Absolutely wonderful,clean,friendly and professional customer service. Saw Dr... Arun and Dr Mangla for a root canal, gum lift and bridge work here, which was a long standing isssue that had not been treated correctly. It couldn’t have been more different here, absolute skill and professionalism from start to finish. The cost was also much cheaper than here in the UK. At no time did they push products at me, I was given clear choices throughout, and I will be returning next year for a more

Dr. Arun and his team are always very dependable and accommodative. I could... only manage to arrange for a short-term visit to India to get the implants for my front teeth done and apparently, planning the sittings and the meticulous follow up to get the required materials on time to work it out perfectly to suit my looks, especially because they were the front teeth, was extremely important. Not only did Dr. Arun take up this risky time-sensitive task with a welcoming attitude, but also totally impressed us by taking so much care to work out everything so well in the limited time to my fullest satisfaction. Now after a couple of months of having the implant done, I can confidently say that the quality of the job done by him is so good that no one even noticed that these are my implant teeth and even when I myself suggested Dr. Arun to one of my friends here who was considering a dental treatment, they still couldn't tell that they weren't my natural teeth smiling at them! Exactly what I wanted!! They look absolutely natural and this was my main expectation when I went in for the treatment and they have been undoubtedly fulfilled. I can't thank you enough Dr. Arun & team!! Keep up your good work & wish you all success!read more
