The industry of Medical Tourism is booming, with it so is the reputation of Costa Rica for being one of the most affordable countries to have surgical procedures in. This destination is a tourist favorite, not just for the significantly lower bills (compared to those in the States), but also for the warm weather, experienced and friendly professionals, and obviously the opportunity to get to know and explore this beautiful country. Dental Implants can be cost as much as 50% less than in the United States, without compromising the quality of the procedure.

Affordable dental implants in Costa Rica

So, how did Costa Rica became one of the strongest destinations in the industry of Medical Tourism? Since medical treatments in Costa Rica are in average 40% to 70% less expensive than in the US and Canada—and they don't ask Americans, Canadians and most Europeans for an entrance visa for stays shorter than 90 days —, more and more tourists are choosing this beautiful country to get their procedures done.

 People often wonder why does it cost less. Since the dental tourism market is very competitive, dentists and clinics have to stay ahead and offer great services and prices while maintaining high standards of care and hygiene. The lower cost of dental work in Costa Rica is not a reflection of lower quality, but more the lower cost of living that the country has compared to the vast majority of North America. 

 Actually, the success rates of dental implantation in Costa Rica are as high as 95 percent when they are performed in a specialty clinic, just like ours, according to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS).

Dental tourism

 Thanks to this rise in medical tourism due to an excellent reputation, we've had more and more potential patients drawn to our services and procedures, done in our clinic; located in the exclusive and distinguished area of Escazú, in San José, Costa Rica.

 This is possible thanks to three big factors: quality surgeons, and the use of the best materials and technology in the market.

 You can sometimes fall into the misconception that the best possible hands are only available in the States or Canada. Wrong. Equally experienced and prepared doctors can help you have the smile you've always wanted, for a more convenient and affordable price.

 Another misconception that you might have is that the variety of the procedures that we practice may be limited. Wrong again. You can find pretty much all dental specialties in Costa Rica, from dental implants to All on 4, crowns, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and a full mouth reconstruction.

 One of our most required services is the procedure of placing dental implants. Dental Implants are widely popular because they are the only restorative alternative that not only preserves the jawbone but also stimulates its growth.

 Even though Dental Implants are easily the most expensive way to get teeth replacement, they are also the longest-lasting. But then again, its way cheaper to have it done in Costa Rica.

Don’t take just our word for it. Visit the several testimonials of American citizens who've had visited us here at American Dental, and experienced first hand the quality of our job.
