Dental De Care is one of those rare finds - a conveniently located, fairly priced, full-service dental practice distinguished by the caliber of its surgeons and overall quality of service.
Facilities (Rated 3.5/5): Occupying the entire ground floor of a residence, the surgery’s independent facilities – which include a Reception, Patient Waiting Area, 3 Consultation Rooms, X-Ray facilities, and Bathroom were clean, well maintained and provided for a safe and welcoming environment. The patient pool (based on my visibility) generally drew from a broad cross-section of Bangalorean society – with students, young working professionals, tourists, married couples, families and Grandparents in equal measure.
Appointments and Payments (Rated 4/5): Appointments and bookings are handled over the phone, or in-person, and are digitally recorded with a complimentary text message reminder of your appointment conveniently delivered to your mobile phone 24-hours prior. Time slots were generally always available to fit my schedule and perhaps more importantly - appointments made, were appointments kept – with waiting times rarely more than 5 minutes. Payments are accepted via Cash or Charge with receipts provided for all transactions.
Services Provided (Rated 5/5): A full-service Dental practice, ‘Dental De Care’ provides a complete breadth of services covering both essential care and cosmetic solutions. Most common procedures – such as cleanings and fillings - require but a single visit to complete, with more complex procedures such as root canal + crown combinations generally requiring two sessions.
Dental Practitioners (Rated 5/5): In perhaps the most important facet of care – the caliber of its surgeons - ‘Dental De Care’ truly shines. The practice provides access to a full-service suite of highly accomplished dental surgeons and specialists, to include Orthodontists, Prosthodontists, Periodontists, Pedodontists, Endodontists and Oral-Maxillo Facial Surgeons (many UK / US trained, and with 20+ years of experience). Furthermore, a patient’s care is guided not by general surgeon availability, but importantly, by the specialist best suited to handling a particular procedure. Personally, based on my initial experience with the surgery, I decided to take care of some long-overdue dental work – throughout which, I was always treated by a specialist in the field, and always felt like I was in safe and experienced hands. Special thanks to Dr. K.M Pramod, Dr. Prithvi and Dr. Rozina.
Quality of Service (Rated 5/5): In Dr. K. M. Pramod, I found an accomplished medical professional - patient, caring, with sharp diagnostic skills and thoroughly uncompromising on the overall quality of service provided. Overseeing and guiding a patient’s overall care, Dr. Pramod provides a wealth of information on treatment options and typically detailed 2-3 solutions with varying emphasis on speed, durability, cosmetic viability, cost etc. Procedures are then handled either by Dr. Pramod (for Orthodontics) or specifically by a specialist in the particular field. Frequent consultations between specialists ensured treatment plans remained on-time and on-budget.
Overall (Rated 4.5/5): In today’s world of impersonal assembly-line medicine, ‘Dental De Care’ is a rare find – a socially responsible practice focused on long term patient health. It’s rare to find folks who will consciously steer you away from a more expensive treatment for one far more affordable, practical and better focused on a patient’s particular need – but this occurred on more than one occasion during the course of my treatment. It was little surprise then to learn that over 95% of patients at the practice came from personal referrals and long-term repeat customers. I found myself impressed by the surgeons, extremely pleased with the both the high quality of work as well as overall service, and simply cannot recommend ‘Dental De Care’ highly enough !!
