If the mere thought of a dentist makes your teeth ache, you are not alone. Some experts estimate that as many as four in every five adults fear dental treatment to some degree, and only 20 percent of us see the dentist twice a year as we know we should. Yet there’s reason beyond white teeth and a glistening smile to keep up with your dental care.
Medical travelers who seek dental care outside their national borders have a single thought in mind: money. In the US, UK, and many European countries, dental care is expensive, especially if extensive reconstructive or cosmetic work is required. In the US, only the most rudimentary dental care is covered by health insurance plans, which is why more than 150 million Americans are without dental coverage.
No longer a sleepy destination for cost-conscious American expats seeking dental care, Costa Rica’s two JCI-accredited hospitals and numerous smaller, private AAAASF- and AAAHC-accredited clinics offer a wide range of medical services, including orthopedics, cardiology, cancer treatments, cosmetic surgery, and bariatrics. Idyllic scenery and unique “recovery lodges” make Costa Rica a prime destination for the medical traveler.
With its comparative wealth as a Central American nation, emphasis on ecotourism, and long history of relative political tranquility, Costa Rica, Spanish for “rich coast,” can hardly be labeled a third-world country. Few tourist destinations offer such easy access to leisure activities.
Breathtaking national parks of volcanoes and cloud forests are less than an hour’s drive from the capital, San Jose; and both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts are easily accessible, with plenty of local and westernized accommodations. With so many Americans vacationing in, traveling to, or buying real estate in Costa Rica, many “Ticans” wonder if their country won’t soon become the US’s fifty-first state.
