COLUMBIA, S.C., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Clients of Companion Global Dental who travel to Costa Rica for care now have a convenient way to see Costa Rica's volcanoes, national parks, coffee farms, biological reserves and other breathtaking scenery while awaiting their dental appointments.

Companion Global Dental, a division of Columbia, S.C.-based Companion Global Healthcare Inc., has affiliated with Tropical Expeditions of Costa Rica to provide its clients with day or overnight tours of popular attractions. Clients may schedule tours for before or after completion of dental work, or between appointments if multiple visits are required over several days.

Companion Global Dental coordinates all arrangements for dental care, travel and Tropical Expeditions tours.

Companion Global Dental ( ) affiliated with Prisma Dental Clinic and Meza Dental Care, both located in San Jose, Costa Rica, in 2007, as those clinics became the first to join Companion Global Dental's overseas network.
