I am from Florida “senior citizen who needed major dental work”. After receiving several local quotes and talking with friends who have had such work done out of the country in Costa Rica did some significant web research and were astounded by the huge savings and extremely professional and high quality care that is available in that country. Because of that research I focused on Dr. Donato and his collaborators at Americas Dental Care in San Jose. They are a team to specifically provide dental care to people such as me. I had many questions and they unfailingly provided prompt and comprehensive answers (typically via email, but phone is also an option).
My decision was an easy one and I chose late August of this year for our “dental vacation” with them. It is not an exaggeration to say that I have been delighted with the entire experience. The personal care and attention, knowledge levels, and professionalism accompanying their work and the results they achieved have far exceeded all expectations. I do not hesitate to strongly recommend Americas Dental Care.
We are Florida senior citizens who needed major dental work. After checking prices and doing research, we decided to go to Costa Rica. After contacting a few recommended dentists, we found Dr. Juan Donato at Americas Dental Care. They work as a team to provide excellent individual service—no big clinic, a Maxillofacial Surgeon and Dental Implantologist and his collaborators. Every question was answered promptly and in detail. Their professionalism and the results exceeded our expectations. The quality is better and the cost is a fraction of the US price.
For me an hour in the dentist chair is too long, much less each day for a week. But my experience with Dr. Donato was amazing. I had extensive reconstructive work done that would have taken weeks and weeks to complete in the states, not to mention tens of thousands of dollars. These fine people got me all set up with transportation, hotel accommodations and even tourist adventures during my free time. With the money I saved I can afford another vacation!
I have a great experience with you guys. You work as a sensational team, they complement each other in every way. If you’re looking for fanatical, they just don’t go 100%, they go 1000%, I am so impressed the way they work on me, they don’t left rocks on term. Thanks for the great experience, as closer than a Doctor/Patient relationship. Don’t doubt on contacting me for any referral, Americas Dental Care, they are awesome!
I never thought I’d say that I love my dentist, but I do! Dr. Donato was referred to me by another Costa Rican dentist. My husband and I had visited Costa Rica several years back and he cracked a tooth during he visit. We liked that dentist so much that we returned to Costa Rica, just to have some work done. But when we needed some extensive work performed, implants and bone graphing, our original dentist, who lives in a remote village, referred us to Dr. Juan Donato. Dr. Donato and his wife, Anita, welcomed us as though we were family. They treated us with great care and performed everything we asked for in a professional and timely manner. When my husband’s implant did not go according to plan, Dr. Donato was quick to help him through the process. As implants can fail from time to time, my husband was grateful that we had stayed a few extra days after all the work was performed. We were able to extend our vacation, and Dr. Donato took great care of him.
I will happily return to Dr. Donato for any dental needs I have, as will my husband. We love Costa Rica and Dr. Donato and his wife make it extra special.
My daughter convinced me to visit Dr. Donato this past year when I needed some major dental work performed. I live on a fixed budget and the prices that the American dentists were giving me were way out of line with what I could afford. I was hesitant at first, but with my daughter making the trip with me, I was quickly convinced that saving money was more important than worrying about flying out of country. We met at the airport since we were flying from two different cities. And the entire trip was wonderful. Dr. Donato started working on my mouth that afternoon. Over the weekend, while my mouth was having some time to relax, we took a trip to the beach, went zip-lining and dolphin watching. It was a divinely beautiful weekend!
After returning to Dr. Donato’s office to finish the work, everything went so smoothly, I almost couldn’t believe it. We were finished in no time. I was sad to return home. Dr. Donato and his wife are a great team. I appreciated their thoroughness, their willingness to describe every process in detail and going above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. I can’t recommend them enough
I have never liked going to the dentist but after meeting Dr. Juan and his lovely Anita my smile has never been so beautiful. Dr. Juan and his team have worked wonders on my smile, my teeth have never looked so great, he is gentle and precise. I am so thankful! I will never go to another dentist as long as he has me for a patient. He has been not only a great dentist but now a great friend. Another perk about coming here for dental work is getting to explore this beautiful country Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful. Thank You Dr. Juan I can't possibly say how grateful I am.
