Consulted Dr. Diksha Tahilramani Batra (Prosthodontist)
I do not recommend the doctor
Pros - The doctor is very patient and careful about the procedure and explains everything before working on your teeth.
Cons- I was there for an RCT , so will narrate my experience there
1. The temporary filling material that they use in between 2 sessions never stays beyond 2 days(The infection again seeps in due to external contact and again the cleaning is needed). The reason they say one wall of the tooth had deteriorated-no support. But I have had similar situation with another tooth treated elsewhere that stayed more than a month.
2. This means frequent visits to the dentist, maybe on weekdays your normal waiting time 15-20 mins(sometimes have waited much more) while the previous patient is treated but once when I was late by 15 mins and had informed them of the delay, they made me wait for an hour to finish with the patients who came after me, and that day was a quick one for me.
3. It is very expensive(The treatment cost for RCT was almost 5 times of what i had spent an year back elsewhere)
Dr. Diksha Tahilramani Batra replied
Thank you for your review. We apologize for responding so late but somehow we missed it. Its unfortunate that you had a bad experience at our clinic, given a second chance, we would like to service you better.
To answer each of your queries point by point.
1) We apologize for the temporary filling coming out. The prime reason for the temporary material coming is because of a severly broken tooth that has no support. Rootcanal treatment needs you to come back for a second sitting within 3-5 days. This only happens in situations where the tooth is severely damaged else we do one day rootcanal.
2) Time taken is an issue which we are very careful about we don’t like to rush our patients on the chair.Having said that we would usually not charge for the treatment if we have kept you waiting for an hour.
3) Since expensive is relative from person to person we always inform our patients about the treatment cost at the start of the treatment.
TREATMENT is not expensive but NEGLECT is.
We would be happy to welcome you to give a world class treatment which we have for so many patients before and after you
