"I told the patient, “Get me a name of someone you like, I will call them, explain the situation and wire them the money. Cement her teeth. I would do it for your wife."
Funny, Dr. Hall didn't do that for me and my problems began right around the time of this interview. In fact, he did not even return my phone calls.
Dr. Hall is the Ambassador of Love when he is courting you, trying to convince you to come to Dentavac for treatment. And it worked.
My son and I went to Dentavac and, while we did save quite a bit of money, now we both have problems and it looks like we are going to have to pay thousands of dollars to have them repaired IF we can actually find a dentist here in California to do the work. Dr. Hall was right about one thing in this interview - U. S. dentists are quite reluctant to clean up Costa Rican dentist's shoddy work.
At first we were very pleased with the work and, in all fairness, I have to say that the entire staff at Dentavac is very, very nice and the dentists do seem competent - at least in terms of Costa Rican standards.
Within months of getting the work done, one of my implants broke in half and, even though Dr. Hall would not respond to me, one of the nicest dentists in the office, whose name escapes me, sent me an email and suggested I come back to Costa Rica and get it fixed. As much as I appreciated the offer, it wasn't realistic, so I declined. I kept trying to reach Dr. Hall, though, and I was very disappointed in his failure to call me back and in him in general.
Then my son's cap broke. Then my implant broke more.
We have both seen two dentists in California where we live and both of them said they had never seen dental work just fall apart like that. The products they used were inferior and the workmanship appears to have been as well.
Dr. Hall told me all of the same lies he told you in this interview. I almost laughed when I saw that he had said he would back up his work and actually wire money to the American dentist of his patient's choice to repair his clinic's shoddy work because that is simply not true and I know this to be a fact. It happened to me. You really have to hand it to Dr. Hall. He's a good liar if nothing else.
One thing I know for sure is that there are at least three Dentavac patients that I know of so far who have had dental work there, only to have it break upon their return to the United States: My son and I and the woman Dr. Hall mentioned.
Be advised that we did do our due diligence to the degree that we could and from there on in it boiled down to one thing: Trust. Now, Dr. Hall will tell you he is trustworthy. He'll even have other people tell you he is trustworthy. I'm here to tell you that he most certainly is not.

On a side note to Dr. Hall if he reads this post: It's not too late to do the right thing. Just say the word and I will give you the name of a dentist I like and you can wire him or her the money to fix our teeth. If that happens - and I am not holding my breath - I'd be more than happy to inform the world that you have redeemed yourself.
