Why choose Costa Rica for Dental Tourism?
Costa Rica is one of the top countries North Americans choose for major dental work because of its excellent reputation for high-quality dental restorations, excellent economic advantages offering great value, and the opportunity to take a fabulous vacation in a tropical paradise within close proximity to the USA.
Costa Rica is known globally for its nature, biodiversity, flora and fauna, world-class beaches, scenic Volcanic and mountain regions, and of course for Ecotourism.
These are some of the main reasons people choose Costa Rica for their dental work:
FAST AND DIRECT FLIGHTS
Most of the main cities in the US have direct flights to Costa Rica. The flight takes from 3-5 hours top, and they’re affordable. For example, a flight from Miami to San José usually costs less than $400 roundtrip, and you can arrive in 3 hours to the country.
LOW COST DENTISTRY
In Costa Rica you can save 50-70% on your dental work. The rates of medical and dental treatments are regulated, so there’s a recommended rate for every treatment, and it represents the minimum they can charge.
Costa Rica is a very safe, enjoyable, and tranquil country, with low crime rates, no military since 1948, socialized healthcare, and a 99% literacy rate.
Dentists in Costa Rica are highly trained (for the most part in the US). They have a team of qualified professionals and use the latest dental technology, diagnostic tools, and imaging.
