Going to the dentist is usually not an experience we look forward to, but it is something we all need to do if we want a healthy smile and overall good health. It is recommended for a person to visit a dentist at least twice a year to prevent any severe problems, however, many times, not only do we not look forward to it but we avoid it because of the high costs it represents, especially when it comes to complex treatments which are usually not covered by insurance plans.
Treatments such as dental implants, crowns or full mouth reconstructions are extremely expensive in countries like the United States and Canada, which is why, dental tourism has gained popularity as an alternative to receiving the treatment you need with high levels of quality for a fraction of the what it would cost in North America.
In Latin America, countries like Mexico, Colombia and Costa Rica have become the most common destinations for dental tourism, however, because of the growing insecurity and violence in Mexico and Colombia, Costa Rica certainly presents a much more attractive offer.
Traveling to Costa Rica to get dental work done can save patients anywhere from 40% to 75% off US prices, money that can be invested on a fun vacation in this beautiful country.

Costa Rica is recognized as having some of the best healthcare in Latin America, college education is of very high level and the professionals take it upon themselves to constantly stay up to date, many of them have studied abroad throughout North America to specialize in different fields.
Another advantage is that clinics such as the Flikier Dental Institute have made important investments in their facilities and equipment to offer a high-class service, with the latest technology and highest quality materials, offering a great experience to the patients while still remaining affordable.
“Patients come to Costa Rica because clinics like the Flikier Dental Institute offer them the same level of quality as any high-level clinic in the United States or Canada, while they also have significant savings specially when it comes to complex treatments. We pride ourselves in offering top level services with state-of-the-art technology to guarantee a patient’s comfort and satisfaction”, commented Dr. Simon Flikier.
