I am much more confident with my new smile

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Everything from start to finish was great here. Of course, I was nervous travelling out of the states to an unfamiliar place, but once I arrived I knew I made a great decision. I actually spoke to Dr Urzola prior to my trip and he reassured me all would be fine. The entire staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable before and after your treatment. Super friendly staff as well. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my dental work. Since I have been home I have received nothing but compliments from friends and family. I am much more confident with my new smile. I truly would recommend this clinic to everyone. Even the pricing is great!

It was truly a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend

5 50 Dental Implants

When I decided to choose Costa Rica for dental implants because of the lower prices and excellent quality doctors, I checked for doctors that specialized in dental implants, not just dentists. Dr Urzola returned my call, and we talked extensively and regularly about the procedure before I finally decided to go to Costa Rica and check him out. He was very thorough and gave me confidence that dental implants would be the perfect solution for me, although we weren't sure if I needed to do full dental implants for upper and lower. I went over in September 2019 for a physical checkup and to check his operation. He gave me an option to keep my lower teeth and just use partial implants for the lower. He agreed with the US doctors that I would need a full implant for the upper. I decided to do the surgery with him the next day.

Dr Urzola had 2 beautiful offices/clinics and the staff was very efficient and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised that he had the same type of equipment as the US clinic I visited, and also had an in house lab. He explained to me what the surgery would entail. We stayed a total of 6 days and checked in daily with the doctor. On the 4th day, I fitted my temporary upper implant and it was perfect.

I even managed to make to get a day off to take a Costa Rica forest tour because I healed quickly.

Other than the wonderful service, he offered a 2 payment cash plan, 1/2 on that trip, and then, the 2nd payment when I return in February for my permanent implant. In the US, they wanted full payment upfront.

In addition, he gave me some freebees to bring home: an oral irrigator, and ice packs and a lot of written advice about eating so that my temporary implant doesn't break before the second visit. A week after I got home, he called me just to check on how I was doing.

It was truly a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr Esteban Urzola to anyone considering dental implants.
