"I have no hesitation on recommending him to anyone"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 14 Apr 2012 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Dental Crowns, Root Canals
implants, crowns and root canals

I decided on Costa Rica after reading 100s of reviews on Dentistry from around the world and Dr Alberto Coto Calvo’s name from San Jose Costa Rica kept standing out so I contacted him by email, he promptly responded with the answers to my questions and after more emails the journey began from Australia. On arrival my wife and I were picked up from the airport by the doctor' driver Mauricio at 10.00pm and taken to Casa Lima hotel in Rohr Moser San Jose (very reasonably priced, clean and very friendly. Look it up on the internet). The next morning I was taken to the surgery by Mauricio to meet Doctor Alberto and have the initial consultation. Mauricio is the Doc' driver who picks you up and takes you back to the airport also back and forth to the surgery. After being checked out I was given an excellent quote and sent for a panoramic x-ray but unfortunately it was found that I needed a small bone graft at the back and it wasn’t practical for me to come back in four months to have more implants to that area so on ‘Docs’ advice it was suggested that I have 3 implants and 18 zirconium crowns and also 2 root canals done. The work Doctor Alberto has done on me is just amazing and when my wife seen the finish results she decided to have some work done herself, 7 crowns on back teeth, Scrapped scaled and cleaned also zoom whitened, a total cost after discounts for cash for both of us was the fantastic price of just on $11,150, in Australia you would be looking at 6 to 8 times that amount. When I left Australia I thought that this Dentist, Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo would be GOOD and he turned out to be just that, he doesn’t seem to be money driven and is more interested in looking to his patients needs seeing that everything is OK. He along with his staff worked until midnight on the night before we left on my wife’s teeth to make sure she was finished and everything was perfect because she made the decision late in our holiday to have the work done. All the work is done on the premises by Doctor Alberto and his staff Daniela, Diego, Ricardo and Carlos and they are just like a big happy family. I really can’t speak highly enough of this dentist, his professionalism and manner towards his patients is second to none and I have no hesitation on recommending him to anyone. Les Bates.

Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I was told by my young dentist in the states that I needed three crowns. Dr. Coto did digital x-rays and could find no such needs and told me so. He did not try to make money off me unnecessarily. Had digital x-rays, cleaning, and erosion cavity filled for under 200 dollars!

"I have healed perfectly"
100%Reviewed 12 Feb 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals
Treatment was just like any other dental treatment in the USA. I felt the tools were clean. The dentist was professional. I didn't feel like they were trying to up-sell me any unneeded services. They picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off all at no additional cost. If you don't have dental insurance in the US why not spend the extra money you would save on a flight and have the work done in Costa Rica

I was nervous about getting dental work in a foreign country but Jehova Rapha made me as comfortable as possible. It's been a month since having two root canals and two extractions and I have healed perfectly and I saved hundreds of dollars. If I ever need dental work in the future I know where I'll return!

"Excellent job"
100%Reviewed 18 Nov 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Bridges
Did 10 implant lower jaw and upper did really good job. The only complain I had is that when we went they just move to a new place 2 days after the surgery and the smell of paint was terrible. But his job was excellent very helpful and easy to communicate. His staff are very friendly.
We going back this March 2016 for crowns.

Brand new and clean. We rented a place and car in Santa Ana was a little far but we were happy about it just don't like to pay toll fee in and out of San Jose. They offer us a ride but my husband wanted to rent a car which is unnecessary.

"All our dental work was wonderful."
100%Reviewed 26 Sep 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Dental Crowns
Very satisfied, but needed a little more info regarding after care. My husband had five implants and ten crowns. We were not advised to use ice for swelling after we left. A lot of swelling. On his next appointment, I asked for ice after because he started to swell immediately. When I asked for ice, they did not have any. So, I walked down the street and bought ice, and it did the trick. Immediately, the swelling went down. Again, we were very satisfied with our dentist and all the work was wonderful.

Great! Coming back in December to finish the work. Really grateful for the contact through our medical doctor who also had dental work done here. We have recommended to your friends and everyone we meet to come here and have any dental work that they might need. While the bed-and-breakfast they recommended was very nice, great food, it did not have air-conditioning and offered a double bed for two. We needed a little more comfort than that when we were doing dental work

"It has been a week since my surgery, and I am actually looking forward to my return."
100%Reviewed 29 Aug 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Extractions
I contacted Jehovah Rapha Dental Centere after arriving in Costa Rica on vacation with my family. We had scheduled appointments with another dental facility, however, after our visit, my husband and I both agreed that it was not a good fit for our family. We began searching, and being a pastor in the U.S., I was naturally drawn to the name (Jehovah Rapha). We were able to get an appointment immediately! It was a very busy time for Dr. Coto, but he agreed to meet with me and my husband anyhow. The spirit of this man without question is remarkable! He exudes genuine humility and compassion toward his patients. His knowledge base in the area of implant surgery is expansive. We were sold at first glance. He personally drove us back to our hotel after our first visit. At my second visit, which was I believe was four days later, I received ten implants and five extractions. I chose to have IV sedation because I am the biggest chicken ever when it comes to having dental work of any type performed. Surprisingly, I never felt the IV enter my arm! First time that has ever happened! Kudos to the young man who started my IV. My apologies for not remembering his name. In addition to this, Dr. Koto did not charge me for the sedation or extractions! Now who does that? After placing my IV, I was led to the area where my surgery would be carried out. Before putting me to sleep, Dr. Coto and his staff surrounded me and began to pray. Enough said! I never felt worried or concerned about anything. I was completely at ease. It has been a week since my surgery, and I am actually looking forward to my return to have my work completed in January. I stated that my husband also had work performed. He had an abscess and was given a root canal on that tooth. He also received veneers and had approximately six old fillings removed and replaced. Our appointment times were at different times, and our hotel was not nearby because as I stated our appointment was made after having arrived in Costa Rica. However, this was no problem because Dr. Coto has an archangel in the name of Mr. Olger Gonzalez who was at our disposal, driving us to and from all appointments. Olger is a gem! He was so very helpful in calming my anxiety prior to the day of surgery. He even took me out to lunch while my husband was having his dental work completed. What else is there to say? If you are in need of dental surgery and you don't care to pay the outrageous dental cost in the US, Jehovah Rapha (Dr. Coto) should be your only choice. The team and doctor are second to none. Thanks, guys, for everything! Total bill this visit was less than $10,000.

The clinic was clean with state of art dental equipment. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Every question I had, they were more than happy to answer. Simply an outstanding team of professionals.

"Looking to get great dental work at an affordable price!"
100%Reviewed 25 Jan 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fillings, Root Canals, Dental Crowns
Dental crowns.

I contacted Dr. Cotos' office and spoke with Olger Gonzalez regarding some dental work that I needed to get done. They were very attentive and knowledgeable regarding the treatment that I wanted to get done. In Florida, I received a finalized treatment plan which was for three veneers and abutment/crown for an implant, which was going to cost me about $7000. Dr. Cotos' office did it for far less, approximately $1400. Once I got to Costa Rica, I decided to do some preliminary procedures done as well like a root canal ($350) and four fillings ($250) since the prices were very affordable. Alexander Montero, which is the general orthodontist, did the root canal and the fillings; he was fantastic! Very professional, and made the entire procedure pain-free. Dr. Coto did the crowns afterward and I was very pleased with the end results. The staff is very professional, very knowledgeable, and their resources, such as materials and technology, are up to modern standards. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone looking to get great dental work at an affordable price!
