Costa Rica dental tourism is simply a subset of the more general and common term "medical tourism" which is typically defined as traveling to another country or location for the purpose of obtaining medical or dental care.  You may have come across similar terms including medical or dental travel, dental tourism, health travel, health or dental vacations, etc.

Although this is a relatively new concept to most North Americans, it has been practiced by Europeans and Asians for decades as they traveled abroad to seek solutions to their medical needs.

Today, most people seek medical tourism in Costa Rica for reasons of accessing safe, high quality care at significant savings. Due to the rising cost and uncertainty of healthcare in the U.S. combined with inadequate or non-existent dental insurance, patients are taking advantage of highly trained doctors, dentists, cutting edge technology and quality care outside their own country.

With regard to Costa Rica dental tourism, patients of Costa Rican Dental Solutions routinely save 50-70% on dental procedures when utilizing our services and can expect results that meet and exceed standards of dental care in the U.S. and Canada. The low price does not mean you will be sacrificing any quality of care or materials used in your dental procedure. The lower cost of living, lower labor and overhead costs, a less paper-burdened bureaucracy as well as our established relationships in the country translate to significant savings for the dental traveler.

You may have uncertainty in trusting health care in another country. Costa Rican Dental Solutions understand these concerns and takes your care very seriusly.  Before any patient utilized our services, we took several years to understand all aspects of dentistry in Costa Rica and more importantly, pre-screen, rigorously evaluate and identify the best dental care providers.

We trust our own care to the dentists of Costa Rican Dental Solutions and we hope to alleviate any fear, anxiety or uncertainty you may have when considering dental care in this country. Your safety and satisfaction is our priority.
