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.

I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinicJim, Buffalo, 22 Apr 16

Root Canal, Tooth Extraction, Bone Graft, Two Dental Implants. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinic that can take care of all your dental needs. The value was exceptional. I narrowed it down to three clinics eventually choosing Costa Rica Dental Services and Dr Gadea Ramirez. My emails were promptly answered, I was able to email X-rays for review prior to my trip and all my questions were answered promptly. Walking into the clinic for the first visit immediately put my mind at ease and I realized I had made the right choice. Make no mistake this is a modern up to date dental clinic staffed by highly professional personal. Dr Gadea personally goes over your treatment and reviews all the cost with you prior to treatment. His follow up is as exceptional as his work. How many times has a medical professional told you how much he loves his profession and then gives you his cell phone number in case you need to reach him over the weekend. Couldn't be happier with my decision. Going back in the fall to complete the treatment really looking forward to it.

Being able to eat normally and enjoy food again has been a blessingRoger, US, 06 Jan 16

I can't say enough about Doctor Gonzalez and her team. Its been 3 months since I completed my permanent full upper (all on six implants) to replace removable dentures I had made in the United States. The palate portion of the removable dentures were a huge obstacle to eating for more than a year. Normal foods were difficult to eat and taste was very much diminished. The use of adhesives was another reason I began my search for a prosthodontics specialist. Beginning in December 2014 and ending September 2015 I made 3 trips to Costa Rica. The first trip required a painless extraction and placement of 3 titanium implants in my lower arch. Unlike U.S. dentists Doctor Gonzalez anticipates and prescribes pain medication in advance of procedures. On my 2nd trip I had 6 more implants placed in my upper arch and spent two weeks in Jaco on the Pacific side. I could have had all the work completed on this trip but decided to let the 9 implants integrate with the bone for a few months. The integration went well and the work was completed in September 2015. Being able to eat normally and enjoy food again has been a blessing. In terms of the cost associated with having the work done in the United States vs Costa Rica, my cost were 50 cents on the dollar and that included my travel expenses. There may be a few Asian countries that are somewhat less but the travel expenses are higher. From the time I walked in the door I was treated with respect. Questions and treatment plans are answered and explained. These are experienced and well educated professionals who go the extra mile for the client. I sincerely believe they are some of the best.

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.
