Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I conversed via email with the team. They were responsive and quoted me a price that was reasonable. I went in and they did the consultation and treatment same day. I didn't have to come back for follow up appointments, the work was done well and professionally. I'm glad I went to Costa Rica Dental Services.

Experience was great, quality was great and people were friendly.

"They are very friendly and have a great service"
80%Reviewed 06 May 2018 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Dental Crowns
I was there for my sister who got a wonderful job done. She had 7 root canal treatments, and 18 crowns put on. She now has a gorgeous smile and no pain! I only had my bond in my front tooth re-done, it's okay, but a little rough in places, and a little uneven. I'll survive. All in all, I highly recommend this clinic!

They are very friendly and have a great service. However, the front staff has a little bit of a language barrier. The owner speaks and understands English perfectly, but he is doing the work in the back.

"I’ve found my courage and my dentist"
100%Reviewed 30 Apr 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Fillings, Root Canals, Dental Implants
I grind my teeth at night when I’m sleeping. This has ruined my teeth, given me headaches and damaged the Dental work I’ve already had. If that’s not enough I’ve had a disastrous encounter with an endodontist that resulted in 2 surgeries, a root canal, 2 crowns and finally the loss of the tooth. The pain was so traumatic that I’m afraid of the dentist. Thank goodness my moment of courage occurred at Costa Rica Dental Services.

After careful consideration, we (yes, I was included) determined I needed 2 root canals redone (because 2 different US dentists failed to notice roots with more than 1 nerve.) A broken tooth needed a root canal (that was the reason for the courage) and 3 implants - 1 from the endodontist nightmare and 2 from root canals that couldn’t be completed without agony. (I’m wondering how many other teeth I had with 2 nerves per root.)

Before I left I had a largely failed filling replaced and small worn places on my front teeth filled so I could smile.

Up to this point, any exceptional dentist could have done the work I had. I have never met an exceptional dentist before but I’m sure they exist somewhere other than this office.

In addition to bonding (my word not the dentists), my front teeth to fill the worn off enamel Dr. Gadea built up a tooth that was pushed behind the other front tooth and blended the effect so my crooked teeth look straight. Not straighter - straight! He also used that same bonding to make a rough line on the bottom of my teeth smooth and even. When I gasped and stared at him unable to speak from shock at my suddenly improved appearance he said,”This is what I love to do. When I get started I just have to make the teeth look better.”

I have to go back to have the crowns when the implants have healed but I’ve found my courage and my dentist. I would dream of going anywhere else.

In a scale of 1 to 10, Costa Rica Dental Services is a 20.

Treatment Received: Cosmetic Dentist Consultation
Highest recommendation for Dr. Gadea and his team. My experience was truly second to none. Dr. Gadea is an excellent cosmetic Dentist whose main priority is making sure his patients are comfortable and get the best dentistry he can offer. He has a great team. They are all professional, with superb workmanship, artistry, and state of the art equipment. He has transformed all my ugly grind down teeth into a beautiful smile. His fees are very reasonable and affordable for all incomes, and will work with you. If you need quality work done, call Dr. Gadea. You will thank god you did? I do every day. Thank you for giving my smile back.

"They are professional, compassionate and most importantly genuine"
100%Reviewed 10 Sep 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Dental Crowns, Temporary Bridge
My teeth were in poor condition from years of sports, smoking and neglect. After obtaining different quotes and treatment options including implants in Canada, all unaffordable, I decided to research medical tourism. Costa Rica came highly recommended. Dr. Gadea 's clinic stood out for me including previous testimonials. I contacted the clinic and received a quick response. Juan instructed me to forward my panoramic X-ray and Dr. Gadea himself called me back.

We discussed my detailed treatment plan that had been e-mailed to me. His knowledge, genuine interest, and reassuring nature convinced me to move forward. Juan made all the arrangements including picking us up at the airport after a 2 day weather delay. Everything was rearranged. Nervously walking into the clinic I was immediately impressed. Laura warmly welcomed us. Returning patients from New York began extolling how they LOVED Dr. Gadea and that I had made a great choice. After an examination and scan using modern equipment, Dr. Gadea excitedly informed me that I didn't need to lose all of my remaining teeth.

We reworked a treatment plan with implants, crowns and a temporary bridge. After the surgery, I was pain-free with no swelling. I saved a minimum 40% from the different quotes I received in Canada. I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Gadea and his staff. They are professional, accommodating, compassionate and most importantly they are genuine. They really do care. Looking forward to returning to beautiful Costa Rica soon for my new teeth. Thank you again, Dr. Gadea.

Excellent.

"Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !"
100%Reviewed 12 Dec 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dental Implants, Bone Graft, Veneers, Dental Crowns
8 Extractions, 8 Implants with bone grafts, 5 veneers, 6 Crowns

This is a follow up to my first January treatment, when Dr. Gadea extracted 8 teeth and implanted the stems of the 8 implants with bone grafts. I came back in August, after the bone grafts and implant stems were secure and solid, to have the remainder of the work done. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gadea and his team.I experienced no pain during the entire process due to his use of Novocaine and non opioid pain pills. He was meticulous in his work, even sending back to the lab one of the porcelain tops of the implants that he felt fit poorly. Even though the remaining work only took appointments during a four day period, I would suggest to anyone who has traveled to have work done, to stay an extra 5-6 days to make sure the fit is correct with no pain. I wanted a small adjustment for an area that I thought was too high and he took care of it immediately. Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !

"I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!"
100%Reviewed 20 Oct 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Veneers
It is my hope to provide the reader comfort and reassurance in making this important decision. If you are considering dental treatment in Costa Rica, please read this carefully. For many years I pursed smile enhancement and considered many options. After many attempts to whiten my teeth with over the counter treatments, and subsequent disappointments in the results, I searched for professional help and decided to meet with Dr. Gadea for veneers, I am so glad I did!
Admittedly, it was concerning to travel outside the US for medical treatment. However, after researching credentials I made the decision. While in the lobby waiting for my appointment, I conversed with other Americans who also traveled to see Dr. Gadea and they shared their positive experiences. My confidence was reinforced when they stated they had returned for further treatments; it was very reassuring to me.
After recently seeing my local dentist for routine cleaning my dentist complemented the work of Dr. Gadea and stated it appeared the work was done by a US dentist. When I shared the price for the work provided, he was really impressed.

The value provided for the work performed is excellent.
In conclusion, put your mind at ease (as much as you can), make the right choice, as I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!

Thank you,
Happy Patient from Florida

"The Root Canal, Teeth Cleaning and Crown procedures were pain free"
100%Reviewed 09 Sep 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Teeth Cleaning
I had 3 root canals, and crowns (molars), and a cleaning, that needed to be done and I couldn't afford to have the work done in the United States, even at low income discount rates. It was scary having work done in a foreign country but everything turned out great! It was only $2000 and comparable services around here were at around $6000.

It was great, all of the work was done in a week, Dr. Gadea was very professional, and the procedure was pain free and done with modern equipment. I couldn't be happier with the quality of work. It was quick, painless and I really feel like my crowns are VERY high quality. I will be back for all of my future dental work, you can count on that! If you're wondering if it's worth the risk to travel to a new country to get a break on dental services it totally is.

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.

Fillings
The fillings is a process that eliminates decays from affected teeth and replaces the lost structure with healing material that will recover the original shape and functions. The white fillings are made with a special resin that can be as the same color of the tooth so nobody knows the difference; this is a huge advantage because it looks much better than black fillings or amalgams. The new resins are free of mercury, which solves another big problem present in traditional amalgams

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.

Some of the often problems that teeth presents are bad positioning, stains, dark coloring, fractures and can be solved through the application of porcelain veneers. The veneers are thin sheets prepared just for your size and it sticks to the front tooth, obtaining a better appearance, younger and healthier. In only two sessions you will not have any type of dental problem and you can brag with a beautiful smile.
