My previous experiences with Dra. Nunez were great. It's a shame that Dr. Cordero has given myself, and apparently several people, such a bad experience because after my encounter with him, I will never return to this place. I was quoted maximum "X" amount for a wisdom tooth extraction and was charged maximum amount quoted. When I returned for a checkup, he removed the stitches and placed a medication in the extraction site that was supposed to help with healing, and I was charged an additional 40% of what I had already paid. In the same visit, I had pain in another tooth and he gave me a couple novacaine injections and spent 10 minutes grinding down a different tooth, and was charged ANOTHER 40%! I ended up having to pay almost twice as much as they had quoted me. When I confronted him about not being upfront with me about the charges, he got extremely defensive and would hardly let me speak to him. Terrible experience, I feel completely taken advantage of and I will never return.

Impeccable , clean, state of the art beyond their time in precision work👍🏽

I have been a USA citizen visiting for dental work over 10+ years and the work of Dr. Rubeinstein and staff is always evolving. If you have time to spend in San Jose, it's a must visit facility.

BEST dentists ever! The offices are clean, beautiful, they are so professional and such lovely people, too. My husband and I both had implants done by Dr. Josef Cordero. Then 8 months later we went back down to have the crowns installed. They are absolutely gorgeous and a fraction of what it would cost in the states. And we get a vacation out of it, too!!! Costa Rica is a fabulous vacation destination. Prisma also worked good deals with a couple of reasonably priced hotels in the area so expenses were pretty INexpensive. And we flew down there on Delta, non-stop in business class for $1000 a person round trip (we treated ourselves!). Coach was something like $400 round trip. My husband and I highly recommend Prisma Dental for all dental needs. They do it all. They have specialists in every aspect of dentistry. I had a root canal there about three years ago. Again, very reasonably priced compared to the states and the work is exceptional. And because Prisma has their own lab on the premises we got our completed crowns in just three days! Amazing. Wonderful. Quality work, fast and reasonably priced. We love Prisma!

I also agree with Lupe having a terrible experience with "Dr. Josef Cordero P" and dental work done at the Prisma Dental office. A 'mis-constructed' crown made by his staff was put in and infection grew in less than a year that caused me to lose that tooth(and the 'paid for' crown). When confronted, he argued with me that more than a year had passed(before realizing he read my last 'visited' date wrong), then argued that the x-ray I had from another dentist was not 'digital' like his (therefore didn't believe there was an issue) and then he lastly pleaded his innocence by saying, "well we try to do the best we can". He never offered to fix the existing problem (without charging me again) or help rectify the situation or admitting to doing any wrong, even though I witnessed the anger he displayed towards his staff when they delivered the finished "crown" during the process - which he obviously knew wasn't constructed correctly/accurately but was put it in anyway.(unfortunately I didn't understand the seriousness or significance of the anger he showed towards his staff because of my insufficient Spanish, at the time), otherwise I would have spoken-up and had done something about it then. Now I have to 'pay' again and get the procedure involving putting in a "screw" and another new crown. Thanks for nothing, Prisma Dental!

I just came back from Costa Rica, where I had 26 new crowns done by Dr. Rubinstein of Prisma Dental Clinic. I do not believe you can find a better dental clinic in Costa Rica or in the USA. The clinic has its own lab and I saw and met the technicians who made my crowns. Everyone is extremely friendly and professional. I saved many thousands of dollars, including travel expenses, compared to the cost my local dentist quoted me. If I ever need additional dental work, I will certainly return to Dr Rubinstein & Prisma Dental.
