Dr. José Garita’s state-of-the-art dental office is a beautiful place where all the surgery takes place.

All staff members are part of a well-organized professional team. Everything is so clean and sanitary. (It’s certainly cleaner than my dentist’s clinic in the USA!)

Beautiful fresh Costa Rican flowers give this office lots of positive energy.

The technicians are ready to start!

I’m ready too! I take a light tranquilizer tablet, sit back and relax…

…knowing I am in the best of professional hands.

Since 2012, I have made this trip to Dr. José Gavita’s dental clinic 3 times replacing old dental work done by other dentists over my lifetime.

I am thrilled that Dr. Garita’s lab will have my permanent porcelain veneers ready for my front upper teeth tomorrow. And it all happens in less than 4 days!

ConfiDental has changed my life. The staff, dentists and Dr. Garita were the most professional and caring people. I will return in the future and plan on having them be the only dentist I will ever use. Never in my life have I ever such a great experience going to the dentist.

No pain, no problems, all smiles.
Thanks to them! They are the best.

Gene M. Gilligan: February 2017

After a long battle with teeth problems and high cost in the states I decided to look outside the US to get all my teeth replaced with all on 4 dental implants. Upon consulting with Dr. José Garita I decided  to do a full mouth restoration. I couldn’t be happier.  The friendly and helpful staff made it a breeze.

Lance Jordan: April 2017

Excellent work. Excellent doctor!

John Kendall: June 2017

So happy to finally, after a lifetime of of comprimized teeth, to have a full set of strong, comfortable ones. The year long processe has been an interesting experance after years of researching dental medicine in Costa Rica. I am so glad I picked ConfiDental. Dr. Garita and his team have done their utmost to keep me informed and comfortable. I have been recommending ConfiDental to friends and family at home in Canada. Haawa is a Haida word from Haida Gwaii meaning thank you with gratitude.

William Woodworth: November, 2017

My experience with ConfiDental was fantastic.  I’m not a doctor or a medical professional, but I can tell the difference between lip service and attention to detail.  In the US, almost all of my medical and dental experiences are rushed.  There is a steady pressure to do things quickly and move on to the next patient.  At ConfiDental, it was the exact opposite.

I can offer two examples.  First, when I was being prepared, the team took extra time and care to dry my mouth.  At the time, it seemed just uncomfortable.  Then I realized why.  By drying the surfaces, the lidocaine they used to numb the site was more precise.  In the US, less care is taken; and I end up tasting the lidocaine that seeps away from the swabs.  The extra attention to detail ensured that I was numb where I needed to be – and nowhere else.  This attention to detail extended to the next step of pain management, in which novocaine was injected.  Dr. Marcal took much longer than the US dentists and periodontists have.  This extra time was spent really studying my jaw and making the injections more slowly and carefully.  Afterward, he allowed plenty of time for it to take affect.  The result is that I was numb where I needed to be, but not over the rest of my face.

The second is in the suturing at the end of my visit.  The team took a long time with the sutures.  They moved slowly and deliberately.  In prior work, in the US, the knots of the sutures were generally on the surface where food could get into them, and the ends of the sutures tended to irritate my tongue.  The ConfiDental team tied the sutures so that the knots were between my jaw and cheek.  This is a harder place to put the knots, but is makes so much more sense!  There is less room over there, but the results were far more convenient for me.

I don’t have a lot of experience with dental technologies, but I do know that attention to detail makes all the difference in health care.  In the only two areas I could judge, pain management and suturing, the ConfiDental team took more time and paid more attention to detail than I have ever seen in any other health care context.  I look forward to returning to Costa Rica the next time I need dental work.

William Glover: August 2017

I had a crown made, three cavities filled, a bite plate, and my teeth cleaned.The work was exceptional and the pain was minimal, compared to previous experiences.

Michael Hirsch: September 2017

I had the best dental experience of my life from March 13-26, and Dr. Garita probably saved my life with the dental work. Maybe they should rename the city, San Jose Garita!

It is strange that we have to leave Florida and fly to Costa Rica for affordable dental care, but it is wonderful to have world-class care…better than my past dental experiences in the USA. We are happy to do it, with the ConfiDental team of Amalia, Kimberly, Marcella, Flora, Maybell, and Dr Garita…I hope I did not forget anybody. You folks are great. I have told many people about it. My wife and I are very lucky. Thanks very much.

Tom Matheson: March 2017

It is hard to express in words how wonderful Dr Garita and his team at ConfiDental have been to me! They have been available for every question I had in planning my two trips to Costa Rica and helped me with lodging and transportation. They always treated me with gentle kindness and respect. One evening after some additional dental work was needed the entire team stayed and worked until 9:15 pm and yet were still patiently attentive and smiling! I feel like I am leaving part of my family here in Costa Rica as I return home! I would recommend this team to anyone needing dental work large or small!

Karen Foster: November, 2017

I am a new patient from Denver Colorado. Our friend, Mauricio Jimenez referred my husband and myself to ConfiDental. I am very pleased with the care and treatment I received. I personally want to thank Dr. Marcela Jimenez, DDS, for her gentle and caring team for everything. I am looking forward to returning to Costa Rica in about 12 months, and I have complete confidence that I will receive excellent treatment and results.

Christine LaPorte: December, 2017

Very pleased with the personnel care they provide, the entire staff is very attentive.

Herman Brown: April 2017

I highly recommend the staff at ConfiDental. They are professional and skilled at what they do while making you feel welcome and at ease.Thank you. ConfiDental, for my new smile!

Marcella Stull: April 2017

I had a wonderful experience. The price was the same as I was quoted and the doctors were awesome. Dr. Garita is amazing and is gentle tone put me at ease. I had an All-on-4 procedure on my lower jaw and was amazed at how little pain I experienced.

Ursala Bardney

I can’t say that surgery is fun, but I believe my dental surgery was about as good as it could be! I liked how Dr. Garita explained everything to me in a way I could understand. This dental experience was much better than any I have ever had. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing dental implants.

Dale Solmonson

I came to Costa Rica for a lot of dental work. After x-rays and an exam, the doctor spent a lot of time making sure I understood what was going to happen. After each procedure, the doctor would have follow-up inspection to make sure everything was as it should be.</p> <p>The personal attention from the doctor and staff, and all the help they gave us with transportation made our trip so easy – especially not speaking Spanish.</p> <p>Looking forward to coming back in a few months to complete the procedure!

Harold Rilling: July 2017

Excellent care, Professional staff. Very friendly. They cared for me after I was “out of it” from the procedure. For example, they called a taxi, got me into it directed the driver, THEN checked to be sure I got back to my hotel safely.

Matthew Kinnear: April 2017

Nothing but first rate. The whole staff went out of their way to make me glad I took the risk of doing something some told me was crazy. The work was as good, if not better than any I have had done. The location is very convenient to hotels and restaurants and across the street from a peaceful park. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Patrick Ryan: May 2017

Dr. Garita and his staff were right up to date with the latest in equipment and attitude. Dr.Garita is very thorough and patient. I was very impressed. I think I finally found my forever Dentist! My experience was very good and I felt the dentist was very honest and informative.

Carmen Elwin: September 2016

If you’ve been thinking of going to Costa Rica to have some dental work don’t think any longer, book that flight. I just got back from Costa Rica and Dr. Jose V. Garita and his wonderful staff took good care of me. In 10 days I had 8, yes, (eight) crowns and 2 (two) veneers. You can’t even tell they aren’t my own teeth. I believe they would not have been this natural looking if I done them in the US. I’m already planning another trip to have my old fillings removed and replaced. As for the price, UNBELIEVABLE compared to the US.

Shaun Wickings: September 2016

It seems a little strange to count memories of my time in oral surgery among the many pleasant ones I have of a week spent in Costa Rica. The time I spent in your offices was made very pleasant by the people of ConfiDental. Besides the very generous office wide effort to assist my learning Spanish, every person on your team was helpful, considerate, and unfailingly kind to both my daughter and me. I am so grateful to have met all of you, and I look forward to seeing you again in June. I also look forward to being much more fluent in Spanish at that time!

Daniel Thompson: December 2016

I loved all the people I met at ConfiDental. They were all kind and made sure I was well taken care of. I even took cards home with me to pass out to family and friends so they could receive the best dental care!

Kathy Stephenson: October 2016

I want to thank you for the work you performed for me. The results were outstanding, the Crowns fit very well and the fillings look very good. The time you spent adjusting my bite has it better than it had been for 20 years. Your staff was very helpful and your English was flawless. Your expertise with anesthesia and pain control made the whole procedure very painless. I was able to enjoy visiting San Jose and the natural sites in the vicinity every day.

James E. Harrison: October 2016

I received a doctor’s referral to come to ConfiDental. Dr. Garita’s care was excellent and I felt like I was part of a loving family while at ConfiDental. Thank you!

Lana Givens: October 2016

I was introduced to ConfiDental through a patient advocate at CostaRicaDentalGuide.com. After the initial email to ConfiDental, I received an immediate reply and was very pleased with the communication and pricing. I read many glowing reviews from past patients, and now I feel the same! Dr. Garita explained everything and the entire team took such great care of me. I would strongly recommend ConfiDental to friends and family. I felt very comfortable and cared for by a great staff. Painless procedure with good attention and care.

Mary Ellen Mitchell: September 2016

After more than ten years and three attempts with reputable dentists to get decent dental bridgework, a leak had caused decay and bridge replacements, the appearance was never unacceptable, and one bridge caused recurring intermittent pain. I was poorer and generally fed up. Short of extracting all remaining upper teeth, I would never end the costly cycle, never have the smile I’d only dreamed of with comfort and functionality of fit.

I considered Beverly Hills but a $22,000 estimate for nine units was a bit much.

Then an acquaintance mentioned her experience with a Dr. Jose Garita in San Jose, Costa Rica. After emailing photos and receiving feedback from Dr. Garita, I decided to give it a try. His price estimate plus airfare, food and ten days’ hotel was less than half my most recent Florida estimate. Besides, my wife wanted to see some of Costa Rica.

After ten marathon days of his conscientious care and meticulous attention to detail, Dr. Garita more than proved the validity of my friend’s praise for him. I now have the most beautiful, unobtrusive natural looking bridgework ever. With a totally comfortable, perfect fit around the gum lines!

A big bonus was that my wife, fearful of dentists after bad experiences in her youth in another country, decided to give Dr. Garita a try after meeting him. She also became the recipient of his superb work — three bridges to replace long lost teeth, replacement of amalgam fillings, and other maintenance, all in the same ten days with the help of another dentist in Dr. Garita’s office.

During our treatment, Dr. Garita offered us an educational tour of the dental lab. While I was having bridge fittings, the lab technician made himself available for minor corrections to his work for us. He hand carried the work back to his lab and returned it the following day.

Producing the promised quality at the price he quoted, Dr. Garita guaranteed our satisfaction beyond us merely walking out his office door. And for my wife and me combined, the total cost (investment) was considerably less than it would have been in Florida.

Bud Fultz: August 2016

When we went to Costa Rica to find dental work, we were not looking for the best price, we were looking for the best care and also the best restoration work that would help increase our longevity and quality of life. Not only did we find that, but we learned later that the cost is between 1/3 to 1/2 of what we were used to paying inside the United States. We were also pleased to find out, that as a new patient, Dr. Garita paid for our first night in a nice hotel, paid for our transportation from the airport to the hotel, plus a ride from the hotel to the dentist office. (all included in the dentist bill). They even give you a list of hotels that would be close to his office. ConfiDental is so concerned about your fears going to a country that you have never been to before, they address your mental discomfort and fears of being in a strange country, by helping you find hotels you can feel secure and safe in. By the time we made our third trip to San Jose, Costa Rica, ConfiDental makes San Jose feel like a home away from home.

As far as Jan’s dental work that was done, she had one implant put in, and several bridges replaced. Dr. Garita is a very gentle dentist, who is very caring and kind. Jan had only intended to have her teeth cleaned and and have X-Rays done. Once Jan saw the quality of work and materials used, and the absence of pain Jim experienced getting zirconia bridges, she also wanted more dental work done by Dr. Garita.

Dr. Marcela Jimenez, also was very gentle cleaning my teeth and considerate of the pain level. I have TMJ, and both Dr. Garita and Dr. Marcela were willing to work with me, (considering the TMJ) not to cause me too much discomfort.

Anyone reading this should be aware that Dr. Marcela Jimenez, is a general dentist, Dr. Garita is a dental surgeon. His brother is a dentist, their father was a dentist, and their grandfather was a dentist. Dr. Garita is a third generation of dentists in his immediate family, who has learned not only from his schooling, but also the personal care he must have experienced from his father and grandfather.

On a scale of 5 stars, Dr. Jose Garita from ConfiDental Dentistry in San Jose, Costa Rica, deserves more than 10 stars. Between the two of us, we have been cared for by more than 6 different dentists in the United States. The best dental care was in Hastings, Minnesota, until we met Dr. Jose Garita. The equipment and the care, the variety of options and the methods used to block the pain were superior to anything we have experienced in the United States.

When looking for a knowledgeable, painless, caring dental surgeon, look no further, … ConfiDental and Dr. Jose Garita is a real find!

Jim & Jan Rossing: July 2016

To be fair I had neglected my own dental care. I had had a couple of implants and some crowns to try to straighten some front crooked teeth, without much success, that was over twenty years ago.

But in my seventies I felt the beginning of two front teeth starting to wear on the back. I let it go until they were so bad and worn down that I knew I had to do something.

I knew I needed two crowns for sure. I thought while I was about it I would have veneers on the other six front upper teeth, a matched set. I had already done quite a bit of research on cosmetic surgery Costa Rica, so I was comfortable with their level of services. And that most dentists and cosmetic surgeons are US board certified. I contacted several services, some did not even bother to get back to me. One that did was Jake Roberts an International patient coordinator. I failed to respond, I just was not ready. But he followed up, no pressure and overtime I got to feel comfortable with him. When I was ready he informed me of the dentist he recommended, Dr. Garita.

I was told I would need at least five working days for my procedure. Two crowns and six veneers. I arrived in Costa Rica on Sunday for a 10am. appointment on Monday.

I arrived at 10 am. His staff were personable and accommodating. One of the other dentists drove me to another facility for 3D imaging. I paid an extra $20. For that, but it was worth it. Dr. Garita had a complete image of my total mouth and teeth. So he knew exactly what needed to be done. He checked the strength of my bite and explained that as I had a very strong bite, veneers would not be appropriate. He also explained that I should go with the strongest type of material. Zirconia with porcelain. There was no difference in price, except crowns would be more expensive than veneers, but not by much. I had already determined crowns would be much longer lasting. We agreed.

He started the prep work. Removing the existing three crowns that I suspect was the hardest part. He had given me local anesthetic so I could feel nothing. What had originally felt was it would take Monday and part of Tuesday for prep. Monday afternoon after four hours, prep was completed and I left his office with temporary teeth, which I thought looked pretty good.

I must point out, Dr. Garita s facility is well equipped and spotless. His rooms are light and spacious with modern equipment and a spectacular view over the park.

Tuesday was a free day. As I had not heard anything more. I called Wednesday morning to get an update. I was told my crowns would be back from the lab at 5pm. And they would fit them at that time. I spent around an hour while he made adjustments to make sure they were comfortable. It is quite remarkable how they produce the crowns. Once in I still had the protruding front teeth. He explained that as the crown is mounted over the offending teeth they would sit exactly the same. But they took more molds so that the lab can mount the crowns as though they were in my mouth. At that point they would build up the offending crown to match the one beside it. At that time they would also match the color I had chosen.

Next morning, Thursday I was asked to be at the office at 1.30 for the final fitting and cementing. Once everything was cemented. We looked at them. On the two front teeth there was a slight imperfection. My thought was to leave it as it made them totally natural. I didn’t think he was comfortable with that, so I took a photo and texted it to my wife for opinion. She agreed with Dr. Garita. By mid afternoon I had my new teeth. They were comfortable and completely natural. Natural to the point that I don’t even look at them in the mirror. I am glad I stayed the extra day just in case I needed an adjustment. But everything was fine. The worst part was having the cement removed from around the gums and between the teeth. But it was also an important part.

Dr. Garita explained everything. From day one I was extremely comfortable with Dr. Garita, his staff and facility. Next year I will return for my lower teeth. I would recommend him to anyone, feel comfortable and completely at ease and know you will get a first class job, that like me will exceed your expectations

Time spent at the office, less than eight hours total over five days. Cost. Including air fare and accommodation for 6 nights and food. $600. Per crown. Cost in US. I was quoted by my dentist. $950-1300 per tooth and two weeks to finish.

On a side note, after my return my wife and I were talking to a friend who like my wife has perfect teeth. We were talking about my having the crowns. I remarked that I had never known two women with such natural perfect teeth. She nodded her head and said, “no, these are veneers” we were in shock. She then told us her husband had veneers on his lower teeth. But because he grinds his teeth he has been told they will have to be replaced with crowns. Six crowns, $6000. He hasn’t had them done yet so I will take him with me next time I go. Glad Dr. Garita suggested I stay away from veneers.

As far as Jan’s dental work that was done, she had one implant put in, and several bridges replaced. Dr. Garita is a very gentle dentist, who is very caring and kind. Jan had only intended to have her teeth cleaned and and have X-Rays done. Once Jan saw the quality of work and materials used, and the absence of pain Jim experienced getting zirconia bridges, she also wanted more dental work done by Dr. Garita.

Dr. Marcela Jimenez, also was very gentle cleaning my teeth and considerate of the pain level. I have TMJ, and both Dr. Garita and Dr. Marcela were willing to work with me, (considering the TMJ) not to cause me too much discomfort.

KeithThorne: December 2016

We recently traveled to Costa Rica for the sole purpose of my husband having major dental work... (four extractions, 6-tooth bridge, and a double filling). After a routine checkup, I too underwent major dental work (two root canals and fitting of Invisalign retainers). This is my husband's second time visiting Dr. Jose Garita at Confidental. His first visit was for a root canal which required surgery. We cannot speak highly enough of the treatment and care we have received from Dr. Garita, his dental assistants, Fabiola and Flor, and his receptionist, Isabel. This dental practice is first class, and Dr. Garita is an extremely dedicated and experienced dentist, who received training in the United States. We would not hesitate in recommending Dr. Garita at ConfiDental, for all your dental needs.read more

Do not hesitate to have all your dental issues taken care of at Confidental in Costa Rica. The... staff is fabulous and go above and beyond to make you comfortable. Dr. Garita is very knowledgeable, has the latest equipment and really wants his patients to be happy with the end result. I had a full mouth makeover and couldn’t be happier. I now have the smile I always wanted and I thank Dr. Garita and his staff for making my dreams come true.read more
I needed a dental assessment due to pain and got an appointment on short notice. The diagnostic... possibilities, the differential diagnoses were discussed and explained clearly. The communication in english was flawless. The prices were told in advance. The whole assessment was professional yet friendly. As patient I was in focus, not the money. I thank Dr. Garita and his team for the help. Highly recommended.read more

The photos should speak for themselves. If you're traveling here for dental work, you need to start... here. Dr Jose Garita is an EXPERT in the field. Magnitude of experience and rotations between NYU, California and many many more. My brand new teeth and smile speak for every second of Dr Garita's years and experience in dental medicine. Oh...and his English is perfect too!I was coming from America with no knowledge of anything when I started. I was scared. I had a severely diseased mouth with no options. After reaching out to 10 different dental practices in Costa Rica, I soon realized why Confidental is rated #1.The office is located securely in beautiful La Sabana, and the beautiful Ms Isabella (+506 8504 8409) whom also speaks perfect English, will help arrange ANYTHING you need on your stay once here. I even got a free massage 😍! (Not from her lol). Transportation, savings on hotels, assistance in flight arrangements, after procedure care will be provided.The international coordinator Benjamin (+506 8543 4291) is where you'll be directed at the start. He will walk you through everything you need to know.I had a magnitude of disease in my mouth. Started losing teeth around 14 years old after an injury, I'm 39 now. I needed multiple bone grafts. Not only from bone loss over the years, but also to replace the active infection Dr Garita had to remove from my upper jawbone. I had five implants on top and four on the bottom with zirconium upper and lower bars. It's important to note that Dr Garita only uses the best zirconium and best implants. Which means they are under warranty. That is a huge peace of mind.The entire process for me was two trips. The first trip of 12 days, and a second trip of 14 days. With a 4-month healing period back home in between. Don't worry, Dr Garita is going to make sure you have a perfectly functional, aesthetically pleasing set of temporary teeth to go home with after your first appointment. The office even checks up on you once you're home.All I can say is good things about my experience with Dr Garita, Isabella, Benjamin and many other wonderful staff.Before you start looking elsewhere in San Jose, understand, there are going to be a lot of cheaper options. There is a very good reason why they are cheaper!!! You know better! Do not get lured in by one and done, inexpensive talk from inexperienced dentists using less quality materials. Do not fall for the other options in San Jose. If you want quality and expertise then you will have to start with confidental.See the three before and three after photos if you need proof. All I have to do now is relearn how to smile now that it has been given back to me. Pure Life!!! ❤️-Brentread more

I had the opportunity to visit the ConfiDental dental clinic in Costa Rica, and I must say it was... an exceptional experience from start to finish. ConfiDental is really amazing. The level of service and expertise overpassed my expectations. From the patient coordinator to the administrative team and the medical staff, you can really notice the expertise and professionalism, always warm, friendly and very helpful. Dr. Garita is really professional and skilled, taking the time to explain every step of the procedure I needed clearly and reassuring, which significantly eased any apprehensions I had. The clinic is really comfortable, clean and equipped with modern technology and strict protocols for sterilization. I highly recommend ConfiDental to those looking for a dental clinic that prioritizes high quality and patient satisfaction.Thanks ConfiDental!P.S. Love their coffee! 👌🏼☕️read more

Probably the best dental experience I’ve ever had. As an American, getting dental work in the... states is tough and very expensive. It is a fraction of the cost here and with way better care than most U.S. dentists! The staff and dentist are so great and helpful. I got implants done and was terrified at first, but after consulting with the doctor they made the procedure a breeze. I want to thank Dr. Garita and the staff who gave me my smile and bite back! The process was smooth and easy! If you’re considering doing dental tourism go here. They are seriously the best dentist in Costa Rica! Thank you all so much!read more

I'm so upset with this place that I don't even know where to start.After viewing the video that... Benjamin did, I realized I got so ripped off.They never offered a ride from the airport. I paid 45$ in a cab at 11 pm, due to the plane being delayed.They never offered to pick me up for my appointment. I took an Uber, which is cheaper than a Taxi, but still paid 15$, one way.When I got to my appointment, I asked questions about the treatment plan, and the office lady said 100$.Long story short, they charged me 200$! I already sent them a pano and bitewing, but they insisted on the 3D scan. I've been a dental hygienist for 25 years, and saying you need a 3D scan is a total scam.I'll post pics of the messages that I received saying I need a sinus lift and get this-250 for antibiotics!!I feel like reporting them to the Dental Society. I'm running out of room. Will post pics of our convo once I figure out how to do it.Oh, and he wouldn't let my service animal in! I will probably file a complaint with the American Disability Act.read more

I had “the works” done at Confidental - 11 extractions and 9 implants! Major, major work. 6... months start to finish. With such a great amount of work we were very careful to choose the right dentist for this journey. Dr Garrita and his staff are beyond wonderful. In addition to amazing and considerate patient care (nervous and somewhat phobic) Dr Garrita offers exceptional experience and skill. Coupled with a perfectionist approach in attention to detail for fit, feel and appearance this dentist ensures that you walk away absolutely, 100% happy with the final results. Excellent communication and scheduling. Exceeded any dentist I have visited in the USA.There are many choices for dental work in San Jose, Costa Rica and we cannot recommend Confidental highly enough.read more
Dr. Garita and his staff are great. Super professional, kind, caring and very skilled.I had met... with Dr. Garita for a consultation for implants. That process went smoothly, and, unlike some dentists in CR, they have the proper 3D x-ray equipment they need to provide a full treatment plan.Well, while waiting for the treatment plan, and still in Costa Rica, I experienced a major dental emergency. I contact Dr. Garita's patient coordinator, Benjamin, at 7am, before the office opened and explained the situation, and he said he would get back to me after they opened at 8.He got back to me promptly at 8 (have you been to Costa Rica... You could possibly wait a few days for a reply at times from a business) and said that they could see me that evening at 5.That evening, Dr. Garita, his office manager, and two of his hygienists, stayed two hours past their closing time, and solved my issue.I can not recommend ConfiDental highly enough, and I'm looking forward to returning for implants in a few months!read more

The dentist you want to have is the dentist you can trust . I chose Dr Garita and confidential... clinic based on good reviews from his clients . From the moment I walked in, I was treated with kindness and respect, from the front office to the assistants/hygienists . Dr Garita has a very calm demeanor which puts you at ease and makes you feel very comfortable at the clinic . He really took the time to go through and discuss all the best options for my teeth and followed it up by giving me my dream smile! I came to Dr Garita with teeth that were in bad shape and ended up having very extensive work done including bone graft , implants , root canal and crowns during my 2 visits to Costa Rica . All my top crowns are zirconia and they look amazing . I am very happy with my results . I had some serious sensitivity after dental work for about 2 weeks ( expected) but now it's completely gone and I can any food I want I am getting a lot of complements from people here in US . My teeth look extremely natural , not fake . I am so happy that I finally had it done in Costa Rica !For all people that are looking for a dentist in San Jose Costa Rica I highly recommend him .read more

I highly recommend this office for any kind of dental work. Dr Garita is a top professional that... will take care of your teeth like no one else. He’s a type of a doctor you can trust. The office is very clean, the hygiene is top, everyone is very nice and professional. Before every single small procedure he explained me what we are going to do, why is it necessary etc. Had to fly twice with 6 weeks break in between in order to let my gums heal before the second procedure, but it was definitely worth it.On top of the excellent dental work him and his team go above and beyond to take care of you , to help accommodate and make you feel comfortable .read more

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

I love ConfiDental Clinic in Costa Rica and Dr. Jose Garita. When I first contacted the clinic,... Dr. Roberts was amazing and helped me determine what I needed. After many long discussions, emails and text he provided me a treatment estimate. When I arrived at the airport, ConfiDental had a personal driver pick me up and take me to my Hotel that was close to the clinic. I was greeted by a lovely lady, Alajandra and Dr. Garita's wife, Margoth. Margoth was so warm and welcoming and was genuinely a very nice person. From the moment I stepped into their very clean and hi-tech clinic, I knew ConfiDental would be my new dental home. The clinic was the most modern clinic I have ever seen. I had a complete mouth rehabilitation as you can see by the pictures. The aesthetics were wonderful, the bite was amazing and my life changed forever. I will never go to another clinic in my life. I would highly recommend ConfiDental and Dr. Jose Garita.read more
