I feel like I should call you by Simon, but with the wonderful teeth you created for me I have to continue to address you as Dr. Flikier. I have seen just about everyone i know by this time and the comments have been very positive. Some people have said they do not see a difference, but i do not think i was smiling back then. However, to me this shows how natural my teeth look. I am still amazed. The trips to see you to have my teeth corrected were most likely the best thing that I ever did for myself. Also i feel that people see me differently or act differently toward me in a very positive sense. I am so glad that I made the decision to have you do the work on my mouth even with all the pain (i know that i am a bit wimp, when it comes to pain). I was at a dinner party the other night. Someone came up to me at one point and we were conversing. He said to me after a while that the first thing he noticed about me from accross the room was my beautiful teeth. I had this big smile and just said "thank you"
My last visit to the dentist here in the US revealed a need for extensive dental work to the tune of $8000. With insurance only covering $1500 of the cost. Dr. Flikier's office is as modern a medical facility as any in the US. The welcome was kind and friendly and as I settled into the dentist chair any fears of having medical treatment abroad were taken away by the politeness and obvious expertise of his knowledgeable staff. From the beginning, I was being given the feeling that I was the most important visitor of the day. My dentist was never rushed or distracted. During the time that he saw me, he saw only me. After a thorough examination, the doctor and I agreed upon the procedures needed. Working until 6:30PM, with no hint of being in a hurry after a long day, much of the work was completed and with absolutely no pain. It was an unbeleivable first. After a wondrous few weeks, we returned to make another gentle call to the dentist. During this appointment my sparkling dental bridge was fitted.
I want to thank you and your staff for the great experience I had at your Clinic in San Jose. I was surprised and delighted by the professionalism and high training of your staff, with the quality of your equipment --better than the equipment in Dental Clinics in my area of New Mexico -- and with the personal and caring attitude of everyone in your clinic.
At my Apartotel --Christina --there must have been thirty American men and women there who had come to Costa Rica for dental treatment. From my discussions with them, I gathered they came not only because the prices in Costa Rica are reasonable, but because of the growing awareness that the training and practice is of such high quality.
I especially appreciated the fact that everyone who worked on my teeth --root canals, crowns, plates, extractions --were specialists. Many had received advanced training in the United States at reputable universities. There was no problem in communication, as almost everyone was fluent in English.
Dear Dr. Flikier,
I have been meaning to write to you for several months. Where you are young enough to be my son, i feel like i should call you Simon, but with the wonderful teeth you created for me i have to continue to address you as Dr. Flikier.
I have seen just about everyone i know by this time and the comments have been very positive. Some people have said they do not see a difference, but i do not think i was smiling back then. However, to me this shows how natural my teeth look. Believe me when i say i still look in the mirror every day and think WOW what beautiful teeth.... what a nice smile. Even in the car, i will look in the rear-view mirror just to see my great-looking teeth. I am still amazed. The trips to see you to have my teeth corrected were most likely the best thing that i ever did for myself.
Also i feel that people see me differently or act differently toward me in a very positive sense.
Hello, Dr. Flikier!
I wanted to let you know how very pleased I am with the work you and Dr. Grunhaus have done. My lower teeth are beautiful, and my implant area continues to remain trouble-free. Incidentally, the color is, in fact, perfect,after I got out of there, I went to the mall up the street from your office, bought a mirror, and stared at my teeth for the longest time. I realized then that they are that translucent, luminescent white I’ve always wanted. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and please pass my appreciation on to Dr. Grunhaus and your staff!
