Description

Dr. Darío Chaves graduated in 2002 as DDS from University of Costa Rica and started working at the public health clinic in Jaco as part of a Costa Rican Government’s program. During this time, he realized the necessity of the town to have a dental clinic where the people could find all kind of dental services. Dr. Chaves opened his clinic in 2003 with one goal in mind: Give to the people the best dental services available.

 He is frequently among the first dentist to perfect and use the newer, more advanced techniques and equipment and keeps up-to-date with the latest technologies. This led him to train and implement Computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing also known as CAD/CAM

In 2010 Dr. Chaves began to specialize in digital dentistry taking courses in New York, Germany, and Chicago among many others.

With the implementation of CAD/CAM and due to the great acceptance of this innovative dentistry system, it was necessary to renovate our facilities, so in 2018 this project is carried out so we can provide a better space for our patients.

I booked 10 days in Jaco to consult with Dario Chaves to have my upper crowns improved . He met with me and said he would make temporaries and we'd discuss what chances needed to be made. After almost a full work week, he asked if I could stay another week. 
he never made tempoaries . He just said if I didn't like them he would change them. I really did not like them . He told me to fly back over and he'd replace them. He only replaced half of them . I was going back in December so he said he'd replace them then. He called and told me there was very little he could do. I must pay for another dentist to replace the ones he put that sit to the left of the center of my face. Until then, I have lost my smile .

Summary:
Medical service(s) I needed was: Dental Crowns.
I went for a treatment.
I have received the requested service(s).
I had an appointment.
The service I received was very poor.
I had complications after the treatment.
My health has got worse after receiving the services from the Chaves Dental Clinic.
I don't recommend this clinic!

No written treatment plan, 3visit/5 week verbal plan turned into  7visits/12 weeks, failed to identify perio disease, 3 attempts at implants resulting in immediate infection and failed implants, prescribed antibiotic he was aware I was allergic to resulting in full body hives, dismissed me twice one of the two times he was screaming telling me the job was to big and he can't complete it, first dismissal he took me back only if I paid 5k more, 28 visits most lasting no more than five minuets, 32 prescriptions(6 otc), contracts all oral surgery with dentist that come to his office with there black bag of supplies, no treatment plan no conversation, dismissed me with few upper teeth/implants that are I'll fitting and have to be replaced, bottom teeth extracted damaging bone in four teeth and 5 month pain recovery and need for ridge augmentation and bone graft.  Did not honor his written guarantee. Pd 20k in advance with no reimbursement, pd 17k for flights and lodging with no reimbursement.  Spoke with Dr. Dario Chaves numerous times resulting in empty promises and no follow thru on his part. Cost for rework to be done in US will be 76k.  My  experience was Emotionally,  physically and financially a nightmare. Good luck on your search for a Dental Professional in Costa Rica. I hope I have helped you

I am a resident of the USA and had extensive dental work done by Dr Chaves about 2 years ago. I waited to write a review because I wanted to see how the implants and crowns held up. First let me say that Dr Chaves is a friendly but professional man. I came into his office with horrible implants that were already in place. They were crooked and you could not see my teeth when I spoke because they were too small. Dr. Chaves spent an extensive amount of time researching the type of implants I had and after much ado, he was able to buy the correct tools to remove them. He then made a new set of uppers for me and put crowns on my bottom teeth. He office is state of the art! He even opened just for me on his day off. Well two years later my teeth are still in perfect shape and I couldn’t be happier. It was not cheap to have all this work done, but it was much more reasonable than the prices in the US, especially here in New York. The best part was that I got to vacation in Costa Rica while having all this work done. Thank you Dr Chaves and to your entire staff!
