Folks from the U.S. and elsewhere who have come to Prisma for dental work and care are always struck by the friendly atmosphere and the flexibility of the dentists and the staff, even on the busiest of days. Drs. Telma and Josef know that their patients are juggling their own schedules and home lives and do everything they can to accommodate that, including fitting in walk-ins.
But patients who need major work — dental implants, oral surgery, crowns, veneers, etc. — generally must schedule their appointments a month in advance. Prisma’s overseas patient coordinator, Tiffany, who does an incredible job of handling patient e-mail and phone calls and also helping with accommodations and travel, advises that April is just about booked up for major dental work.
“I have great May and June dates still, but April is just too tight,” she said today. “Some things can’t be rushed, and great dental work is one of those things.” Tiffany suggests that patients call her directly about the availability of appointments before making other arrangements to come to Costa Rica. She can be reached toll-free from the United States at: 1.866.741.8194. To call the main number in Costa Rica, first dial the international code for the country from which you are calling (011 for the U.S. and Canada) followed by: 506.2291.5151.
Please note that this number just changed slightly, with the addition of a “2.” New dialing rules went into effect in Costa Rica just last week; the extra “2″ signifies that the number is a land line, as opposed to a cell number.
And, as always, Tiffany will be happy to answer your e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This blog was remiss in not noting, in advance, that Prisma had a limited schedule last week because of the Easter holidays. Henceforth, we will keep up with the holiday schedule.
