I cannot sing my praises for Dr. Obando and Nova Dental loudly enough!
I had wanted to fix my smile for years, but the expense always kept me from doing it. Bad teeth run in my family. I was considering the "All on four" total replacement procedure and started to price it here in the U.S.
Once I got estimates, again I figured it was just something that I couldn't afford and that I was going to have to live with the teeth I had.
Then a friend (and patient) of Nova told me about Dr. Obando. I contacted Nova Dental, and got the preliminary process started.
On my first visit, Dr. Obando told me that most of my teeth were healthy enough to stay and that I didn't need to go as extreme as I thought. I didn't need the "All on four" procedure. He then came up with a new plan, a series of implants, crowns, filling replacements, and bone grafting.
(Bone graft. 9 implants. 18 crowns. 4 fillings replaced.)
The price was even less than the "All on four." Imagine that! Dr. Obando cares so much for his patients that he actually came up with a plan that would save me money on the already affordable original plan.
The first week went quick and painless. I went for the IV sedation so I was out the whole time. (Well worth it. I admit it, I'm a big baby when it comes to dental work.)
With the four month healing period over, I returned to Costa Rica at the end of July, this time for a two week stay. More IV sedation, the permanent crowns and fillings done.
I'm home now with a beautiful new smile! Including airfare and hotel for both trips, I spent lass than HALF of what this would have cost me in the U.S. My girlfriend came with me on both trips and had an implant and a crown done as well and she's extremely happy with it.
I cannot recommend Nova Dental highly enough. If you are thinking about having any dental work done, this is where you want to be! The entire staff is awesome! Everything about the experience was top notch. Thank you Dr. Obando and everyone at Nova Dental!
