Established more than 30 years ago, Prisma Dental is one of Costa Rica’s largest cosmetic dentistry clinics and draws a large clientele from the US and Canada. Its founders, Dr. Telma Rubinstein and Dr. Josef Cordero, are members of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and received their advanced training in Switzerland and Montreal, Canada, and at the University of Miami.
The clinic employs seven dentists who perform a range of dentistry and restorative work. Prisma’s focus is cosmetic dentistry; however, the clinic provides all types of dental care: routine check-ups, cleaning, veneers, root canals, laser bleaching, full gum treatment, crowns, mercury-free dentistry, resin fillings, amongst other procedures.
Annually Prisma completes around 1500 implants, 110 full mouth restorations and 5200 crowns. A fully-owned and operated onsite laboratory allows doctors and patients to confer with technicians, which mitigates risk of error and speeds work.
Prisma is one of only a handful of international dental clinics inspected and accredited by the American Association for Accreditation for Ambulatory Facilities International (AAAASFI).
