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 All in all a very professional teamGareth, houston, 21 May 17

I visited Dr. Diego Vernava to replace a 15-year old partial denture with an "All on 4” dental implant. Communication with Dr. Diego was always prompt and informative whether by email or in person. Dr. Diego is an extremely likable guy who, with his easy-going manner, has a talent for putting his patients at ease. Our first face-to-face meeting was in February 2017 where he examined my teeth, recommended the “All on 4” treatment and arranged for me to get a CT Scan to check bone loss in my upper jaw. The next visit, two months later in late April / early May 2017, involved multiple appointments over an 11-day span where I had 10 teeth extracted, four titanium posts installed, all culminating in the fitting of the dental implant. The entire 2-hour process was flawlessly executed and thanks to local anesthesia, completely painless. Following the extractions and the drilling of the post holes and installation of posts, Dr. Diego prescribed some pain killers in case I experienced some pain – incredibly, I had no need to take them. I experienced some mild discomfort due to swelling, but medication was prescribed to deal with that and it did so effectively. The surgical process itself was conducted by Dr. Alejandro Marin and assistant surgeon Dr. Joaquin Vega who flew in from the capital, San Jose. They went to great lengths to make sure I was comfortable and feeling no pain. Since returning to Houston, other than sounding a little like Sean Connery, I have had no problems with my new dentures and assume that my speech will adapt to them in time. After checking pricing for the same process in Houston I would conclude that this is great value for money since it was a third of the price I would have paid here. I should add that my wife was so impressed with Dr. Diego that she too decided to have him replace a crown which he did for a reasonable price. I found Dr. Diego on the web and selected him based on reviews I read. The North Pacific Dental office, only a 10 minute drive from Tamarindo, is clean, air-conditioned and well-equipped. I would have absolutely no reservations recommending North Pacific Dental for any dental needs. All in all a very professional team.

LS Dental Costa Rica

Rating from 4 Reviews The entire staff are kind, gentle, compassionate and explain every step of the wayBetsy, US, 24 Jun 18

Due to a long story, I don't need to go into, I needed extensive dental work. I had an appointment and evaluation with Dr. Lopez in February 2018. At that time I decided to begin my work. I just returned (June) from the completion of my work, which included a bottom All on Four ( five in my case) and upper root canals, crowns and veneers. The results are amazing. Dr. Lopez and the entire staff are kind, gentle, compassionate and explain every step of the way. The entire cost was a small fraction of what the same would have cost in the US. Even with travel expenses, the price was incredible. Not to mention, a great place to recover from any work. I cannot recommend highly enough. Top rating!
