Were you pleased with the treatment?
I visited Costa Rica in February of 2011 as a new patient of Dr. Gadea at Costa Rica Dental Services. I selected Dr. Gadea after an internet search of dentists in the San Jose area and was very happy with my decision. If you are considering treatment from this clinic, or dental work on Costa Rica in general, here are a couple of points that may be helpful.
Dr. Gadea is a very skilled dentist. The purpose of my treatment was cosmetic, my treatment options and the costs were well explained, and the results were a bit better than I expected. The savings was well worth the trip, even if there was nothing to do in Costa Rica, but that is far from the case. I am a bit of a baby when it comes to dental work and pain, and I can honestly say I had about as pleasant of an experience as one can have at the dentist. I received 8 porcelain crowns, and saved at least half what I would have paid at home in the USA, including my hotel and air expenses!
Would you recommend the clinic?
Dr. Gadea speaks very good English and is a genuine friendly nice person. His staff does not speak English well, but is very professional and I was always greeted with a warm hello and smile.
The inside of the clinic is "typical" to a small practice in the USA, and the clinic building is a "typical" looking private business in San Pedro, not in a large dental or medical clinic. I really appreciate the personal attention I got here,I felt well cared for as a patient. The personalized skilled care I received was far more valuable to me than the false sense of security a large facility with an assembly line approach to treatment may provide. The inside of the clinic is clean, modern and typical.
Would you return for further treatment?
Yes, and I will return! This is the first online review I have ever written, but did so because I found other reviews here helpful and accurate, and realize the importance for someone making an informed decision when considering a trip like this.
