Star Dental COVID-19 Message

These are unprecedented times, as the world is facing one of its greatest challenges in recent history. The Costa Rican government has acted quickly and diligently to effectively minimize the Covid 19 pandemic in the country and as a result we have a very low number of cases.

At Star Dental Implant Center, we have suspended clinical operations following the recommendations and directives from our government and international dental associations. As you know, international travel is currently restricted, however we expect governments to ease these restrictions at the beginning of May and allow our patients to start their treatment.

Once the clinic restarts clinical operations, we will be implementing a number of measures such as testing every patient for Covid-19 before beginning treatment and only allowing one patient at a time into the clinic to minimize patient-to-patient contact.

Given the financial impact of the coronavirus fallout on some of our patients, we have launched our “Star Dental 15/15” offer. For limited time, we are offering you a further 15% discount of the total cost of your treatment when a 15% initial deposit is completed during the month of April.

Please let us know if you have any questions – we are here to help. Call us on our toll-free number now!
