SMILE IN COSTA RICA

Costa Rica has become one of the most popular dentistry destinations worldwide. The standard of dental care is one of the highest and most affordable available and in a desirable location. With its proximity to the USA and Europe, the travel expenses justify the trip and the experience.

Can you imagine going on a trip where you learn to stand-up paddleboard, snorkel on the reef of a pirate island, watch monkeys swing from trees, zip lining through the primary rainforest, deep sea fishing, eating fine cuisine, exploring sea caves and at the same time improving your health and appearance. All this while you are saving money. Come home smiling! You have been on a Dental Vacation with Mora & Valdez Advanced Dentistry.

Costa Rica is well known for its high quality, affordable dental, and medical work, but most of the specialist have clinics in the city of San Jose. We are located only 3 hours away on the Costa Ballena (Whale Coast) in the town of Bahia Ballena, Uvita, a popular and affordable destination. Rather than traveling to see the rainforest, beaches, and abundant wildlife, you are already there. Our famous landmark is a giant sandbar in the shape of a Whales Tail where large pods of these giant mammals can be seen migrating. The whole area is surrounded by the coastal mountains and rainforest. It is a natural atmosphere that promotes recovery and still provides multiple options for activities and tours.

The cost of our dental services compared to the costs you face back home will make you consider dental tourism in Costa Rica as part of your next vacation.

“The cost of dental care in Costa Rica is actually less than half the price of the same service you can get in the United States. But is cost the only reason why you should go to Costa Rica to get dental care? Not really. Below are some of the other reasons why you should consider traveling to this beautiful country for dental services. Costa Rica’s geographical location plays a big part in making it a great destination spot for Westerners and Europeans alike. Costa Rica’s nearness to the US, Canada, and other European countries, a mere 4-7 hours flight, lure tourists to travel to this country. Another plus factor is that visa is not required of American and Canadian citizens who wish to stay for less than three months. Another reason why people should go to Costa Rica for dental care is the standard of dental care in there.

Since The World Health Organization ranked Costa Rica’s health care system higher than the system in the United States, patients are assured that they will get the best medical service there is. It is also worth mentioning that the dental clinics and hospitals in Costa Rica are modern, clean and use first-rate prostheses and dental equipment like those used in the US, UK and Canada since most are imported from the said countries. Furthermore, they use the newest technology in the market to diagnose and treat dental illnesses. Lastly, dental health care providers in Costa Rica are highly qualified since they studied and trained in prestigious dental schools in the United States and Europe. They are also more experienced in doing some dental treatments than some American dentists as they have had years doing dental procedures that are not yet or just newly approved in the US.”
