I had total mouth reconstruction, implants, bone grafts, crowns, bridgework, etc. DentaVac is very professional and did a beautiful job in ensuring that the work was to my liking. One thing that I particularly valued was that they have a range of dentists and specialists all working out of their same clinic. There is no running from this office to the next.

Another thing I liked was that the cost was itemized for each tooth and there was absolutely no "grey area". We chose the plan that seemed best and there were no bad surprises.

I totally recommend DentaVac. Dr. Hall is from the U.S. and although he doesn't actually practice dentistry in Costa Rica, he is an excellent advisor for the process, based on his experience as a cosmetic dentist.

In addition, this clinic was about half the cost of Prisma, who we also consulted before making a decison.

I had a successful outcome with Dentavac: 1 extraction, 2 crowns and some bonding. Professional, nice people but most importantly high quality work at a reasonable cost. :)

i'm starting to doubt that these are genuine posts. i mean really, why would someone create an account on a travel website to complain about bad healthcare?
