We have all the information you need about public and private Costa Rican dental clinics. Compare all the dentists and contact the dentist in Costa Rica who's right for you.

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.

"These people are lovely and very competent"Jane, Dubuque, Iowa, 16 Jul 14
"We were so pleased with the care we received! Francisco and Geovanna and Dr. Lara were all so welcoming, going out of their way for us. I had a three part bridge, another crown, and a few fillings. My husband came expecting to have a crown, root planning, etc. Everything was as quoted and well done, except for one thing - they were honest enough to tell my husband he didn't really need all the work his US dentist told him he needed. Honesty! Costa Rica Dental Lab has my loyalty and appreciation for being so good to us. I highly recommend them and see no reason to have any more US dental experiences. These people are lovely and very competent. In addition, our US dental insurance reimbursed 50% of their already low charges!"

"Very pleased with the results"Martin, US, 22 Jul 14
"We went to Dr. Garita for numerous implants and crowns. We were very pleased with the results. We travel to Costa Rica often so the time was not a problem generally. They were very helpful in working with our schedule. With so much work there were, of course, minor adjustments needed. They took care of them promptly and professionally. On one of the trips they picked my wife up from the airport since I was not coming until the next day. Dr. Garita performed the implant surgery and was very good. Dr. Alvarado did most of the crown work and he was extraordinary. Ana, Elias and the rest of the staff were always very helpful. Price was very fair for the quality. State of the art facility."
We can help you save substantial expense while providing you with the same high quality service you have come to expect in your own country. Over the past few decades, Costa Rica and plastic surgery have been become almost interchangeable. For the wealthy who wish to have their surgery in private, Costa Rica has become an internationally recognized center for high quality cosmetic surgery. Many consider it the perfect place to have surgery due to its almost perfect weather and the peaceful natural surroundings in which to recuperate. It is also less expensive. Our typical client is the individual who expects the very best in dental cosmetic surgery but is smart enough to know you don’t have to pay Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist prices to get the same great personal attention and quality results. Our experience is recognized and appreciated by many in the television industry. In the area of cosmetic surgery Costa Rica has rocketed to the forefront as a haven, where the famous and wealthy of the world have their bodies "nipped" and "tucked" in private by the world's best surgeons. The same is true of cosmetic dentistry. We are privileged to care for some very famous teeth and we know how to give you that great smile you were meant to have.
