Why choose Costa Rica?

Is Dental Work Safe in Costa Rica?

Promed states ” Many dental clinics in Costa Rica that cater to international patients are accredited by American-based accreditation organizations such as the Joint Commission International (JCI), the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care International (AAAHCI) or the American Association for Accreditation for Ambulatory Surgery Facilities International (AAAASFI). “

Still, we suggest, you should do thorough research about the clinic and the treating dentist.

  • Find out the qualifications of the dentist. The dentist could be Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) and may have done specialization in any field or a Fellowship program.
  • They should be accredited with Colegio de Dentistas Cirujanos and licensed by the Ministry of Health.
  • A bilingual dentist is recommended. If that is not possible, always ask for an interpreter.
  • Check if the clinic has an in-house dental lab. In-house labs quicken the prosthesis turnover and maintain higher quality standards. The dentist is able to give inputs immediately.
  • Sterilization is of extreme importance. The dental clinic must meet the set international standards.
