''Hi, I am Sheila. I have three children, and am a retired person.
I was having a lot of problems with my teeth. I had four teeth in my lower jaw that were so loose they were ready to fall out.
I had no teeth on the left side of my mouth. It was very embarrassing, it was also very hard to chew. And I needed dental work.
The price of dental treatment in the US is so exorbitant and I couldn't afford it. And I found out that by going to Costa Rica, I could save more than half the money.
Communication from Medical Tourism Corporation
was great. There were no problems with the setup. I flew to Costa Rica. I
was met at the airport by a man holding a signboard with my name on it, and
he took me immediately to the dental office.
The dental clinic in Costa Rica was clean, and no different from any dental clinic in the US. The equipment was modern and up-to-date. Most people I spoke with could speak English very well. The doctor was very fluent in English, there was no communication problem.
I had 24 teeth done: dental bridges and dental crowns. That's a lot of teeth. The preliminary work was done in 2 and 1/2 hours. When I left the dental office that day, I had temporary teeth in my mouth. I was never without teeth, I was never embarrassed.
On my last day in Costa Rica, I had a final appointment at the dental clinic to make sure everything was fine. And they drove me to the airport. As a matter of fact, I was there in Costa Rica from Tuesday to Tuesday and I had Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday free for sightseeing.
The dental work cost me somewhere near $7,000. In the US, it would have been much closer to $25,000.
It's now been about 6-7 months since my dental vacation in Costa Rica. And my teeth are gorgeous. They are perfect; they are white, and pretty.
I would recommend everybody go there. It was a wonderful experience. We had no problems at all. You can combine dental work with a vacation. Costa Rica is one of the prettiest countries in the world.
There are cheaper places [in Costa Rica] to get this work done. But I chose this particular dental clinic because the dentist is internationally trained, he is doing continuing education all the time. He spoke English 100%. He had a lab on the same floor as his office.''
