Ballestero Dental Care

(877) 304-0812 ext: 12677 TORRE MEDICA PACIFIC PLAZA HOSPITAL CIMA GUANACASTE, Comunidad, 5001
Rating from 1 Review The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 May 18

Two dentists in Canada recommended dental implants in place of my lower teeth. I was on vacation in Costa Rica and decided to get another opinion. I first approached another dentist in Coco but was turned off by his manner. I then sent my file to Dr. Ballestero. From that moment it was clear that Dr. B was different! He phoned me in Canada to discuss the recommendations and ultimately he recommended I do not go the full implant route. Not only was the cost less than 1/4 of the quotes I received in Canada - but the time, and care, and concern were far superior to what I had been receiving or have ever received from a dentist. I had the work done in March 2018 and the experience was amazing. Dr. Ballestero's professionalism coupled with his caring manner are unmatched. If there was a way to give him more than 5 stars I would! I would happily recommend Dr. Ballestero to anyone considering any level of dental treatment.

North Pacific Dental

(888) 848-7639 ext: 67498 Tamarindo, Royal Palms Plaza # 13, Guanacaste
Rating from 21 Reviews He is a considerate and conscientious dentistEdward, US, 15 May 17

I had many teeth missing from my mouth. I contacted Dr. Diego and provided him a full CT scan of my mouth. He reviewed it and devised a treatment plan to stabilize my mouth and provided a complete estimate of the costs. It was considerably lower than those I had received in the U.S. After reading online about other patients experiences with Dr Diego, I decided to go forward with the recommended procedure. I chose Dr Diego and North Pacific Dental because of the online reviews, the cost of the procedure and the location of the clinic. He is a considerate and conscientious dentist with full experience of implant procedures. His English is very good and his oral surgeon Dr. Alejandro who performed the initial surgery and extraction was very professional. I would recommend Dr Diego without reservation. I would like to give him 5 stars however I am having some difficulty with my bite on the lower left which pinches my cheek a little. The ultimate responsibility to be fully informed lies with the patient. Be sure you understand what Dr Diego is proposing and the possible outcomes from the procedure.

Rating from 3 Reviews Loved their result plus they saved moneyAnonymous, Costa Rica, 02 Aug 14

Cavity, filling in my tooth First, they are very bi-lingual and I asked them to speak in my language - English. There was no problem. Dr. Lopez is very careful and explains each and every step. He truly does care for his patients. I live in the area and had minor work completed, but before my appointment was a patient from the US have major surgery and loved their result plus they saved money. The location is near a beach in Costa Rica and the out of town guests can enjoy some beach time while they heal.
