Garita Dentistry Selects Howard Siegler as International Patient Coordinator

San Jose, Costa Rica, February 20, 2017 --( Mario Garita, D.D.S., Founder and Director of The Dental Experience in Costa Rica announced Howard Siegler, Johns Hopkins M.B.A. as the Clinic’s International Patient Coordinator. Dr. Garita said: “We have known Howard for years and were very excited when he approached us about working together. We believe The Dental Experience we offer has long set the bar in Dental Tourism, and that Howard can help us continue in this tradition. We could not be more pleased with our decision to bring him into our Company.

“We want to ensure we communicate as clearly as possible with our patients on all levels, and provide a sense of security that only a U.S. National can convey to his/her own countrymen. I have long been bi-lingual, spent years in the United States studying and practicing dentistry, and I understand North Americans very well, but there is no substitute for a native; someone who understands the idiosyncrasies of the American culture and has a complete command of the English language.”

He continued, “We have treated thousands of Dental Tourists over the past two decades and witnessed steady growth all along, but we believe the industry may soon begin to grow exponentially. We want to be well prepared for when that time comes. We know our Customers and Target Market very well, and we have the talent, equipment, facilities and experience required to handle nearly every dental case imaginable. Howard will ensure our Customer Service keeps pace with our clinical performance.

“The industry is extremely segmented and offers many classes of service, but unlike other clinics, we have been defined over the years as an upscale Provider by our actions, not by our marketing. Our patients say we are the steak, not the sizzle. We agree. It is the experience we have gained and the steps we have taken over the years to refine our methodologies and clinical and lab processes which together comprise The Dental Experience; and it is that experience that keeps our Patients coming back year after year.”

Siegler added, “After working for several other clinics in Costa Rica and having met most of the Dental Specialists in this marketplace, I can comfortably say that Dr. Garita is at the top of his field and the top of his game; especially when it comes to dental implant surgery and catering to Dental Tourists. There are few people I have met who are as passionate about Dental Tourism as I am, and Dr. Garita is definitely one of them. He lights up when he talks about three things: His Family, Dental Tourism and Dental Surgery; and those are the very same reasons I wanted to work with him.”

Dr. Priscilla Rojas, D.D.S., Dr. Garita’s Founding Partner and wife, said: “Most everyone in the industry knows about the beautiful clinic we just built from ground up with the Dental Tourist in mind. Nothing has been left to chance. Yes, it is all part of The Dental Experience. And Howard will make an excellent addition to our Team and to the 'Experience.'”

While no one can clearly identify the first Dental Tourist who travelled to Costa Rica, there is a very strong chance that Dr. Garita was behind the mask treating that patient. He is often cited as the “Father of the All-on-4 dental implant solution (in Costa Rica)”, one of the clinic’s most popular offerings, but he may actually be the “Father of Dental Tourism” altogether. Siegler said: “When I began working in this industry more than 5 years ago, I would have never imagined I would be working side by side with the best in the business and at the original Dental Tourism clinic in Costa Rica!

“This is an exciting way to start 2017 and I certainly look forward to working with Dr. Garita and his Team. I frequently ask Dentists in Costa Rica whom they would want to have as a surgeon to place their dental implants if the need ever arose, and the response is nearly always 'Dr. Mario Garita.' I am very fortunate to have an opportunity to represent the best Dental Surgeon in Costa Rica and one of the best in the world. It will truly be a great privilege and an honor to serve as the clinic’s front line Representative.”
