I have just completed root canal treatment and I cannot fault the highly competent dentist Mitul, who completed the procedure, and Toni who assisted. The atmosphere was extremely professional and the rapport between Mitul and Toni was great which made for an easy atmosphere and consequently put any nerves at ease. The procedure was as pleasant as root canal treatment can be and apart from the initial numbing injection, was completely pain free.I would also like to add that the Covid procedures at Brickfields are excellent and you feel safe at all times.
