Over the course of seven days, I have incredibly beautiful teethHannan, US, 09 07 19

My wife and I spent no less than six or seven hours on the Internet and on the phone with various dental clinics in Costa Rica. I went through chemo and radiation about two years ago for tonsil cancer which killed my salivary glands which in turn killed my teeth. So I was shopping for 10 upper and lower crowns. I shopped prices in Florida and was floored, insane numbers! At the end of the day, after sending my x-rays to numerous dentists in Costa Rica, and having my wife speak to them in Spanish if they were not bilingual, I ended up honing in on Dental Pluss. We dealt with Gabby who was the liaison between the dental facility and the public. I really can’t put my finger on it, I simply had a good vibe dealing with this guy. No hard-sell, in fact, no sell at all! He “face timed” me through the facility and to the hotel where I would be staying across the street. He faced time me with the actual dentist and the on-site lab technician. Pretty much everyone in the entire clinic is bilingual, and, my dentist studied at NYU, and elsewhere. So after weeding through all the other clinics, I chose Dental Pluss. The reader's digest version is that this is a first class organization through and through. The dentist is a freaking perfectionist. Gabby picked up myself, my Wife and kids at the airport, arranged a great deal on a rental car, a fantastic hotel across the street at an incredible price and simply made himself available for a family out of the country on a dental excursion! So, after three visits, over the course of seven days, I have incredibly beautiful teeth. My friends and family are way impressed! As an aside, I told the staff that I wanted really white teeth but not to go over the line and have them look fake. That was a true concern. The lab technician, the Dentist, and Gabby, went through a series of photos, asked things like my height, (length of teeth!) etc. and basically explained the options in very lay terms. I learned that ridges on porcelain crowns reduce reflection, really! So there it is, I got off an aeroplane in Orlando three hours ago and I’m writing this review now because I told Gabby that I would do so, he kept up his end of the deal (excellent work) so I am doing likewise! This is by far the longest review I’ve ever written but deals with the most important issue I’ve dealt with when the provider was found on the Internet.

I can't say enough about this clinicSteven, US, 10 03 19

I think the best way to review my great experience with Costa Rica Dental Services is to paste the four successive posts I made on Facebook to share with my friends. I'm staying in Costa Rica and Panama for four months to avoid winter at home but the primary reason for coming is my dental work. December 6, 2018 I had my initial appointment with Dr Rodolfo Gadea at his Costa Rica Dental Services clinic and I'm highly impressed. Everything about it was excellent. The staff is very efficient and capable and the facility and equipment are state of the art. Better than my former dentist in Rochester, NY and more advanced x-ray technology than Summit Dental in Geneseo. Most importantly, I save $3000 on the cost of the work at home. I go back Monday for the two surgical extractions and bone grafts and will be fitted with a temporary bridge. I'll return in 8 weeks for my permanent 4 unit bridge. I couldn't be more confident and comfortable with this clinic. December 10, 2018 The first phase of my dental work is finished and went very well. Surgical extractions of the remaining foundations of my two upper front centre teeth followed by bone grafts in their place and shaving down the two teeth on either side for the anchor crowns of the four-unit permanent bridge. It was the most involved dental treatment I've ever had. I have a couple of follow-up checks over the next week. I'll return to the clinic in eight weeks, after the grafts have taken, to get my permanent, four crown bridge. It will be full ceramic zirconia which is better quality than the standard porcelain fused to metal crowns that dentists at home proposed. I was highly impressed with every part of the procedure. Dr Gadea is a master, his technicians are skilled and polished pros. My mouth is a bit sore but not a problem and I have medication. Surgical extractions are more involved than regular ones. The Dr. instructed me to consume only cold soft foods and drinks today so I've had several ice creams and smoothies and will enjoy a couple of beers later under doctor's orders. February 13, 2019 Monday I had my first of three appointments this week at Costa Rica Dental Services. Now that the two bone grafts from December have established themselves I needed an impression mould for my permanent four units upper front bridge which I'll receive Thursday. I am also having a three-unit bridge that had badly deteriorated replaced. One of the two supporting teeth required a root canal and both needed extensive buildup to prep for the new bridge. I spent three hours in the chair but it went very well. I am once more fully impressed with the skilful treatment I received from Dr Gadea, Dr Hernandez, and their technicians. The second bridge will cost an additional $2100, including the root canal and buildup, but it had to be done. It raises my total cost to $4300 but the work would have cost well over $10,000 at home so I've saved at least $6000, which is absolutely amazing. I'll report on the final results in a couple of days. February 15, 2019 I had my three and four crown permanent bridges put in yesterday and are very happy with their look, feel, and quality. They are full ceramic Zirconia which is highly durable and better than porcelain fused to metal crowns, which is the material I would have gotten at home. It's great to have my full biting and chewing capability back after more than a year of ongoing problems. Dr Gadea and his team are the best I've ever experienced and I saved $6000. I can't say enough about this clinic!

Gum Surgery  
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.
Dentist Consultation  
Dental Implants  
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.

This is an extremely well managed operationJohn, Stamford, 29 01 19

Before selecting Dr. Marco/Cavallini Clinic, I did considerable online research reading reviews and educational backgrounds of personnel. After narrowing the possible clinics down to 5 or 6, I sent copies of my x-rays. Each responded with price estimates. Dr. Marco/Cavallini was not the cheapest nor most expensive, but he differentiated himself by providing far more information regarding the procedure, timing, materials, etc. and answering all questions. I had 1 implant, 2 caps, and 2 teeth removed. The initial consultation at the Clinic and first tooth extraction for the implant was done by Dr. Marco although subsequent work was done by his colleagues, each of whom was extremely professional and personable. After my initial extraction, Dr. Marco made it clear not to hesitate to call should I have too much discomfort. The equipment is state of the art. The work required a total of 3 trips to Costa Rica. The only negative were the long waits since precise appointments were not possible. However, this did improve considerably between my first and last visit. As for responsiveness, Dr. Marco is amazing on this. Any inquiry would be answered by him personally within 24 hours. Everyone at the clinic couldn't be nicer nor more professional. This is an extremely well-managed operation. Highly recommend without hesitation.
