In 1995, Meza Dental Care was established to fulfill its patients’ needs, and has been delivering world class service with personalized attention and gentle care ever since.
In 2011, Dr. Alberto Meza, D.D.S. was featured in a showcase of 10 Leaders in Dental & Surgery in Newsweek magazine, but has been providing high quality dental care to dental tourists from the United States for nearly 15 years. Dr. Meza boasts a long resume including having served as a Professor at the Dental Technicians School and also and as a Professor of Prosthodontics at Universidad Latina, Costa Rica.
The Johns Hopkins Dental Group performed its first on-site inspection in March 2012 when Meza Dental Care expressed an interest in working with the patient-focused referral service. There was a formal interview and site inspection conducted by a member of the Accreditation Department, and Vice President of Operations, Howard Siegler, M.B.A., (Johns Hopkins, 2002). Siegler said, “We are very pleased to have the world-renowned Meza Dental Care clinic as one of our Accredited Dental Providers in Costa Rica. Adding dental clinics of Meza’s caliber brings us one step closer to our goal of assuring that 100% of all dental tourists who visit Costa Rica will receive well-above average dental care and return home completely satisfied.”
Dr. Alberto Meza, D.D.S. serves as the Director of Meza Dental Care and practices Cosmetic Dentistry, Implant Dentistry and Oral Rehabilitation. He received Postgraduate Training in Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Dentistry at UCLA. His Associate Dr. Marienella Marin, D.D.S., practices Cosmetic Dentistry and Oral Rehabilitation and also received her Postgraduate Training in Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry at UCLA. Lenna Perez, D.D.S. serves as a General Dentist and received her training at Universidad Latina, Costa Rica.
Siegler said, “the Johns Hopkins Dental Group took on a monumental task when it decided to enter the Dental Tourism Industry in Costa Rica. We began researching the market in 2004, and we had to screen through literally hundreds of dentists and dental clinics to find ones we thought were worthy of Accreditation. It has been and will remain an ongoing task to make sure business practices are in line with what American dental patients expect, and that clinical standards are kept at ADA standards or above.
When we choose to place a dental clinic on our list Dental Providers, we know we are putting or reputation on the line. That is why we remain so selective, and that is why we are always glad to approve a first class operation like Meza and welcome them into our Group.”
