57: TOPIX FORUM IS GONE, BUT...



As many of you know, the Dental Tourism forum over at Topix was very popular and had a wealth of info based on peoples experiences. Well I received a message the other day from a gentleman that had backed up a lot of it, if not all, and is making it available to all. Big thanks go out to Eddie!

Click on the blue text to access the documents. The first one, which combines all 389 pages onto one page, make take a few seconds to load up. My personal preference is the 2nd link that has each of the 389 pages as separate files but of course use what works best for you. A lot of reading but some very good info there regarding dental work in Costa Rica.


Hi Rod.
I'm Eddie.
So, Topix recently deleted all it's posts, including the "Dentist in Costa Rica" topic.
But I recently downloaded all 389 pages, then converted them to text files.
And I combined all 389 pages into a single text file.
One file has the single text file that combines all 389 pages into one text file.
Dentist in Costa Rica Topix Forum 389 pages in one document

The other file has all 389 pages as separate text files.
Dentist in Costa Rica Topix Forum 389 pages, each page a separate file

I posted on Tripadvisor but they removed my post. I guess it's against their rules.

So maybe you could publicize my message on your site.
I'm just trying to help people with the info from Topix, now lost except for my handiwork.

I also have all 389 Topix pages as html files, if that's of use to anybody.

Thanks

If you wish to comment on one of my posts, please be aware that it will not show right away and in fact can take a few days before showing up. I monitor all comments, approve the ones that are valid and delete those that are nothing more than spam. Also please submit a name when making a comment.

I actually enjoying fielding your questions and I do everything possible to answer to the best of my ability and in an unbiased way.

55: COSTA RICA BOUND!!!



I'm so excited that I don't know what to do with myself! I will be making my 3rd trip to beautiful, gorgeous, friendly and beautiful Costa Rica in January of 2019 (yes I know I said "beautiful" twice and it's deserved). Let me get this out of the way...there is nothing wrong with the dental work that I received back in 2014 and in fact, I've had zero issues. My beautiful wife and I are heading back to CR for some rest & relaxation with a dentist appointment thrown in. The dental visit to Dr. Prada's DDS Dental Clinic is nothing more than to get a check-up, cleaning and most of all to see my old friends there.

We will be in CR from the 12th to the 19th of January and this time we are staying just outside of the wonderful little town of Atenas up in the hills about 35 km from San Jose. I will, of course, do updates to the blog while I'm there with posts, photos and videos. I've missed Costa Rica so much and I've been longing to head back.

If you have any questions for me regarding my trip or if you have questions you would like me to forward to Dr. Prada and/or Dr. Gonzalez, Dr. Carranza or any of the other awesome team of specialists there, just shoot me a message and I'll do my best.

I'll be posting updates as the trip approaches so stay tuned to the website for the latest information. I'll be posting where we decided to stay while in CR, what we plan on doing for fun and so on.

Follow my journey, as you did 4 years ago, as I head back to incredible COSTA RICA!!!!
