Dr. Alberto Meza is the Founder and Director of the well known Meza Dental Clinic, and a one of the pioneers in the Dental Tourism industry in Costa Rica. He led the field in Costa Rica in providing upscale high-end cosmetic dental solutions to Americans, Canadians and other dental tourists who fly in from all over the world. But he’s not only a top class professional he’s also a fantastic father and husband. In this article, we’ll talk about his expertise in Cosmetic Dentistry, share some of his personal story and how he achieved the recognition as one of Latin America’s most recommended dentists
His family emigrated from europe, and he is now the 5th generation of Meza dentists. He started studying english in Pittsburgh as an exchange student. When Alberto came back to Costa Rica, his hometown, he started studying dentistry at the University of Costa Rica.
Passionate about his career he decided to take a step further and take his skills to a whole new level. He decided to attend UCLA, which is ranked in the top-20 best universities of the United States. The Postgraduate Training Programs at the UCLA School of Dentistry are designed for graduates of dental schools looking to enhance their dental education and pursue advanced training in general dentistry or to specialize in a particular area of dentistry.
After having completed his postgraduate training, he had an idea that would forever change his career path. If Costa Rica is such an amazing place full of nature and beauty, he thought, why not bring patients from abroad? Thus, he oriented his professional practice to cater to foreign patients and became the founding father of medical tourism in Costa Rica.
At Meza Dental Care, he started training a select group of dentists in order to provide world-class service and deliver outstanding and consistent results to North American and European patients alike. Meza Dental Care and Dr. Meza have since gained over 20 years of experience in dental tourism and has forged a solid reputation for professionalism and excellence.
However, Dr. Meza realized that excellence isn’t a destination, but something you must continually pursue. In 2005, Dr. Meza set out to join the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and become AACD accredited. Not all were convinced he could reach this goal, but Alberto was determined and in 2015 he successfully achieved the highly sought after accreditation. This was a particularly high-bar considering he was only the 2nd Dentist in all of Latin American to achieve this prestigious accreditation at that point in time.
The AACD accreditation demonstrates a very high level of clinical skill and ability in Cosmetic Dentistry, and is a distinction that very few dentists will ever achieve. In fact, he was only the 2nd person south of the U.S. border who can claim AACD accreditation.
Patients who are unable to afford dental treatment by an AACD Accredited Dentist in the United States or Canada now have a trustworthy alternative to be treated by the best cosmetic dentists in Costa Rica.
Meza Dental Care’s lengthy track record makes it the best alternatives for those who require dental implants, cosmetic dentistry or a full mouth restoration. Meza offers safe affordable dental care, providing world class treatment at accessible prices. If you are considering traveling abroad for dental treatment, contact Meza Dental.
