Why Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a peaceful small country in Central America, known throughout the world for its high quality, low cost dental care. Politically stable, and with no army...


"I was living in Portland, OR and needed several crowns and other procedures. My ODS Plan P+ dental insurance (one of the best at that time) covered just part of the treatment and the annual maximum covered was $2000."

What is a specialist?

According to Costa Rican Law, a specialist is a dentist who after the regular six years of Dentistry school completes at least two more additional years of studies and training (full time) in a specific branch of dentistry. This has to be certified by the official Costa Rican Board of Dentists, which reviews the program and the University that offered the specialty (some programs may not be accepted as a specialty if they do not reach a specified degree of excellence).

The Costa Rican Board of Dentists, in article 29 of their Code of Ethics, prohibits dentists from claiming to be a specialist if they do not fulfill the above mentioned requirements.

There are only three certified Oral Implant Specialists in Costa Rica, and Anglada & Castro offers one of them.
