No discomfort at all during the procedureDot, US, 15 01 16

I was here in Tamarindo last year for two months, and our neighbors were speaking about the dentist (Dr. Diego) they found here. They live here full time. This year when we decided to return to Costa Rica for three months, I asked my dentist back home in the US for my current xrays as well as a copy of their recommended treatment plan. I had my first appointment with Dr. Diego yesterday; he did two teeth which needed 4-surface filling replacements. The experience was positive in every way. I had no discomfort whatsoever during the procedure, and none after he was done. The savings from my dentist back home was phenomenal; and I highly recommend this dental clinic. I will be returning in another month to have two more fillings replaced.

Ballestero Dental Care - Dental Clinic in Costa Rica

The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 05 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.

Exceptional skills and level of careRok, Slovenia, 11 12 16

I got a bad toothache and earache soon after my trip in Costa Rica began. Since I was in the Playa del Coco area and in need of dental treatment someone recommended LS Dental. After inital consultation dr. Lopez advised an extraction of my molar wisdom tooth which was badly decayed and was causing an infection. The procedure was quick, totally painless and cheap. Exceptional skills and level of care. Thank you very much, you may just saved my holidays. My overall experience was nothing but great. Very professional and kind staff, highly knowledgeable. Recommended!
