Denstetica

(829) 954-8221 Torre Progreso Business Center, Suite 605., Av. Lope De Vega No. 13, Santo Domingo
Rating from 9 Reviews I would definitely recommend DensteticaMike, US, 23 Sep 16

I lost my #13 tooth 15 years ago due to lack of proper care and $. Last spring I got an implant while vacationing in Ecuador. After six months I was ready for the post and crown. At Denstetica Clinic in the DR, a close exam with X-rays showed I needed more work. In all I got, in addition to the post and crown on 13, root canals and crowns without posts on 18&19, an onlay over 14 (it had a previous root canal) and I whitened my teeth as a little extra for myself. All for less than what I was quoted in NY for just the 13 treatment. I had numerous responses to my inquiry on WhatClinic, all very courteous and professional. I opted for Denstetica because Tiffany, the receptionist, speaks English and answered all of my questions and concerns immediately or she would check and respond back shortly thereafter. She is actually a dentist herself so is very knowledgeable. The main dentist, Dr.Peña, also speaks English, another added plus for me. The office is upscale and modern utilizing cutting edge equipment and procedures. They offer safe complementary ground transportation along with lodging and dining suggestions. I would definitely recommend them. The prices may be a little more expensive than others locally but you get what you pay for. We all even went out the last night for drinks and to celebrate a job well done.

It was an outstanding experience from here. The treatment performed by Dr. Alonso with so care. I'm so impressed by their professionalism and expertise. He performed three implants, and he did them brilliantly. He made me comfortable before performing the implantation. I'm glad that I came to him for the implantation. I must recommend Dr. Alonso.

Rating from 10 Reviews I would definitely recommend!!Berwyn, US, 27 Apr 16

I needed a root canal and a crown on a molar. It was so bad, I was having sinus problems and headaches from it.The discounted price here in the states was insane!! I was able to get the same treatment done at Dental Studio Spa for a little less than half of what it cost here in the US.The staff was amazing! I would definitely recommend!! Amazing facility!!! Looks like a day spa! The decor is top notch and made me feel extremely comfortable. The equipment is super modern...cutting edge equipment!! The team there went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and get my treatment done!! As I was only in town for the day, the ENTIRE TEAM stayed late to make sure that I was able to get all of the work done that I requested!!! I loved the experience there and will definitely return if I ever need to have cost effective dental work done overseas again!
