"I have never had very sound teeth. I had tons of cavities as a kid growing up; I got my first crowns in my early twenties. I didn’t want to spend my money on one crown at a time, so I decided to do a whole mouth reconstruction. Getting the treatment I needed at home was cost prohibitive, so I began doing my research and decided that I could find a better option overseas. I have been to Costa Rica a couple of times so I know that there is a high quality of healthcare there. After a lot of research, I found Meza Dental. I was very impressed with Dr. Meza’s credentials and I had great communication with his office. The first time I made a formal inquiry, I got a call back from Doctor Meza and was able to speak with him directly. I also liked that the Google reviews for Meza Dental were very detailed and so positive. I am over the moon with how my smile looks. Now my smile on the outside matches the smile that I've always felt on the inside."
"Thank you so much for giving me the smile I have dreamed about for so long! I feel younger, beautiful and more confident than I have felt in years. I am ready to smile to life!"
"I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the Meza dental team for there highly qualified professional handling of my dental needs. t's been quite a relief to have a team of experienced pros working on me. My initial apprehension and fear of most dentist was quickly relieved by everyone´s calm and easily understood explanations in how they were going to handle my case. No language barriers here, everyone spoke perfect English. This initial calming effect extended well into my full mouth restoration. To have that much work done with little or no pain was I'm sure do to there expertise, it's what they do best. My highest regards to you and your team."
"I just had my first annual checkup with Dr. Meza since completing my full dental restoration. After having three of my four fixed bridges fail, my local dentist told me it was time to consider getting an evaluation from a dentist that would reconstruct my entire mouth. She recommended a dentist in Baltimore, Maryland. A friend of mine had spent over $60,000 and wasn't finished or satisfied yet.
I couldn't afford to go down that road, so I Googled Costa Rica Dentist and emailed Dr. Meza. He called me and I sent him the x-rays I was supposed to take with me to Baltimore. Though I have a dental plan, I had no idea of what the coverage would be for implants and cosmetic dentistry. In the past, it was always a surprise. I bought a plane ticket, while Rebeca made hotel arrangements. Jose picked me up at the airport and provided transportation for my office visits. Dr. Meza asked me what I wanted and I responded... Hollywood... fix everything. I now have an upper fixed denture mounted on implants, while, the lower jaw has seven crowns...three of which are mounted on implants along with veneers on my front teeth. Everything matches. Everyone comments, 'What a beautiful smile'.
While sitting in the waiting room, I noticed that a patient was having a dental form filled out. I requested the same and turned it in upon my return home. To my amazement, they paid 60% and 40% depending on the procedure. I hadn't expected this. This allowed me to afford the cosmetic dentistry as well. Of course the dental plan would have paid for the same items at home, but the initial cost would have been over twice as much.
Costa Rica is a beautiful country for a vacation. Everyone is friendly and I have visited almost every volcano by my rented motorcycle. Don't believe the guidebooks. You can drive safely in Costa Rica. Though I don't speak Spanish, I had no trouble with getting directions from the locals who didn't speak English. I've also been Zip Lining and I roller skate at an indoor rink near Mall, San Pedro.
While in the office I have had the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. This has been a truly remarkable experience. Who would have believed that going to the dentist could be so much fun? I can't wait for the next checkup and a hiking trip in the cloud-forest."

"My Meza Experience was one of outstanding service and treatment. Everyone at the clinic is totally committed to giving the best treatment possible. In my case the end result far exceeded my expectations. I can now speak and smile with confidence. Thanks so much to Dr. Meza and all of his staff."
"Every 6 months but there were always cavities and whatnot to be fixed. Unfortunately, due to am autoimmune disease the health of my mouth and teeth worsened. I spent endless hours and thousands of dollars at the dentist. There were fillings, root canals, posts and crowns. After having all this work done over several years some of the teeth that had been fixed started to have even more issues. I decided to see another dentist here in NH, USA for a second opinion. This new dentist which I chose after excellent referrals from friends, family and coworkers said the previous one had not placed the caps below the gum line so things were getting stuck underneath and my only option by this time was to have all my teeth pulled and replaced with implants.
I could not smile, eat, or speak without covering my mouth so I had no option but to move forward. I went to several places in both NH and Massachusetts for quotations. The lowest one was $85,000 USD. This was way more than I could afford and was losing hope fast. Then my sister mentioned her husband knew someone through work that had gone to Costa Rica for some heavy dental work and was thrilled with the results. I started my yearlong online research and the reviews and experiences I found online all lead me to choose Meza.
My husband and I took 2 trips to Costa Rica for the procedures. The second trip included lots of fun, adventure, and romantic excursions between visits to Meza dental. All of that for less than half the price. That alone is a no brainer decision but it gets even better...
Meza’s sweet, kind and funny driver Jose drove us to and from the airport to the hotel and back and forth for each of my appointments on both trips. Adriana at the front desk is beautiful inside and out and so was every single person that worked with us there from beginning to end. Dr. Meza and team are some of the kindest most considerate and understanding people I have ever met. The office is stunning and everyone there treats you like gold. I have never been treated so well at a dentist or doctor’s office here at home.
I will never be able to thank Dr. Meza and everyone who works with him enough. I haven’t stopped smiling with these stunning new teeth for 6 months. I get compliments every day on my new smile. I have strangers come up and tell me I have beautiful teeth. They feel and look so natural and I could not be happier. Even my doctor couldn’t believe it when I went for my checkup. I opened my mouth to say ahhhh as instructed and he was waving the light around in there forever saying he could hardly tell the weren’t mine.
I love Dr. Meza, his entire team, and Costa Rica. I am forever grateful for the new life I live every day thanks to what they have given me."
"I would like to leave a more personal thank you to everyone at the clinic. As I have been a patient since 2011, I have come to really enjoy coming to Costa Rica for my dental works. I enjoyed seeing Rebecca and Dr. Meza and Jose, and meeting the newer Doctors. I have to give a special thanks to Dr. Castro for such an outstanding job on this lower and to Dr. Meza for allowing me to do it affordably. I am so happy when I look in the mirror now. I just want say Thank You to everyone, Jose for transportation, Rebecca,Adriana, to all assistance, Philippe and Dr.Castro and Dr.Meza for making it all possible. You are the best!! Next time I come to Costa Rica will be for a vacation but I will definitely pay you all a visit. Great job everyone!"
"I have just returned from visiting Dr. Alberto Meza at his Meza Dental office location in San Jose, Costa Rica where I have received root canal, implant, bone graft, veneer, crown, and composite filing treatments.
Personally I am extremely impressed with the results and the entire experience. The savings were extreme enough to motivate me to travel from Miami, Florida USA to San Jose Costa Rica. And let me say that I am glad that I did!
Dr. Alberto Meza has a fully staffed modern state of the art facility located within an upscale professional office building. I found the that the views from his dental chairs overlooking the Parque Zoologico and Jardin Botanico were very relaxing as well. I also found that the entire staff to be very well educated and highly professional, many of them from U.S. dental schools as well as hold advanced specialty training such as cosmetic dentistry."
