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!

Treated by: Dr Carlos Sevilla

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

My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidence

5 50 Dental Crowns, Dental Implants, Root Canals • Paid: $27900

I have had two trips to Star Dental. My first trip lasted 2 weeks and during that time I was evaluated by Dr Sevilla and had an implant, 2 root canals and crown lengthening. I was fitted with a set of temporary crowns and then returned home after 2 weeks. I had a severe case of bruxism and the evaluation period with the temporary crowns was needed to determine my wear patterns. I was quite happy with the work done by Dr Sevilla and the specialists, an Endodontist and Periodontist, who were brought to the office to facilitate the additional procedures.

After healing for three and a half months back in Denver, Colorado, I returned for the completion of my full mouth restoration. I had final crowns made, all the occlusion adjustments necessary made, and a new night guard made for my protection. My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidence!

Treated by: Dr Carlos Sevilla

Sean, it was a pleasure having you at Star Dental Implant Center. I'm glad you're happy with the procedure. Please count on us for any further needs, and we hope you visit next time you're in Costa Rica.

We did the treatments without anaesthesia and was glad given his great steady technique

5 50 Dental Checkup • Paid: $250

Went to Star Dental because Dr Sevilla was US trained and their clinic is within the most premium Hospital in Costa Rica. During the checkup, Dr Sevilla found a number of cavities that needed treatment. He took the time to explain the different options. Given I do not like injections, we did the treatments without anaesthesia and was glad given his great steady technique.

I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone looking for US-trained doctors at a very convenient price.
