Dr. Grace Ordonez is the perfect dentist for people such as myself who have avoided dentist is the US due to fear, costs or previous bad experiences. Prior to moving to Cuenca from the US I had spent several thousand dollars having two Crowns replaced which began to fail soon after arriving here. I have always hated to go to the dentist and must say I was apprehensive visiting dentist in the US and very much so in Ecuador. I also suffer from TMJ and that requires some special care which increased my fears. After meeting Dr. Grace as everyone calls her, I began to feel somewhat reassured. But after she began her first exam and was so careful and caring I was able to relax a bit. She took care of my immediate needs over several visits which included rest time for my TMJ. Because I had not properly taken care of my teeth and seldom visited dentists unless I absolutely had to, I did have a lot of work that need to be done. Over the course of nearly a year Dr. Grace restored several crowns, arranged for two implants and rebuilt one bridge and added another, She is amazingly gentle, and kind. And the work she and her team preformed on my teeth was amazing. I can’t say I love sitting in a dentist chair or getting my teeth worked on but I can say, Dr. Grace is my perfect dentist and I trust her completely to tend to my dental needs
Quite simply, she is the best. And for you not in the area, you can pay for the exquisite care with
your savings. How good is that?
I have been in & out of dentists offices my whole life in the U.S.A. and was extremely skeptical my first visit about the quality of work in South America since it is so much cheaper. Walking into Dr. Grace's office for the first time was a pleasant surprise - she speaks VERY GOOD English, it's arguably neater & cleaner than any office I've ever been to, and she was extremely pleasant & professional while discussing the work that needed to be done.
When she started working on me I got nervous again because she didn't use harmful medications, a first for me (outside of regular cleanings). Before I knew it she had the fillings done, 100% pain free. She also did two crowns which I have had for over 5 years now and have had ZERO trouble with. After that she told me she could fill in the gaps in my front teeth and give me a whitening treatment - that changed my life. When I left Cuenca I had the confidence to smile and even show off my teeth for the first time in my life. All of that work with the cost of the round trip plane ticket was about the same price as the crown alone in the States. Now I refuse to let any other dentist touch my teeth, because you cannot beat Dr. Grace's quality & sensitive touch. Thank you Dr. Grace!
