Costa Rica offers quality healthcare that has many dental facilities accredited by international organizations. Many of the dentists and surgeons in Costa Rica were educated or have received training in American or western European medical institutions and have extensive scientific knowledge including quality of life, ethics and morality. The credentials of these facilities or surgeons are usually available online or upon request.
Getting to Costa Rica is easier than it has ever been. Costa Rica is just a 3-5 hour flight from most places in the United States and reached via direct flight from nearly 10 major airports in North America.
With a number of flights coming every day, you can always find air fares at an affordable price. If you are willing to travel to Costa Rica in non-peak season (May – November) you should be able to find even better deals. Costa Rica is closer than you think and flights are less expensive than you might imagine.
The number one reason why people come to Costa Rica for dental care is for the savings. What makes it even better is that you receive all those savings without compromising quality. On average, a medical tourist traveling to Costa Rica can save 40% to 70%.
Even including the travel and hotel costs, the savings are substantial. A common example would be that a dental crown in the U.S. typically costs $1,000 or more, while in Costa Rica can cost $500 or less.
This is the same crown and implant that would be used in the US. When it comes to more complex dental and medical work, the savings can be even greater.
