While this would be ideal it is often very tough to find English speaking dentist in Colombia. With the communication that is available today one would think that they could hire someone to translate requests for procedures from English to Spanish and vice versa. However, you would be surprised to see the amount of Dentists or Orthodontists that don’t have an Instagram account or a website.
If they do, they are completely in Spanish with no real means or detailed information for a foreigner to contact them and explain what they need to avoid miscommunication.
In light of those communication issues the level of cosmetic dentistry has risen quite a bit over the years here in Colombia. With the countries major music artists, actors and models leading the way promoting the dental offices they use in their hometown(s). This is due to the very high quality education available and lower overhead to start a practice which gives way to cheaper prices for materials, equipment, etc…
How can you get in touch with a board certified orthodontist or dentist and avoid a possible overpriced procedure?
We recommend that you bite the bullet and speak with someone that can communicate with these companies and individuals in Spanish. A trend that seems to happen to a small percentage people we have personally spoken with have stated that they get “gringo priced” (this is a mark-up of the real price for a foreigner doesn’t know the real costs) when they attempt to communicate and negotiate a deal with a provider in the country.
