Watch how we put your braces on!

Three months ago, my son-in-law decided that the irregular teeth of his son now 12 could be considered for braciers.

 It was not a difficult task for me to find out and fix an appointment with a ortho dentist for this purpose, as I was already familiar with ARUDHRA DENTAL CLINIC

 where two good dentists, husband wife, work together as a team, at two different clinics one at Saligram and another at Virugampakkam.  Their professional competence should be simply seen and observed to be believed.

 At these clinics, the first thing that appeals a new comer is the hygiene as well as the courtesy as also the data bank assiduously developed by Dr.Shankar Guhan MDS and Dr.Sangeetha MDS ably assisted by Dr.Krishnapriya BDS.

 Both the dentists are particular not only about the cleanliness of the environment aspect but also make sure that the instruments are sterilised immediately on attending a patient. This was the one which appealed to me most when between 1996 and 2001 I was running from pillar to post to find out a dentist with sterlised instruments.

 Sterilisation of instruments should be a rule rather than an exception at every dentist's office. But unfortunately this aspect is most neglected in several of the clinics. And during one of my visits to another clinic in 1997 or so for pulling an errant tooth, the dentist told me that he had to care more rather the patient, since, while attending to every patient's teeth, he actually increases his vulnerability to severe infections like hepatitis -B not to talk of HIV

. At this Arudhra Dental Clinic, I can say with confidence that any and every patient is treated with particular care and more than that he is being followed up also. This follow-up and feed-back is woefully absent in our country, but which is a must in other developed countries.

 The doctor ought to know whether his line of treatment worked and his patient fully recovered or not. But in India no clinic to my knowledge advises the patients to call on them after a week or so, when the drugs prescribed period is over by telephone at least to inform them .

 In one of the famous Corporate hospitals, they use a feed back form. But to my shock they get it signed by the patient while he is being discharged. I once refused to sign a form as it was totally blank and the officer told me that she would take the trouble of filling it and I need not worry about that.

 ARUDHRA DENTAL CLINIC falls in a different category altogether. 
 I trust them AND THIS TRUST HAS SPRUNG OUT OF MY OWN EXPERIENCE WITH WHAT THEY DO.
