Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation, All-on-4 Dental Implants, PFM Bridge
Jehovah and his team were very helpful. They came and picked me up at the airport, gave me great accomodation. All the people are very friendly.

The doctor gives you options to what he can do for you and explains the process of what he will do.

All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Calvo to anyone.

"Top notch work and I am ecstatic with the results of my new smile"
90%Reviewed 23 May 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Crowns, All-on-4 Dental Implants, Dental Implants
All on 4 upper and 2 implants plus crowns.

Dr. Coto is the best! I started communication with his office and him personally. I was a bit apprehensive since it was too good to be true. But I was completely wrong for once. His office consists of the latest technology and his team is superstars. I was taken care of since, I arrived everything coordinated from arrival pickup at the airport, appointment transportation and bed and breakfast where I was pampered and taken care of from start to finish.

Top notch work and I am ecstatic with the results of my new smile. I would definitely recommend him in a heartbeat, already have. My smile says it all. Prices are as posted he does not try to upsell.

Thank you, Dr. Coto, see you in 3 months for my crowns.

Got four crowns. Fit perfectly the first time and no readjustments like they do at home.
Whitening made my smile best ever.

"So thrilled with the quality of the work and the professionalism of the staff"
100%Reviewed 09 Jan 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received:
Hi, my boyfriend, had some implants and other work done there almost a year ago and we were THRILLED with the results. He's been meaning to do a formal review but he keeps forgetting, putting it off. Anyway, I was thinking I have before and after pictures that I can provide so here, they are!

He was (we are) so thrilled with the quality of the work, the cleanliness of the office, the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff and Dr. Coto and the fact that it was so affordable for him to have this work done is beyond words! He was quoted no less than $15k for what Dr. Coto did for less than $5k!! The work he had done was something he had thought he'd NEVER be able to afford but YOU made it possible and we are forever grateful and thankful to have found you! Thank you and God bless!!

Amazing! Top-notch! For those who question the professionalism and quality of the work done here, compared to the level of professionalism that exists in the U.S., I say only one word - DON'T. There is ZERO difference!

"Fair and professional"
100%Reviewed 14 Jun 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I was told by my young dentist in the states that I needed three crowns. Dr. Coto did digital x-rays and could find no such needs and told me so. He did not try to make money off me unnecessarily. Had digital x-rays, cleaning, and erosion cavity filled for under 200 dollars!

Fair and Professional.

"I have healed perfectly"
100%Reviewed 12 Feb 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals
Treatment was just like any other dental treatment in the USA. I felt the tools were clean. The dentist was professional. I didn't feel like they were trying to up-sell me any unneeded services. They picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off all at no additional cost. If you don't have dental insurance in the US why not spend the extra money you would save on a flight and have the work done in Costa Rica

I was nervous about getting dental work in a foreign country but Jehova Rapha made me as comfortable as possible. It's been a month since having two root canals and two extractions and I have healed perfectly and I saved hundreds of dollars. If I ever need dental work in the future I know where I'll return!

"Excellent job"
100%Reviewed 18 Nov 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Bridges
Did 10 implant lower jaw and upper did really good job. The only complain I had is that when we went they just move to a new place 2 days after the surgery and the smell of paint was terrible. But his job was excellent very helpful and easy to communicate. His staff are very friendly.
We going back this March 2016 for crowns.

Brand new and clean. We rented a place and car in Santa Ana was a little far but we were happy about it just don't like to pay toll fee in and out of San Jose. They offer us a ride but my husband wanted to rent a car which is unnecessary.

"All our dental work was wonderful."
100%Reviewed 26 Sep 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Dental Crowns
Very satisfied, but needed a little more info regarding after care. My husband had five implants and ten crowns. We were not advised to use ice for swelling after we left. A lot of swelling. On his next appointment, I asked for ice after because he started to swell immediately. When I asked for ice, they did not have any. So, I walked down the street and bought ice, and it did the trick. Immediately, the swelling went down. Again, we were very satisfied with our dentist and all the work was wonderful.

Great! Coming back in December to finish the work. Really grateful for the contact through our medical doctor who also had dental work done here. We have recommended to your friends and everyone we meet to come here and have any dental work that they might need. While the bed-and-breakfast they recommended was very nice, great food, it did not have air-conditioning and offered a double bed for two. We needed a little more comfort than that when we were doing dental work

"It has been a week since my surgery, and I am actually looking forward to my return."
100%Reviewed 29 Aug 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Extractions
I contacted Jehovah Rapha Dental Centere after arriving in Costa Rica on vacation with my family. We had scheduled appointments with another dental facility, however, after our visit, my husband and I both agreed that it was not a good fit for our family. We began searching, and being a pastor in the U.S., I was naturally drawn to the name (Jehovah Rapha). We were able to get an appointment immediately! It was a very busy time for Dr. Coto, but he agreed to meet with me and my husband anyhow. The spirit of this man without question is remarkable! He exudes genuine humility and compassion toward his patients. His knowledge base in the area of implant surgery is expansive. We were sold at first glance. He personally drove us back to our hotel after our first visit. At my second visit, which was I believe was four days later, I received ten implants and five extractions. I chose to have IV sedation because I am the biggest chicken ever when it comes to having dental work of any type performed. Surprisingly, I never felt the IV enter my arm! First time that has ever happened! Kudos to the young man who started my IV. My apologies for not remembering his name. In addition to this, Dr. Koto did not charge me for the sedation or extractions! Now who does that? After placing my IV, I was led to the area where my surgery would be carried out. Before putting me to sleep, Dr. Coto and his staff surrounded me and began to pray. Enough said! I never felt worried or concerned about anything. I was completely at ease. It has been a week since my surgery, and I am actually looking forward to my return to have my work completed in January. I stated that my husband also had work performed. He had an abscess and was given a root canal on that tooth. He also received veneers and had approximately six old fillings removed and replaced. Our appointment times were at different times, and our hotel was not nearby because as I stated our appointment was made after having arrived in Costa Rica. However, this was no problem because Dr. Coto has an archangel in the name of Mr. Olger Gonzalez who was at our disposal, driving us to and from all appointments. Olger is a gem! He was so very helpful in calming my anxiety prior to the day of surgery. He even took me out to lunch while my husband was having his dental work completed. What else is there to say? If you are in need of dental surgery and you don't care to pay the outrageous dental cost in the US, Jehovah Rapha (Dr. Coto) should be your only choice. The team and doctor are second to none. Thanks, guys, for everything! Total bill this visit was less than $10,000.

The clinic was clean with state of art dental equipment. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Every question I had, they were more than happy to answer. Simply an outstanding team of professionals.
