"We never felt that any procedure was rushed or quality sacrificed"
5 50Reviewed 07 Nov 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals,Dental Crowns,Fillings,Fixed Partial Dentures
My wife and I underwent several procedures including implants, root canal, a partial denture and fillings. We were a bit nervous about getting this done outside the US. But in the end, we thought the savings justified the risk.

What we found was dental care that exceeded our experience with US clinics. The facility is large, modern, and spotless. It is well equipped including a lab for making crowns. Everyone dons masks, gloves, and head covers. But the real difference is the doctors.

There are at least half a dozen doctors with different specialties and many more technicians. On a couple of occasions, the doctors would consult with each other while examining a tooth or reviewing an x-ray. Three people were in attendance while doing implants. We never felt that any procedure was rushed or quality sacrificed.

In comparison, my US dentists have been sole proprietors trying to do everything. Or they have sent me to a specialist for a procedure like a root canal. Crowns are always done in a lab which takes a couple of weeks. Furthermore, it's not clear how good the work is since it is never peer reviewed.

I highly recommend Smiles Peru. You will save money, time and be assured that the work is done to the highest standards.

"Never thought I would say this about any dentist but I can't wait to go back!"
5 50Reviewed 13 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Crowns,Root Canals
Full mouth reconstruction

I live in Washington DC and went to Smiles Peru back in August 2016. I planned a vacation to Peru based around my dental needs and the fact that I had some friends I wanted to visit. After doing some research I chose to go to Smiles Peru.

From the minute I walked into their dental office the staff was really attentive to my needs and all were so nice to work with - from the dental assistants and orthodontists to the receptionist, office manager (Kirby) and, of course, Doctor Sylvia.

I was in need of some serious work. We are talking full mouth reconstruction (not an easy fix), cutting down my old crowns and making some provisional ones, treating more than 15 root canals, performing gum surgery, making a new post for my new crowns, fixing cavities, and getting a full mouth of new crowns as mine were about 18 years old and in serious need of change. I switched my old ones for the all porcelain Emax crown. No more porcelain fused to metal crowns which gave my teeth an opaque look. Now they look more natural and translucent and the color is a lot whiter than when I had gotten them done with someone else 18 years ago.

With the help of Dr. Sylvia Pflücker, we chose a bleach color between a 2 and a 3 as I was undecided between one or the other. I want to emphasize that I was never pressured on doing any work that I didn't absolutely want or need.

I still have to go back to Peru to finish the work as I need some fine tuning. Despite the long appointments I had during my brief visit, I needed a lot of work and we ran out of time. I had to return to the US and it was entirely my fault for not planning a longer stay in Peru. But everyone did as much as they could with the time they had to work with.

Let me say that you can't go wrong by investing your time and money with Smiles Peru. I will post an update when I am completely done with the work in early 2017....
Big thanks to all the people who took care of me! Never thought I would say this about any dentist but I can't wait to go back!

"I was very pleased with the treatment and the cost"
4.5 50Reviewed 05 May 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Fillings,Inlay or Onlay,Root Canals
I was very pleased with my treatment at smiles Peru in April 2016. My US dentist said I had a cracked molar and needed to get a crown within a year or two. Smiles Peru by email quoted me a full price of $400, including $60 for the initial examination. That was exactly what they charged (after giving me a discount for paying in cash). They said the tooth had small cracks in it and they weren't sure that it would crack more, but it was possible. They told me that they thought a crown, destroying much of the tooth could be done if I wanted that but that they would recommend a filling and porcelain overlay instead which would preserve more of the tooth. I agreed. They took out the 50 year old filling and found some decay which they cleaned They also said there was still some discoloring. If they did the most conservative treatment they would take that out as well, but that would likely expose the root and require a root canal. The discolored area was hard and they thought it was just the tooth reaction and that there was less than five percent chance that it would decay further. They put something in to deter further decay. A root canal would have taken two days more and $300 more. They treated me in two hours with initial exam and advice and then exposing and temporarily filling the hole in the molar and then the next day took out a temporary filling and put in the porcelain and overlay in another two hours. The novacane stopped any pain the first day and there was fairly minor pain putting the new filling in since there was no anesthetic the second day (sensibly - the pain was very brief and not very substantial). They had color options for the molar to match my other teeth.

They measured the overlay and filling need by optical reader and produced it in their office. It did need some adjustment - cutting it back to permit flossing of neighboring teeth and reducing the height slightly. They asked me to come back to ensure it was fine - and it was - and they didn't charge any more money. I am not an expert on teeth, but it seemed to me they did an excellent job, with excellent modern equipment and giving me options and not trying to increase the cost with treatment that I might not have wanted or needed.

The clinic

• The clinic has a number of dentists, some of whom speak English. They have modern equipment including computerized scanning of the tooth to be fixed and production within their office of the needed crown or in my case porcelain filling and overlay.


• There were a several Americans that I saw visiting the practice and some Peruvians. But they seemed to have flexibility on making a new appointment at the time I wanted the second day and a few days later. A Peruvian told me that it could be done cheaper, but she had to go back numerous times for an infected molar to her cllnic before being treated under the national insurance, so I was glad not to use them. Given my limited time and their highly professional operation, I was very pleased with the treatment and the cost. Another Peruvian clinic reviewed by "what clinic" quoted me a substantially higher price and was less convenient.

• I have no complaints whatsoever but given my lack of expertise in teeth and processes, I rated them excellent rather than something higher.

"My tooth was saved"
5 50Reviewed 24 Oct 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental X-Ray,Root Canals
A few days ago, I visited Smiles Peru to have them evaluate a molar that I had been told was cracked and it would have to be extracted. Upon looking at the X-ray taken on site, Dr. Sylvia said that there was a shadow under the filling of the tooth, but there was not a crack. The shadow turned out to be a big cavity. It was immediately removed, and then it was necessary to do a root canal. My roots were hooked, but this staff stayed with the procedure and successfully treated that tooth. My tooth was saved and a porcelain inlay was put into place the same day. I am so impressed by the professionalism of this staff, the quality of their work and certainly their perseverance in dealing with a difficult situation until they succeeded. I felt so special and truly felt that clients and their satisfaction is the goal of Smiles Peru.

This clinic was so pristine clean. The waiting area was more than adequate, and time spent there, was minimal. The dental area was sparkling white, and the staff made sure that you were very comfortable in the chair. I really like the dominance of the white and silver decor. It made you feel like you were in a very sanitary place, where your comfort and care were primary. I will return to Smiles Peru again for any future dental work I may need. It was as pleasant of an experience that I could have asked for in any dental office. The staff was professional and caring.

"My teeth look straight and white with veneers"
5 50Reviewed 24 Oct 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Veneers
I came to Smiles Peru to get veneers on both my upper and lower teeth. I am very pleased with the outcome. My teeth look straight, white, and my husband says it has taken ten years off my life. The only thing I wish I did different was come ten years earlier.

Making the decision to have dental work done at Smiles Peru was the best decision of my life. The doctors at Smiles Peru are warm, professional, and very caring. In just a few days, I received a whole new smile which has helped a lot with my confidence. You will think that you will come to Smiles Peru because of the unbeatable prices but you will learn that its the staff that makes it even more rewarding (something that you just can’t put a price on).

Fillings

Just had my annual checkup and clean, followed up by a filling. They have also informed me that aside from 1 or 2 other cavities which could do with attention, there are more fillings that can be done according to the prevailing school of thought around here which seeks to deal with lesser/minor cavities earlier, but they will be dealt with in subsequent visits. I particularly appreciated the explanation of why i suddenly have so many cavities requiring attention, and that they can be viewed as optional/not urgent.
I chose this clinic because of the reviews i saw on this site, and it is only 3 blocks away from my flat. I can genuinely say it was probably the most comfortable experience I have had in a dentist's chair. I have no basis to compare prices with as this is the first dentist I have tried in Peru, but considering how comfortable and professional the experience was, I think the prices seem fair. A special mention goes out to how delicate the cleaning was done. Up until now I believed that dentists were supposed to use a lot of force to clean teeth, but now I know that is not the case! The polishing of the filling was also done to a much better standard than the last time I remember having one, leaving me with a perfectly fitting jaw and absolutely no noticeable change in jaw alignment.

"I was most impressed"
5 50Reviewed 18 Jun 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Zoom! Teeth Whitening,Dental Implants
I had a full mouth restoration last year. My original intention was to get an implant for a missing tooth. The U.S. estimate was near $5000 of which insurance would cover $1200. When I visited SmilePeru, the dentists demonstrated how I would benefit from more extensive work, and I saw how many of my previous dental complaints were related to the conditions described by the SmilesPeru team. I had the work done in stages. They have spared no expense in acquiring the most up to date technology. Part of the treatment included Zoom Whitening which went exactly as was explained to me.

The entire process resulted in a huge improvement in my appearance. I was impressed by the courtesy, professionalism of the staff, and quality of the work. I have a lot of confidence in this dentist and on a subsequent trip I even took my wife in for a Zoom Whitening with splendid results. As we age our teeth yellow and it is remarkable how effective Zoom Whitening is. Finally, I was most impressed by the amount of money I saved having the work done at Smiles Peru. Miraflores in Lima is a superb location, safe, modern, and a great introduction to South America.

"Very, very impressed!!"
4.8 50Reviewed 20 Nov 2014 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Inlay or Onlay
Porcelain Inlays

Exceeded my expectations! Went there for 2 crowns, but unlike the protocol in Canada, the dentist would not put crowns over permanent fillings as they would not last. It was explained to me that to do this properly it would require much more invasive work and cost than I planned. She recommended that I change my fillings to porcelain inlays, which would last much longer and save my tooth. The cost was $640 USD plus 150s for the consultation. No comparison to home and the work was incredible. State of the art everything!! I would return to Lima just for quality dental work. Very, very impressed!!

Treatment Received: Root Canals,Porcelain Crown
Root canals; porcelain crowns

The staff were friendly, helpful and entirely professional. I had two root canals (one fixing a bad job my own UK dentist had done) followed by insertion of posts and porcelain crown and inlay They worked until midnight to get it all done because I had a flight out early the next morning. I was impressed with their knowledge and the fact that they have specialists to do different jobs to ensure the best work possible. The price was extremely good and far cheaper than it would have been in the US or UK. This is the place to go for dentist work if you are in Lima - or even worth a detour if you are elsewhere in Peru. Fantastic.

"Looks and works great"

Treatment Received: Porcelain Bridge
I needed to have a bridge completed and had a limited amount of time. I was quoted high prices at home in the States, and could not get the work completed as fast as I wanted it. After hearing from a friend that he has dental work completed in Peru, I did some research on the internet and contacted Smiles Peru. They were very helpful, and I was promised I could get what I needed done within a few hours and for a much lower price than what I would pay at home.

I flew to Lima, arriving in the late evening. I arrived at the clinic at 9am, and my bridge was completed and fitted by around noon. I used the rest of the day to visit tourist attractions in Miraflores. Smiles Peru even allowed me to use their apartment space in the same building to leave my things and relax during the day while I waited for my flight. I flew home about 24 hours after arriving, complete with my new temporary bridge, which looks and works great. Thanks Smiles Peru!
