I went to Costa Rica for dental work. I had major work to do. I checked many offices because I had time to do that. I had a full mouth restoring. I am very happy. I saved 75% of what my US dentist wanted to charge me. I saved about $70,000 USD.!!! The dentist I went to was very caring and did really good work. My US dentist told me she was shocked at the good work and the cheap price. The office had better machines like xrays and tooth making machines in the laboratory and even the novacane shots were done by a special machine. The doctors were all really expert and all of the people workiing made me feel like I was special. I went to Dr. Marco Cavalini Dentist.
Costa Rica is very safe and there are many things to do.

I had emergency medical care at CIMA Hospital. I came from the U.S. and was sick on the airplane with food poisoning. I was taken to CIMA emergency when I landed in Costa Rica. Their care was rapid, efficient, friendly and the entire cost was less than 1 x-ray would have cost in the States. I had 3 IV's, every test they could run, medication, outstanding, considerate care that I paid for out of my pocket as I have no insurance.
Thank you Costa Rica.
