As with other professional activities, the dental services that we provide in Costa Rica are governed by minimum amounts of mandatory compliance.
Including, the members of the College of Dental Surgeons are empowered to establish amounts greater than those set in a rate authorized by law, according to the operating costs of each clinic and the degree of specialty of the professional who provides the service.
The tariff is intended to avoid unfair competition, and applies to all institutions, companies, societies, foundations, the National Insurance Institute (INS) and non-state insurers, and to all dentists.
Since the tariff has the objective of avoiding unfair competition, the fixing of prices for dental treatments below the minimum tariffs, in Costa Rica, is considered a violation of the School’s Code of Ethics and, whoever commits it, is exposed to a penalty.
Dental services fall into a wide variety of categories, including check-ups (such as first-time and post-treatment visits), radiology, operative, endodontics, prosthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, whitening and surgery.
Just as an example, we mention the minimum fees established by the College of Dental Surgeons, in 2018, for some of the treatments that dentists attend, among our daily activities:
|First Time Consultation||₡34.000|
|Post Treatment Consultation||₡19.000|

However, it is important to note that in Costa Rica Cero Caries, we seek to create an investment fund where through a membership you obtain access to certain dental services at a cheaper price.
We have a proposal to promote a population without cavities, solve situations associated with social impact, promote the offer of online services and facilitate access to dental health at a more accessible price than normal and by financial mathematics to be able to respect the minimum rates of the College of Dental Surgeons of Costa Rica.
