Dentists in Lima

Postby Guest » Thu Sep 09, 2010 3:05 pm

If you know of a good dentist in Peru, we’d like to know about it. What kind of work did you have done? Does this dentist have a specialty? How long have you been seeing this dentist? Were the prices reasonable? Do they speak English or any other language apart from Spanish? Where are their offices located?

District of Magdalena

I'd like to recommend the dentist that our family has been using for over ten years. Dr. Luis Caffo.

Jiron Castillo 751, oficina 304,
Magdalena,
(centro comercial Santa Patricia.)
263-1805

We have had experience with teeth cleaning, whitening, fillings and regular checkups. We have always found Dr. Caffo to be gentle in his touch, and honest with his dealings. His office isn't fancy, but it's adequate. He has basic English. The neighborhood is safe, and I have never had a problem finding supervised parking on the street. We live in Miraflores, so the only problem is the distance, as it takes us half an hour to drive there.

We have used Dr. Daniel Vizarraga Robles in Surquillo. He performed a root canal for me, and did cavity filling for my niece. It was her first major experience with a dentist (at 10 years old) and she was very scared, but Dr. Vizarraga put her very much at ease.

Calle Albert Einstein 254
Urb. la Calera de Monterrico
(The street is at block 22 of Angamos Este, across from the Plaza Vea at the corner before the Primax gas station)

It is a residential area, near a large school and in my opinion is safe. We lived in this area for several years and always felt secure there. We've parked our car on the street while we were in his office with out problem, but you can always park your car at Plaza Vea about 4 blocks away (for a couple soles an hour) if you prefer. His office is an upper floor of his home, with a separate entrance - you will need to go up a couple flights of narrow, steep stairs. It's a small office, but very clean and with fairly up to date equipment.

Best Dentist in Lima - Peru.
I would like to recommend the Dentist Dr. ELSA ROSA FAJARDO. She is the best dentist I have ever know. She has studied and worked in Europe many years, but now she has her dental office in Lima - Peru.
I visited different dentists in U.S.A. and CANADA, where I live now, but nowhere have I found a dentist like Dr. Elsa Fajardo.
This recommendation is for people who are looking and are tired of trying to find a good dentist!
She speaks English, Spanish and German.
Dr. ELSA ROSA FAJARDO
Address: Av. Raul Ferrero 1484 La Molina - Lima 12 - Peru
Telephone Number: (+511) 343 7549

I have had great service from Dr. Rosario Campos in LaMolina. She is fluent in English and graduated from University of Bristol in Bristol, England UK. She is aslo an Orhtodontist.

Her prices are very reasonable.

I first went to her in July 2009 at her LaMolina Dental Clinic. She does everything from cleaning, fillings, root canals, braces and more.

Her web site is http://www.LimaPeruDentist.com or http://www.LimaDentista.com

I commented on this dental group in the forum and I apologize. I should have thought of services. I was so pleased with my completed services and I had just been reading some discussions on poor customer services and lack of Peruvian skills and work ethic I just put it in the discussion

First let me say I researched dentist in the US and here in Peru. Travel and Smile.net seemed the place to go here in Lima. Dentists in the US were extraordinarly expensive and I couldn't find anything to reccomend them over Enrique Yuen and his staff. I had a full upper dental implant, a root canal which I have to say terrified me, two crowns, and veneer. I am not finished :D . It was not easy but what it was, was professional and every staff member from Monica who greets you at the office to both Erique and Daniel along with very professional support staff were excellent. Most staff spoke english and the ones who did not made themselves understood. I feel some responsibility to understand something, I am in Peru for God sake!

I have not mentions the thousands of dollars that I saved at Travel and Smile because honestly it made me consider it but in all honesty this is the place I would come for dental work regardless of the cost.

I'll second sanbartoloian's opinion. The service is excellent, very modern, and matter of fact, it was better than any service I've had in the states. Everyone is fluent in English. The pricing is expensive by Peruvian standards but not by USA standards.

I think I even met sanbartoloian's wife in the waiting room! Small world.

Hi
I have to back up both Sanbartolian and Sabaustin. Dr. Enrique Yuen and his staff are very pleasant and have more modern equipment than any other Dentist I ever went to. I do not like dental pain but Dr. Enrique pulled my Molar did a root canal and made a cap on the spot WITHOUT pain. I recommend them highly. He and most of his staff speak perfect English.

Just a follow-up, I went to my dentist here in the US, KY, Louisville for my usual cleaning and exam. The dentist who was up to 35,000 before I decided to have the work in Peru did not say much but the tech who cleaned my teeth was in a clinic who did implants and she said the work I had done would have been about 50,000 dollar here in Louisville.

It's been about 4 months now since my work was done and it is 1st time I have had a palate in 35 years. I can't begin to thank Enrique and his team. I actully sent his receptionist a Harley shirtfor Louisville just for being so nice in the process. I am looking forward to going back in Nov. Honest to God, I am looking forward to going to a dentist.

Located in CORPAC, SAN ISIDRO

My dentist (and friend) is Valeria Villaran. She's experienced and trustworthy. Her English is perfect and more importantly, her office is nice and clean with new instruments. It's like being in a US dentist office which for me is super important. I've had two crowns replaced, general cleaning and whitening done with her. She's also great about being honest and telling you what is priority to get fixed and what can wait until later.

Her details:

Hi there,
There are great recommendations here, but I thought I would add one more.
Before I arrived in Lima I contacted Dr. Patricio Quevedo from their website, http://www.vamosdental.com/index.htm, because a filling I had was cracked and I was told it needed to be replaced with an Onlay soon before further damage was done. I did not want to pay the extremely high prices of my NYC dentist without insurance, so I decided to head down to South America for a visit and to get my tooth repaired here. This was such a good decision - I saved lots of money and had a great experience.
Since I began inquiring with the dental practice, Dr. Patricio has been very responsive, helpful and he speaks/writes English well, I later learned he also speaks French. He was always very honest about pricing and my options.
Once I arrived for my treatment, the service was excellent...better than any service I had received in the US. Additionally, he was able to simply replace the filling and avoid the more costly Onlay treatment. The pricing is much more affordable than treatments in the US, but the fact that he offered a less expensive, but equally effective treatment really impressed me. Additionally, he provided advice about cavities I had and if they needed to be treated now or could wait a while.
Here is his contact information:

I have been coming to Peru for several years now and have seen 4 different dentists all highly recommended on this list and can say Peru Dental is the best dental office I have been to. If you go you will see for yourself. First, there is a no pressure and non nagging approach with I appreciated as well as immediate response back when I initially emailed for prices. They were extremely professional, and efficient from start to finish from making the appt, to the office visit/ consultation and work. The office was immaculate, perfectly clean, modern, up to date. even more than any US dentist office I have been too. I expected to have the dentist list a number of other problems and was a little paranoid about having them squeeze extra services in, but they were very honest, up front. I even considered getting cosmetic things done but they insisted it really wasnt necessary even though they would financially benefit from it! Very honest doctors! They even sent all my records to me within a few hours without any delays.

Like I said, I have been to 3 other dentists in lima and really say the whole experience from start to finish exceeded my expectations!

This early morning, having a good breackfast with warm, crispy rolls, the bread appeared to be to crispy!
Suddenly a large piece (old filling) of one of my front teeth came loose!!
Imagine: at the beginning of the weekend: total panic :cry:

The prospect to go out with a new friend (and she has a really wonderfull set of teeth) with a mouth, unable to smile without showing a large hole was just horrible. :oops:

As always in such circumstances I start searching the ExpatPeru Forum to find a dentist in Miraflores recommended by some of you.

From the reviews I selected Dr. Carlos Cueva and called him around nine. Without any hesitation he made an appointment for 12.00hrs.
When I came a little bit before 12, he already was there and received me very friendly.
To make a long story short: he replaced the filling in a very efficient and qualified way and now I'm :lol: smiling :lol: again and my weekend saved!

Dr. Carlos Cueva. He speaks perfect english. cell phone is 991216060. 319 Schell avenue, suite 606, miraflores, Lima

I'd like to second (or third, or fourth....) the recommendations given for Peru Dental. After deciding to relocate to Peru from the states, it was an easy decision to get my (much neglected) dental work done in Peru, taking advantage of the price differences.

After much research I decided on Peru Dental. I was looking for a dentist with modern facilities and where my (then) lacking Spanish wouldn't be a barrier to communicating my needs. My first contact was with (English speaking) office manager Lloyd, who clearly and promptly answered all of my questions and helped arrange my travel plans. After my initial consultation with Dr. Yuen (who, along with the other doctors, speaks flawless English) we created a treatment plan. Being that several old metal fillings from childhood were falling out, I knew I was going to need extensive work, thinking I was looking at several dental implants. Turns out I only needed one implant. Never once did I feel pressure to 'upgrade' or that I was being sold services I didn't need. When I expressed a desire to save a few Soles, Lloyd and Dr. Yuen worked with me to come up with a revised treatment plan (I wound up changing my mind and sticking to the original plan).

After 11 porcelain, 3D CAD/CAM restorations, periodontal work, 3 root canals, and surgery for a crown over implant, I experienced no pain. The worse part was a slight discomfort when receiving post-surgery stitches. Lloyd, and all four doctors who treated me, clearly explained everything, set my mind at ease, and provided pain free treatment. The entire staff, from the receptionist, dental assistants, Lloyd, and the doctors, are helpful and professional. In a country not known for exemplary customer service, Peru Dental offered better customer service than I received from the last dentist I saw in the states where it took months for my initial consultation and would have taken another few months to begin treatment.

I suddenly find myself having to return to Lima from Arequipa on short notice and hoped to schedule my final appointment for the crown over implant at the same time. Lloyd was very helpful in squeezing me in on such short notice, even though they are very busy due to a recent television feature on Peru Dental. I usually only write reviews when I have had a bad experience, but Peru Dental made what would normally be dread inducing, into an overall positive experience; I can't recommend Peru Dental enough.

I want to recommend my dentist - Dayana Anderson. Her office is near Jockey Plaza Mall and everything is clean, new, and professional. Also, the prices are great, only 40 soles to fill a cavity. She speaks English quite well (we met because she's my English student) and is friendly and very professional. She currently teaching dental surgery at a good university and acquiring skills for all sorts of cosmetic dentistry - those things make a big difference!

So try Dayana Anderson Gutiérrez, Rpm # 949828156

I was born in Lima but currently live in Sydney, Australia.Thought to share about a great Dental Clinic I have found in Lima.

I was checking online for a dentist in Peru and decided to email Peru Dental. I was very impressed with their promptness and excellent customer service. I have communicated with them in English and Spanish.

When I visited Peru Dental for the first time -August 2013- I was delighted to see that the clinic and services available were as described on their website.

The level of professionalism and care I received from Dr. Enrique Yuen and his team of specialists exceeded by expectations.

I received treatment for a Root Canal and 2 Cerec Crowns as well as evaluation of my current TMJ condition by one of the specialists.

At all times, doctors and staff were very caring and willing to listen to my concerns.

It is very encouraging for me to have found a Dental Clinic -in my country- with a group of excellent professionals that truly care about their patients not just about how much they can get out of them.

I highly recommend Peru Dental - you will not be disappointed.


Pricing: Very competitive
Office located at: 355 Monterrey St. 4th Floor, Chacarilla. Lima, Peru.

Implant Dentistry in Lima, Peru

Postby yoelroy » Fri Jan 03, 2014 12:14 am

My wife is from Peru and is currently visiting her family in Lima. We've been trying to find a comprehensive solution to her dental concerns for some time. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with Dr. Enrique Yuen at Peru Dental in terms of full-arch restorations___ specifically speaking, a fixed all-on-4 or all-on-six. Any information/feedback that you would be willing to share would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I can recommend an excellent Dental Clinic in Lima - it is The Dental Design Clinic. I had a near full mouth reconstruction at the clinic and I am extremely happy with the results. The same treatment would have cost six times more in Australia. The clinic is in Miraflores, so very convenient for visitors and most expats. It is very modern and all the staff are very professional and spoke perfect English, and one even speaks German. See their website http://www.thedentaldesignclinic.com for more information. If you need dental treatment, its definitely worth going and asking for a quote.

Best regards everyone!

I had a great experience with Dr. Giselle Del Carpio Robles. Her clinic is in Surco (about a 12/s taxi ride from Miraflores). I'm a total wimp when it comes to dental pain, so Dr.Robles numbed me to the cleaning.

The prices she charges are Peruvian prices, not "gringo prices". She speaks English very well and has studied in USA.

My last dental experience in Peru was awful, so I was really nervous about going back to the dentist, but am so glad that I went to her clinic.

I recently moved to Lima and was looking for a good dentist. Odontodigital is the best dental clinic I've been to, and I've gone through a few while living in different countries.The staff are really friendly. They always make you feel like you're the only patient, even when they are really busy or your appointment runs over time. The clinic itself is very clean and it has a relaxing atmosphere unlike other places, which make you feel like you are about to be tortured in an interrogation room. I am a patient of Dr. Cueva and would totally recommend him. The prices they charges are Peruvian prices. Dr. Cueva speaking English very well. Cellphone 991216060 They are located in 319 schell avenue, suite 606, Miraflores. www.odontodigital.com

Full disclosure:

I work at http://WWW.PERUDENTAL.COM with Dr Enrique Yuen where we offer transparent pricing and state of the art dental care.

In fact, with on-site 3D x-rays, you can be sure of a 100% accurate diagnosis first time and with 6 years experience using 3D CAD CAM technology for restorations, you can have a new crown, veneer, bridge or inlay (an inlay is a type of 3/4 crown or replacement filling with ceramic, not resin) in less than an hour with no second (or third!)appointment, no messy impressions, and no more messing about.

See it in action, here:

Went to a festival here in Peru and I decided to buy some Peruvian lollipops from the store for the whole family to enjoy as we watched the cultural dancing. :D I bit into my lollipop and my white filling came out. :| Really didnt like going around with a big chip in my teeth especially because I was planning on meeting up with some friends at the bar.
Decided to give Dr.Carlos Cueva a call! He was very nice and spoke perfect english. He had even better service than our dentist in the US and at a much cheaper price. Called him and he scheduled me an appointmnet for later in the day. Came in got my fillings done and the dental office was family friendly as well! As I got my fillings done, my children watched TV while my wife read the american magazines :lol: .

Definitely reccomend Dr.Cueva, perfect service, cheap, clean office, great dentist.
