Dr. Anglada and his practice do superb work. You can contact them at: aanglada@implants.co.cr

I am returning next month for the second stage of my implants. Like many of the dentists I contacted before choosing Dr. Anglada (he was neither the cheapest nor most expensive, but had the best recommendations), he will contact tou about your treatment, arrange a pick up at the airport and may even suggest hotels. Dr. Anglada does the surgery for 'stage 1' and Dr. Castro does the finish work in 'stage 2'.

I had two extractions (lower right molars 31 and 29) and two implants. There will be a bridge connecting 31 and 29 over the missing tooth 30. The bill is $4014.

There is seriously a discussion going on here ! I work on contract and for the past 2 years I spend at least 4 months in Costa Rica, seriously I hate going to the dentist and definitely abhor tooth pain, so alas what could I do but to make an appointment when my toothache simply did not subside! Since I live near La Sabana, for me it was natural to make an appointment at Prisma, besides my boss had his whole mouth restoration there as well as his wife and his daughter had her braces placed there too. I was attended by Dr. Hernandez and he was simply sent from heaven, I have never been under the care of a specialist that was so detailed, so clear and who gave me all the options and explained the technical words in plain English. This tooth which I am speaking about had been cleaned and restored but was aching again after 6 months, it turns out I had an infection already going. I was pretty lucky, actually to be able to visit Dr. Hernandez, in the end the tooth had to be pulled out and I opted for an implant, which was NOT done on the same day. As for all of those who are interested in dentistry in Costa Rica, all I can say is: make an appointment, ask for prices, compare them and decide for yourself. After this experience I am no longer postponing my visits to the dentist.

Hi,

I see your posting is from quite awhile ago. So I figure you have had plenty of time to experience the longer term success or failure of the dental work you had done at Nova. I need similar extensive work done; implants, crowns, etc.

How are you holding up now? Still recommend Nova?

Also, if anyone else is reading this; can anyone tell me the deal with the Costa Rica Dental outfit? They supposedly help you with your plans for FREE, which, hate to sound cynical, but is a red flag. How and why do they do it for free? Has anyone used that service?

Thanks!
