Anyone have any experiences at Dentavac in CR? Any recs?

Hello! Like many of you, I'm seriously considering traveling to Costa Rica to have extensive dental work done, as cost are prohibitive in the US. I know I have a lot more research to do, as there are so MANY postings on this topic, but I'm curious if anyone has had any experience with Dentavac. I have read one or two reviews and several postings by the same person...has anyone else had any experience with them? Or any other recommendations?

Iverson4000,

Looks like this is the third time you've posted the same question today. Although this is a travel forum, there are many people who are willing to offer advice on medical or dental work in CR.

If you like, I can PM you about an excellent dentist in Liberia.

Hi - I used to travel from London (UK) to Costa Rica and got all my dental work done in Costa Rica. Excellent work, which I could not afford in Europe. I did everything with Dr. Bernal Pacheco Rawson. He used to be a professor at university, for dentistry, and both his children also work at the clinic and are specialised in nerve treatment and implants. I highly recommend Dr Pacheco. If you are travelling, he can do everything quickly. You need to shop around, as in Costa Rica there is no "market price", everybody charges what they want, so you may get quite different price ranges. For example, Escazu and Santa Ana is where all rich people live, so you may find that services are more expensive compared to Alajuela or San Jose. Shop around and ask for quotes. Email me if you wish more info.

Hi highly recommend Dentavac. I have been going there for 5 years and send many of our clients there looking for extensive dental work recommendations. They speak English, the office is clean, state of the art equipment and the prices fair. I would not look any where else.

NOVA dental hands down for me! Personally had extensive work done there in March. Spotless, Professional Hands On Dentists, Educated in US at top Universities with flawless English tho Native Costa Ricans. These guys do their Country proud. I will not consider anywhere else in the future! No games, extremely reasonable pricing. They allow the Patient options for procedures and most importantly pricing. They charged me, to the penny exactly what they estimated. Saved 58% over Dental quote in Florida. Will be back in the Fall for final crowns. NO worries with this Operation!

Hello,

I started going to Dentavac last year to have extensive dental work performed. Yhe dentist at dentavac are very professional and hard working. My first visit resulted in a 2 hour consultation where all options for my treatment wasexplained in great detail. I needed 4 root canals, 4 implants/with crowns and a total of 19 additional crowns. The first week I spent about 35 hours in the dental chair. It shoull go without saying that I know everyone at Dentacvac very well. Dentavac has a lab onsite which should be an important consideration for anyone seeking dental treatment in any country. 2 trips later to Dentavac, I have the smile I always wanted. My brother has also gone to Dentavac. He is very happy with the results he recieved. Email Dr. Hall at Dentavac and he can provide you with information and pricing. I saved about 70% toatal compared to the states including travel expenses: flight ,hotel,food and weekends vacationing to the pacific and Arenal. My brother realized similiar savings. Even my mother had her dentures done at Dentavac. I always stay at Costa Verde Inn in Ezcasu. Great inexpensive place to stay and relax after hours in the chair. Let me know if I can provide additional information. Pura Vida!

Just finished a total reconstruction and could not recommend DentaVac any more highly than I do. They were fantastic from start to finish, totally professional and state of the art, they were clear and concise in their treatment plan and stuck to the prices stated, and they were just plain kind and attentive. I am thrilled with my new teeth.
