I have visited this doctors many,many times over 16 years for a variety of dental procedures and would travel a thousand miles to receive treatment from him rather than any other dentist. Not only is the quality of his work excellent but also his manner and absolute professionalism. In my own case, I am quite terrified of dentistry, in particular of anything to do with drills and I very much appreciate his patience and kindness with my fears. (I think it may be because he specialises in work with children!)
I've been seeing Dr Thaper for about 7-8 years. Me and my wife are Very happy with all the treatments and services we are getting. We live in New York and when I compare I feel his clinic and professionalism is a step above western world.
Taking treatment for whole family and relatives since more than 25 years .outstanding knowledge of subject , clinical work both theoritcal as well as in practical.,diagnosis, treatment with outstanding courtesy & politeness like a family person.
Only Dr. Rajeev Thaper could have made this possible ......making the entire denture of my grandfather Shri J.B.Sharma who is of 90 yrs. and fixing it without screws in gums...... and now he is capable of eating and chewing the food again without any problems.👍
