We had a wonderful experience at Goodness Dental. I felt that Dr. Melissa was very competent and caring. Also, Dr. Rosa is so nice and warm and did a great job. Dr. Madrigal did an excellent job with my root canals. My husband was very happy with Dr. Jorge.
The staff was outstanding, organizing our rides and supporting us. I am so glad I finally got my teeth taken care of.
I would not hesitate to send any of my family members or friends to Goodness Dental.
Thank you!!

My husband just completed Phase II of III of total dental reconstruction at Goodness Dental. We could not be more pleased with the results so far and anticipate total perfection upon completion in October. The facilities are new and sparkling clean. The dentists and staff are superb and each with excellent credentials. Their warm, thoughtful, and kind personalities make it a pleasure to be in their company. Treat yourself to the very best dental experience possible. You cannot go wrong going to Goodness Dental in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Thank you Goodness Dental for making a complicated situation simple. There is always a solution to a problem and my team created that solution. Dr. Andreas’ patience was kind and never ending (even after biting him, on accident of course!) Dr. Karen was always present and full of honesty, thank you for working with me. I look forward to coming back to finish the masterpiece. Gracias!

This place was by far the most caring and considerate place we could have ever been. My husband had major work to be done and we received excellent professional care. From the first contact with Peter Aborn to the airport, hotel, clinics and hospital, every staff member made my husband feel as if he was the number one priority of the day. They use all the finest technology and the work is first rate! We can’t say enough about Sue, Karen, Fernanda, Andres and the entire team Patrick Goodness has put together to insure such wonderful care. Everyone of these people called at one time or another to check on my husband. You don’t get care like this in the states! The hotel that they have medical discount with made us feel like family and they were here to take care of us during my husbands healing time, and they did.

Very welcoming, the staff here are very professional and very welcoming. Their command of the English language is very good. Important to me because my Spanish is muy mal! Prices on crowns about one third of Boston, Massachusetts. Pricing and quality is better. The price I paid for the crowns allowed me to have a vacation including flight for free. Highly recommend. They also picked me up from the airport and my hotel for no extra charge. Karen also did some work on my teeth and is also the best!

My mouth was a MESS!! Decay everywhere. I flew to Goodness Dental in Costa Rica for implants and crowns because in the USA you will pay as much as 70% more!! The quality is incomparable. Goodness Dental is a team of dentists, prosthodontists, endodontists and an oral surgeon that work together like a fine tuned Bentley engine… I LOVE Goodness Dental. My smile is so BEAUTIFUL now. I look like a TRILLION dollars. I feel so BLESSED to have found Goodness Dental. If you don’t come to Goodness Dental in Costa Rica you should never smile next to me …you will be so jealous…GOODNESS DENTAL works together out of the GOODNESS of their hearts…..

The “TEAM” at Goodness Dental is actually a “Team”. They look after you from start to finish.
I came for one implant and will be back for others because they do FANTASTIC work.

I talked to other dentists at home and they could not touch the work nor the pricing of
GOODNESS Dental.
You need to come to Escazu, Costa Rica and experience perfection!

Very good experience. All the doctors and staff were very pleasant, professional and helpful. Great communication. They didn’t suggest work for you that wasn’t needed. Clean facility in a great area. Price is unbeatable. I will be back in September for my implants. I recommend ANYONE to come to Goodness Dental to have dental work.

Goodness Dental formulated a plan to restore my missing teeth. They quoted a price. Did the work and i could not be happier with the results. Karen Yurell was very clear about each step and made sure I understood what was going to occur.
Everyone involved in my care very impressive, professionals. I would recommend Goodness to everyone.
I can’t wait to see my friends in the clinic in just few months!!

Come here if you need all kinds of dental work done! We put off having dental work because we couldn’t afford the prices in U.S.

My husband and I had multiple procedures (including crowns and implants) and the team of dentists and support staff is the BEST!

Everyone is professional, friendly, and really walks you through every stage of treatment.

Goodness Dental helped us with everything from hotel arrangements to transportation (including airport transfers and all appointments-they make it so easy!!).

Escazu, the area where the office is located, is fun to walk around with lots of great eating places and shops.

I was never a big fan of going to the dentist, but I’m a big fan of Goodness Dental!

This is my eighth day at the good ol’ dentist in Costa Rica and I’ve had an amazing experience. I’m so thrilled with what I’ve had done so far. I have to come back in six months, but everything was awesome! Dr. Andrés – I’m in love with him…he’s amazing! Karen, Sue, they were all just so amazing. I can’t wait to come back.

My experience at Goodness Dental has been, exceptional in every way. Communicating with Sue over email made the entire experience easy, efficient and pleasant. Peter Aborn called me and talked with me for nearly an hour about my teeth. That’s never happened to me in the U.S.A.. Once I arrived, I was impressed with the facility, the technology and most importantly, the staff. They are kind, intelligent, meticulous professionals and almost all of them speak perfect English. I had to bring my 3 year old daughter to two appointmenst and the staff played with her and kept her entertained while I had my teeth. worked. on. The staff listened to my thoughts and requests about the procedures which I really appreciated because I feel like my dentist in the U.S. doesn’t listen or even ask me what I want. The prices were astonishingly low compared to what I was quoted by my regular dentist and the final results exceeded my expectations. I’m already recommending Goodness Dental to my friends and family and other travelers that I’ve met here while vacationing in Costa Rica in between appointments. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to get my dental work done here!

I like it here at Goodness Dental. They were great to help out in every way, they even sent a driver for me every time I needed one.
The surgeon was an absolute expert he got my surgery done in about 2 hours and 45 minutes. I felt better immediately after the surgery, I had a lot of infection in my teeth.

After they installed my temporary teeth, they kept working with me until they got the teeth to function correctly.
I recommend for people to come here from the United States or anywhere else; to have their dental work done. You are definitely in good hands at Goodness Dental in Costa Rica. See you in a few months, my new friends in Costa Rica!

Everyone is so nice. You couldn’t find nicer people. They will all help you with any question you have. They are all specialist and speak very good English.
I am a rarity because my first implants failed. When we came back for the second phase they were very good in that they did the best to make it right with no additional charge. Now I will come back in 6 months and do the second phase. I am well pleased.
