For quality and trustworthy dental services, ******* ****** ****** ** *** **** ****** My very front four teeth were perfectly crooked which seemed beyond imagination to be normal. But today when I got my neon green braces out,my teeth looks like the ideal model teeth which feels like more of a work of an artist rather than a dentist due to its perfection. Because of Dr. Rathi, from a bugs bunny smile, I now have a beautiful and perfect smile. His personal care , a friendly 5 minutes talk and his ever smiling and positive face always made a dreaded dental clinic also the most awaited visit. His humility, passion and determination for his work can be seen and as a budding entrepreneur, I aspire to build these qualities in my life as well.
My experience was very good as it got my smile back and I am thank full to the doctor.The doctor was very calm and polite with us. He listened to us diligently and solved our all apprehensions and queries patiently.when we first when to the clinic we had a different look and now thanks to the doctor I can now smile without any hesitation.
