I had to undergo a complicated surgical extraction of wisdom tooth embedded in the jaw bone which was growing horizontally and had 2 roots and was very close to the nerve. But Dr. Meenaxe and her surgeon removed it with clinical precision. All the while they made me feel comfortable and explained everything so I knew what was going on.
Extremely good. She was prompt, very efficient, and extremely good at treating the issue
She has always been good. She is punctual & shares details of the treatment. Here is a doctor who does not exxagrate patient's problem.
Wonderful. She is a very competent and reasonable dentist. I along with my friends and relatives have been availing her services for over 3 years. Highly recommended.
