Da Vinci’s Dental Care ranked also top of the list for the level of expertise
available in the clinic, however Meza Dental came out top for their level of dental facilities available, Tasbash Dentistry for the level of services provided to patients, and Morera Fujiwara Dental for their levels of patient feedback.
For a country that is highly frequented by expats and medical tourists, with an excellent healthcare provision in other sectors, the overall GCR Score of the top clinics was unexpectedly lower than that of other countries worldwide where private dentistry costs are similar, such as Poland and Thailand.
As of Sep 2015, the average pay for a Dentist in Costa Rica is approximately $4,900 per month. Expats will find that most dentists in Costa Rica speak fluent English and a typical dentist consultation cost is about $33.00.
Costa Rica is on the same timezone as the US, and just a 3-5hr flight away, making it a strong alternative to having dentistry abroad in Mexico or crossing to Thailand.
When we asked Da Vinci’s Dental Care about what makes their clinic so successful in Costa Rica, they replied:
“We look at dentistry from a team approach and make it a priority to use the latest science and highest technology available today, such as Digital Smile Design Technology. When a person is involved in every step of their dental treatment, in a truly interactive way, it ensures the successful treatment for the patient and for the future of their oral health. We believe that applying new science and digital technology like the GCR can further enhance healthcare worldwide.”
