I felt safe and confident with everyone involved

5 50 Dental Bridges, Flexible Partial Dentures • Paid: $1350

I was very happy with the prompt response from my initial inquiry. Happier when my first appointment to get some advice became an actual dental procedure and felt safe and confident with everyone involved. Everything I needed was finished at the next visit. Very relaxed staff and they didn't waste any of my time. I had a lower bridge installed and an upper denture to fill in my spaces. Later I plan to do a more permanent solution with implants.

They are excellent at what they do

4.5 50 Dental Crowns

I cannot say enough good things about Costa Rica Dental Lab. Geovanna, Ceasar, Frederico and our wonderful driver Jose are all very warm and caring people. They are excellent at what they do. I love my new crowns and now smile at everyone whereas before I hated to open my mouth to smile. They matched my old teeth perfectly and gave me a new outlook. As far as professionalism, they don't get any higher rating from me. Dr. Ceasar is an expert! Thank you all FIVE STARS from me!

You feel like you are her only patient, she is amazing

5 50 Extractions, Dental Implants

I had extensive work done at this Clinic. Ten extractions and eight implants. Dr Ceasar was very professional and communicative during the three-hour procedure. I found with the medication there was very little pain during the healing time of just a few days. I'm wearing the temporary dentures for the six months of bone growth around the implants. I'll be receiving the permanent teeth in a few months.

Once I made the initial phone call to the clinic Geovanna walked me thru the entire process. She is a dental angel. She arranges your pick up from the airport and all rides anywhere you need to good. You feel like you are her only patient, she is amazing. I highly recommend this clinic.

The doctor did a great job and did it very quickly

4.5 50 Extractions, Dental Implants, Dental Crowns

I had checked carefully and decided to go with the team at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab. I had 2 extractions, 4 implants and 4 crown bridge.

Excellent. Everyone was so professional. Dr Salas did a great job and did it very quickly. Could not believe that on Tuesday at 10.30 am I arrived at the clinic and was finished by 2 pm. I even had a temporary bridge by then. The lab is on the premises, everything is checked and double checked again. It is a small clinic but they have every speciality on staff.

Geovanna, the coordinator, was terrific even calling us on the way out to make sure the driver had picked us up in time for our flight!

Looking forward to going back and finishing the implants in 4 months.

I have never had such a pleasant visit to the dentist office in my life

5 50 Dental Bridges, Dental Crowns, Root Canals, Teeth Whitening, Fillings

My wife and I were directed to the clinic by my sister. I had been in an motor vehicle accident. I lost one tooth and chipped another. My wife needed whitening, 3 crowns and a filling. I needed 2 bridges, a crown, and a root canal. We figured that we saved around 20k versus getting our teeth fixed in the States with insurance.

I would recommend this clinic to anybody who wants to save their cash.

The doctor and the staff are very professional yet also very personable. They are very well skilled in their craft. The receptionist makes you feel like family the moment that you arrive. I have never had such a pleasant visit to the dentist office in my life! If we ever need anything other than a cleaning. Dr Mora will be our doctor.

He takes pride in his work and well should

5 50 Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

Going to a foreign country to get extensive, complicated dental work can be very daunting and stressful. The idea was suggested to me by a man on Facebook. At first, I thought "are you crazy" but then when faced with the enormous cost of having the work done here in the States I knew we had to do something. My husband has M.S. and the medications he is on have wreaked havoc on his teeth. The cost of doing the necessary work in the U.S. would run in the 30K to 50K range. We are on a fixed income with only a small retirement account. What to do. I researched for over two months.

I talked with the M.S. society. They referred me to someone for a loan. I talked with Washington State University Dental and their criteria were complicated with no guarantee he would be seen. If they did see him it wouldn't be before 2019. We needed the work done soon to avoid further damage to his gums and bone. We researched Mexico and found the crime rate concerning, and the reviews warned us the dentist there will try to talk you into more work than necessary. Their warranty ran two years.

I contacted 10 dental offices in Costa Rica, sent them my husband's panoramic x-rays and asked for estimates and plans of care they thought would be necessary. The estimates varied in costs and the contact follow up of some were lacking. I read literally hundreds of reviews and talked with people who had dental work done in CR. I even joined an ex-pat Costa Rica Facebook page to talk with people who live there. After weeks of research, I had two finalists. Both had the right answers to what we were looking for but one had a better price.

These were the important things to us:
The doctor's education and years in practice.
Quality of materials used.
Was the lab on site?
A pharmacy was next door.
Medical attention was available.
Was the doctor comfortable with working on an M.S. patient?
What was their warranty?
How long would we be in the country?

Geovanna is the contact. She is thorough, high energy and fun to work with. Dr. Cesar Salas looks very young but is well qualified and experienced. He made sure my husband understood every step of the way what was happening and why. Francisco is an artist in the lab. He takes pride in his work and well should. Jose, the driver they have to pick you up and take you to appointments, was a true pleasure. We spent time with him on tours of the country. We did not need a car and I would not have wanted to drive in Costa Rica's crazy traffic.

So how much did we save? The avenue of reconstruction they choose for my husband would have cost no less than 50K in the states. We paid less than 15K. Thank you Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab!!

We could not have been more pleased. From the minute we saw our driver with his big friendly smile to the dentist and his obvious caring concern about our needs to the incredible artistry of the teeth made by the lab. You cannot go wrong with Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab.

When you arrive you are treated like you are the only patient they have

5 50 Dental Crowns, Dental Implants, Bone Graft

My husband needed extensive dental care. After receiving several estimates from dentists in America we knew we needed to seek an alternative.

My husband has M.S. and due to the medications he is taking his saliva is practically nonexistent and his teeth were in very bad shape. I spent two months, working every day, researching how he could get the care he needed and could afford. I looked into possible help from the M.S. society (no), any kind of Government assistance (no), University dental care (no, didn't want to deal with the M.S. and we would have to wait at least a year), Mexico (too much crime and very little warranty coverage). Then someone suggested I look at Costa Rica.

I spent weeks researching Costa Rica education requirement and the many dental labs available. I read hundreds of reviews talked with actual patients and pared it down to 10 clinics.

From there it came down to 2 dental offices with highly qualified doctors, labs and dentist in the same office, experience with M.S. patients and accommodation. Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab was the winner since they met all of my criteria and had the lowest bid. Money isn't everything, I don't usually make decisions based solely on cost but with all things being equal there was little to lose and much to gain.

The choice was perfect. They arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport. (Their driver is a great young man.) He took us directly to the dental office. Dr Cesar Salas was very attentive and took the time to evaluate my husband immediately. They developed a plan of action and began working. They set aside time for out of country patients for the time they know they will arrive and get started right away, so you are there and able to get help if you need it before you head home.

The first day was extractions, implants (5 uppers and 5 lower), and prepping his good teeth for crowns. He returned the second day for three bone grafts. He required the removal of infection in the left lower jaw. Tons of work later and he looked like he had been in a fist fight due to the swelling. We were given pain medications and antibiotics to take to our hotel. We iced him up for three days and he was bruised but did really well. After 4 days he was fitted with a temporary appliance to take home and we will be returning in about 4 months to get the permanent appliances.

When you arrive you are treated like you are the only patient they have. They explain every move as they work on you and made sure you understand. They are available for questions via text message or phone. The driver took us to and from our appointments. The lab made sure we were happy with the look (Francisco is a true artist) before doing the crowns. We felt the desire they had to make us happy. They stand behind their work with an impressive warranty. We left feeling like we had made friends, as well received the best care available.

If you need dental care you should call Geovanna right away and set yourself up for the best dental experience you could hope for.

P.S. we ended up saving almost 70% off the estimated cost in America.

Don't look for some high-rise, fancy office. The clinic is modest but clean. Most every home and business in Costa Rica has bars on the windows, doors, and garage entrance. The office is clean and all the equipment is comparable to what you would see in the states. The people are the best. Geovanna is a delight to work with, Dr Salas is experienced, friendly and caring, Francisco is an artist and takes real pride in his work. The driver was a jewel.

Thank you Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab. We look forward to seeing you again.

I will probably be returning for any future major dental work. Recommended without reservations

5 50 Dental Implants, Teeth Whitening

I had 3 implants and teeth whitening over the course of two visits.

Great. The doctor, the lab technician was very smart and hard-working. I received great before-and-after communication with the office coordinator (Geovanna) about the procedure. I will probably be returning for any future major dental work. Recommended without reservations.

Everyone working on every aspect of my care made me feel at ease the whole time

5 50 Teeth Whitening, Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Scaling and Root Planing • Paid: $1200

I got a (painless!) Root canal and crown, buildup and post, scaling and planing, and zoom whitening here in may 2018.

I cannot recommend this team enough. My teeth came out perfect! Their office has everything my dentist at home (NC USA) has and more. Everything was clean and sterilized there were absolutely no worries.

One of the best experiences I have ever had with a dentist and I am a person who has a lot of anxiety about the dentist. I showed up to my appointment ridiculously early (like before they were even open) and Geovanna actually called the team of specialists and they came in early for me.

Everyone working on every aspect of my care made me feel at ease the whole time. The lovely miss Geovanna helped me through everything including getting an Uber to the office. I took a leap of faith and it definitely paid off. My dentist in the US wanted over $3500 for the work had done and he is one of the least expensive dentists in my relatively large city. The price for all that work at Costa Rica Dental Clinic: $1200.00! I got my work done and an amazing vacation for half the price of seeing my dentist at home.

If you are on the fence or unsure I would say to you: Do it! You will not regret it. I am more than satisfied with my results. In fact, I am bringing my wife back for an implant in a couple of months.

I was very happy with my experience at this clinic

5 50 Teeth Whitening, Teeth Cleaning, Dental Crowns

I have had 12 crowns made for my upper teeth as well as some oral surgery on my gum, teeth whitening and cleaning. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the work that was done and with the quality care, I received from everyone. Geovanna went out of her way to accomodate my schedule and I was very comfortable with and confident in the dentists who did the work. The prices are very good, especially based on US standards. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing dental care.

I was very happy with my experience at this clinic. It's very clean with the highest professional standards but is also very comfortable. I will continue to go back to them for all my dental needs.

He is a great dentist and a kind and gentle human being

5 50 Dental Crowns, Root Canals, Dental Bridges • Paid: $1600

I chose Costa Rica Dental Clinic because of reviews as well as the fact that they have their own expert dental lab on site making the process faster and more personal. I decided to have dental work done in Costa Rica to be able to afford the care I needed. The cost was roughly 1/3 of the cost and I can not tell you how happy I am with the quality of the services. I had two root canals, three crowns and a permanent bridge.

Upon arrival, I was met by the office manager who is extremely organized, thoughtful and compassionate and takes customer service to a new high. There was an expert in root canals there to begin the work I needed including placing two posts for the crown work. She was fantastic! I had no discomfort at all. Next, the dentist, who by the way is not only a great general dentist but has international certification in implantology, prepped my teeth and did the crowns as one single bridge to make it stronger and better in appearance. He made the impression and the dental lab technician came in to examine the impression and my mouth. The bridge was ready the very next day. The work done at Costa Rica Dental Lab Clinic is superior to any work I have ever had done in the US and the experience at the clinic, the down to earth atmosphere, the professionalism, kindness, and generosity made what I dreaded an actually great experience!

I have a very good dentist in the US. However, I have asked Dr. Cesar to be my dentist. He is a great dentist and a kind and gentle human being. Geovanna, the office manager is smart, organized and direct with a wonderful sense of humor and Franc, the dental lab technician is an artist at his work and so very nice.

The work is guaranteed for ten years. What you save in cost could very well provide you with the funds to travel or find a lovely place to just stay and relax in the wonderful country of Costa Rica. Go for the expert dental work, stay for a life-enriching adventure. My heartfelt thanks to everyone at Costa Rica Dental Lab Clinic.
