Very much impressed with the amazing qualifications of both the doctors! The respect and care given was wonderful. The doctors and staff are very lovely people to deal with. “Many many thanks to Dr.Kathurias for my new smile and strong teeth.
I would recommend Dr. Kathuria's Dental Clinic to anyone living in, or visiting Delhi.
Very good and professional customer service, very competent dentists and staff. Received zoom whitening and two large fillings from Dr Sween, very happy with the results.
The time I provided for the dental implants was not only restricted to a number of days but it was also confined to the needs of my travel schedules. Dr. Kathuria went out of his work schedule to help me! I was uncertain and stressed out about the whole procedure but Dr. Puneet Kathuria's reassurances saved me from the nightmarish thoughts of dental-work disasters. Two months post dental implants, I have not experienced a single problem with the implants. Today, I have found back the confidence to laugh. Thank you Dr. Kathuria! Jai Bharat! Jai Dr. Puneet Kathuria!
Facilities and Services available in this clinic are of highest standard. I am blessed with their lovely environment and nature of their treatment during my short duration. Doctors and Staff are friendly in nature and the level of hygienic is well satisfied. Now, I am happy with my teeth. Thank you so much..
