    All of the dentists in Sonria Dental are yearly certified by the American Dental Association. One does not deal with just one dentist. For every aspect of the procedure(s) they bring in a specialist to the office specific for your needs. For my work there were either 2 or 3 specialists involved beyond my dentist. Why do I say 2 or 3? I wasn't really able to tell as explained in the "side story" below.

    Dear Dr. Gonzalez, I am so excited that I came to you and Sonria Dental Boutique for my FULL mouth restoration. Your gentle, kind and thoroughly professional care leaves me speechless! Your focus and concentration level was most duly noted from the first appointment and carried through the entire process. Your methodical approach to my needs, 28 crowns, total bite overhaul, dimensions, everything was precisely calculated and carried through. I truly feel blessed with my decision to come to Sonria and Costa Rica for my dental work. Dr. Gonzalez, I cannot thank you enough and your country is GORGEOUS!

    My husband and I came to Sonria Dental Boutique for bridge and crowns work. I researched many dental clinic in Costa Rica. We chose Sonria for the personalized care and her attention to detail. The finished result for both of us were above our expectations. Thank you Dr. Oriana and your caring staff, a great experience. We can smile with confidence again. Sincerely,
  • Tanya-Ryan-Testimonial-Sonria-Dental-Boutique
    When I came to Dr. Gonzalez I was ashamed of my smile. I was so insecure, I hated talking to people, and was afraid to smile. I was also very afraid to have any work done to fix it. The moment I entered her office that all changed. Her pleasant, reassuring presence took all the anxiety away. The work she did is beyond amazing & more then I could have ever dreamed for. Dr. Gonzalez has not only given me my smile back; she has brought my life back. Thank You
  • Sonria Dental Boutique Testimonial 05
    Dear Dr. Oriana Gonzalez, I cannot wait to go to the dentist! Truly, this is a phrase I did not think I would ever have in my vocabulary. But today it is a true statement after meeting you. I am so happy with all the services performed at Sonria Dental Boutique. Sonria Dental Boutique provided exceptional services to my husband and me from the time we landed in Costa Rica from Houston, Texas. You were able to explain the procedures of the sinus lift and grafting, and using fibrin to speed the healing process. In addition, we agreed to the replacement of my current bridge, replacement of old crowns and restoration of a tooth which, only treated in February, already lost its composite and was the source of a lot of pain. All the best,
  • Sonria Dental Boutique Testimonial 04
    Dr. González, I wanted to thank you for a wonderful dental experience. Ever since I was a kid I have dreaded going to the dentist. The teeth cleaning and whiting Session I had at Sonria Dental Boutique was the most comfortable dental experience I have ever had. From the moment I walked through the door and you greeted me I felt relaxed. The design of reception area along with the lighting and artwork on the wall set me at ease. The most unnerving thing about dentist visits for me is the sound the tools make, even just for a cleaning. Luckily for me you had thought about this as well, with headphones and a T.V. screen to keep my ears and mind occupied while you worked. Thank you for a wonderful experience,

    I had the best experience at Sonria Dental Boutique, everything was perfect. Dr. Oriana is amazing, she is gentle, professional and thorough and never rushes to get the work done quickly. I was comfortable with the headphones and watching TV on the ceiling while she worked. The warm neck pillow and blanket ensured I was comfortable. Dr. Ernesto was very professional and did a great job with my implants. You can tell that both doctors enjoy their work and want to make sure that your teeth are perfect. I loved the fact that I was the only patient here while they were treating me and was the center of attention. The detail with my teeth is amazing!! My teeth look gorgeous!!! I recommend Sonria Dental Boutique to all the people I meet here and I will continue to do it when I get back to the US. Thank you so much!! Debra Mulhollen – Virginia

    Sonria Dental Clinic was a great choice for me to get some dental work done. Dr. Oriana was awesome, she explains each process to me, she had the gentlest hands. I’m so thankful I choose this establishment. I came in on Monday and again on Thursday and the outcome was just AWESOME!!! I would recommend everyone to choose Sonria Dental Clinic. This was my first visit to Costa Rica and it was with the friendliest people. I will tell all my friends and family to come. Thank you so much Dr. Oriana! Cinthia Sherrod

    The care I’ve received at Sonria Dental Clinic is superior to any I’ve visited in Florida. I felt like a valued patient. This is in comparison to three dentist in a row (only two months apart) who treated me like a number and did dental procedures that caused me to develop serious dental issues. I am so glad that I found Dr. Gonzalez and her Associates. For the first time in years I feel as though I am getting the help with my dental problems that I need. I am impressed with Dr. Gonzalez, She has a welcome attention to detail. She worked and worked until she got my crowns perfect. And that is really nice.” I also need to mention the outstanding coordination of services and transportation provided. I will highly recommend anyone that asks about dentists in Costa Rica and will refer them here.

Great decision to come here! My husband and I came to finish implant and bridge and crown work. We were met at the airport, driven to all our appointments, and treated by very professional highly skilled staff. The clinic was pristine with state of the art facilities. The first visit was to uncover implants and take impressions for a bridge. We had 3 days in between to go on excursions and explore Costa Rica,. We went back to have the work completed and they spent hours making sure it was right before we left. Not only did we save thousands of dollars but it was a wonderful experience overall. Thank you!

My wife, Kathy, and I had a great experience with all the Sonria Dental Clinic staff starting in July, 2021 and finishing up in January, 2022. I have had my 2 implant bridge in place for about 2 weeks now and it feels great. I feel wearing the night guard when I sleep has really been helpful as well since I have some tough bite issues. Kathy had two implants and a root canal and her implants feel great and natural as well. Plus the care and attention all the staff at Sonria accorded to us was incredibe and unparallelled. Everyone there feels like family to us now. If we require some extensive dental treatment in the future, we will be sure to return there. Thank-you everyone at Sonria.

Sonria provided the best experience I've ever had with any dental practice, and it's not even close. From the time you land in Costa Rica, they take care of everything.Dr. Oriana and Dr. Carr are extremely kind and professional, and the staff have become like family to me.If you're hesitant because they are in a different country, don't let the distance stop you from giving them a chance. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made.
