I gained a beautiful smileBarbara, Victoria, 17 Jun 09
I live in Canada and recently traveled to San Jose, Costa Rica, for dental treatment. I am commenting to express my sincere Thank You to Dr. Marco Munoz Cavallini sr., Dr. Marco Munoz Peralta jr and their staff for the wonderful work and warm, caring treatment I received in September 2007.
As promised, Drs. Munoz Cavallini and Munoz Peralta changed my life by performing a full mouth restoration. This included the initial consultation, 6 implants, 14 crowns, tooth reconstruction, 2 extractions, 2 veneers, 14 temporary teeth, panoramic x-rays, various study models, bite adjustments, cleaning and polishing. The total charges came to $7,500.00, (a fraction of the proposed charges 52,000.00 incl taxes! by my Canadian Dentists.) The Costa Rica dentists not only honored our initial verbal quote, but indeed gave me more than we originally bargained for. While the original quote at 7,500.00 stipulated 12 crowns, Dr. Marco Munoz Peralta ultimately gave me 14 crowns and two veneers for the same price: He wanted to ensure a perfect job.
And at last, I gained a beautiful smile and new self confidence. Not only that, but the entire proceedings began within 3 hours of my arrival at the airport and took, all in all, 12 working days rather than 8-months projected by my Canadian Dentist. In the late afternoon of my arrival, Dr. Munoz completed panoramic X-Rays and a study model and discussed the options with me. The following morning, Dr. Munoz performed the first four (absolutely painless!) implants and I ended up eating steak that same day.
