For many year I have gone to Dental Cibao Spa in Santiago.
They are great and I feel very confident with them.
However the drive is very cumbersome.
So I am seeking something closer to home.
Thank you!

I have been to Lepe & Garcia, they are very good, way better than others I’ve used here.

I don't know any on the north coast but I do have an excellent dentist here in Gurabo, Santiago who does a fantastic job for a reasonable price. She's been my dentist here now for the last 8 years. PM me if you would like her contact information.

I have used Monica. I like her and she is good. But now do to all the non Spanish speaking tourists she is hard to get an appointment.

This I started using Hillbilly’s recommendation (remember Hillbilly??? I do, fondly.)

He recommends and now so do I (highly) Wendy Juma in Sosua. She uses WhatsApp for appointments.

Ever since Hillbilly remarried he's been missing in action. LOL

For a number of years I have been going to Dra. Pappaterra's office in Sosua. Routine dental as well as root canal, pin and crown.
She has a specialist come in for the root canal. Her facilities are very modern. If you hit a speed bump in spanish she'll go into english.
Never had a problem with insurance. I'm very impressed with her practice. She's located on the second floor, at the rear, of Pappaterras in Sosua.

Thank you all for your kind responses.
I am sure that all the dentist's mentioned would be excellent.
I decided to go with Dr Fredy Lepe in Puerto Plata.
So far I am very pleased with him and his team.
I wish you all Good Health and Thank You again.

Very good use of the word "cumbersome"!
