Doctor Alberto Coto was the medical tourism dentist who butchered me.He was even promoted on an NBC news station wjhg where he guarenteed all of his work to American patients.

I need to mention that when I was butchered by Doctor Coto his company name was high tech dental clinic. He has since changed his location to Rohrmoser San Jose Costa Rica and changed the company name to Implant and Cosmetics Solutions. I'm quite sure he will change his business name and location over and over to fool the trusting public. I went to doctor Coto for a few dental procedures including a couple of implants and to have veneers put on all of my at the time healthy teeth.

I was sent home in terrible pain on all my teeth and was told it was from the grinding of my teeth and put on a liquid diet for a month. One month later ( and still in the recission period on my credit card ) I contacted Doctor Coto stating that I was still in pain and had been to several American dentists who all confirmed that my veneers were put on incorrectly and needed to be re-done. I then went back to Doctor Coto where he put crowns on all of my teeth instead. While on the 2nd trip.

doctor Coto broke my tooth causing 3 root canals to be preformed while in his care. He screwed up my *** so badly that I now suffer from severe TMj and live in constant pain. He left me with over half of the crowns in my mouth open margin ( that means the crowns are popped off the teeth ). I've been quoted $35,000 to fix my *** plus thousands more in additional work that I need because of Doctor Coto's incompitence.

I don't have the money to pay to have my teeth fixed so the story gets even worse. I've been told by several dentists that my teeth will start falling out because of all the open margins. I suffer from a sezure disorder and dentures can slip during a sezure. Therefore, when I become toothless no dentist will risk my life with dentures.

Doctor Coto refuses to pay to have my teeth fixed and he refused to refund the small fortune that I paid him to ruin my mouth in the first place. I tried the legal system in Costa Rica which was a joke. After Doctor coto refused to pay to have my teeth fixed I complained on-line everywhere I could and to anyone I thought might be able to help. Unfortunately, there is no freedom of speech in Costa Rica.

According to Costa Rican law, it is a felony to speak against the reputation of a Costa Rican citizen unless or until they have first been found guilty of a crime in a Costa Rican court of law. Therefore, I committed a felony according to Costa Rica. I was lucky to flee that 3rd world country before I was arrested. I have a few u-tube video's that's gives more details about my nightmare.

There are also have several comments from other Americans who were also butchered by this monster as well. One poor man was even sent home from Doctor Coto with his nerve exposed. Please feel free to read all the comments.

Doctor Coto has left a long trail of American victims under his belt.http://youtu.be/lgweBSQlR54

Implant and Cosmetics Solutions - Criminally negligent Medical Tourism Dentist - Doctor Coto

My name is Kimberly. I am an American who lives in the south Florida area.

I went to Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo just outside of San Jose Costa Rica for some dental work and to have veneers put on all of my at the time healthy teeth. After doctor Coto finished placing the veneers, all of my teeth were in a lot of pain. Doctor Coto stated that the pain was from the grinding of my teeth and I was placed on a liquid diet for a month.

One month later ( still under the rescission period on my debit card ) I called doctor Coto and told him that all of my teeth were still in a lot of pain. I also told Doctor Coto that I had been to 3 American dentists who all confirmed that the veneers were put on incorrectly and needed to be re-done.

Doctor Coto told me to fly back to Costa Rica and he would re-do my dentistry. After I flew back to Costa Rica, Doctor Coto looked at the x-ray's from the American dentists and apologized. He also stated that he would do a better job this time. Doctor Coto put zerconia crowns on my teeth this time because zerconia crowns are made by a computer. Doctor Coto claimed that he could not possibly make another mistake because the computer would make them perfectly.

I need to mention that Doctor Coto used some type of plastic strips across rows of approximately 6 teeth at a time to be used as temporaries. These strips were cemented on much too tightly. Instead of cutting off the strips, Doctor Coto struggled for several minutes with bruit force until I screamed at which point he broke one of my teeth. At that point, Doctor Coto called in a man by the name of Marco Aguilar to do a partial root canal on me. Afterward, Doctor Coto told me that Doctor Aguilar would finish the root canal the next day. I was then sent back to my bed & breakfast. Approximately 20 minutes later the Novocaine in my mouth began to wear off. I was in excruciating pain in 2 other teeth where the plastic strip was ripped off my grounded down teeth. I then called, e-mailed and left messages with Doctor Doctor Coto's staff explaining that I was in unbearable pain. Doctor Coto did not call me back until the next day.

The following day a driver took me to Doctor Aguilars office to finish the root canal. Doctor Aguilar took x-ray's and then called Doctor Coto and stated that I was going to need 2 additional root canals where the strips were ripped off my grounded down teeth. For a total of 3 root canals preformed.

After doctor Coto placed all the crowns on my teeth, several of the teeth were still in a lot of pain. Doctor Coto told me it was from the trauma of having the bad veneers on my teeth for an entire month. He stated that it was going to take another month for my teeth to heal.

One month later ( past the rescission period on my debit card ) I called Doctor Coto and stated that I was still in pain and that I had been to see several American dentists again. The long and short of it was that Doctor Coto refused to have my teeth fixed. The damaged Doctor Coto caused this time was far worse than the first time. I've had to have 2 more root canals preformed in the area where doctor Coto ripped the strip off my grounded down teeth. Doctor Coto screwed up my *** so badly that I now suffer from severe TMJ. I've been living with horrible pain in my face, ears, jaw and teeth for 18 months. Half of the teeth in my mouth have become open margin ( the crowns are popped off my teeth ). Several American dental specialists have explained that my teeth will now start falling out one by one because of all the open margins. When I become toothless, no dentist can give me dentures. I have a seizure disorder and dentures tend to slip during a seizure in which case I could choke to death. Therefore, no dentist will risk my life with non-permanent dentures. The cost to re-do my crowns is $35,000 ( which I don't have ) plus thousands more for additional work that I need because of Doctor Coto's negligence and incompetence.

I wrote a review about my botched dentistry with whatclinic.com ( The medical travel company where I found doctor Coto in the first place ). Whatclinic.com refused to post my review to warn the public and did not care about my medical evidence. I then filed complaints with placidway and several other medical tourism providers who use Doctor Coto as one of their dentists. Neither Whatclinic.com, Placidway nor any of the other medical tourism providers who use this man would post my review or stop using Doctor Coto as one of their dentists to the unaware public. In addition, I filed complaints against doctor Coto about my botched dentistry to several other complaint boards.

I hired a Costa Rican attorney to try to get doctor Coto to pay to have my teeth fixed. My Costa Rican attorney explained that if I tried to file criminal charges on doctor Coto or sue him that Doctor Coto would just bribe an official and make the case go away. I had to take my case in front of the Costa Rican dental coleigo because they had the power to take a dentists license away. In addition to my American dentist medical report, I had to be seen by a dentist in Costa Rican. I was actually examined by 3 Costa Rican dentists including a specialist who was on the board for approved opinions with the Costa Rican dental coleigo. All 3 Costa Rican dentists agreed with the American dental report which confirmed severe criminal negligence against doctor Coto. I also had medical evidence with before and after x-ray's proving my case as well.

When I got to the Dental Coleigo meeting, all they cared about was the fact that I filed complaints against Doctor Coto. According to Costa Rican law, it is considered a felony to speak against the reputation of a Costa rican citizen unless or until they have first been found guilty of a crime in a Costa Rican court of law. ( no freedom of speech in Costa Rica ). It did not matter that I filed those complaints from my own home in America. I had to flee Costa Rica immediately and I was extremely lucky that I wasn't arrested first and lock up abroad.

There are multiple consequences that can occur from an improper ***. They include, but are not limited to fracture of the teeth, fracture of the porcelain, loosened of the teeth in the bone, bone loss around the teeth, infection, jaw pain, pain in the facial muscles, neck pain, shoulder pain, inability to eat or speak properly, pain in the teeth, etc. My botched dentistry and severely improper *** caused from Doctor Coto's negligence has led to and endless amount of dental and medical problems. I now suffer from almost every symptom listed above. My condition continues to get worse because I can not afford to fix the mess that Doctor Coto left me with. I am only in my 40's. My quality of life has changed from that of a happy and active woman to horrible daily suffering, terrible constant pain and depression. Knowing that I will become toothless soon and can't even have dentures has almost paralyzed me.

I am willing to send copies of my medical reports to anyone who asks !

When Doctor Coto butchered me, the name of his company was high tech dental clinic. Doctor Coto has since moved his practice to another area in San Jose Costa Rica. He has also changed the name of his company to "IMPLANT AND COSMETICS SOLUTIONS". I have no doubt that Doctor Coto will change his company name and move his location over and over in an attempt to deceive the public.

I am not writing this complaint out of revenge. I am a christian woman and I am truly writing this to help innocent people who are desperate for less expensive dentistry. I understand that vengeance is for God and not for me. I have been praying about this nightmare for 18 months now. As much as I am suffering, I also know is that there is a reason for everything and that God uses people for good. I have spoken to several other people since this has happened to me who have also been butchered with medical tourism. I've even discussed it with a few church ministers as well. Almost every victim that I have spoken to or person who knew a victim, received their botched treatment in Costa Rica. The 2nd worst place for botched medical tourism in my research was Mexico.

Before you or anyone you know gets any medical and or dentistry abroad, please watch either of my u-tube medical tourism nightmare video's.

I have become much sicker than when I made them but, they are both very powerful and something everyone considering medical treatment abroad should watch. Again, I am willing to send anyone a copies of my medical reports to anyone who asks.

Implant and Cosmetics Solutions - Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo - Butchers & Maimes American Woman

Doctor Alberto Coto Clavo was the dentist. He broke my tooth causing 3 root canals to be preformed while in his care.

He left me with half of my teeth open margin ( the crowns are popped off my teeth ). He screwed up my *** so badly that I now suffer from severe TMJ. I live constant horrible pain every day of my life. I can't eat or speak properly and so on. In addition, a few of the cheaply made Costa Rican crowns in my mouth are now breaking apart. One crown in the back of my mouth has completely broken apart and my grounded down tooth is now bare.

The cost to fix my *** alone is $35,000 ( which I don't have ) plus thousands more for additional work that I need because of Doctor Coto's incompetence. Every American dental specialist that I've seen states that what Doctor Coto did to me falls under severe criminal negligence. In addition, I have been checked by 3 Costa Rican dental specialists who also confirmed severe negligence as well. Anyone who would like a copy of these medical reports is welcome to them.

Several American dental specialists also confirm that all of my teeth will start falling out one by one because of all the open margins. I can't get false teeth put in my mouth after I become toothless because I suffer from a seizure disorder. Dentures can slip during a seizure, in which case I could choke to death. Therefore, no American dentist will risk my life with non permanent dentures.

I was threatened in Costa Rica and almost charged with a felony and thrown in a foreign prison for complaining publicly about being butchered abroad. ( no freedom of speech in Costa Rica ). It is considered a very serious felony in Costa Rica to speak against the reputation of a Costa Rican citizen. For this reason I was not able to complete my charges against Doctor Coto at the Costa Rican dental coleigo. Anyone reading this should bare this in mind. If your dentist or doctor butchers you in Costa Rica and you complain about it in that country, then you will be charged with a felony and thrown in a Costa Rican prison.

When I originally went to Doctor Coto for my medical tourism dentistry, he worked under a different business name. Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo has since conveniently changed the name of his business from High Tech dental clinic to " Implant and Cosmetics Solutions " and has moved his practice to " Rohrmoser - San Jose Costa Rica. " I have no doubt that he will to continue to change his business name and move his practice over and over again in an attempt to deceive the public. He could also possibly work under the name of a different dentist or use a fictitious name all together. One of his latest tricks on-line is an advertisement heading under "dental implants and cosmetics solutions" and when you pull it up, it then states " implant and cosmetics solutions " on his web-site. Hence the word dental is in under the first heading which is meant to deceive you. If you decide to risk getting medical tourism dentistry in Costa Rica anyway, you can always google search "Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo San Jose Costa Rica Images" ( my image will most likely be next to his ) at least you will be able to see what he looks like so that you are not tricked by him once you get to Costa Rica.

As of today August 13, 2012 - I have been living in constant horrible pain daily. My medical condition has become much worse since I went to Doctor Coto for treatment 18 months ago. Also, as of today - I contacted Doctor Coto one more time and asked him if he would pay my local dentist directly to fix my teeth that he botched so badly.

On August 13, 2012 Doctor Coto first asked me first if I would go to a dentist in Costa Rica to have my teeth fixed.

I told Doctor Coto no for 3 reasons.

#1.) - I can never step foot in Costa Rica again after I was threatened and almost charged with a felony. I know that I was lucky to flee Costa Rica as quickly as I did to escape imprisonment for complaing about my botched dentistry publically with Doctor Coto.

# 2.) - It will take several months for any dentist to fix my teeth including in Costs Rica.

# 3.) - I've learned my lesson about trusting anyone outside of my own country with any medical and or dentistry ever again.

On this same conversation ( August 13, 2012 ) Doctor Coto stated that he did not have $35,000 to pay my dentist in America to fix my teeth.

He also stated that he may contact me in the future about it. It's been 18 months since Doctor coto butchered and maimed me. It's been 18 months that I've been fighting for Doctor Coto to pay to have my teeth fixed that he severely botched. I am not holding my breath for Doctor Coto to call me back.

Doctor Coto runs an international medical tourism practice. Mainly his patients come from America, Canada and some from Europe.

Unfortunately, Doctor Coto does not understand our morals, ethics or how we think and feel as a people.

Doctor Coto seems to think that if he gets some of his friends to write good reviews about him, that it will make him seem like a great guy.

He doesn't seem to understand that when someone offers you medical evidence of being butchered from several highly respected American specialists then we know it to be true pure and simple.

Doctor Coto refused to refund the small fortune that I paid him. He has refused to pay to have my teeth fixed that he botched and maimed so badly. My condition is getting worse and worse every day. In addition, Doctor Coto has also called me a scam and other nasty things on-line. Doctor Coto thinks if he calls me bad names and throws references out there, that the public will be " *** " enough to ignore the medical evidence that can not be disputed.

Like I said, Doctor Coto thinks we are *** and he does not understand us at all !

Anyone who would like a copy of my medical reports can leave me a message on my u-tube channel and I'll e-mail them to you right away.

My story gets much worse and something every American, Canadian and European should watch ! Before getting any medical and or dentistry abroad, please go to u-tube and click on my channel ( kimberly4064 ) I have 4 video's on my personal medical tourism nightmare. Watch them all and pass them along to anyone you know who is considering this same horrible mistake. If you prefer you can go to my most recent blog that covers my entire medical tourism nightmare with Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo. It also covers everything up to my current medical condition.

I did hire an attorney in Costa Rica.It was explained to me that if I filed criminal charges against Doctor Coto or a law suite that Doctor Coto would just bribe an official and make the case go away.

My only chance to get Doctor Coto to pay to have my teeth fixed was to take him in front of the Costa Rican dental Coleigo because they had the power to take Dioctor Coto's liscense away. When I went to the Dental Coleigo meeting in Costa Rica I had x-rays and medical reports from both American and Costa Rican dentists confirming severe criminal negligence against Docor Coto. All the Costa Rican dental Coleigo cared about was the fact that I filed complaints about doctor Coto on-line from my home in America. It is a felony to speak against the reputation of a costa Rican citizen unless or until that persn has first been found guilty of a crime in a Costa Rican court of law.

I actually had to flee Costa Rica immediately before I was arrested for a felony. The legal system in Costa Rica is very corrupt and works against Americans who are butchered in that country. As far as Doctor Coto's credentials in miami, he only has a piece of paper proving that he took a class there. Doctor Coto tries to make that paper seem as if he passed an American medical board but, he did not.

He has no real credentials in America other that a piece of paper that states that he took a class in miami.It means nothing !!!

Criminally Negligent Medical Tourism Dentist Implant and Cosmetics Solutions - Doctor Alberto Coto

Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo was the medical tourism dentist who butchered me in San Jose Costa Rica.

He broke my tooth causing 3 root canals to be preformed while in his care. He left me with half of my mouth open margin ( the crowns are popped off my teeth ). He screwed up my *** so badly that I now suffer from severe TMJ. I live in horrible pain on a daily basis. I can't eat or speak properly and so on.

The cost to fix my *** alone is $35,000 ( which I don't have ) plus thousands more for additional root canals that I now need because of Doctor Coto's negligence. Several American dental specialist have confirmed that all of my teeth will start falling out one by one because of all the open margins in my mouth. When I become toothless no dentist will give me dentures because I have a seizure disorder. Dentures can slip during a seizure and I could choke to death. Therefore I am stuck. For the record Doctor coto knew of my seizure disorder when he butchered me.

When I complained publicly about being butchered abroad, I was threatened and almost charged with a felony for speaking against the reputation of a Costa rican citizen ( no freedom of speech in Costa Rica ). I had to flee that country immediately and was lucky that I wasn't thrown in a Costa Rican prison.

When Doctor Coto butchered me his company name was high tech dental clinic in curridbat Costa Rica. Like most scam artists, he has since changed his business name to "Implant and Cosmetics Solutions" and has moved his practice to Rohrmoser San Jose Costa Rica in the Rohrmoser Medical Center. Beware, he could change his business name and location over and over again. He could also possibly work under another dentists name.

Like most sociopaths, Doctor Coto is a good talker, lies well and offers references to his patients as he did with me. Bare in mind that Ted Bundy had many people who swore that he was a great guy too. Doctor Coto also offers a 100 % guarantee on all of his work. He refused to pay to have my teeth fixed after he butchered me so there you have it. Doctor Coto comes up with many lies and excuses for what he did to me thinking that he can scam the public. I have medical reports from highly respected American dental specialists confirming criminal negligence against Doctor Coto pure and simple and without dispute.

I am including a copy of my first medical report taken shortly after I was butchered by Doctor Coto. My condition has become far worse since then. The medical report doesn't align right on this complaint but, I can send a good copy to anyone who wants one. Just go to my blog http://www.rogers406412.blogspot.com and it will take you to my utube video about my nightmare with doctor Coto. Send me a message on my utube channel and I will send you back a better copy. You should watch my video anyway as my story is much more horrific than what is on this complaint.

I hope this complaint spares many people from my fate.

Michael S. Ramer, D.D.S.

Prosthodontist

May 18, 2011

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter on behalf of my patient Kimberly Rogers. As you can see from my

Ietterhead, I am a Prosthodontist, which is a dental specialist in the fabrication of crown and

bridge procedures. I have been working as an expert in this field since 1992. I have done a

comprehensive dental evaluation, reviewed all available x-rays and analyzed the patient's ***. It

is my professional opinion that the dental work previously done was beneath the standard of care

and done improperly. The patient had a full mouth of porcelain crowns done and when she bites

down, she should be able to make contact with all her teeth simultaneously. That is not the case.

The patient is only biting d-own on a few of her front teeth and none of her back teeth are hitting.

That is totally improper and by any dental standard would be considered negligent. There are also multiple areas where cement was not cleaned properly after the crowns were cemented and one of the crowns shows an obvious poor fit to the tooth when evaluated on the x-ray.

There are multiple consequences that can occur from an improper ***. They include, but are not

limited to fracture of the teeth, fracture of the porcelain, loosened of the teeth in the bone, bone

loss around the teeth, infection, jaw pain, pain in the facial muscles, neck pain, shoulder pain,

inability to eat or speak properly, pain in the teeth, etc. The patient already relates that she is

having several of the symptoms. As you can see, if left untreated, the patient's current condition

can lead to an endless amount of dental problems.

Unfortunately, the solution to the problem is not a simple one, especially when the *** is so

incorrect. The only solution the patient has is to start from the beginning and redo the improper

dentistry that was done. in other words to replace all the crowns in her mouth. That is the only

way that a proper *** could be established. I would estimate that the time necessary to correct

the dentistry would be a3 to 4 month time frame and would cost approximately 35,000. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Sincerely,

Michael S. Rammer D.D.S.

Botched Dentistry Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo - Implant and Cosmetics Solutions - San Jose Costa Rica

Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo Calvo was the Dentist at Implant and Cosmetics Solutions.He broke my tooth causing 3 root canals to be preformed while in his care.

He left me with half of my teeth open margin ( The crowns are popped off my teeth ) and he screwed up my *** so badly that I now suffer from severe TMJ, can't eat or speak properly and so on. The cost to fix my *** alone is $35,000 ( which I don't have ) plus thousands more for for additional work that I need because of this crook. Every American specialist I've seen has told me that all of my teeth will start falling out because of all the open margins. False teeth are not an affordable option for me because I have a seizure disorder and dentures can slip during a seizure and I could choke to death.

Therefore, no American Dentist will do it. I was threatened and almost charged with a felony for complaing publically about being butchered abroad. ( no freedom of speach in Costa Rica). It is a felony to speak against the reputation of any Costa Rican citizen before or unless they have first been found guilty in a costa Rican court of law.

My Costa Rican attorney explained that it would take 4 years in their courts to prosecute Doctor Coto and he would just bribe an offical and make the case go away long before that. As for me, my name is Kimberly and I am an American. I had to flee that country immediately before I was arrested, charged with a felony and locked up in a Costa Rican prison for complaining publicallly about being butchered by Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo. When I went to Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo his companies name was High Tech Dental Clinic.

Since then, he has changed the business name to "Implant and Cosmetics Solutions ". I am quite sure he will continue to change his business name over and over in his attempt to fool the American and Canadian public. Please, before you or anyone you love flocks abroad for any less expensive medical and or dentistry, watch any of my brief u-tbe video's on my personal nightmare with doctor Alberto Coto Calvo.

Each and every video on my u-tbe channel is on my personal nightmare with him.My u-tube channel is Kimberly4064 and you can take your pick of any of the 3 video's or my first medical tourism video can be found at http://kimberly4064.blogspot.com or http://youtu.be/lgweBSQlR54

Dr Coto is a fraud and a thief.He is some halfwit masquerading as a real dentist.

He also did NOT graduate from the University of Miami (as he claims on his website), he simply attended ONE class there. My wife was a recent victim of his; he severed a muscle below her nose during a labial frenectomy, thus ruining her smile and creating extra 'slack' in her face. When we arrived at his office the lights were off, no one was in the reception area, and the equipment was dusty and noticeably outdated. We had been assured this was a quick and easy procedure, yet Dr Coto did a totally botched job.

My wife has become severly depressed that her face will 'never be the same again.' We emailed Dr Coto and he recommended plastic surgery (he actually said this in an email!!!). We are expecting to spend upwards of $10,000 USD to hopefully repair his negligent mal-practice. DR COTO SHOULD HAVE HIS LICENSE AND PRACTICE REVOKED!!!

Unfortunately Costa Rican laws protect these ignorant 'dentists' from all of this nonsense, and there is no hope of being compensated for such awful 'work.' If you are considering medical tourism in Costa Rica I highly suggest you reconsider.Shame on you Dr Coto.

PAID FOR A PROSTHODONTIST, GOT A SHOEMAKER.I to went to Costa Rica for dental work Feb-19-13.

Had all lower crowns and a 3 part bridge replaced. This was to open ***. Had no previous pain . Dr.

Julian Conejo at Colina dental in Escazu . Put in the wrong abutments and charged me for gold I didn't receive. His dad did a root canal on # 30 which didn't have any pain prior . # 31, had pain for months because crown wasn't placed properly.

6 lower incisors still sensitive . *** off. Paid 7,800.00. I had to replace a bridge which he charged me 3,200.00 for .In the states it cost me 2,500.00.

to have this done right.

They offered me 800+ dollars to go away which I did not accept. I have contacted pro-med They are totally in bed with the dentist. I contacted the consular at the embassy , they have this clinic on their list of dentists.Tried to contact OIJ, BBB, Consumer protection , no response as yet. These people practice with impunity .

I intend to fight this , If you experienced same treatment, give me a call 785-266-8976 as a group , maybe a stop of this practice is achievable.

All Costa Rica seems to care about is getting your money and too bad if you get ripped off.Robert

I went to dr coto last year for teeth work since I could not afford the same care in the US. He was very nice and professional but the work done was very poor. After only 8 months my crowns broke and two dentists told me that the rest of my crowns are poorly done. One of the implant failed.

Please save your money and do not go to Costa Rica or any South America country for teeth work or implants. They also have inferior technology and I was always scared of their poor sterilization method. Stay away from dr coto and his office if you want to avoid infections ( even AIDS!) and bad teeth work!

If you can't afford dentists in the US, maybe you have a dental school close by, they have affordable prices, maybe your dentist offers care credit or if you really want to go in a foreign country, I recommend any East European country. By not Costa Rica and especially NOT dr Alberto Coto.

She was NEVER A PATIENT OF IMPLANT AND COSMETICS SOLUTIONS this is a LIE as a lot of another lies in the report.

Here you have a bunch of review of happy patients at Implant and Cosmetics Solutions and we have more REAL PATIENTS OF IMPLANT AND COSMETICS SOLUTIONS POSTING GOOD REVIEWS.

Dr. Alberto Coto Calvo was working in a partnership at High Tech Dental Clinic but now the partnership has ended because he wants to improve his work even more with a better building in a better location and with top of the line technology as the CAD-CAM machine so now he has his own Dental Clinic Implant and Cosmetics Solutions in San Jose Downtown. And he wants to share some of the reviews of his patients with all the people interested in travel to Costa Rica for dental treatment.

Also to respond to the comment of Kluce6, if you were at our place we will take care of you 24/7 since we have 2 drivers how will pick you up at the airport and take you back and transport you from and to the appointments at every appointment even will take you to do shoppings if you need it.

"Molar Root Canal"

Were you pleased with the treatment?

The first day I contacted the clinic I received a phone call right away from Dr.Coto which was nice. The appointment went extremely smoothly. I had two molar root canals done with crowns and I could not believe how painless it was. The entire staff was professional and very friendly. I would recommend Implant & Cosmetic Solutions to all my friends and family. Absolutely a wonderful experience for a great price and I would definitely visit again if I needed to!

"Implants Dentists"

Were you pleased with the treatment?

I am so happy with Dr Alberto Coto. When I had my teeth cleaned in WPB Florida my dentist was so impressed he told me that my Implant work is Text Book perfect. (never to tell his wife he is going to recommend him if someone has to be on a budget.) In the states I was quoted $15,000.00 Dr. Coto charged under $3, and the B&B is awesome also. This is the friendly, combined with professional experience you can ever get. I love you Dr Coto!

"Implant "

Were you pleased with the treatment?

I contacted this clinic because I needed an implant and my husband and I were planning a trip to Costa Rica anyway. I got an appointment for the day I arrived and was picked up at the airport. The dental visit was very professional, thorough and painless.I had no complications and will probably go back for the crown. My husband had several crowns made for worn down front teeth. He was also very pleased with the care and the results, as well as the price.

"Dr. Coto is EXCELLENT"

Were you pleased with the treatment?

Dr. Coto is EXCELLENT. I have had work done in Central America on several occasions and Dr. Coto is the best dentist I have seen. I was a little nervous after four crowns because my pain persisted, but it turned out to be another tooth where the nerve started to cause problems. I went to an American dentist who CONFIRMED that my "crowns were excellent, the margins are great, and they're beautiful." I didn't tell the dentist where I had them done because I wanted his honest opinion. He said they're excellent. It was literally one-fourth of the price of what another US dentist was asking. I highly recommend him.

"Full mouth reconstruction"

Were you pleased with the treatment?

I am a 64 yr. old male that was losing ability to chew my food. I went to Dr. Coto's clinic to see what could be done. I am happy to report that I now have a full mouth of beautiful teeth, thanks to Dr. Coto and his team of professionals. As far as I am concern Dr. Coto is the best implantologist in the world. In my mind he is a Demi-God. I could not be more satisfied, and the price was right! One more thing, the day before I was flying out, Dr. Coto and his team worked till 5:30 in the morning to get the work finish, so I would'nt miss my flight home. Outstanding dedication. Thank you Dr. Coto. I love you.

"he seemed very trustworthy"

Were you pleased with the treatment?

The dentist filled 6 cavities, and replaced one metal filling for $40 each and $40 for a great cleaning with the checkup, xray and cab ride from the airport all free. He also advised me not the get the whitening as my teeth weren't that stained and said 3 of the cavities didn't need to filled for another year, so he seemed very trustworthy and the prices were exactly what he quoted me. He even called me as did his employee in texas to discuss any questions :D

PLEASE NOT BELIEVE THE LIES OF THIS LADY.

Dentist Alberto Coto from Costa Rica is a LIAR, a hypocrite and a ***! People don't need shopping and drivers ***! They came to you in hope you will restore their teeth at a cheaper price as they cannot afford treatment at home,instead you destroyed their life.

I came to you from Germany for two implants,one bridge and a few crowns. Before I even got in the plane the bridge broke and two days later the crowns fell. One of the implants was seriously infected and I needed to take antibiotics for one month. There are precarious hygienic conditions in his office. When I came back to you since you said you guarantee your work, you asked me $3000 extra to fix the crowns and put another implant.

Please avoid dr Coto from Costa Rica.
