I was diagnosed with OKC (Keratocyst) around 2 years back. I consulted multiple Maxillofacial surgeons, but Dr. Mathai and their son (Dr. Paul Mathai) were the only ones who seemed genuinely concerned about my condition and recommended the best course of action. They answered all my questions and did not rush during consultations (which is rare these days). They have amazing bedside manner and followed up on my health before and after the surgery (for months). I felt safe, comfortable and informed during the surgery. I am glad I chose him as my surgeon as he did a wonderful job. It's very difficult in today's age to find doctors who put their patients first.
Dr. C.P.Mathai is an excellent Dentist - very warm, cordial and down to earth person. A very welcome and fantastic environment is maintained in the clinic which he personally spearheads. He has loads of experience in the field and willingly shares, leaving no doubt in the mind of patient of how his treatment is progressing. The appointments are perfect on time with timely reminder system. The cleanliness and hygiene in the clinic are of highest medical standards with excellent support staff who are very well trained. Dr. Mathai's expertise in dentistry is exemplary. Personally after years of suffering from dental issues, we were guided by one his trainees to him for which we can never thank him enough. Recommend him to all, without doubt the best in the field. He is not only our family dentist but also a wonderful friend who goes that little extra length to ensure a warm doctor-patient relationship true to core medical ethics.
Mr CP Mathai is a genius Doctor, I have visited and get his service for my mother's treatment for dental surgery. It was really a tough and complicated case but he has completed very skilfully and proficiently. I recommend his treatment for any dental problem.
I have been going to Dr. Mathai since so many years now. ** ** **** ************* *** the most experienced Doc you will find in Mumbai. I have done an implant like 4/5 years ago and still all’s good. I would always rely on Dr. Mathai for any dental issues and I admire his overall patience and expertise.

Q: Should I consult a dentist for bad breath?
A: Bad breath is often due to lack of oral hygiene. In some cases, it may be an indication of some underlying health issue. Consulting a dentist for bad breath is the most logical step. A dentist will perform thorough examination of your teeth and gums to determine the cause of bad breath. Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath.
Q: How many sittings does a dentist take for Root canal treatment?
A: Root canal treatment is a dental procedure followed for advanced decay of tooth that cannot be repaired by filling. In this treatment the tooth pulp is removed, the space is cleaned and filled, and finally a crown is placed on the tooth. The number of sittings for a root canal treatment varies depending on the extent of tooth decay.
Q: Will a dentist perform surgery for wisdom tooth removal?
