Costa Rica Dental Tourism

When you travel abroad for dental care, you have concerns.  You have questions. We understand that. We have been there ourselves.

With our free service, we provide you with your very own personal guides.  In fact, you will have at least two of them, one in your home country (USA or Canada) who you can talk with via phone and email and another person in Costa Rica for you to access.

If you like, your Costa Rica guide will meet you upon arrival, show you around, take you to your bed & breakfast or hotel and show you “the ropes”, sorta speak.

Of course, how much guidance and “hand holding” you want while in Costa Rica is up to you.  In other words, our service is tailored to your personal needs. You tell us and it will be done!

From the moment we are contacted to the day you leave Costa Rica to return home, we are there for you to contact for anything, even if it’s to answer the smallest of questions.

Our concierge service is all about helping you feel secure and satisfied with your dental care in Costa Rica.

Our staff has been in your position.  We started out with concerns. We did the research. We asked the questions.  We booked the flight, booked the lodging, made the dental appointment and we sat in the chair!

We know there are no dumb questions.  We know what it’s like to not speak the local language or know the local customs.  And we know what it’s like to read all the scary reviews, how to put the positive and the negative online reviews in perspective with the real world.

The dental implant specialist and general dentists that we partner with are well experienced working with Americans and Canadians. In fact, 80% of their patients are from North America.  They speak English and Spanish, and some speak other languages, too.

Most importantly, they are well-respected and experienced in dentistry and in their respective specialties.  The owner is a graduate of the University of Miami and he has performed thousands of dental implants.  The clinic is approved by Blue Cross in Costa Rica, and I understand they are the only one so approved.

Past clients include the Miss Costa Rica Beauty Contestants. Maybe you’ll see some while you’re there!  But don’t count on it. :)-

In short, we understand your concerns, and those very concerns are what spawned this website to exist.

Helping you with ALL your travel and dental needs with a personal touch is what we do. I know when I journeyed to Costa Rica for dental care, having someone there to call on and show me around was a nice feeling because it removed the uncertainty of traveling to a place where I was not familiar with the local customs.
