"Preliminary Implant"Joy, Florida, 05 Feb 13
"Upon my return from Costa Rica, I wrote a brief review of my dental experience with Dr. Cavallini's Clinic. I have a bit more time and would like to elaborate my impression.
After much research, and communication with 2 other dental clinics in Costa Rica, I chose Dr. Cavallini's clinic because of their more personal communication style and a multitude of positive reviews from previous patients. Rather than having a rep (i.e.. sales person), Dr. Marco (Cavallini Jr.) personally answered my emails, advised where to stay, was willing to work with my budget to get work done incrementally as finances would allow.
The plan was to get bone grafts for insertion of two implants, crowns, cleaning, and an extraction.
After examination, it was decided that bone grafts were unnecessary, a two on 1 implant post (instead of 2 separate), and gratis on the cleaning/extraction/2 temp teeth. As a result, this shaved off 1/2 of the initial estimated fee! My plan: return in 4-5 months for the permanent teeth and set more implants for further construction.
Had I been aware of the dental cost and quality of work, I would have done this long ago. I would have saved thousands of dollars combined with a feeling of security one can only get from being in the hands of a professional. Lesson learned, I plan to have the Cavallinis as my primary dentists with a goal of a full mouth restoration.
Staff was great, and the energy of the clinic was productive and upbeat. Dentists, technicians, assistants, all personable, professional, and generally a pleasure to be around. Definitely happy to have found this clinic, and as someone that (previously) associated dental work with anxiety, I can honestly say that because of Dr. Cavallini's clinic my perspective in Dental Care has been redefined."
