After 3 visits I left with a new smile and teeth I could rely on

5 50 Dental Crowns, Root Canals, Bone Graft, Dental Implants • Paid: $15000

World-class. My experience with Star Dental is the entire staff is extraordinarily sensitive, smart /professional and even fun. It's as if they read my mind and anticipated my fears from beginning to end. Basically, they get it: You are going to another country to spend a lot of money and put yourself at the mercy of people you haven't met.

All I can say is I got 3 implants, 4 crowns, 4 root canals, 2 BONE graft surgeries, and 3 cavities when I arrived. After 3 visits I left with a new smile and teeth I could rely on. Even after the hotel, flight, food-, etc. I still saved thousands compared to USA dental quotes. I did this without sacrificing an ounce of expertise. I fact I believe Star Dental is better than average high-end dental offices in USA.

I wouldn't hesitate to come back to Costa Rica to see them even for a check-up instead of a USA dentist. . I have been recommending them to anyone who asks, and a bunch of people have asked how I did it! There were no unpleasant or significant surprises from my perspective. This is key because a decision this big is all about trust right? It is for me. Their process starts addressing this long before you get there. In my view, they get full credit for having created an affordable and effective solution to my complicated dental mess that I was too scared to deal with for years.

It was a pleasure to help you restore your smile, FireDean. Thank you for trusting us, We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with our team with the people in your life. We look forward to helping them in the future.

I could not be more pleased with how things turned out

5 50 All-on-4 Dental Implants

I am extremely pleased with the results of the dental work performed at Star Dental. From my first contact with the US patient coordinator who helped with flights and lodging to the absolute professionalism of the Doctors and staff, every step of the process was transparent and honest. In terms of cost the savings were substantial. The price I was quoted at the start was the exact price I paid. Throughout the process all my questions and concerns were answered and explained. Most importantly the doctors and staff cared deeply about my outcome. I could not be more pleased with how things turned out. To anyone considering implant surgery I urge you to contact Star Dental.

Treated by: Dr Natalia Guillen

Thank you so much, Jeff for your kind words. We loved working with you. Enjoy your new smile! - Dr. Natalia Guillen and the STAR Dental Team

Feel I had the greatest care in the world

5 50 All-on-4 Dental Implants

I couldn't be more pleased with Star Dental, friendly and accommodating and above all Dr Carolina Cespedes is a perfectionist. They picked me up at the airport, I had a great apartment at a 4-star hotel at a great rate. Provided a driver for all appointments who went out of his way to accommodate me, stopping by the store etc. I had an "All on 4" for a lot less than a U.S. price, done by bank draft that was prearranged with my bank. It was not done until I called to initiate it from the office in Costa Rica. I highly recommend Star Dental and feel I had the greatest care in the world. Dr Carolina Cespedes.

The clinic was clean and was well organized

4.5 50 Dental Crowns

In September 2019, I had two new crowns placed by Dr Sevilla. Although the lab had to rework one of the crowns, Dr Sevilla did a careful and conscientious job of ensuring that the crowns fit properly. The clinic was clean and was well organized. On my next visit to Costa Rica, I expect to do more dental work at Star Clinic and recommend Dr Sevilla without reservation.

We rested, enjoyed ourselves and came back home happier than ever

Dental Crowns, Dental Implants, Teeth Cleaning

52. I am from Lady Lake, FL and I would like to tell you all about my wonderful experience with Star Dental. I am a retired senior citizen, and even though I did have enough money for implants here in the US, I also have quite a bit of time on my hands that my wife and I like to use for travelling. So I told her we should go to Costa Rica, visit with some family, and then take time off to get some “work done”. My wife went ahead and did a facelift, and by the way, she looks fabulous. While I, on the other hand, got my mouth worked on by Dr Sevilla. I got implants and crowns, cavities fixed, deep cleaning, the whole deal. I had a treatment plan before we vacationed. Our trip was well planned out. We rested, enjoyed ourselves and came back home happier than ever.

Overall, it was a great experience, I highly recommend it

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Very professional, and kind. I found the staff to be very accommodating to my needs. I didn’t even have a passport, to begin with. They helped me pick a hotel, and provided transportation. I even got to do some sightseeing while I was there. Costa Ricans are very hospitable people, and their food is great. Overall, it was a great experience, I highly recommend it.

Thank you for such warm and kind words. You were an amazing patient. We hope to see you again for a checkup.

They considered all the risks, both short and long term and clearly laid out my options

5 50 Dental Implants

My experience at Star Dental Implant Center has exceeded my expectations. As someone coming from the US who does not speak Spanish, I have had so much assistance from Laura and Andrea with making difficult travel and transportation arrangements. Their knowledge of key places to visit, to stay and to eat has made this a special experience. However, the most important part of this journey has been discovering the skill and care with which this team of dentists and oral surgeons have taken on my case, which was complicated by underlying type 1 diabetes. They considered all the risks, both short and long term and clearly laid out my options. I was able to make an informed choice and immediately proceed with the plan. The budget was clearly discussed as we went over the itemized charges. I was already aware of many of these costs procedures so I estimated a savings of one half to two-thirds of that in the States. The travel here or portions of it are included in that as well.

I was amazed at the speed and expertise Dr Guillen and Dr Feoli completed the first phase. They explained in excellent English my aftercare and prepared me well for phase 2 with the Oral Surgeon Dr Gonzalez who, several days later completed phase 2. After which I was fitted with a beautifully made prosthesis. In four months I'll continue with the final phases of treatment and realise my hope and this capable teams promise of a healthy mouth and much better general health. The country’s motto is very fitting as it applies to me and my complete experience so far. Star Dental Implant Center and Costa Rica have truly offered me a taste of ''Pura Vida''.

The skill and expertise, along with the care and compassion have been unmatched

5 50 Sinus Lift, Extractions, Dental Crowns, Dental Implants

I was absolutely impressed with Star Dental from my initial contact and throughout my entire dental treatment. I travelled to Costa Rica from the USA for several implants, a sinus lift, extractions, crowns, etc.

Dr Sevilla and his team were able to identify several issues during my treatment that the dentist in the USA had not addressed.

The skill and expertise, along with the care and compassion have been unmatched with any other dentist I have ever gone to. Based on my experience, I already have several individuals who are planning on using Dr Sevilla and his team for their dental needs. The quality, value, customer service and attention to detail are superior to anything I've ever received!

Dear Janet, Thank you for your valuable comments. Our team was happy to treat you in our practice. See you soon!
