Costa Rica Dental prices
Every year, thousands of travelers, mostly Americans, hop on a jet or cruise ship and travel south for Costa Rica to receive dental care. The reason for this journey? American dentists charge highly for various dental procedures, and many Americans can rarely afford these cost. Costa Rica dentists are way cheaper, and you can get any dental care procedure for almost 60-70% less than in the US. Unfortunately, four of every ten Americans don't have dental insurance, and the cost of many dental procedures is simply so prohibitive that they go without needed care. And, even for those fortunate to have dental insurance, the deductible or co-pay often leads to the same result.
Dental implants are illustrative of the problem Americans face. Even primary implants can cost thousands of dollars each. Can you imagine being charged nearly $9,000 for just three implants? The American dental establishment has defended the costs by arguing that American dentists are highly trained in American universities and use American-made, hence high quality, implants. One has to wonder, then, how it can be that Costa Rica dentists, also highly trained, many of whom are graduates of American dental schools, can offer low-cost dental implants using the same American-made implants used in the States.
The short answer, in part, is this. American dentists can charge what they do because, for many years, consumers haven't had anywhere else to go. That's no longer the case. Just a few hours from the States lies tiny Latin American country, long famous for its tropical vacations (Costa Rica). 800 miles of beaches on two vast oceans, magnificent volcanoes, and a country committed to developing medical and dental tourism characterized by high-quality care coupled with amazingly affordable prices.
So much will you pay for dental care in Costa Rica?
Quality dental care is so affordable in Costa Rica that more than a third of all its medical tourists now come for dental surgery or dental implants. Implants costing up to $3,000 in the United States are typically priced between $500 and $750 in this tropical paradise. That's 75%+ cheaper than some dental offices charge in America for the same procedure.
Periodontal surgery that is at least $2,500 in America will only cost you about $400 in Costa Rica. Great care at a fantastic price and enough money left over to enjoy a great Costa Rica vacation. With American dental costs heading into the stratosphere, tens of thousands of U.S. patients, armed with the internet or informed from the experiences of their friends and family, now travel south and combine dental tourism with their Costa Rica vacations.
For years, many Americans traveled to Mexico for their vacations and dental procedures but, with the terrible violence now wracking it, it's considered simply too dangerous for many travelers or medical tourists.
