"I am absolutely happy"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 10 Mar 2013 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Porcelain Crown, Porcelain Veneers
porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns

After reading a lot of reviews for dental service I made my choice with Doctor Gadea dental clinic in San Jose. I set appointment with Dr. Gadea in February 2013. Rehabilitation included 11 veneers, 3 porcelain crowns and 2 cups over existing implants. I am very happy with the result I got. My teeth look very natural, I tried to avoid very bright colour of veneers and wanted them to be translucent like natural teeth are. Doctor Gadea did excellent job, I am absolutely happy with my new smile. I got temporary teeth between 2 appointments while I was travelling in CR with my family. During that week I also did not have any concerns, just was careful with dense food.It was hard decision for me, my dentist in Seattle did not recommend to get this treatment in Costa Rica. Of course, I would spend 65% more doing it in my home town! On the other hand I realised that it might be a big risk if the dentist you choose is not good in restorative / cosmetic treatment. I am happy I made right choice, I received great service for very affordable price. Thank you, Doctor Gadea and your staff for excellent job! I got a lot of complements upon my return to US. I highly recommend Dr. Gadea clinic to everyone who needs restorative / cosmetic service.

"They are professional, compassionate and most importantly genuine"
100%Reviewed 10 Sep 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Dental Crowns, Temporary Bridge
My teeth were in poor condition from years of sports, smoking and neglect. After obtaining different quotes and treatment options including implants in Canada, all unaffordable, I decided to research medical tourism. Costa Rica came highly recommended. Dr. Gadea 's clinic stood out for me including previous testimonials. I contacted the clinic and received a quick response. Juan instructed me to forward my panoramic X-ray and Dr. Gadea himself called me back.

We discussed my detailed treatment plan that had been e-mailed to me. His knowledge, genuine interest, and reassuring nature convinced me to move forward. Juan made all the arrangements including picking us up at the airport after a 2 day weather delay. Everything was rearranged. Nervously walking into the clinic I was immediately impressed. Laura warmly welcomed us. Returning patients from New York began extolling how they LOVED Dr. Gadea and that I had made a great choice. After an examination and scan using modern equipment, Dr. Gadea excitedly informed me that I didn't need to lose all of my remaining teeth.

We reworked a treatment plan with implants, crowns and a temporary bridge. After the surgery, I was pain-free with no swelling. I saved a minimum 40% from the different quotes I received in Canada. I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Gadea and his staff. They are professional, accommodating, compassionate and most importantly they are genuine. They really do care. Looking forward to returning to beautiful Costa Rica soon for my new teeth. Thank you again, Dr. Gadea.

Excellent.

"Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !"
100%Reviewed 12 Dec 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dental Implants, Bone Graft, Veneers, Dental Crowns
8 Extractions, 8 Implants with bone grafts, 5 veneers, 6 Crowns

This is a follow up to my first January treatment, when Dr. Gadea extracted 8 teeth and implanted the stems of the 8 implants with bone grafts. I came back in August, after the bone grafts and implant stems were secure and solid, to have the remainder of the work done. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gadea and his team.I experienced no pain during the entire process due to his use of Novocaine and non opioid pain pills. He was meticulous in his work, even sending back to the lab one of the porcelain tops of the implants that he felt fit poorly. Even though the remaining work only took appointments during a four day period, I would suggest to anyone who has traveled to have work done, to stay an extra 5-6 days to make sure the fit is correct with no pain. I wanted a small adjustment for an area that I thought was too high and he took care of it immediately. Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !

"I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!"
100%Reviewed 20 Oct 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Veneers
It is my hope to provide the reader comfort and reassurance in making this important decision. If you are considering dental treatment in Costa Rica, please read this carefully. For many years I pursed smile enhancement and considered many options. After many attempts to whiten my teeth with over the counter treatments, and subsequent disappointments in the results, I searched for professional help and decided to meet with Dr. Gadea for veneers, I am so glad I did!
Admittedly, it was concerning to travel outside the US for medical treatment. However, after researching credentials I made the decision. While in the lobby waiting for my appointment, I conversed with other Americans who also traveled to see Dr. Gadea and they shared their positive experiences. My confidence was reinforced when they stated they had returned for further treatments; it was very reassuring to me.
After recently seeing my local dentist for routine cleaning my dentist complemented the work of Dr. Gadea and stated it appeared the work was done by a US dentist. When I shared the price for the work provided, he was really impressed.

The value provided for the work performed is excellent.
In conclusion, put your mind at ease (as much as you can), make the right choice, as I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!

Thank you,
Happy Patient from Florida

"The Root Canal, Teeth Cleaning and Crown procedures were pain free"
100%Reviewed 09 Sep 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Teeth Cleaning
I had 3 root canals, and crowns (molars), and a cleaning, that needed to be done and I couldn't afford to have the work done in the United States, even at low income discount rates. It was scary having work done in a foreign country but everything turned out great! It was only $2000 and comparable services around here were at around $6000.

It was great, all of the work was done in a week, Dr. Gadea was very professional, and the procedure was pain free and done with modern equipment. I couldn't be happier with the quality of work. It was quick, painless and I really feel like my crowns are VERY high quality. I will be back for all of my future dental work, you can count on that! If you're wondering if it's worth the risk to travel to a new country to get a break on dental services it totally is.

"I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinic"
100%Reviewed 22 Apr 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Extractions, Bone Graft, Dental Implants
Root Canal, Tooth Extraction, Bone Graft, Two Dental Implants. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a first class clinic that can take care of all your dental needs. The value was exceptional.

I narrowed it down to three clinics eventually choosing Costa Rica Dental Services and Dr Gadea Ramirez. My emails were promptly answered, I was able to email X-rays for review prior to my trip and all my questions were answered promptly. Walking into the clinic for the first visit immediately put my mind at ease and I realized I had made the right choice. Make no mistake this is a modern up to date dental clinic staffed by highly professional personal. Dr Gadea personally goes over your treatment and reviews all the cost with you prior to treatment. His follow up is as exceptional as his work. How many times has a medical professional told you how much he loves his profession and then gives you his cell phone number in case you need to reach him over the weekend. Couldn't be happier with my decision. Going back in the fall to complete the treatment really looking forward to it.

"Very professional bedside manner."
100%Reviewed 21 Jan 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dental Implants, Bone Graft, Veneers, Dental Crowns
I went to Dr. Gadea for extensive dental work. He extracted eight teeth and implanted eight titanium implants (posts). He also did extensive bone grafting and suturing. I received temporary dentures until I return in six months to have abutments and crowns put on the eight posts, and have five veneers and six more traditional crowns put in. This was a good value versus the costs in the United States.

I chose Dr. Gadea after some significant due diligence. His reviews were solid, his education (Costa Rica and USA) was solid, ADA Member with hundreds if not thousands of implants having been performed was solid, teaches and presents case studies, are all solid. Then I sent him my X-rays, and we talked in length by phone to discuss my treatment. Dr. Gadea has a very professional bedside manner. I booked the appointment and flew down. His office is brand new (11/15). He has the latest in equipment. I was particularly impressed with his handheld X-ray device that instantly transmits the images to his laptop with one tenth of the radiation of standard X-ray equipment. His assistant, Danielle, was very proficient and pleasant. His front of the office manager, Laura, was equally skilled at her job. She routinely arranges transportation for me. Both Dr. Gadea and Danielle were gowned head to toe and worked in a very good sterile field. They even draped my mouth. I experienced only minimal pain, as Dr. Gadea likes to manage anaesthesia and meds to lessen any potential pain. I was given antibiotics (both systemic and topical), inflammatory medicine, and pain and swelling medication. I healed very fast and experienced minimal pain. All in all, a great experience! I look forward to returning this summer to complete my treatment!

"He is personable, knowledgeable, and highly skilled."
100%Reviewed 14 Oct 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Veneers, Dental Crowns
Extensive work including crowns, root canals, and veneers.

Dr. Gadea's competence is unquestioned. He is personable, knowledgeable, highly skilled, and has a staff that equals his professionalism. This man is a dental artist. Do not let his "lower than other competitor's rates" make you think he offers a lesser quality of service. His ability is of the highest standards. I just wish he would move to Florida and set up a clinic there so I could have a trustworthy dentist who does not let greed become his foremost motivation. He and his staff performed extensive work including crowns, root canals, and veneers to close big gaps in my smile. I find myself smiling a lot more in front of others without concern or embarrassment. Thank you, Dr. Gadea, for your work and for just being a nice person

"Very good"
100%Reviewed 02 Apr 2014 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Bridges
Cantilever bridge

I was more than impressed with the professionalism, high level of expertise of Dr Gadea (highest credentials and post-doctoral training received through UCLA). All web verifiable.

The cantilever bridge looks so great, and feels great. My Dentist in NYC tried to get me to have an implant. So glad I made the decision I did.

Also Dr G's English was very good, as were the 'bedside manner' and courtesy of the staff.

Ive been back twice and will continue with Dr Gadea for the foreseeable future.

If you are having doubts, don't. You will thank me.

***We do not provide Zirconia Implants*** The dental implants are artificial roots that can be place in the maxilla or in the mandible creating a solid base where it can be perform either individual or a whole mouth restoration. The implants will allow you to chew, smile and talk secure and comfortable. This is the most natural, new and healthy way to replace lost teeth.The dental implants are made of titanium because it doesn’t reject tissues and fits perfectly with the bone. At Costa Rica Dental Services we use only the best implants on the market such as ZIMMER, 3i or MIS.

Fillings
The fillings is a process that eliminates decays from affected teeth and replaces the lost structure with healing material that will recover the original shape and functions. The white fillings are made with a special resin that can be as the same color of the tooth so nobody knows the difference; this is a huge advantage because it looks much better than black fillings or amalgams. The new resins are free of mercury, which solves another big problem present in traditional amalgams

Sometimes gums are stain or are not well proportionate and it’s becomes difficult to show them in public. Having big gums, small or even too large teeth are aesthetic problems that some people face all the time and even having them healthy doesn’t mean they can show them how they would like to. The esthetic gums surgery allows you to correct pigmentation problems, get the right level to your gums and get even the space between teeth, providing your mouth a healthiest look and a better function.
