I highly recommend Dr. Acosta for his fine, professional work. I have had some very extensive work done, and I can say his technique is state of the art. His office staff is friendly and courteous. – Susan Schenck
I first heard about Dr. Jose Acosta from some expats that live in Cuenca. I checked his web site and watched his video on You Tube before contacting him via email. Dr. Acosta has about 30 years experience as a practicing dentist. I needed either an upper partial or implants. After careful study, Dr. Acosta recommended that I get a bone graft and 6 implants. I accepted his recommendation and he performed the procedures that afternoon.
Dr. Acosta will be taking the impressions and making the crowns for my implants in about 3 months time. I highly recommend Dr. Acosta to anyone. He speaks fluent English and his office is well equipped and he works in a very sterile environment. – Fred Gharis

A number of dentists were brought to my attention by various expat friends. I initially chose Dr. Acosta from among the referred dentists, because while all the referrals came well recommended, Dr. Acosta was in close proximity to where I live on the west side of Cuenca, and I was told he spoke fluent English.
Dr. Acosta is friendly, and at the same time he is no nonsense as he plies his dental skills. I appreciate his equipment that allows me to see exactly what the problem is in my dental work, and what options and recommendations he offers to me to repair the problem. Dr. Acosta is highly skilled and trained, and comes from a long tradition of following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather in the field of dentistry. I was also able to meet his young son, who also intends to follow in his father’s footsteps as well. No doubt this family tradition manifests itself in Dr. Acosta’s pride and high quality in the dental work he provides.
Quite frankly, Dr. Acosta is the best and most effective dentist I have ever had in my lifetime. He recently provided me with two new crowns, which was important to me as I had major fillings replaced, and hope to avoid later need for root canal or dental partials. I have always had a gap between my two front teeth, and he did a beautiful job of cosmetic makeover in rectifying the problem. I am now returning to have a thirty year old metal crown replace. As luck would have it, the adjoining tooth which also had a large filling resulted in my breaking more enamel from the tooth when I bit into something hard, so both teeth are in the process of receiving crowns. The crowns have expertly been molded to allow my plates to feel comfortable.
While Dr. Acosta has many Ecuadorian patients, his clientele is growing among the expat community. As I know a number of friends, and acquaintances from the Expat community who use his services, and all with whom I have spoken have been highly satisfied with his work. I highly recommend Dr. Acosta to you for his excellent services. – Jim Mola
