Internet Faves: Dr. Obando and Nova Dental

Dr. Luis Obando and Colleagues 
Nova Dental Clinic

Financial disclosure information:  I have no financial ties to this clinic or any of its dentists.  I am not employed by them in any capacity, nor do I receive commissions or any other form of consideration for any referrals or anything else.  

his is a fairly new clinic in the upscale suburb of Escazu, where Dr. Prada, SONRIA and Dr. Quiros are located.  Dr. Obando is a rising star on both the Topix and TripAdvisor Internet forums.
      His website describes Dr. Obando as a "Specialist in Oral Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry. New York University and University of Chile".  That means he's a specialist in the sense of having obtained graduate-degree level training in a dental specialty.
      I first heard about the clinic while in Costa Rica in Spring 2011. At my hotel, there was a stack of flyers for a new dental clinic called Nova in Escazu.  I was surprised a year later when I started seeing rave reviews on the Internet for this very same clinic and its principal dentist, Dr. Obando.  In a July 2013 trip to Costa Rica, I met a patient of Dr. Obando.  "Euthie" had posted previously on the Topix forum that he was making the pilgrimage to Costa Rica and to Nova Dental despite the misgivings of many of his co-workers about Costa Rica dentistry.  His co-workers need not have worried.  I saw Euthie's new dental work, and they were pretty.  As I wrote on Topix, “Euthie is a real person and he has beautiful front teeth courtesy of Dr. Obando!”  Euthie would later report that some of his once-skeptical co-workers had booked their own flights to Costa Rica and Nova Dental.

      I don't have any first-hand knowledge of this clinic.  I have never met Dr. Obando or the two specialist colleagues listed on his web site: Dr. Paola Truque, endodontics, and Dr. Javier Chavarría, prosthodontics.

Comments welcome.    Is Nova your dental clinic?  If so, consider "paying it forward" by telling us about your experience (hints for posting).

    1. Sorry to hear that. I'm surprised, since Dr. Obando is generally regarded as fairly responsive. What steps did you take with the clinic to resolve this issue? What did the clinic offer to do for you?

  3. I have been going to Dr. Obando for almost 2 years now. He is very professional and I have never left pressured. Highly recommend
