I was having problems with my teeth. I was losing them one by one. And then, spaces were created between my teeth. I went to a dentist for examination and it was really too expensive for me. I talked about my problem to my stepmother in law and she told me about the clinic of Dr Enrique Parra. I went for an exam and I was very satisfied with is diagnostic, is plan and is Price.

Dr. Parra was highly recommended by a friend who has been a repeat patient of his for years, and for good reason: the treatment I received from Dr. Parra and his staff was always most professional and caring, and the hygienic procedures rivaled any I have experienced in my country, the U.S.

My wife and I were looking for a dentist in Costa Rica as we both needed some specific treatments.  We spoke to another Canadian and she recommended Dr. Parra.  She mentioned several of her friends had treatments at his clinic.  We then began to read more about Dr Parra on his very informative website.

I was in your office recently and wanted to let you know that my visit was a welcomed surprise. Dr. Parra is truly gifted with kindness and a remarkable talent and skill to help those of us who don't like visiting a dentist due to the pain normally associated with dental work. He worked with me and my nervousness and was so kind and understanding. I am proud of the work he did for me and look forward to my next visit with Dr Parra so he may finish all my dental work.

Can't thank you enough for the beautiful job you did on my teeth. I am constantly being complimented on my smile. It was amazing to me that you completed my whole mouth in one week which i never expected when i visited you, i expected only partial treatment.

After visiting several dentists in Oregon and doing research on the internet, we decided to combine a vacation with some pretty major dental work we needed done. From grinding my teeth I required restoration (crowns) to my top six front teeth, a molar root canal, a molar crown and three fillings. My wife needed a root canal post plus three crowns. From our very first contact, we were impressed with Dr. Parra's office's quick response and how obliging everyone was to our schedule including coming in on a Saturday! All of the employees we dealt with were truly awesome, especially Dr. Parra, his wife, dental assistant Freydel and Dr. Estrada, as well as the other dental assistants and receptionists.

Dr. Parra's facility is very clean and their professionalism, quality of care and compassion is unsurpassed. My wife has a very small mouth (every dentist tells her the smallest they have ever worked on) and has an extremely low pain threshold; however, everyone....especially Dr. Parra...was so patient and compassionate, and worked hard to make the experience as comfortable as possible. I doubt I'll ever get her to go to another dentist.

I am please to write a review of my experience at Dr. Parra's Clinic. I found the clinic by researching the internet for a dentist in the Liberia area. After reading the testimonials and corresponding through email with his office, I made an appointment to have a broken tooth repaired during our upcoming trip to Costa Rica. All correspondence with the office was promptly answered.

When I arrived at clinic, I was greeted by Susan, who was very kind, efficient, and pleasant to work with. Dr. Parra performed an examination and explained my options for treatment. With his guidance, I decided to proceed with getting 2 crowns to repair the damage. The procedure was pain free and I am very pleased with the results.
Dr. Parra and his staff were very friendly and kind. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone or to return myself if I need any additional dental procedures performed.

Su interés y su pasión hacia mi persona profesionalmente hablando, fue más allá de mis expectativas logrando una satisfacción absoluta.

I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to Dr. Parra and his outstanding staff. I am 35 year old women from Canada who needed a lot of dental/orthodontic work done due to immense grinding. Having planned a trip to Costa Rica merely for vacation, following friend’s testimonials of dental work they had completed, I decide to look into getting my restoration work done there once my ortho was completed. I came across Dr. Parra's website and was thoroughly impressed. Response from his office was always efficient, professional, helpful and informative.

The office staff via phone and email gladly answered questions and addressed any concerns that I had while I was still in Canada. When I finally visited Costa Rica and started the restoration process, the experience did not disappoint. The office was sparkling clean, the staff welcoming, and the dentist, personable. They immediately made me feel comfortable. After consultation with the dentist, I decided to have a filling replaced in addition to the 10 crowns I needed and the upper and lower retainers to compliment my ortho. The experience hands down was better than I ever thought it could be. I never felt like the dentist was trying to push me to get unnecessary work done in order to make a quick buck, in fact, he actually talked me out of replacing a filling and doing 4 veneers because he didn’t feel the work was needed and he didn’t want me to spend money if I didn’t need to.

All said and done, he was right! After three visits, I had a brand new smile that looked amazing and automatically generated a confidence I never had. Though my smile was looked good, the test was going to see my orthodontist back in Canada the day after I returned home. Initially he wasn't keen on me having work done abroad but after he saw the results and tested the fit of the crowns, he was beyond impressed. His direct quote was " you couldn't have gotten a better job done in Canada". This was the icing on the cake. My experience was amazing and I certainly would do it again!

Treatment: Full Mouth Restoration


It has been over six months since Dr. Parra completed my dental treatment. I couldn't be more pleased! I liked how there were fewer and longer appointment times to complete the work. My problems were caused my lack of consciousness care, no doubt. But they were compounded, at times, by poor and inadequate professional care. Cost is not an indication of quality. Dr Parra's treatment was a fraction of the cost that I was quoted in the States. I took my granddaughter, spent 3wks in CR and the total cost was half what the cost would be here.

In fact after the initial exam, Dr Parra and I together decided on a plan that was less than his original estimate! But getting something done cheaply doesn't mean it is a good value. Value is good price and good work. I felt the whole time that everyone in the office - - from the assistants to lab workers to Dr Parra himself were trying to do the best job for me that they could. That is really all you can ask from anyone. Coupled with the skills they have, it is a pretty unbeatable situation for the patient.

After the final day of placement and fitting, I didn't even need the appointment the next day for "touch up" adjustments. That probably is the exception but that was my experience. After these several months, still no problems. I appreciate the care and would recommend Dr Parra's service to anyone. Feel free to use this note and my pictures anyway you choose. If you have potential patients that would like to contact me directly, give them my email address. Pura Vida.......... Russell

I want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Parra for all the work he completed on my teeth. I had some work done in February 2010 in the US. This dentist ground down my front 6 teeth and capped them. From that time until early 2013 I had to have 4 root canals. I knew that I had serious problems. I had the opportunity to visit Costa Rica and found out about Dr Parra.

Treatment: Dental Implants


We had an easy trip back, although it was rough to return to 'real life' after two weeks of warmth and relaxation. We are both so pleased with his teeth. Truly, I could not have imagined things going as well as they did. People are amazed when they hear how much work you did and that Alec didn't experience any severe pain. We have given your contact information out to several people, including a co-worker of Alec's named Karen. Hopefully she will be in touch with you soon. I keep telling Alec he looks like he's a handsome guy from a toothpaste commercial. His facial expressions are different now because he doesn't have to worry about hiding his teeth when he smiles.

He probably didn't mention this, but you should know that fixing his teeth was much more than just improving the look of his smile. All of the men on his father's side of the family have died around age 52 from heart attacks. We knew we had to get his teeth fixed because the bacteria entering his blood stream from his decaying teeth created a serious health risk. You gave him back his self confidence, but more importantly helped his heart. We are so incredibly grateful to you and your team. If you ever need an additional testimonial for your website, please let us know. I would be more than happy to write about our experience.

Thank you so much!

I found Dr. Parra's clinic through my research on the internet before leaving for Costa Rica. I looked at the fotos and read all of the claims made on his web site, and found them all to be truthful.

I especially want to compliment Dr. Parra's assistant Ericka. She never failed to cheerfully answer my questions and help me in every way. Communication within his office staff and Dr. Parra was excellent. No one could be more efficient and speedy in answering emails than she has been during my treatment.

All in all this has been an excellent experience for me. All procedures done quickly and efficiently, and if any problems arouse they were handled quickly also.

I am very happy that Dr. Parra handled my dental implants. Thank you very much to Dr. Parra and his staff for excellent work,
