Get a Beautiful New Smile in Costa Rica with Goodness Dental Group.
My wife received a price in Florida for necessary dental work that needed to be done to fix her serious dental issues. They quoted us $18,000.00 for a bridge, fillings and other issues. We contacted Goodness Dental, and supplied them with panoramic images and previous dental records. My wife discussed the entire process with Dr. Peter Aborn, who was able to assemble a plan of care at a fraction of the cost in the USA. In addition, due to time restraints, Patrick Goodness and his team were able to get the custom implants for the bridge back from the lab in time for us to complete the procedure and make or trip back home. I found out about 2 months before our trip that I too needed some dental work (Crown, Root Canal and Extraction). I was able to prolong the work until I could make it to Costa Rica with my wife, and the price charged was also a fraction of the price quoted in the USA. Because I have businesses, it was necessary for me to work while on this trip. Patrick saw that I needed a spot, and allowed me to use an empty office to take care of my work. He went above and beyond what any business needs to do to be successful. They had us picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel to make this the best possible experience possible. The facility is a newly constructed building with first class equipment. I have nothing but praise for the owner, dentists, surgeons, receptionists and the entire staff of great people that make up Goodness Dental. I encourage any interested patients to contact me if you are considering Goodness Dental. This is one of the better decisions that I've ever made.
I researched several clinics and Goodness Dental kept coming out on top. The information sent by Dr. Aborn helped alot. Dr. Karen was very helpful and friendly! We could not have navigated to all the appointments and picked up our meds without her! We also laughed allot with her! We arrived on Mother's Day in Costa Rica, and they got us settled at our hotel and brought us to the office for our exams, even though it was a national holiday. The patient coordinators were here with us and finished the exams, getting us ready for work to begin the next day. it was a long day for everyone, but they were all so positive and helpful. The next few days were busy for us all, but because of their great organization, everything went very well. Everything was so positive. All of our questions were answered as they came up and we never felt like they were trying to rush anything. I was sedated for my extractions and implants. The surgeon and anesthesiologist totally put me at ease and took time with me afterwards to make sure of my comfort as I woke up. They were at my side and very caring through the whole thing. Our dentists at Goodness Dental spent much more time with us than our doctors at home. Each doctor answered every question and concern. Going to the dentist is not a "fun" experience, but I believe they made it come pretty close.
The treatment and care was outstanding. The treatment, surgery, implants and temporaries, was professionally performed. Dr. Julian Sesin, who performed the surgery was great. He was extremely competent and most considerate of my condition throughout the procedure. Dr. Daniel Alfaro took impression and installed the temporaries. Both doctors went out of their way to do the follow up adapting to my travel schedule. I cannot say enough about these men; they are highly skilled and demonstrated great compassion throughout the entire experience. Dr. Karen Yurell who coordinated the work was a pleasure to work with. She has a wonderful personality and her positive attitude contributed to the success of the procedure. The process has been a total success and I highly recommend Goodness Dental for implant surgery.
