World-class healthcare, personalized service and huge cost savings over most U.S. prices are just some of the reasons that thousands of Americans travel to the Caribbean and Latin America each year for their medical and dental needs. Through a special advertising supplement in its October 15 issue, Newsweek aims to bring light to the explosive growth of the medical tourism industry and spotlight innovative healthcare organizations that are catering to the discerning needs of their American patients. Costa Rica Dental Team, an American-owned and operated dental clinic in San Jose, Costa Rica, is proud to announce its participation in Newsweek’s Global Medical Tourism Showcase for pioneering efforts to create a better patient experience for its U.S. medical tourists.
Despite living in the digital age with access to endless amounts of information, many Americans are simply unaware that high-quality, affordable healthcare exists beyond U.S. borders. Newsweek had the foresight to showcase some of the leading international hospitals and healthcare organizations, like Costa Rica Dental Team, that are making a difference in the medical tourism industry. With average savings of 50 to 80 percent of typical U.S. prices on medical and dental procedures, Americans need to be informed and educated about the countless benefits associated with international healthcare and the many excellent destinations available for planning a medical vacation.
“It is exciting to see Newsweek draw attention to the growing popularity of medical and dental tourism,” said Mike Lomax, President of Costa Rica Dental Team. “At Costa Rica Dental Team, our English-speaking dentists have been catering to the discerning needs of our American patients for many years. Most international patients are initially drawn to Costa Rica Dental Team because of our affordable dental services and cutting-edge dental lab. But they return year-after-year with their friends and family because of the quality of our work and because our entire team makes them feel ‘at home’ even while they are away from home.”
Newsweek’s special supplement will also feature an article by Patrick Goodness, CEO of The Goodness Company, a world-renowned marketing agency specializing in global medical tourism. In Goodness’ article entitled, “The Future of American Healthcare Will be Found in the Caribbean and Latin America,” Goodness highlights Costa Rica Dental Team as a leading international dental clinic that is advancing the medical tourism industry. Goodness explains that American patients who have sought dental care internationally often find that the quality of the dental care they receive in foreign clinics meets or exceeds the quality of dental care they have received in the U.S.
Truly attentive, warm and personalized care is what sets these international medical and dental centers apart from their American competitors. From providing personalized concierge service to coordinating all aspects of a patient’s visit, the doctors and staff members of these innovative healthcare organizations pride themselves on understanding the needs of their international patients and providing them with a level of care that rivals any leading medical facility in the U.S.
