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.

Costa Rica Dental Services

Rating from 27 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. At Costa Rica Dental Services we use only the best implants on the market such as ZIMMER, 3i or MIS.

Rating from 27 Reviews Looking to get GREAT dental work at an affordable price!Arturo, Davenport, 25 Jan 15

Dental Crowns, I contacted Dr. Cotos office and spoke with Olger Gonzalez regarding some dental work that I needed to get done, They were very attentive and knowledgable regarding the treatment that I wanted to get done. In Florida I received a finalized treatment plan which was for three veneers and abutment/crown for an implant which was going to cost me about $7000. Dr.Cotos office did it for far less approximately $1400. Once I got to Costa Rica I decided to do some preliminary procedures done as well like a root canal ($350) and 4 fillings ($250) since the prices were very affordable. Alexander Montero, which is the general orthodontist did the root canal and the fillings, he was fantastic! Very professional, and made the entire procedure pain free. Dr. Coto did the crowns afterwards and I was very pleased with the end results. The staff is very professional very knowledgable and their resources, such as materials and technology are up to modern standards. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone looking to get GREAT dental work at an affordable price!

Rating from 16 Reviews A professional consultLinda, Ottawa, Ontario, 02 Jun 15

We came from Canada hoping to get major dental work done by Dr. Diego. Ùnfortunately, after an hour long consultation, it was decided not to have it done. Dr. Diego is a fabulous dentist and took his time explaining to us what he felt would be the proper procedure to follow for our needs. We returned to Canada disappointed but so thankful for his honesty. Às it turned out he was absolutely right. I would revisit Dr. Diego in a heart beat and highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Diego for your professional consult and experience. Linda Chandler Fabulous and honest. Go to this dentist in Villa Real and you won't be disappointed. Equipment is of the highest standard, office was spotless. I chose this clinic entirely on the reviews. Well worth the trip.
