"Quality is excellent"
4.5 50Reviewed 30 Nov 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation,Dental Crowns,Fillings,Teeth Cleaning
Had three crowns, two fillings and a cleaning. Quality is excellent, but you pay for it. Prices are about 30% to 50% less expensive than in the US. So, still a good deal. I tried dentists in other towns outside PV and they didn't have the skill.

This is the third time I have been to this clinic. It was originally recommended by my own dentist back in the US who went to school with Dr. Penalva. You might find cheaper, but you will not find better.

"Very professional and efficient"
5 50Reviewed 16 Jan 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental X-Ray,Teeth Cleaning
I had my teeth cleaned at this clinic. I am very happy with the service, they included an x- ray with the cleaning. The clinic was state of the art, clean and professional, and my Dentist and his assistant spoke fluent English.

I was extremely happy with my cleaning, very professional and efficient. I will definitely go back next time I am in Puerto Vallarta. The office was clean, nicely decorated, easy to get to, and the staff were all very friendly. The price was about a quarter of the cost in Canada.

"All I can say is one will not be disappointed"
5 50Reviewed 01 Oct 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I had 28 teeth done with implants. The dental surgery was very professional and completed at a cost much lower than a similar treatment would have cost in United States. All I can say is one will not be disappointed.

Very professional with great staff and dentist. I have been many times and never been disappointed. Would definitely recommend and have done so with my friends. I will be returning to Puerto Vallarta in November and have an appointment scheduled.

Bridge, crowns, gum surgery, zoom whitening

I highly recommend this clinic and their professionals for any dental work needed to be done. I had some older bridges and crowns that needed to be replaced and I have never been happier with the way my teeth look! The cost was a fraction of what I would have paid in Canada and the service was just as great, if not better.

"They were honest"
5 50Reviewed 24 Mar 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning
general cleaning

I was really surprised by the excellent way that the staff handled my cleaning. I have never had such a great cleaning, the pressure on the nozzle used was gentle; not like the mining-for-diamonds method used in Canada. Dentists should learn from this technique. More people would go to the dentist for this. Also, the staff took pictures and mentioned that I needed a cap for one tooth and a tooth that needed removal; of which other dentists said to leave the latter, alone, as it was not abscessed and not bothering me. They were honest with what else needed to be done and I welcomed their opinion. I will investigate when I get benefits this year. And I will return to get the other work done as it was such a great experience for me and probably will always be. Leslie Queen

I was Born in Mexico City and my current location is Puerto Vallarta. Ive being living in paradise for over 30 years. Im very fortunate to work in such a beautiful and peaceful place. Whenever I want, I can go fishing in the ocean or swim in warm waters, go biking in the mountains, scuba dive, or simply take a walk on the beach.
I enjoy my work as a dentist. I have my dental clinic in Plaza Marina, Puerto Vallarta, {near the airport} where I work with a wonderful team of professionals highly qualified in their fields.
My goal is to provide the best dental care in Puerto Vallarta with a high degree of professionalism in a clean and modern facility. I maintain close contact with study groups and attend national and international conferences to remain me updated in the most current techniques.
