“I have been a practicing dentist since 1978. I found the Meza Dental Clinic to be equal and superior to the finest dental offices I have visited throughout the world. It is very comforting to be in a facility where the dentist/owner as well as the staff has a professional, warm and caring relationship with you that you feel immediately.
One is equally impressed by the efficiency reflected by the technology available in the office. The decorum lends itself to comfortability while waiting as well as when you begin to receive the service”.

“If you are thinking about traveling to Costa Rica for dental work, I am pleased to share my recent experience with Meza Dental Care and to offer my enthusiastic recommendation for Dr. Meza and his team.
My husband and I recently returned to Virginia after visiting Costa Rica for dental work, and then a wonderful vacation afterward. We had the pleasure of being well cared for by Meza Dental Care. Overall, this turned out to be a very good decision for us, as well as a positive experience. We were able to save approximately 10K on dental work from the estimate given by my dentist up here, including implants, root canals, fillings, crowns and cosmetic work needed between the two of us. Moreover, we were able to restore decades of neglect in one week, all with excellent results!”

“Our mutual friends recently e-mailed my wife and I about their trip to Costa Rica, it’s natural beauty, the charm of it’s people, etc. They further elaborated that, “the main reason for their visit was extensive dental work”. After inquiring in more detail, we learned that outside of the United States, Costa Rican dentistry is internationally respected for its professional proficiency and known to average 50% of the cost of identical dental work performed in the United States. This news was serendipitous, as I was seriously considering having major dental surgery.
Our friends recommendation: Consult with The Meza Dental Clinic in San Jose, where the Doctor and staff speak fluent english and are up to date on all of the latest techniques in dental science.”

“I am so happy I found Meza Dental via the Internet, After going to my local dentist and being quoted big money for cosmetic dentistry. I just could not afford there prices, I thought to myself that there has to be another way that I could get quality dental work for a 1/3 of the price.
I asked a friend and they recommended Costa Rica. Well I was nervous about going to another country for dental work because after all Americans have the best and anywhere else just does not compare. Boy was I wrong..”
“I have had poor teeth and gums all my life and as a consequence have had many dentists drilling and filling etc. over the years. I believe Dr. Meza is probably the finest dentist who has ever worked on my teeth. He is not only skillful and meticulous, but is a wonderful person as well who takes great care with his patients.
I had extensive work done this year and probably could not have afforded all this work here in the states. I had 18 new crowns, 2 implants, 7 root canals, 2 extractions a bone graft , 6 veneers,and x-rays. This work if done here would have taken over a year to complete- I had it done over a period of 6 months. I made 3 trips to Costa Rica during that time and the travel expenses were minimal. Hotels are very inexpensive in San Jose and a member of Dr. Meza’s staff picks you up at the airport, takes you to your appointments and returns you to your hotel and finally back to the airport for your trip home.”
“APRIL 2011. I MADE THE WISE DECISION TO HAVE DR. MEZA AT MEZA DENTAL DO THREE MOLAR IMPLANTS FOR ME. I WAS A BIT NERVOUS ABOUT THE PROCEDURE. DR. MEZA PERSONALLY CALLED FROM SAN JOSE TO MY HOME IN DENVER COLORADO.
HE VERY PATIENTLY ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS AND SOOTHED MY FEARS. REBECA WHO IS IN CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS ALSO VERY GOOD AT ASSISTING ME THROUGH THE WHOLE QUESTION AND ANSWER PROCESS.”
“I cannot say enough about the marvelous treatment that my wife and I had at the Meza Dental Clinic. Joanie had not been to a dentist for several years, but her personal care was very good with our Sonicare toothbrush and water pik.
My daily care is excellent and I get cleanings every 3 months, but it had not stopped the periodontal gum disease from wreaking havoc in my mouth. Both of us were very impressed by the in depth explanations of what was our present condition. We were shown the digital x-rays and time was spent to answer all of our questions.”

“Ho trascorso molti anni – nel mio Paese, l’Italia – con il “timore” del Dentista per differenti motivi, sia emotivi – mie paure sulla sopportazione del dolore – che economici – e’ veramente uno spropositato esborso di denaro una cura medico dentale in Italia.
Cio’ ha causato trascuratezza e negligenza nel curare la mia bocca. Un giorno, dopo qualche anno di permanenza qui in Costa Rica, un amica mi parlo’ della sua positiva esperienza con Meza Dental Care!”
Fissai un primo appuntamento………. tuttavia molto scettica ed intimorita per la mia esperienza dentistica precedente, con pessimi medici in Italia (ma erano gli unici da me abbordabili económicamente!)”

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Meza! People used to tell me, “Steve, you have the perfect face for radio…”
My name is Steve Hartman. I was a former, and still a part-time radio talk show host for KSCO AM-1080 in Santa Cruz, CA. (Their web site, www.ksco.com is searchable and you can find me there.) I’m 57 years old, single-never married, and had a yellowed crooked-teeth smile that could frighten your scarecrow. And I’ve lived that way my whole life.”

“I’ve just returned from a most amazing trip to Costa Rica to take care of what my American dentist called “very serious periodontal disease”. After talking to a relative who had been treated for the same thing and being told that it cost her $11,000, I had decided to look outside the country for an alternative. I had been told that Costa Rica had a lot of good dentists. I immediately went online and began searching for one that would take care of my needs. There are tons of dentists, it seems, who specialize in cosmetic dental work in Costa Rica, but only a few who claimed to treat periodontal disease (in addition to every other kind of dental work you can imagine).
I e-mailed a few candidates and asked them questions about my treatment. Dr. Meza called me on the phone the very same day. He and his staff patiently and promptly answered every e-mail I sent them. I did not know anyone who had been to Dr. Meza or any other dentist in that area. I wanted to be sure that I was going to be okay, traveling by myself to a foreign country and getting some pretty serious dental surgery. One other dentist gave me some great information about costs and procedures, but Dr. Meza’s office was the only one that persistently stayed in touch with me and made me feel at ease about every aspect of my trip. Finally, I made the decision to have Dr. Carlos Meza, (Dr. Alberto’s cousin) do my periodontal work.”
“I originally thought about having my dental work done offshore because of the cost of getting 2 root canals and an implant in the USA. I figured the savings would pay for a nice trip to Costa Rica for myself and family.
I did a lot of research over the web but found that nobody guaranteed anything. There were plenty of dental tourism companies that would take a cut of the price and line you up with a dentist but they were offering no guarantees or refunds if there were issues.”
“Hey Guys, you are the best!
I just want to say how pleased I am with everything, From Jose who picked me up at the airport, ( and his driving skills ). The Hotel you recommended, ( Hotel Christina ) Rebeca the go to person,she makes it work so smoothly, and of course Dr Marin who, without question is the best Dentist I have ever had, It is a pleasure to recommend you,”

“I had intended to have a cosmetic dentistry treatment for a long time. Because I live in Australia, the process began with searching the Internet for cosmetic dentists in Costa Rica, some of whom were located in the capital, San Jose, and some were located in the North of the country and were much more expensive. I sent and received many emails from a total of 17 dentists.
The main problem I experienced with this process was the confusing and sometimes conflicting information which made it very difficult to assess the various treatment options and the total cost. For example, there are various materials available for the inner core and the outer layer. Some dentists prefer zirconium inner core for strength whilst others talk about an E-max (Empress) or In-ceram inner core and outer layer.”
“Since I chose Meza Dental Clinic sight unseen, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was a staff of professionals in a clean, modern office that rivals any that I have seen in the U.S. Getting to the appointments was easy, since they provide free door to door transportation to and from your hotel.
The work was top-notch, and was done in a matter of days to accommodate my scheduled time in Costa Rica, not in weeks (or even months), of seemingly endless appointments that it would have taken in the States.”
