Good Dentist Experience

Post Posted: Tue Sep 06, 2016 11:52 pm

Hi everyone! A bit new to the forum here, but I figured the best way to start is with a positive message Very Happy

I know so many members of the expat community here in Costa Rica that have had such bad experience with dentists that I feel obliged to share when there's a good experience.
A couple months ago one of my teeth broke off a piece and I was recommended this dentist in Rohrmoser. Had to admit I was kind of worried at the beginning because I've just heard so many horror stories. But this dentist has been absolutely amazing! So good that I even had my mom, stepdad, dad, stepmom, grandfather and two sisters visit me down here to come get their teeth done! She also took care of my tico step daughter (which I added a cute picture of!) and was super super nice, playing with her and giving her a blankie.

She was very professional, you can tell she's a neat freak and worried about everything being sterile which is one of the things I was worried about. She speaks relative good English but has an assistant that is from an American family that speaks fluently. The place is really nice because it has this spa like atmosphere, like there's always relaxing music and lights and you get served coffee or tea when you arrive. It's the little details that count sometimes! But the absolute best part is that she worked with my MetLife insurance and said that she worked with all insurance types, so that was a big plus for me and my family.
Anyway, for anyone needing a dentist I 100% recommend this one. Her name is Evelyn and the clinic is called Total Dental Care. I think they have a facebook page as well you can check out. I have their email and phone number if anyone needs it, just ask and I'll post it in.

Hope everyone has a nice week Mr. Green

Hi there, It sounds good because most of the dentist used to take money, but they don't provide a good treatment and thanks for sharing this because my sister had a severe tooth pain and she visited to most of the dentist, but it doesn't work and finally her friend recommended Caldentalgroup and they provided good treatment which she needed at that time and also gave her good guidance about healthy teeth.
