very friendly nature plus very good with what she is doing in her work ,I visited multiple times and always positive nature and very clear with suggestions
I Surender Kumar aged 65 went to clinic for tooth ache and the normal checkup. Doctor preappointment method had no waiting time and after examination it was found I need RCT and capping in one teeth on left side and supportive tooth on right side as all molars were missing.
My experience with the Doc was excellent. I got her reference from a contact who had also got himself treated from Dr. Sangita for a similar problem. My experience with her turned out to be something beyond my expectations.
I recently went to Dr. Sangeeta for a root canal procedure and I must admit it was the most pleasant dental visit I have ever had. She's very skilled, a thorough professional and most importantly very compassionate towards her patients. She's now my dentist for life!
