We believe that Colina Dental is one of the best dental offices in Costa Rica. But don’t take our word for it. Read what our patients have to say about Colina Dental.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful care and attention and also for the marvelous dental work.
I highly recommend Colina Dental. I was first interested because of their CAD/CAM and 30 minute crowns. During my visit, I received a recommendation from Dr. Julian Conejo for restoration of my teeth. His detailed recommendations and commitment to non-invasive work, together with an unbelievably low quote convinced me to choose Colina Dental.
In the process of doing the work, there were new issues that arose such as additional cavities, a cracked tooth, a possible dead tooth, and a post that needed replacing. As each problem arose, the doctors simply kept moving and fixing everything. There was no delay and the regular work kept on schedule. The doctors (Dr. Julian Conejo & his mother Dr. Maricarmen Gutierrez) were very gentle and were always concerned about my comfort. Six days after basically showing up on your doorstep, I was completely finished ( two crowns, 4 veneers, 3 inlays, removal of three old amalgam fillings, replacement of 14 discolored fillings, a new post for one tooth, zoom whitening plus a night guard.
The original quote was honored completely even though Dr. Gutierrez found more fillings that needed to be done and Dr. Conejo made me a night guard. I was amazed that the total cost was under $5,000 U.S.
The family works as a team and they were all friendly, professional and efficient. If anyone is interested in talking to me on the telephone, I would be happy to do so.
I had a recent cleaning with my dentist in Canada and they were impressed with the quality of the work done.

I am happy to tell you that everything is perfect with the dental work that was done at Colina Dental. I have had no problems with my extractions or my implants. My dentures are absolutely perfect.
I want to thank your coworkers for their kindness and excellent service.
And finally, I want to thank you personally. You are the most kind and considerate person I have ever encountered as a patient. You answered every question I asked, and you treated all of my concerns with professional courtesy.
Thank you very much,
I would like to thank you for everything you did for me to make my trip to Colina Dental so exceptional. From our initial contact, through our correspondence, and finally through our everyday contact, you were wonderful and I don’t think anyone could ask for someone to do a better job.
Thank you so much.
I would also like you to pass along to Keren and (the other) Ana for being so pleasant and helpful at the front desk. They were always in such a pleasant mood just great to be around.
For anyone concerned about the quality of work such as the concerns my wife had, let me tell you I have been to quite a few dentist in the states mainly in CT and I would rank them with the best of the best. Better than the dentist I had been going to for over 25 years, who was supposedly one of the best in our area. I had some pretty extensive work done here, from implants, root canal, to Crowns and I was very happy with all four of the dentist that did work on me. I could carry on about each of the doctors and for different reasons. The perfectionist, the touch, the care, and my favorite the glow. Most people won’t be concerned over those aspects so I will mention the one that they would be concern about, the quality of work and there they all shined at Colina Dental.
Another aspect that made Colina so great was having a lab right on premise and where I would have had to wait a week at another dentist most lab procedures were done the same day. Having all the latest technology really helps. Great lab and digital technology.
So please let everyone know I was more than please to have been lucky enough to use Colina Dental as my dentist.
I just want to say thank you so much for all the wonderful care and attention from you and the dentists and also for the marvelous dental work.
I would highly recommend Colina Dental. I was first interested because they use the Cad Cam and offered 30 minute crowns. Upon using my free consultation I got a recommendation from Dr. Julian Conejo for restoration of my teeth.

I arrived in Costa Rica on holiday from Ireland with no intention of getting dental treatment, however due to a little accident I broke a front tooth, right in the root. By chance I found Colina Dental, it turned out to be one of the luckiest finds of my life. Looking only for emergency repair I was greeted by Dr Maricarmen and her team, very quickly I realized these people were kind and compassionate experts, with the very latest state of the art equipment, in a beautiful and hygienic clinic.
I felt very comfortable having the full repair work carried out, in this case an implant.
On discovering the cost and fantastic value on offer I decided on a full check-up and stayed to have quite a bit of additional work.
There was no question of getting the final crown over implant done in Europe, Colina Dental was the place for me. So I booked a return trip and even brought my brother, now we are both delighted with our smiles.
So thank you to all at Colina, your quality, expertise, hygiene and compassionate care are the standard by which all dentists should be judged.
Have you ever hugged your dentist?
I hadn’t either until I met Dr. Gutierrez at Colina Dental, Costa Rica. I saw her every day for four days, and I hugged her every time I left her office, as I was so grateful for the wonderful and compassionate treatment I was receiving.
I selected Colina Dental for my porcelain veneers because of their in-house lab, and I am so glad I did! I arrived on Monday, expecting to get 4-6 veneers to cover some teeth where the bonding came off, leaving gashes in the teeth. They looked terrible. The two US dentists I had consulted suggested just covering the four teeth with veneers for $4800. Dr. Gutierrez took one look at my mouth and said “we should do some about your bite.” My teeth have always met in the front; never having the upper teeth in front of the lowers. I was so excited that she should suggest such a thing, but it would require twelve veneers, and I had only four days to get it all done. Dr. Gutierrez rearranged her schedule, and the work was complete in time for my return flight. My veneers are beautiful, and I am so grateful to Dr. Gutierrez for making my mouth “normal” for the first time in my life! The cost of the 12 veneers which completely changed my mouth was $5400; only slightly more than the 4 veneers in the US, which would have only covered the gashes, but left my poor bite in place!
Everyone I met at Colina Dental was wonderful. The first contact is with the beautiful Ana, who schedules your appointments with the appropriate specialist. The lovely receptionist who greets you in English and with a big smile is Greta. The skilled technician who cleaned my teeth was Claire, and Dr. Gutierrez’s kind assistant is Lorena. Last but not least, is Fabiano (the Fabuloso)! He is the dental lab technician (artist) who built my veneers. Dr. Gutierrez involved him in every step of the process; designing in his lab what he and Dr. Gutierrez envisioned for my strange bite! I so appreciate his efforts. Dr. Gutierrez told me that Fabiano had worked until 10 p.m. the night before my veneers appointment, to complete my veneers on time and to their exacting standards. I don’t know how one could get great personal and fast service unless there is an in-house lab and an amazing dental lab technician like Fabiano!
I feel so fortunate (and blessed) to have found the kindness and skill of Dr. Gutierrez and her team. Knowing that she is a perfectionist and a founder of the practice with her husband Oscar (Julian is their son) I would feel comfortable with any of the dentists on the staff at Colina Dental. They must all be extraordinary, or Dr. Gutierrez wouldn’t permit them to practice in her family business.
I love my new smile. Thank you Dr. Gutierrez and Colina Dental!
