Cosmetic dental procedures, often considered a luxury, are within your reach in Costa Rica. For 50-70% less than their cost in the United States, English-speaking dentists will treat you with state-of-the-art technology and the world's most cutting-edge procedures. Discover how you can take advantage of the country's highly trained dental professionals at bargain rates.
In addition to being one of Latin America's top vacation spots, Costa Rica has established itself as a popular dental tourism destination. A four to seven hour plane ride from many North American cities, the journey is both short and affordable – round-trip airfare can be purchased for $500 or less.
At home, even with dental insurance, you may have to pay up to 40% the cost of essential mouth surgeries and elective dental procedures. As these fees rise, Costa Rica's affordable dental services and excellent tourism industry have combined to create an unbeatable medical-vacation duo. For less than the cost of the same procedures at home, you'll enjoy expert care, a luxury recovery (if needed), and an exotic vacation.
The country's dental clinics promise the same quality as those back home, and also emphasize personalized patient care. Many dental professionals have received their educations and trained abroad, so they speak excellent English and understand the needs and concerns of international patients.
Adding to your comfort, recovery facilities in Costa Rica are extremely affordable, often averaging $100-$150 per night for posh lodging, nursing assistance, all meals, airport transfers and transportation to your dental appointments.
