I am not an easy patient
All my life I had fear of dentists, and unfortunately, because I had periodontal problems, I had to deal with them quite often. I had a few good experiences but too many bad experiences, you cannot even begin to imagine how bad!!! It's a fair statement to say that I am not an easy patient to say the least.
About 14 years ago, I had to have major work done on my upper teeth. At the time they did not have the technology available today, and a perfect fit partial had to be used in the back. Over the years I had more gums receding and tooth decays, and the all job had to be redone. I went to several dentists in the USA and was quoted between $27000 and $32000. That, of course, did not include, Xrays, root canals, extractions, and whatever additional treatment would be needed. I considered going to Costa Rica and was referred to Dr Mario Garita, who is specialized in cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and reconstruction. He is located very close to CIMA, which is very convenient. He studied in the USA, and he and his staff, all speak fluent English. They were all very understanding of my fears, and did they best to make it pain free, and make me feel very comfortable. They all have excellent bed manners.
The 'Expensive' was only a fraction of the price I was quoted in the US.
As opposed to what I was told in the US, Dr Garita gave me a few options, from the least expensive to the most expensive. I ended up choosing the most expensive, because it was only a fraction of the price I was quoted in the US. The work was done with only three visits; the whole process lasted only 3 months, instead of 6 months in the US. That's included, extractions, roots canals, 4 implants, periodontal evaluation, deep cleaning, temporary teeth... etc. Furthermore, Dr Garita has his own lab on site, and that is extremely convenient for people coming from another country, or when there is a last minute change of plan, like in my case. To give me a longer break, I had originally wanted to wait 3 weeks between my second and third visit (instead of the one week required), but I had something coming up and I needed to leave 2 weeks sooner. With just 5 days notice, Dr Garita and his staff managed to deliver the final job within the time frame I gave them.

The final job is beautiful, looks very natural; I enjoyed very much not having any partials and cannot stop smiling. My husband is now a patient of Dr Garita as well.
The front desk is also extremely helpful. Anna took excellent care of me. She also has very good suggestions about hotels where we could stay during the treatment. Most of those hotels give very good rates to Dr Garita's patients. I stayed at Costa Verde and was very pleased.
I recommend Mario Garita to anyone needing some good dental care. You may call him from the USA, or from Costa Rica. His number is (305) 517-5172 when dialing from the US, or (506) 2288-7472.
