Great experience from the time I was picked up from SJO till my last visit three weeks later. Being... that I was from out of country (Texas) they made me a top priority. I had done 29 zirconium dental crowns. I have to say it was a much more intensive process than I had first envisioned, but Dr.Garita and Dr. Barrantes, along with all of their staff were wonderful at getting me thru it! ConfiDental was a very clean and modern facility in every regard.The receptionist, Erica was very pleasant and made sure that all my needs were met while I was in country from arranging the initial hotel reservation, to any insight I had while in Costa Rica. Thanks for everything. PuraVidaread more

I can’t say enough about Dr. Garita. He took the time to explain everything clearly. I had all my... teeth replaced with zirconia: a horrifying procedure under the best of circumstances. Dr. Garita and his excellent staff went above and beyond to make the experience as comfortable and untraumatic as humanly possible. I’m convinced that I got the best treatment available, period. I now have no pain & a dazzling Clooney-level smile. If you’re considering Confidental for any reason, don’t hesitate.read more

After looking at many dental offices, getting my Porcelain Veneers done with ConfiDental has been... by far the best investment I've made for my dental health. Since I first reached out the journey was professional and very warm. Dr.Garita was a very important guide and the results were way better than I expected. I can smile confidently again. Dr.Garita is definitely the leader in aesthetic restorative treatments in Costa Rica.read more
