I am not sure if appropriate to mention the name of a company but Trivita could be an internet home based business that might work if you check it out.
I agree with the adventuresome – my sister and I travelled by rent a car for 10 days with little spanish. we travelled from San Jose to Arenal and then to Jaco and South. No problems for 2 gals over 50 and we had the best time – the CR people were great and with a smile and patience you can manage just fine! patsyatcostarica
Thanks everyone for your opinion – it was fun to see so many thoughts!!:) pat
I am not in anyway doubting the commitment to oral health by the CR people nor dental professionals- all I am asking is if people would like a choice and some folks are very much accustom to the DH treating them for their routine care. If it means that I could practice, I will go through the process. Pat
Thank you again for your candid responses. I have been a practicing RDH for 35 years and now teaching future DHs. I appreciate your comments about the preventive services and the ability of your dental hygienist to bring you to the best oral health. I know she is very good at what she does best – prevention! With the increasing evidence of the oral-systemic link related to overall health, the role of the DH is so important to our patients. It is so refreshing to hear your positive comments. I hope one day to be able to practice in CR. Be well! Pat
Thank you for your opinions. In response to the issue of how would an individual know or even care. I do find in the US that many individuals prefer a DH because the education is very specific to the preventive services rendered and many DDS are too busy with restorative type services and would rather delegate this aspect of care. Since many expats are from the US just wondering their opinion. I would not expect the salary as paid in the US but would welcome the opportunity to continue practicing my profession. If not possible, I guess a change in life would be considered. thanks again. P.
