Dental Tourism in Costa Rica

Dental Tourism in Costa Rica has been popular for many years now, particularly with Americans and Canadians.

According to the Euromonitor, about 90% of plastic surgery and dentistry work in Costa Rican hospitals is performed on foreign tourists. Thus, when you choose Costa Rica for dental work, you are making a decision that many have made before you.

Unlike other dental tourist locations, it is common for many to combine dental work with a vacation in Costa Rica.

Low cost of dental treatment is, of course, the primary reason for this popularity. But there are other benefits, too, which are discussed here.

Why Costa Rica is Popular for Dental Vacations?

Low Cost Dentistry in Costa Rica: Dental packages in Costa Rica include all costs like X-ray, prosthesis, etc., at the clinic, and the dentist’s fees, and yet they are 50-70% cheaper than what you will find in the US, UK, Canada, and most developed countries. For the 100 million plus people in the US without dental insurance, dental holidays to Costarica is easily an attractive option.

Proximity and Convenience: Costa Rica is quite close to the US and Canada, and this makes traveling for dental care very hassle-free. It does not take more than 4-7 hours of travel from the US, depending on which city you are flying from. Many major US cities have daily non-stop flights to Costa Rica. Also, US and Canadian citizens who have passports valid for 6 months do not need a visa to enter Costa Rica for stay of less than three months.
