Dr. Vivek Apte of Apte Dental Care is my dentist for the past 25years. He is one of the most professional *** ************* doctor in this field. I have got multiple Root Canals and Crown work done by him. His procedures are painless and quick. Even the staff is polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend Apte Dental Care to anyone looking for a good dentist in Andheri.
My family and myself have been under Dr Apte's care for the last 20 years. Recently recommended him to my nephew who is extremely pleased with the care process. Several sittings were extended to make sure the root canal treatments went to perfection and which left no scope for rework.
My family and I have been visiting Dr. Apte for almost 30 years. Dr. Apte is very professional and courteous.
