Aesthetically the clinic looks good and the staff are extremely hospitable. I was given access to WiFi whilst I waited and my appointment started on time.
First I was diagnosed by Dr. Sanjiv Kalra, this included a few x-rays for my teeth which I was pleasantly surprised to learn I wasn't going to be charged for (not always the case). I was informed that my teeth were in pretty bad shape (something I've known for a while but avoided tackling because I hate getting dental work done), I'd quite a few cavities one of which was bordering on root canal territory. I was given a few treatment options and choose do to a risky filling instead of the root canal.
After diagnosis, Dr. Sanjiv Kalra's son took over. We decided to tackle 3 cavities including the would-be root canal. The doctor suggested we start without local anaesthesia and apply it if the procedure was causing pain. A lifetime of experience with dentists has taught me that drilling around deep cavities is always painful but, not wanting to appear a coward, I agreed to begin without anaesthesia. Miraculously there wasn't one bit of pain and before I knew it we were winding up.
Overall it was the least worst dental experience of my life. Both father and son had immaculate bedside manner and used top of the line dental equipment. For the first time in my life, I'm actually not dreading my next trip to the dentist.
