Dental Tourism

Meza Dental Care invites people from all over the globe to travel to Costa Rica for dental tourism. It’s the act of traveling outside of your home country to get dental care. Dental tourists may travel abroad for a variety of reasons but in most cases, those reasons are driven by cost considerations.

Meza Dental Care is able to offer much cheaper cost due to the two main reasons: rent, taxes, labor costs are lower in Costa Rica than in the U.S. or Canada; and the cost for the same exact brand of dental materials in the U.S. or Canada are lower in Latin America because their economies are smaller.

To visit the clinic as a dental tourist, you contact Meza Dental and get instructed by one of their Patient Coordinators. They may ask you for certain medical documents such as X-rays, past dental records, and pictures of your teeth. Once their doctors have reviewed your dental information, you will get a call from one of the dentists to discuss your options. After you and the dentist have agreed on the necessary treatment, the clinic will inform you about the costs, schedule your treatment plan and help you to arrange your travel. Once you arrive in Costa Rica, their driver will meet you at the airport and bring you to the clinic.
