2 clinics for General Consultation
I was having tooth ache because of cavity. As soon as I called the clinic appointment is fixed through practo app and doctor attended me. He suggests some medicines. Now pain is reduced feeling better. Thanks doctor thanks for the support.
Very kind and professional towards the work. The best part is we get reminders promptly, which facilitates us in regular dental check-up.
(06-Mar-2020) I had my first appointment today. I was totally satisfied, though it is painful due to my totally decayed tooth with root infection as well, doctor Srikanth calmly handled me and explained everything in detail to me. I am sure that my problem will be fixed asap. PS: Edit (11-Mar-2020) I visited twice again for my followups. I always had this fear of going to dental clinics due to the painful procedures that we have to undergo. But believe me, I can't wait for my next appointment and get my tooth treated completely. It relies solely on the doctor and the clinic's hospitality. Dr.Srikanth thoroughly checks his patient and he doesn't leave his patient behind. Everyday I used to get call from smile solutions and they check me upon my comfortableness on the procedure undergone and check upon my pain. I have never been under this kind of thoughtful treatment before. I am really thankful to Dr.Srikanth and Smile solutions staff's for taking care of my dental health. I would also like to mention the ambience of the clinic, the clinic is highly equipped with latest technology equipments. It is quiet and neatly maintained. I will update again, once my treatment is completed.
Doctor was friendly and all the medical supervisors knew what their job was. Super service Srikanth. Keep it up.
