The doctor was very kind and highly attentive to my needs

5 50 Root Canals, Extractions • Paid: B/.700

I had a very difficult root canal issue and Dr. Moises Lukoweicki was able to resolve my problem within an hour and a half. The doctor was very kind and highly attentive to my needs and explained everything to myself and my husband. He even contacted for three days after my procedure just to make sure I was ok. That is excellent customer service!!!

All doctors were careful, courteous and honest about issues and made me as comfortable as possible

5 50 Root Canals, Dental Implants

This Clinic was chosen by me due to being on the second floor of Johns Hopkins hospital and having my dental work done in Panama was based on the experience of Americans and Panamians I met last year who said they come once a year for their dental work.

I was a patient of Dr. Monica Shedden, Dr. Pasqualle and Dr. Moises in Feb/Mar 2020. My situation was complicated, including tear down and remake of a bridge, extraction, root canal, implants, and bone grafting.
I would not say this was pain-free, but all doctors were careful, courteous and honest about issues and made me as comfortable as possible. They also identified an infection that was present on x-rays from my home state of Wisconsin, USA and promptly treated me for this dangerous condition.

This is a busy Clinic and every effort was made to give me sequential appointments for the dental work that needed to be performed. I am due to return late June provided the Covid-19 is under control and international travel permitted to have the final phase of this work completed.

This may not be the least expensive clinic in Panama, but I doubt you will find the excellent work they perform at any price.

I’m excited and can’t believe I feel this way

Dental Implants

I came down to Panama City for the express reason to see Pacifica Dental and have 5 implants installed. That was in April of 2019. I arrived had work started by Monica. She performed the first phase of the implants and I left feeling very little pain and was confident with my recovery. As expected all was perfectly healed. Now it is November of the same year and I am returning today to begin phase 2. I’m excited and can’t believe I feel this way! My whole life I’ve been afraid of the Dentist! I’m excited to see Monica and have her finish my dental work! I will update soon! I Recommend this dental firm hands down! You will not be let down!

Treated by: Monica Shedden,DDS

Dear Lawrence it was such a great pleasure to have you as a patient in our office. Thank you for you confidence in us and for giving us the opportunity to fill your expectations. Thanks again for your sincere words. Hugs, Monica from Pacific Dental Clinic

I could not be happier and highly recommend

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I was reluctant to undertake an implant process in Panama but since I was there on for a conference anyways, why not. Dr Monica was awesome. At our initial consultation, we discussed the implant process after reviewing my 3-D X-rays. Yes, I needed some major work here. She described the process and I decided to move forward upon my return in a few months. We completed the first phase with no issues but she did warn me not to get too wild with the local sailors. She knew me quite well. I returned several months later and completed the final phase with her and Dr Pasqualle. I could not be happier and highly recommend Pacific Dental

The clinic is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital. This is a great location since it's near several good hotels and across the street from major banks on one side and a nice mall on the other. Adriana did an awesome job of coordinating the treatment, despite my scheduling screw up on flights. It was clean and the staff very supportive.

Procedure was quick enough and barely had pain

5 50 Emergency Dentist Consultation • Paid: B/.500

I had an emergency procedure due to a broken molar, and Dr Moises did a flawless work, he made everything for me to feel comfortable and the procedure was quick enough and barely had pain. He made me feel like I was with an old friend

Clinic it's a small but a well equipped and very clean one, state of the art equipment but they have everything in there for every kind of procedure or treatment, for sure this is by far on of the best out there

I found it soothing

5 50 Dental Implants, Extractions • Paid: B/.3130

I had 2 implants and an extraction done and was pleased with both the experience and the results. The extractions were difficult, but Dr. Monica Shedden got them done. She explained clearly what was done and the follow up care that was needed. She arranged with another doctor to handle my special requirements within a very limited time frame. She talked almost constantly during the procedure, but even though it was in Spanish and I couldn't understand it, I found it soothing. The tone gave me immediate feedback.

The initial emails and phone calls went well, so I made an appointment. The clinic was a little hard to find, but I arrived early so it wasn't a problem. Their English speaking ability was adequate to meet our communication needs.

The procedure was flawless

5 50 Dental Crowns, Root Canals

Last week I had a root canal perform by Dr. Moises. The procedure went flawless! This review is about the post, and temporary crown. This appointment was 5 days after the root canal. I was also suppose to have the molding made for my permanent crown during this appointment however due to traffic I arrived late and this portion of the appointment had to be moved to another day (which I completely understand). Doctor Cox was my dentist for the "post" and the crown. He didn't speak much English but we managed. He was very gentle and so far everything feels fine, just a little itchy on my gums. Friday I will go have the mouldings taken for the permanent crown, and a few days after that the crown should be ready.
I am so very happy with all the services I have received so far at Pacific Dental Clinic. I will never go anywhere else.

The clinic is very clean and professional. After the appointment for the "post" and temporary crown I had to pay for the post and 50% of the crown, when the premanent crown is fitted they then require the other 50%.

I could not believe how painless and quick the procedure was

5 50 Root Canals • Paid: B/.495

Iam really nervous about visiting the dentist. A few months ago I found out I needed a root canal. I put off doing it for sometime until I found I place I was comfortable with. I came upon Pacific Dental Clinic in Panama and with all the good reviews I decided to give it a try. Dr.Moises Luckowiecki was the doctor that preformed my root canal. It was absolutely painless! I could not believe how painless and quick the procedure was. Dr.Moises explained everything in detail and made sure I understood every step of the root canal, which really made me feel at ease. He was very thorough and always made sure I was doing ok. I highly recommend Dr.Moises.
I will be returning next week for my crown.

The clinic was very clean and easy to find. Everyone spoke English which made the experience a lot smoother. Dr. Monica Shedden responded to my emails directly almost immediately. Dr. Moises was amazing and I highly recommend him for all root canals. The receoptionsit was welcoming, helpful
and knowledgable. My experience at Pacific Dental Clinic has been very positive.

Service was good and pricing was great

4 50 Cosmetic Dentist Consultation • Paid: B/.320

The clinic opened for me even during the holidays which was great service. The treatment was very good and I wasn't up sold at all. They didn't have to do all that I expected and had asked them to do as it wasn't necessary which was great as they could have made more money if they were dishonest.

The clinic could do with a little upgrading as it was a little tired looking but the service was good and the pricing was great. They accept all major credit cards which is awesome. Monica speaks very good English so there is no language barrier at all.

Went a long way to make me comfortable

5 50 Veneers • Paid: B/.760

I had a veneer replaced and a cleaning. It's been my experience that retired people on Medicare in California that join a dental network are provided with inferior dentists who recommend unnecessary treatment so I hoped the excellent reviews of the Pacific Dental Clinic would be worth the trip.

I wasn't disappointed. I especially liked that I was being treated by specialists. Dr. Calvosa was extremely meticulous with a very fine dental touch and the veneer was awesome as it was a perfect match to the other one I still had. Dr. Shedden performed a thorough cleaning and put my mind at ease about my gum situation.

The price was great too, but for me it was the quality of expertise that I received that made the trip worthwhile.

I think I heard more English spoken here in the clinic than anywhere else I went for the week I spent in Panama. That went a long way to make me feel comfortable for my first visit.

I would highly recommend this dental clinic.

5 50 Extractions, Fillings

Extractions, Fillings

I had to have extensive work in my teeth. A few extractions and fillings. I had not attended a dentist for a very long time and no judgement was passed just help for whatever they could. Everything was conducted with complete professionalism.
As far a dental clinics go I'm not sure if you will find one better. Monica is an absolute angel. She is extremely kind and patient and for someone as nervous as me she made the while experience great. They are upfront about all payments and costs and there are no hidden surprises. I would highly recommend this dental clinic.
