I had such a positive experience here. Dr. Dhawan treated me. Even though my case was a little complicated, he was able to save my tooth. My treatment was not that long and was painless. I have a bad gag reflex, but doc and his assistant (special shoutout) were very accommodating and no point did I feel uncomfortable.
Dr. Dhawan has done an excellent job with my dental implants and crowns. I would highly recommend them to anyone in search of dental excellence. If you are searching for dental “artists” these are your guys.
