It was the best experience. I had done dental scaling multiple places and this was most painless dental treatment.
I came to Dr. Vidhu initially with pain in one of the teeth. She suggested that we need a root canal treatment as the cavity has grown big and reached the nerve endings. The root canal treatment was smooth without much pain and got a good crown on top.
Dr. Vidhu is a thorough professional, she is extremely patient in her dealings, supervises the entire procedure well and does a timely follow-up on your schedule. She also coordinates and manages well the timings of the external doctors who practice from her clinic so that the patients do not experience delays.
I had my wisdom tooth extracted from my lower left jaw. I have got reference of Dr. Vidhu from my dentist in Delhi. Dr Vidhu is extremely friendly and is very easily accessible on phone. She listens patiently and doesn't mind giving time for talking/explaining, removing all my apprehensions. I am very satisfied with Dr Vidhu and feel very assured. I would definitely recommend her to all my known ones.
