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.

"The cost savings cannot be denied"gretchen, US, 05 Dec 09
"At first I was apprehensive to have so much dental work done in another country, but it has been over a month with no problems and the cost savings cannot be denied! This clinic has the advantage of the fast turn-around time for the porcelain crowns and veneers; they were able to fit in the two appointments in only four business days. They have their own in-house lab. Most others have a minimum of 6-10 business days for your finished product from the lab. I did have to pay $100 extra for "rush" fee for the lab but the price savings was well worth it, considering extra expenses with staying in the country longer just to wait for my crowns and veneers to be ready. I had a total of eleven veneers, two crowns, and two fillings, all for about $4.200. "

"Highly recommend"Joshua, San Francisco de Dos Rios, 03 Apr 13
"I had an implant done on a single tooth. It went very well. The day of the appointment Dr. Calvo had his driver pick me up at my house and bring me home. Then three days later he picked me up and take me home when I had the crown put in. Having the driver pick me up was great, because usually we have to take public transportation. Dr. Calvo was great and very professional. The tooth looks really good, and the color matches perfectly. I highly recommend Dr. Calvo for any dental work you need done!"

"Great people, highly skilled and as good or better than any I had in the States. Estimates were right on and at least 2/3rds less than I would have paid in Seattle. Quick and painless too! Even with the distance and travel time, these guys are now my regular dentist. The Out of Bounds B&B next door is also highly recommended (and convenient). Escazu is crowded and noisy, though better than San Jose, and not representative of the best of Costa Rica- but a good starting point for further exploration."

"Dental implants and overdentures"Les, Costa Rica, 29 Oct 11
"My experience with North Pacific Dental is one I would be willing to share with anyone. From the very first appointment to the boarding of the plane to return home was amazing. My first appointment consisted of X-rays and moldings of my mouth for the teeth that would be later implanted. Having seen the X-rays was determined that I needed dental implants, bone augmentation and sinus lift. The experience was unbelievable the work was so professional and the concern as to how I was holding up to the procedure was great. After all the screws were in there still was no pain and I began the two day wait for the dentures to be applied. The professionalism of the setting of my new teeth and now the great smile that I have will never be forgotten and i recommend all my coworkers and family that need dental work similar to mine to go to North Pacific Dental in Tamarindo Costa Rica , there work there is second to none, to procedures you will find in Canada or the USA, I have experienced both, and I am now a firm believer that North Pacific Dental has the best there is."

"Great experiences"George, Staten Island, NY, 07 Apr 13
"Did not visit this time, but previously had several great experiences."
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.

Meza Dental Care Clinic

(888) 848-7639 ext: 24290Torres del Campo Office Center, Second Tower, Second Floor, Barrio Tournon, San
"Excellent in all aspects!"William, US, 24 Nov 14
"I sent my info and X-rays, etc. to Dr. Meza who is UCLA trained and accredited by 2 US accreditation programs. I have never had a dentist call me before and talk to me on the phone for 10 minutes about my teeth and what he thinks should be done. He speaks better English than I do! Then I corresponded by email with Howard, who has an MBA from Johns Hopkins and was a dental tourist 10 years ago and just liked Costa Rica and stayed. He was great setting me up with the time and helping me with the lodging, etc. So now to the costs. What would have cost me 55-60K up in the US, ended up costing me 18K down there! I am 60 years old and have had extensive dental work in my past here in the US, but have never encountered the professionalism and artistry that Dr. Meza and his staff provided. Their attention to detail was amazing. Dr. Irene Castro is a phenomenon! And the other assistant is a dentist as well (Dr. Santa Maria)! At times I had 3 dentists all in the same room working on my teeth (Dr. Meza was my primary dentist with Dr. Castro doing some of the other work). Amazing! I am not a shill or a marketing person. I am a real life medical professional with 37 years of experience and a business entrepreneur. I did not have to wait more than 5 minutes to be called back and they went right to work. I had oral surgery to remove a tooth, sinus augmentation, had 4 implants and 13 crowns replaced and 4 root canals and more. Excellent in all aspects! Had a great vacation in Manuel Antonio too!"
