    Default Dentistas in Puerto Plata o Sosua

    Hello,
    I will appreciate your help! I am in need of a good dentist in Puerto Plata o Sosua. I would like to help a close family member who has no teeth to get dentures. Im Dominican but do not live there. I am a secretary in PR and need a place that is affordable and clean where they will do satisfactory work. Someone referred a dentist in Puerto Plata but this person changed the amounts by 10,000 DOPs when told I am living abroad. I have found a couple of threads on this but they are old. I just want someone clean, competent, affordable and honest that will stick to the quote. Lot looking for fancy work, just basic dentures so this person looks better and is able to chew comfortably. Can anyone help?

    Hola!
    Apreciaria mucho si me ayudan a encontrar un dentista que sea honesto, limpio, no carero y competente. Estoy tratando de ayudar a un familiar que no tiene dientes y vive en Puerto Plata. necesita una dentadura completa. Yo vivo en PR y soy secretaria. Me habian recomendado un dentista pero me subio el precio por 10,000 pesos cuando supo que yo vivo afuera. Solo quiero conseguir un dentista honesto que haga el trabajo a un precio modico/justo y que me de un estimado por escrito. Solo necesitamos dentaduras basicas que ayuden a esta persona a verse mejor y a masticar sus alimentos. La informacion que encontre en DR1 era vieja asi que decidi escribir otra vez.
    Ojala me puedan ayudar!
    Gracias,

    Kelu

    Most popular dentist with ex-pats in Sosua is Wendy Juma. I'm visiting family in the US now so can't give you here phone number, but I'm sure someone else will. You will also find her recommended in threads in the archives.

    Dr Fredy E Lepe, Calle Duarte #75 esq Villanueva, Pto Pta (809 586 6666).

    It is a group practice of five orthodontists with different specialities. I would guess at least one of them will specialise in dentures.

    i use dr leppe too, or to be more precise one of the young dentists working for him, guillermo, cute little thing
    for dentures, implants and more difficult work contact dr leppe himself. he charges a lot but he does a good job. and no gringo prices there

    I know it is far from POP but Sabaneta may be the best place for a Dom dentist at Dom prices. Dr. Gomez is good and fair. On the left past mercado Rodriguez ( Villa Progreso ). It has been awhile but i believe her name is Maria, has 2 chairs and is always busy. There is also an onsite doctor with a full script stamp and farmacia. Sorry i do not have the phone #. It is usually 1st come 1st serve there. I got x-rays, 2 caps pulled and reglued, and a mouth gaurd USD $189 for the grand total of RD2000. Just might be worth the Gua Gua ride for your friend.

    Thank you so much for all your replies. Will definitely check Dr. Lepe and Dr. Juma! I think Sabaneta may be too far....
