What our patients say about us
I had intense pain and swelling in my teeth which I had done root canal from another dentist ..my friend recommended me abt Dr Pingale…I visited him .he explained me and assured that my pain will go and the tooth will be saved..he did a repeat act on my tooth my pain was relieved…and tooth saved.
I was fearful regarding the cleaning of teeth because I used to think teeth will get damaged or loose after cleaning.But Dr Pingale patiently and nicely cleared my doubts and after cleaning was done my gums became stronger and teeth whiter.thank you, team, WCI Dental Care.
