feeling better. pain reduced. Applying paste given by doctor. This is first day after doctor visit. will observe.
Dr Soukhya and Dr Sanjay were very professional and gave me a very good RCT.
They were very patient and understanding as this procedure is very painful, however they explained the nature of the procedure and performed it smoothly.
Friendly professional and cheerful staff makes you comfortable and relaxed. Treatment is good.
Was great and to the point affair. The doctor was able to successfully extract the wisdom tooth without any complications.
I was treated by Dr Shivananda for an emergency crown at 4pm on a Sunday. His care and attentiveness is superb and I was impressed with the way he handled multiple patients so late on a Sunday with relative ease considering he was a one-man show. The crown colour was not precise (but I guess artificial tooth cannot replace natural ones) how we had pictured it and he offered to redo it for free when I did my teeth whitening at a later stage. His bedside manner and informative style put me at ease and I came out 4 hours later with a complete, smile. I will return to them for further treatments due to the good service and attention I received.
I’m delighted to have an opportunity to provide a review of SmileAlign Dental, located at RT nagar.
My wife and I were patients of a another practice for over 30 years, and have remained following the changeover with Shivanand couple of years ago.
The practice has continued the quality professional dental services and I have every confidence that my needs and that of my family will be met in a timely and effective manner.
The staff are wonderful and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in need of dental services.
Iam currently at 9 months through my Invisalign treatment journey with SmileAlign Clinic, and the experience has exceeded my expectations.
Dr Shivananda is very patient, gentle and comprehensive in his treatment. While I was initially concerned about the level of compliance required for Invisalign to be effective, integrating it into part of my daily routine has turned out to be straightforward after the first couple of months from starting the treatment. In my experience, inculcating the habit (of removing/replacing aligners during mealtimes) is relatively easy once it has been formed.
My full treatment is estimated to take around 2 years, but I am already seeing significant gains, especially on my front teeth. Side benefits of Invisalign include (a) tremendous improvement in health of my gums with the increased attention and guidance from Dr Shivananda, and (b) greater attention in keeping to regular mealtimes (and avoiding snacks in between!).
Prices for both Invisalign and generic dental treatments are also very competitive / reasonable, in my opinion. I would highly recommend SmileAlign Clinic as a one-stop solution for any dental and orthodontic procedures.
Friendly and professional practice. Thank you doctors and staff for helping in this Covid times.
I highly recommend this practice.
My experience of the VitaSmiles Dental and its staff has been absolutely excellent. From the free initial assessment to the treatment itself, their care, professionalism and expertise has been outstanding. I chose VitaSmiles after an initial visit and consultation with Dr Shivanand who is so sound on diagnosis and giving a plan which is practical and easy on pocket too. Dr Shivanand is quite simply the dentist who is foremost I have ever had dental treatment with. His team are also superb , making the whole experience first class. I honestly can say I experienced no pain, and not once did I feel anything but total confidence and relaxed in the hands of Dr Shivanand and his team. My treatment included implants, root canal surgery, bridges and crowns and the cost of this has been an enormous saving over what it would have cost in the UK. I would say to anybody considering dental work, visit VitaSmiles Dental Clinic, get a professional opinion of what needs to be done from some of the finest dentists in Bangalore and then place your trust in them. I really am so pleased I decided to use them for the work I needed , and I would like to add that in no way whatsoever am I being paid or rewarded for my comments. I just feel that when you have an incredible experience then you should tell people about it ! My thanks to Dr Shivanand and his team, and all the staff for making my experience an absolutely brilliant one!
