Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 37 Reviews I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!TW, US, 20 Oct 16

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

Gum Surgery  
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.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

700 mts sur de McDonald´s Plaza del Sol, Curridabat
Rating from 3 Reviews Absolutely recommended.Elena, Germany, 23 May 15

I went to Dr. Rubinstein because I had stronger tooth pain for a longer time. He suggested what to do and that really helped. The price was good and fair. He did what I needed and not too much. The clinic has very modern equipment and it is very clean and professional. The assistants are very friendly. Dr. Rubinstein is working really well. He explains a lot and replies to all the questions I had. I have been at other dentists in Costa Rica but I felt best with him. He offered some opportunities and suggested what to do. The work was done really quickly. Because I am travelling, Dr. Rubinstein offered to have my consultation at this time. And he did that. He replied to some questions I had and I am really happy about that. I can absolutely recommend him as a dentist.

Rating from 1 Review Implants and a nice smileJaime, Ontario.toronto, 21 Jun 13

8 implants and a nice smile I was very pleased with the treatment, the staff were great. Friendly atmosphere. A must visit if you are looking for a nice smile. I was working in Costa Rica and I found Dr. Rubinstein on the web. Dr. Rubinstaein works with Dr. Coslada, who in 1 hour and 15 minutes placed 8 implants in my mouth (zero pain) in both clinics. I thank them both and salute them from Adana Turkey, where I am at present.

Dr macro placed 6 upper implants and bone grafts. The clinic is very busy, but the staff is very nice, they try to accommodate best they can and all of them are always working hard. Even know they are all very busy in the office, you never feel like they don't have time for you or you're being rushed. Very pleased with Dr Marco and his team!
