From:  Americans Reject U.S. Dental Care in Favor of Lower-Cost Options Overseas – Inside Costa Rica | Inside Costa Rica.

Increasingly, U.S. patients in need of dental care are opting to go overseas where equivalent treatments are a fraction of what they cost back home – a recent report from the overseas experts at reveals. For less than the cost of treatment alone in the United States, a patient can receive high-quality care—and a vacation—abroad.

Dental care costs have been increasing rapidly in the U.S. in recent years. However, only 55% of U.S. residents have dental insurance so almost half are forced to pay out-of-pocket for dental work.

I lost my dental insurance along with my job in the recession and I needed over $2,000 in dental work,” said American Starr Daubenmire in’s report.

“I could either go to my home-town dentist, just 10 minutes from my house, and spend $2,100 in a few hours—or I could get the same work done in Costa Rica and have a 10-day vacation, too, for about $2,600.”
