How to Choose the Best Dental Clinic in Costa Rica?

Whether you want to straighten your teeth, fix a toothache, or improve the appearance of your teeth, Costa Rica dental clinics can do it all.

However, when looking for dental work abroad, take the time to find the right clinic, research your options, and compare prices.

Here is a 3-step guide on how to seek dental treatments in Costa Rica as an international patient.

Step 1: Research Costa Dental Care Clinics

Look for accreditations, reviews, guarantees, dentists’ areas of expertise, education, experience, and spoken languages.

You can also get information on standards from international organizations such as:

  • The FDI World Dental Federation
  • International College of Dentists
  • International Congress of Oral Implantologists
  • International Society of Computerized Dentistry
  • International Association of Orthodontists
  • World Federation of Orthodontists

Step 2: Analyse Timeframe and Costs

Share your dental concerns, X-ray, or 3D CT scan to get customized treatment plan with costs and timescales.

Note: The quotes you get at this point are estimates based on your photos and basic information.

Most Costa Rican dentists will work within their given quotes and timeframe. However, things may vary after a personal examination.

Step 3: Planning the Trip

If you are happy with the treatment plan, you can plan the whole trip yourself or get the help of a reliable dental tourism agency.

Some Costa Rica clinics also facilitate the dental trip.

Researching a high-quality dental clinic in Costa Rica can sometimes be challenging.

But, MTC makes it easier for patients to contact certified dentists and verified dental clinics abroad.

All you need to do to get in contact with the best clinic in Costa Rica is to fill out the online quote form outlining your dental needs.

MTC will do the rest and select a suitable dental clinic for you.
