as neighbouring countries to take advantage of the low-cost, high-quality dental care available.

The Colegio De Cirujanos Dentistas overseas all Costa Rica's dental practices. It's practices conform to the very highest standards represented in world dentistry. A lengthy college career of 6 years is followed by a commitment to continuing education over the entire course of a dentist's career. To benefit from research and developments in US dentistry many Costa Rican dentists maintain not only local affiliations but membership of the American Dental Association (ADA) and of those US dental associations connected to the specialties they practice.

A combination of lower local wages and costs allow Costa Rican dentists to operate with the same materials and equipment as their North American counterparts at far lower prices. The same implant that might cost $2000 or more in the US can cost under $1000 in Costa Rica. Our most popular destination in Costa Rica is San Jose and San Pedro.

You can also consider Mexico for your dental needs, where for similarly low price the same quality treatments are offered.

Dentists in Costa Rica - Qualifications

Costa Rica’s Board of Dental Surgeons, Public and Private Dental Universities, Professional Associations and Specialist Boards, all work together to oversee and maintain the high quality of dentistry in Costa Rica. The Board of Dental Surgeons governs all practising dentists in the country with continuing education required for all members. Regular inspections of clinics are carried out by the National Health Department to ensure strict standards of sterilisation and health are maintained.

Formal training for all Costa Rican dentists begins in university where students undergo six years of education from the University of Costa Rica or similar courses from various private universities. Many graduates then travel abroad to further their dental knowledge in a specific area of dentistry.

Practicing dentists in Costa Rica receive the same education, have access to the same hi-tech medical equipment and follow the same Board Certification Requirements as a dentist in the United States, Canada or Europe. A reputable dental practice in Costa Rica will be a member of the American Dental Association, the international authority providing continuing education and teaching in the advancement of Dental Science.

For those interested in cosmetic dental treatment, look for clinics who belong to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an organisation which sets standards of excellence in cosmetic dentistry. This is the largest association of its kind in the world with over 7000 practitioners in 60 countries.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 28 Reviews The Root Canal, Teeth Cleaning and Crown procedures were pain freeDevin, La Honda, 09 Sep 16

I had 3 root canals, and crowns (molars), and a cleaning, that needed to be done and I couldn't afford to have the work done in the United States, even at low income discount rates. It was scary having work done in a foreign country but everything turned out great! It was only $2000 and comparable services around here were at around $6000. It was great, all of the work was done in a week, Dr. Gadea was very professional, and the procedure was pain free and done with modern equipment. I couldn't be happier with the quality of work. It was quick, painless and I really feel like my crowns are VERY high quality. I will be back for all of my future dental work, you can count on that! If you're wondering if it's worth the risk to travel to a new country to get a break on dental services it totally is.

***We do not provide Zirconia Implants*** The dental implants are artificial roots that can be place in the maxilla or in the mandible creating a solid base where it can be perform either individual or a whole mouth restoration. The implants will allow you to chew, smile and talk secure and comfortable. This is the most natural, new and healthy way to replace lost teeth.The dental implants are made of titanium because it doesn’t reject tissues and fits perfectly with the bone.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 60 Reviews I am extremely satisfiedMike, US, 27 Mar 17

I had 6 first stage implants by Dr. Marco (the younger). He was very professional and took time to explain all the details and address my concerns. They took many CT scans and panoramas after each treatment to insure quality. He also had the scans on screen in front of him to consult while he did the implants. Super terrific human being and cared about how I felt and my comfort. I never felt like a cog or part of a mill, even though his office is very busy and might seem like a "churn them out fast" operation; but it's not. I am extremely satisfied and recommend him to everyone who needs more than just a filling. Ultra modern clinic, with lab on premises. If they need to adjust or re-make a crown, there is virtually no wait time (a few hours). And since it is a busy clinic, I recommend you stay at Casa Marco, just a flight up. You can wait in your hotel room until your appointment is ready (since he runs late -- always). And staying there, you never need to leave the building because you can order out.

Rating from 28 Reviews Fair and professionalTom, Costa Rica, 14 Jun 17

I was told by my young dentist in the states that I needed three crowns. Dr. Coto did digital x-rays and could find no such needs and told me so. He did not try to make money off me unnecessarily. Had digital x-rays, cleaning, and erosion cavity filled for under 200 dollars! . Fair and Professional.
