Find Health in Ecuador is an “American Standards” Dental Clinic, located in the heart of Cuenca, Ecuador, which proudly serves thousands of North American Expats living here, in addition to those visiting Ecuador as dental tourists for their Dental Care.
Find Health in Ecuador began in 2012 as a combination “dental and medical tourism” organization, providing dental/medical travelers with facilitation services, translation services and doctor referrals to the most prominent doctors and surgeons in Cuenca for their dental and medical procedures & treatments, at prices far lower than available in the U.S. itself. Find Health in Ecuador was thereafter written about in the world’s most renowned medical tourism magazine, named “Medical Tourism Magazine”, published by the Medical Tourism Association, so as to highlight its expertise within the industry, and describe its unique offerings and services in the beautiful country of Ecuador.
We are closed for Ecuadorian holidays, but are available 24/7 to answer any emails inquiries about new appointments and dental tourism, etc.

DENTAL SPECIALISTS & STAFF
Find Health in Ecuador was founded on the premise of bringing and connecting good people together for the purpose of operating its business at it’s highest capacity for the client in which it serves.
Nicholas Barringer, originally from Minnesota and Wisconsin, has studied, lived and worked for the last decade in the Latin American countries of Argentina, Guatemala, and finally, Cuenca, Ecuador, where he has made his permanent home. He became profoundly involved in dental & health care facilitation in Ecuador for the benefit of Expats, when he began learning via first-hand accounts of the many related case studies, stories and personal histories of Expats (the majority of which were very positive ones at that!) who had experienced top-rated Dental and Medical care, accompanied by amazingly low costs for their health care needs and desires.
Adam Elliot Altholtz, originally from Connecticut and Florida, is a seasoned entrepreneur, with a tenured history of owning and operating as well as consulting to various dynamic enterprises and persons, primarily in the realm of offering elevated services to the most discerning of clientele. He cultivated a strong acumen for “needs fulfillment services” in Ecuador, and continues to rely on his myriad of business and client specific experiences in creating a truly delightful and enjoyable venue setting for Find Health in Ecuador’s dental patients in coordination with their doctors, caretakers and servicers alike.
Dr. Andres Pacheco graduated from the Catholic University where he obtained his MS in Dentistry. He is highly honored for receiving a 96/100 on his final graduate test from the faculty. He then went on to learn and study in several areas of importance in the dentistry world such as serving as a renowned dental spokesperson in various seminars and workshops. He also served as a Coordinator in the area of Outpatient Surgery at the Hospital Central Antonio Maria Pineda in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Dr. Andres Pacheco then began his dental career working for a Dental Practice, “Pro Dental”, as a Dentist as well as sub-director for a Health Center for the Health Ministry of the Province of Loja when he then became enabled to register under SENESCYT (Ecuador’s Government Institution for Certifying Degree Credentials). He soon after became a Dental Professor at the Catholic University in Dental Anatomy and the University of Cuenca as well as Chemistry at the Catholic University. Today, Dr. Andres Pacheco works at the “Find Health in Ecuador Clinic” and is known widely for his gentle and “no pain dentistry techniques”. His hobbies include nature, classic cars, motorized sports and going to the movies.
Dr. Santiago Reinoso graduated from the Catholic University of Cuenca, Ecuador. He went on to do his postgraduate course at NYU in New York City. He did his residency training of 4 years in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the National University of Mexico in Mexico City and received training in multiple fields that include Oral Surgery, Implant Surgery, Maxillofacial Reconstruction, Facial Trauma, Orthognathic Surgery and Aesthetic Facial Surgery. Then he moved to Cuernavaca city to perform a one year fellowship training in Maxillofacial Pediatric & Craniofacial Surgery and was awarded as the best Resident Doctor in the “Hospital del Niño”. Then he moved to Los Angeles to complete a one year fellowship training in Craniofacial Surgery at Kaiser Permanente Hospital and at UCLA in Los Angeles. He then finally returned home to Ecuador to start his private practice as an Oral Surgeon and Professor at the Catholic University in Cuenca, Ecuador. He just finished a Master’s Degree in Scientific Research within the medical fields, and he is currently also the Dean of Dentistry Faculty at the Catholic University itself now.
Dr. Juan E. Malla Peralta graduated as a Dentist with honors from the Catholic University of Cuenca, and began his career working in the public health ministry of Ecuador, establishing oral health for the inhabitants of less privileged areas, and thereafter worked as a Dentist serving various non-profit foundations in Ecuador. In his continous pursuit of academic excellence and superior capabilities in dentistry, he very regularly attends numerous symposiums, congresses and seminars to increase his knowledge and skills. His desire to do so also lead him to study a postgraduate course in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology at the Faculty of Stomatology at the University of Cayetano Heredia in the city of Lima, Peru, graduating in the very top percentile range of the program. He is currently working in the MEDIMAGEN Building in Cuenca (where our Clinic is located), as head of the operative area of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, where he diagnoses and studies cases of oral and maxillofacial pathologies and is also a proud member of the illustrious staff of professionals who make up the Find Health in Ecuador Dental Clinic.

I am very happy to recommend what I believe to be the best dentist in Cuenca, Dr. Andres Pacheco. I have been a patient of Dr. Pacheco for over a year, having previously had dental work done in Cuenca by three different dentists. There is no comparison – Dr. Pacheco is the best! Aside from having excellent work done, I am especially grateful that Dr. Pacheco has perfected techniques that allow a patient to have a pain free experience. Imagine that – seeing a dentist and not having pain! I give him my highest recommendation.
Dr. Andres Pacheco is very professional and all his co workers and assistants as well. He did an excellent job on my old crowns and whitened the rest of my teeth. He made 8 crowns and one bridge and finally, I can smile my best, feeling proud of my teeth. Dr. Andres and his staff always make sure I was comfortable and I trusted them from the beginning. I´m very happy with the results and the price is only 1/5 of the price in my home country, Iceland
I highly recommend the dental work of Dr. Andres Pacheco at the “Find Health in Ecuador” Clinic in Cuenca. Being that my father was a very fine Dentist in Toledo, Ohio, USA, as a patient of Dr. Andres, I found him to be a very thorough, competent and a caring practitioner. His office and x-ray lab are equipped with “State-of-the-Art” technology as well…
I am very discerning and quite particular about my doctors and dentists. I would rate Dr. Pacheco and his staff, including Dra. Diana Mences, the specialist who does the root canals a 10 out of 10 for their professionalism, empathy, and courtesy. This is not to mention the quality of the work I have had done there.

I’ve been a client of Find Health Ecuador for 3 years and I have to tell you both how impressed I am with your staff member, Ana Maria Ledoux. She is extremely knowledgeable, considerate and caring about the patients and more than helpful to many, many times, for me personally, with my issues, concerns and making sure that I understood what the doctor was saying to me before I left the office Always a pleasant experience on appointment day. Respectfully submitted, Denise Schreiber
In the past few years, I had to replace some of my dental crowns, as they had been in my mouth for more than 30 years. There was no decay, but my gum line had receded from them and I did not like how they looked. I have always taken care of my teeth, and I did not want to have to resort to wearing dentures.

Before I left the United States for Ecuador, I met with a couple of dentists in West Palm Beach, where I lived. I was looking at extensive dental reconstruction. As one dentist told me, “Be prepared to pay as much as a nice SUV for the work you are needing”. (Read full testimonial here)
Dr. Andres Pacheco uses the latest techniques in dental care. He does almost no drilling, instead using his dental pick to carefully save as much of the tooth as possible. He is virtually pain free.

I first want to compliment you on Dr. Andres Pacheco’s amazing work with me yesterday. After an anti-anxiety pill from your doctor, I was relaxed and comfortable during the entire procedure to repair a broken tooth and replace a mercury filling.

We want to thank the great staff at the Find Health In Ecuador Clinic for sponsoring the free seminar on diabetes. It was a great learning experience under the tutelage of Nick Fenger. If you think you know all there is to know about this disease, Nick will enlighten you to the contrary. Should this opportunity be offered again, please do yourself a favor and attend.
Nicholas, please extend my many thanks to Dr. Andres Pacheco, for seeing me on such short notice the other day. Although I didn’t have any acute dental issues, it was important to establish a dentist, and get a check up and cleaning. I was so impressed by his thoroughness. (Read full testimonial here)
I would like to thank Nick, Adam and their excellent staff at FindHealthInEcuador for their efficiency in providing us with doctors, dentist and chiropractor assessments and treatments. We have been living and traveling in Ecuador for about four years now and have recently moved to Cuenca. (Read full testimonial here)
First I want to say how easy and rapid it was to arrange surgery, barely two weeks from when I commenced. That is impressive. Nicolas Barringer’s replies to my emails were very quick and responsive, always helpful and courteous, so communication was exceptional which helped inspire confidence. (Read full testimonial here)
It was wonderful to meet you while in Cuenca recently as part of Nathan West’s Ecuador Relocation Tours! We appreciated the time you and the others in your organization spent with my husband (John H.) and me. In fact, the meetings with your organization, the hospital Del Rio staff, and your doctor was the most useful part of an outstanding first trip to Ecuador. (Read full testimonial here)
I would like to thank Nick at FindHealthInEcuador. I was introduced to a lovely cosmetic surgeon. The procedure was painless and she did two dermal fillers including botox for a fraction of what it would have cost me in the US.
I live in Cuenca and Nicholas is a wonder of the medical tourism industry. He introduced me first to a plastic surgeon who removed 2 large warts from my face (no pain or discomfort!) and then secondly to a biological dentist that helped me with pulling out a tooth for an infected molar (again, no pain or discomfort at all). I am now relieved of pain and very thankful that someone could get me in contact with a doctor who was honest and fixed my problem quickly.
I live here in Cuenca, Ecuador and I was in need of a Cardiologist for my arrhythmia and tachycardia. Nick immediately took concern to my condition and facilitated me to one of his organization’s finest heart doctors in Cuenca, who quickly lowered my heartbeat and prescribed the medicine I needed to get back to living the life I wanted to! Thank you FindHealthInEcuador.
A car hit me over 8 months ago and my memory as well as thinking abilities was distorted due to the accident. I suffered from tremendous anxiety as a result of my incident. Luckily, I stumbled across Nick and FindHealthInEcuador and they immediately put me under the care of a highly qualified neurologist, and now I am feeling so much more like myself since my new doctor prescribed me with the medications I needed and now I am significantly relieved of my former anxiety.
Thank You Nick! and FindHealthInEcuador!
I needed some work done on my teeth and approached FindHealthInEcuador to set me up with one of their dentists. Due to extreme sensitivity, I needed a gentle and caring dentist and I was not disappointed by the dentist selected for me. He was quick, sensitive and extremely professional. I would not hesitate to recommend FindHealthInEcuador for your dental requirements!
The dentist selected was efficient and extremely affordable. I would recommend Nick and FindHealthInEcuador if you are looking for good, low cost dental treatment in Ecuador.
I was in need of getting my wisdom teeth extracted and Nick helped me find a oral surgeon while I was visiting Cuenca. The doctor was very friendly and explained everything to me in English. The whole procedure took only half an hour and was very professional. (Read full testimonial here)
