I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.

0 50 Periodontitis Treatment • Paid: $120000

Peridontal surgery. Dr. Hernandez is one of the best dentists I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Besides the fact that he is one half to one third less expensive than the dentists in the US, Dr. Hernandez and his brother speak and write in fluent English and received their dental degree from the US. I am going back to Dr. Hernandez for a second round of surgeries on my gums, and I am actually looking forward to the experience. I never thought I would say that about a dentist. He is about as painless as you can get.

The best dentist I have been to

5 50 Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Fillings
Were you pleased with the treatment?

Exceeded US standards, electronic X Rays(at no cost) that are not uncomfortable at all. This is by far the best dentist I have been to. Clean, professional, comfortable, friendly & reasonably priced. I had a ridiculous quote from a dentist in New Mexico, encouraging me to get a root canal & crown, cleaning, fillings & gum treatment for $4K. Doctor Rodriguez encouraged porcelain fillings over root canal, crown option (which was not needed), saving a bundle & not to mention keeping teeth.

Would you recommend the clinic?

100 Percent. Great Experience. If you are a budget traveler, buses go from The Mall in San Jose to San Pedro (El Higueron Gas Station) Exit bus, take a right on the street by the station & then left on the first street you come to. This will go for a few blocks, then curve to the right. Dentist office is the white building on your left with logo for Symmetry Dental.

Would you return for further treatment?

Yes, next time I would go for treatment, then to Nicaragua for a few weeks... vacation & Dental for the cost of a trip to the dentist in the states.

Good experince

5 50 Root Canals, Dental Crowns
Were you pleased with the treatment?

Dr Rodolfo Hernandex Valerin was such a pleasure to meet. My father and I were in need of some dental treatment. He responded quickly and I could see from the start it was going to be a good experince. My father was quoted five thousand US for two root canals and crowns. The Doctor quoted us eleven hundred US. My father and I were surprised the clinic was modern as you would get any where in the states. Everything went very well. On time and on bugdet. I can not say anything negative about the doctor or his staff.

Would you recommend the clinic?

100 hundred percent YES!

Up to par with any dentist I have visited in America

5 50 Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Veneers
Were you pleased with the treatment?

Root canals, Dental Crowns, Veneers

I had my whole mouth refurbished: 9 root canals, 18 crowns and 6 veneers. The dentist and the facilities are up to par with any dentist I have visited in America. The total cost including two airline tickets and 4-star hotel did not exceed $15,000. Minimum I was quoted in America was between $35,000 and $40,000.

Would you recommend the clinic?

I would definitely recommend this clinic to others and as a matter of fact I already have.

Would you return for further treatment?

I would certainly return for further treatment, but hopefully my dental work is done for a long, long time. However, my husband will be getting treatment in the next 6-12 months at the clinic.

Superior work at a very affordable price

5 50 Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment?

We were both very pleased with our treatment. The doctors and their staff were very pleasant and professional. There was a very friendly atmosphere in the the clinic which was immaculate. They have the latest in hi-tech equipment and they both performed superior work at a very affordable price. We were highly pleased by the lack of pain we experienced after having many procedures done in the same day. I saw our family dentist today for a routine exam, and he was very impressed by the work that was done. He said he would be pleased to refer patients to Symmetry based on the work he saw.

Would you recommend the clinic?

Absolutely - in fact we have already recommended Symmetry Dental more than once.

Would you return for further treatment?

We plan to return for further treatment within the next year.

I felt as though I was in the care of a friend

4.8 50 Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment?

I am very pleased with the results of the work done by dr Rodolfo. They were very gentle and took all the time I asked of them to answer questions etc. I felt as though I was in the care of a friend...............NOT like the average medical professional like you encounter here in the USA.

Would you recommend the clinic?

I admit I have always hated going to the dentist, but I am honestly pleased with the way things went. There was honestly very little pain compared to what I have experianced in the past. The clinic has a really comfortable feeling, and its a family business, their father was there and greeted me as well, great people.

Would you return for further treatment?

I am sure I will return for the further treatment I need, as soon as I am able. It was a good experiance and I am very satisfied. My teeth now look great thanks to them.

We highly recommend

5 50 Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment?

My husband, Jon, and I both had extensive dental treatment at Symmetry Dental. Both Dr. Rodolfo and Dr. Roberto Hernandez were very friendly as were all members of their staff. They demonstrated a very high degree of professionalism and we both were greatly impressed with them and their Clinic which was spotlessly clean, bright and inviting. One thing that was a happy surprise was the lack of pain we experienced on the days following a full day in the dentist chair! We highly recommend Symmetry Dental and Doctors Hernandez and plan a return trip within the next few months for additional treatment.

Would you recommend the clinic?

Absolutely!

Would you return for further treatment?

We plan to return later this year.

Highly recommended

4.5 50 Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment?

This was my first experience with dental treatment outside of the U.S. I was very pleased with the professionalism, communication, friendliness with both Dr's Hernandez and their wonderful staff members. The quality of work (excellent) and the timeliness (considering the relatively short stay in Costa Rica) was as good, if not better than in the U.S. Highly recommended!!!

Would you recommend the clinic?

Most definately

Would you return for further treatment?

I plan to return in January, along with my wife. We will both be having procedures completed.

Totally comfortable

4.9 50 Dental Crowns, Root Canals, Dental Bridges
Were you pleased with the treatment?

I actually only planed on getting 2 or 3 crowns, and the rest back in Boston (USA). However, after a thorough dental exam from both Hernandez Brothers, and their patience in explaining the pros and cons of different treatment possibilities and answering all my questions... I felt totally comfortable having them fix everything. I had extensive work done. 6 full crowns, 6 root canals, and a 3tooth bridge!
In Boston, a previous root canal would take 3-4 hours per tooth. Dr Hernandez did all 6 in about 3-4 hours. This pain free procedure was checked and re-checked to be sure all the nerve was removed.
I got the same care when they fitted my crowns several days latter. Each up and down was carefully, and patiently fitted just so, before the next crown was placed.
I never felt a dentist be so attentive, patient nor skillful.
And I saved about $10,000 from my US estimate !!!

Would you recommend the clinic?

Both Dentist were very kind, patient and skilled. I felt I was in good hands and would recommend anyone to them!
Also, they gave a whole day, to take care of me and my dental work, then another 3 hours to fit things perfectly. I never felt they were rushed, and I'm sure they had to do rescheduled for some patients to accommodate my travel plans.

Would you return for further treatment?

Yes

Guaranteed for 5 years.This price is per unit.This treatment is chosen when one or more teeth are missing. The bridge is cemented to at least two adjacent teeth.

Root canals

Root canals save teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted. Many patients who need root canal therapy arrive in pain, treatment relieves that pain, they don't hurt. The causes of the need of this treatment are: The pulp has been irritated beyond natural healing and is causing pain. The pulp has died and is causing inflammation or swelling. There is an abscess at the end of the root.
 

Sinus Lift

 

Teeth Contouring and Reshaping
