See below for details

Deposit
After you feel completely confident in receiving care from a dentist in our select network, we require a refundable $200 deposit/fee be made. The deposit allows us to fully confirm and schedule your procedure date and time with the dentist. $100 of the deposit will be applied toward your total dental costs at the end of your treatment and $100 is a fee for our services.  Costa Rican Dental Solutions does not increase or “pad” your dental treatment costs or any other cost to cover this deposit/fee.  

*Should you decide to cancel your treatment for any reason, the $200 deposit/fee is refundable 14 days prior to your first scheduled dental appointment with the exception of a $50 service fee.  The $200 deposit/fee is only completely forfeited if you cancel within 14 days of your first appointment.  If you don't confirm a first appointment date, the deposit is refundable 30 days from the date you made the deposit/fee with the exception of a $50 service fee.  Past 30 days, the deposit/fee is non-refundable.

Payment
You will pay for your treatment directly with the dentist. Except for the deposit mentioned above, you pay nothing for your procedures(s) prior to your first appointment.  

Most of our dentists require 50% of your total dental cost at the beginning of treatment and the remaining 50% upon completion.  Some of our providers have variations on when payments are due.  However, full payment is never required up front.  Prior to departing for Costa Rica, you will be provided with clear instructions on how your chosen provider requests payment. There will never be any surprises and we’re always available if you have any questions or concerns.

All of our dentists accept major credit cards as well as direct bank wire transfers.

Accommodations/Tours

Many patients take advantage of our exclusive negotiated rates with hotel and other accommodation providers.  Costa Rican Dental Solutions requires reservations and payments be made at least 7 days prior to departing for Costa Rica.

All Payments are fully refundable if reservations are canceled more than 7 days prior to the first night of stay.  If reservations are cancelled less than 7 days prior to your first day stay, all payments will be refunded with the exception of a charge equal to the rate of one night of accommodations.

Tours can be booked prior to, or during your trip in Costa Rica.  However, we recommend patients make reservations as soon as possible to avoid tours that may sell out.  Just give us a call and we’ll handle everything for you.

Discount
Due to credit card processing fees and potential waiting periods to access funds,  some of our providers offer a discount (usually 5%), if patients wish to pay by cash, cashier's check, traveler's checks or wire transfer instead of paying by credit card. Ask one of our dental care associates about taking advantage of this potential savings.

Costa Rican Dental Solutions accepts all major credit cards, debit cards, payments via PayPal, as well as wire transfers to either our U.S. or Costa Rican bank accounts (any associated wire transfer fees are the responsibility of the patient).
