Costa Rica Dental Team met us at the airport and picked us up. Great service. When we arrived, we were impressed with the technology in the dental offices. They have a small pen-like camera hooked to a widescreen monitor to view the inside of the mouth. They pointed out to me the gingivitis and specifically that at each nickel-metal crown.
This was an allergic reaction to the nickel! The crowns were porcelain on nickel. They not only did the other necessary work, but removed these problematic crowns, so that my gums will get better. They also intended to remake a crown on a canine upper tooth. It had been a root canal sometime before. About 2 months ago, the crown came loose and was hanging by a very narrow fiber post. Our local dentist put a new crown on with a bigger fiber post. Just a couple days before our CR trip, it broke loose again.
At the CR dental office they pointed out that it was simply a butt joint, and the root should have had a crown lengthening for the crown to wrap some of the root. Then they discovered some decay inside the root canal. And they had to extract the root! I personally think that our local dentist failed to give good dentistry. That would have been a crown lengthening instead of the weak joint, a significantly sturdier post, and identifying the decay that had already started. Our local dentist…examined the work done by Costa Rica Dental Team and said that the materials and workmanship were superior to their own services. There is much more that I could say.
I had an implant, scaling, whitening and cleaning done. I want to congratulate you on running a world-class operation. You have a wonderful team that takes their profession to a new high with their demeanor and caring and friendly disposition. Alex did an awesome job on my implant and I will be returning with my wife for several implants, veneers and crowns that she needs. Then there is Natalie, a wonderful human being and a rock-star dentist. I had been misdiagnosed in USA and thanks to her expert judgment, it ended up being a case that required deep cleaning and scaling. She did a great job in doing that and my problematic gum started to heal the very next day when I returned for the implant procedure. Can’t praise her work enough!
Once again I would like to thank you for wonderful work. It feels great and looks awesome. I am very happy with everything. Thank you very much.
Mike and Natalie – I would like to express my gratitude to the both of you for promptly resolving my situation with my old crown. When I get back from my deployment I would like to get all of my other work done. I am trying to convince my mom to travel to Costa Rica with me so she can get some quality dental work done. You and your staff are the best.
Mike, It has been 7 months now since I got my new teeth and I LOVE them! Thank for for talking me into the “whitening color”. It is just what I wanted and they look so natural.
Super TLC! Your staff is awesome. You are so superior to our dentist at home. Thank you.
My teeth are great and I really enjoyed my visit and appreciate your great staff…
I recently had 11 root canals and crown lengthening surgery on three quadrants of my mouth from the professionals at Costa Rica Dental Team (returning in 2 months for 28 crowns). The professionals here make even the most dreaded dental work seem like a breeze.
The day after having surgery on 75% of my mouth I was able to take an all day excursion to the Arenal hot springs! I did not have any pain or discomfort and everything healed perfectly.
I will be saving $40k on my dental work and have had time to squeeze in some beautiful sites of Costa Rica. Their technology is as good, or better, than my dentist in the U.S. and of course the price savings is more than worth the trip. The most important thing for me is that the everyone at this dental practice treats you like family and actually considered my preferences when working up a treatment plan.
The professionalism and “art” performed by Dr. Yelda Fernandez at Costa Rica Dental Team, has been beyond description. Thanks to all of you for restoring my smile. Thanks to Jeff for all of his assistance in making my stay as convenient and enjoyable as possible. Will return if for no other reason to just say hello and enjoy Costa Rica.
You have quite a wonderful team working for you. They are professional and very kind. My husband decided to have some whitening done when he saw how competent your people were. Thank you for providing such nice service.
Just a quick note to say how happy I am with the treatment I received. Your staff is great and I appreciate how caring they are. I have had no problems with any of the procedures and the crowns are perfect. They dental guard already arrived and it is good, just have to get used to it. Tell everyone how pleased I was and how fantastic they are!
We liked the personal service and results of their work so much, that we are actually thinking about going back and getting more elective work done. We could get get this work done in the states, but why not get some cost savings and a vacation for the same price!!!
I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet you while I was there to tell you in person how impressed I was with your clinic and the great staff you have working for you. I was absolutely amazed at the quality of care given to me by Dr Yelda and Dr. Maripaz. It wasn’t just the excellent work they performed every day it was also how they came across with their patient.
I was made very comfortable by them and I feel like I made true friends. After the first day in the chair I had complete confidence in Yelda and Maripaz. I was also impressed with your other staff, particularly Paola, Paul and Eugenio. They were immensely helpful during my stay. I could go on and on but I’m sure that you have heard this many times before. Again I thank all of you and your team for a pleasant experience and should I need further dental work you will see me again.
We have finally stopped traveling and we are home. Paul is doing extremely well with his teeth. He eats everything, it’s amazing!!! He just loves them!!!
I wanted to speak with you before I left today to compliment you and your staff for their efficiency, professionalism, and friendliness. Dr. Fernandez, Carolina, Paola, Michelle, Eugenio, and Pauli are all assets to your practice and make a daunting experience very comfortable.
You have put together a remarkably sensitive and caring team and I want to congratulate you on that.
Thank you a thousand times for your professionalism, I will wholeheartedly recommend Costa Rica Dental Team without reservation.
As the week winds down I want to extend my appreciation for all the work that has been done and the happiness it has brought Myrna. This is something she has wanted for a long time and going “overseas” certainly was not without apprehension but your hospitality and in- patient attention and care are unsurpassed based on Myrna’s previous experiences. I really cannot imagine doing anymore dental work with anybody else.
Once again thank-you very much for everything and rest assured that you will receive the highest recommendations to our friends, associates and on social media..
First…how wise was I to choose to have you good folk work with me! Could not have done better. I am sure you appreciate there is some anxiety about choosing dental services at a distance. However, Costa Rica Dental Team does such an excellent job of presenting its services and the comments on the dental tourism blogs provide a good basis for forming an intuition. My best guess fell far short of the actual experience. You almost make dental work FUN!
I experienced absolutely no discomfort or pain following the insertions (good work and thanks, Alex).
Thanks and good wishes.
