So being super afraid of the dentist most of my life until now. From start to finish it's been the most pleasant experience I've ever encountered at a dentist. That chair is the scariest thing to me and now I have no fear. After my second root canal in my entire life the first one being a complete nightmare in the states and this one here in Costa Rica it was painless and a unbelievable experience. I'm so happy I have no fear of the dentist again. Thank you Dr Chavez and team

Being deathly afraid of dentists and dentistry, and needing my entire bottom teeth extracted, I was fortunate enough to be referred to Dr Chavez. His office is immaculate, his staff professional and all work is done on premises. Dr Chavez couldn’t have been kinder or more competent. I decided to redo my uppers so I could finally have white teeth. I had 6 implants on the bottom and a bridge and crowns on the top. This was not an easy process, but his consideration and concern made it bearable. I traveled from the USA to Costa Rica and it was probably the best decision I’ve ever made. I would highly recommend Dr Chavez to anyone needing extraordinary dental work. Robin Kaufman

Roughly a year ago, after we had moved to Jaco, I contacted this clinic regarding full replacements, implants, uppers and lowers. The time span to get the implants completed was just a few days. We were able to take our time since we lived there and didn't have to leave right away. The results are excellent, in fact, today, August 22nd, 2023, I had a cleaning appointment with Riverstone Dental here in Coeur d'Alene, ID. The Dental Hygienist commented several times while she was cleaning and polishing, regarding the high quality of work that was done. The application and fit was so well done that she found no food or plaque, on, under, or around the teeth or gum line. Thank you Dr. Chevez. We have referred Chevez Dental with multiple friends, expats, around Jaco, who have gotten work done, also very satisfied. I think you'll be pleased!

I went down there last week and had root canals and veneers. OUTSTANDING experience overall!!! I would definitely recommend anyone to this remarkability clean and modern Dental Clinic. Not only was I impressed with how clean it was there, but I was also incredibly happy with how accommodating the entire process was. I got the quote before I went down there and that is exactly what I paid. They created a dental plan, arranged the hotel, and even picked me up at the airport in San Jose and drove me to my hotel. Which, by the way was in walking distance to the clinic and local shops. Here is a picture of my horrible teeth before. The after photo was at the hotel they arranged for me. Have to say though.............LOVE MY NEWFOUND CONFIDENCE!!!

Mr. Chaves put veneers on my two front teeth. After having an accident during a white water rafting trip that damaged my front teeth, I went back to Mr. Chaves to repair them. He not only fixed them for free, he upgraded them to crowns which he said would be stronger etc. Honorable man.. I really appreciate how he handled this.
