The service was excellent

3.5 50 Chipped Tooth Repair • Paid: $152

The service was excellent and they repaired my tooth beautifully. My only concern is that I have sent two requests to have a receipt with the details of what the dentist emailed to me or sent by mail so I may claim my dental work to my insurance here in Canada.

The procedure was done on Jan 25 at the Plaza Marina.

I am very pleased with everything that was done

5 50 Extractions, Root Canals, Dental Crowns • Paid: $2268

I first went to this clinic 3 years ago, before COVID-19, and was very pleased with our experience!! I have just returned from my dental vacation again!! This time I had 2 extractions a root canal and a crown, then I started my implant procedure, I will need to return when it has finished healing!! Darn another holiday in Mexico!! The staff all speak fluent English the receptionist is the best, love, love, love her!! If you are worried about having dental work done down in Mexico?? DON’T WORRY this office has very professional dental staff and the most up to date medical equipment!! We spent a fraction of the cost we would have spent in Canada and I am very pleased with everything that was done!! A big thank you to both my dentist and the specialist, see you both in the new year for my implant tooth!!

Quality is excellent

4.5 50 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 50 Teeth Cleaning, Dental X-Ray • Paid: $40

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 50 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.

Price was within reason and as quoted

5 50 Porcelain Crown • Paid: $600

Excellent service in a timely manner and at a price that was within reason and as quoted.

The service was just as great

4.8 50 Dental Bridges, Dental Crowns, Zoom! Teeth Whitening, Gum Surgery • Paid: $3800

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.

I will go back again!

4.1 50 Zoom! Teeth Whitening • Paid: $18

Teeth whitening went very well, cost was half of price what I paid in Canada. I will go back again!

They were honest

5 50 Teeth Cleaning • Paid: $30

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.
