I went to Doctor Alberto Coto Calvo at High Tech Dental Clinic just outside of San Jose Costa Rica for some dental work and to have veneers put on all of my teeth. This man broke my tooth causing 3 root canals to be preformed while in his care, left me with 10 open margins ( the crowns are popped off my teeth ) and most importantly, he screwed up my bite so badly that I now suffer from severe TMJ, constant pain, can't eat or speak properly etc... The price to fix my bite alone is $35,000 ( which I don't have ) plus thousands more for additional root canals which I still need because of this mans neglegence. This man refuses to refund the small fortune that I paid him and refuses to pay to have my teeth fixed. This story gets much worse.

please, watch this brief video before you or anyone you love leaves your country to get dentistry abroad. I am hoping this will save thousands of people from my same nightmare. Thanks and God Bless...


This man messed up my dentistry horribly and stuck me with the bill to fix it. $35,000 for the bite alone, plus thousands more in additional root canals. He and his staff refuse to help me.
