"I get compliments for how beautiful my teeth are"
5 50Reviewed 03 May 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Bone Graft
I'm Vigi Govender, from Durban, South Africa. I had my teeth, but they were loose. I was a regular at my dentist. Had my 6 months checks without fail. My dentist told me that I was losing bone.Even if I had them removed, because of bone loss, I won't be able to wear dentures as there won't be anything to hold the denture. He said the solution to this was to have bone graft. To take bone from my hips and build my bone in my jaw. This procedure would take approximately 24 months. This frightened me . I Googled for help in this direction.i found The Smile Centre in Kochi. The person to contact was Doctor Prasanth. From there on there was only positivity. Nothing was impossible with Dr. Prasanth. He communicated with my dentist in South Africa.My X-rays were sent to Dr. Prasanth from my dentist here. On the 25th of August 2016 my daughter accompanied me to Kochi, India. Dr. Prasanth and his beautiful Dentist wife Dr. Sreeja, even went as far as suggesting accommodation that was comfortable and affordable for us. Without any time lost, Dr. Prasanth arranged for all the necessary X-rays and blood tests and general check ups.

In 5 days I had my mouth full of ne teeth. The Basal Implants. Unbelievable! I had to stay a few more days so that he could monitor my bite and check that I was comfortable with my new set of teeth , during which time we had a chance to have a holiday too.
Six months later, I'm completely satisfied. I get compliments of how beautiful my teeth are and more importantly I can eat all food as if my implants are my very own teeth. I recommend The Basal Implant with Dr. Prasanth and his team without any hesitation. Thank you , Dr. Prasanth for the work you so humbly do. You're truly blessed.

"I am very happy with the care that was provided"
4.5 50Reviewed 25 Apr 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Experts who want to show off their knowledge complicate things. And others create very simple solutions using their deep knowledge. I went to Dr Prasant with a problem I had consulted many dentists on. It was a matter of my front lower teeth breaking due to a closed bite. He devised a very simple solution with which I am very happy.

"If you are considering a dental holiday then I can recommend the Smile Centre in Kerala India"
5 50Reviewed 11 Dec 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Cosmetic Dentist Consultation
My husband and I have resently returned from India,the objective was to attend to our dental health in Kerala with the Smile Centre.We can honestly say the experience was highly proffesional and we both felt well cared for by the staff at the centre. We have returned to Austalia feeling the trip was well worth any discomfort we experienced while we undertook the process.The staff at the centre were proffesional and we both felt safe in the care of Dr Prasanth and his team.We are both very happy with the result of our treatment and I have had positive feed back since returing to Australia regarding my new smile which I love.If you are considering a dental holiday then I can recommend the Smile Centre in Kerala India.

We were both highly anxious about embarking on dental surgery in India.Our doctors and dentist did not support our decision to have implants in India, despite there concerns we were both excited about the prospect of new teeth at a much lower cost than Austalia.On our first Skype consultation with the Smile Centre we felt were were in the hands of a proffesional team of dentist, who were experts in their field this proved to be correct as we are both very happy with our decision to have both implants and crowns with the Smile Centre in Kerela India.

"They are a great team and you are in very safe hands"
5 50Reviewed 31 Jan 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
Excellent is the only description I can give for the treatment received by both my wife and I during our visits to The Smile Centre in 2014 & 2016. I had my implants done then and followed up with a review recently - January 2016.

Smile Centre, Kochi was highly recommended by a friend of ours in Australia who is one of Dr Prasanth's patient. Understandably, I did some research before sending my x ray to Smile Centre, Kochi for their assessment .This was followed up by a conference call over Skype with Dr Prasanth who worked through my dental condition and explained the treatment that I had to undergo with such clarity. This put my mind at ease and my wife and I decided to go ahead with the treatment.

Upon entering the clinic on our first visit in 2014 my wife and I noticed a message on the wall which reads "leave your worries here and let us do the worrying for you".

Not long after our registration we were ushered into the consultation room to meet Dr Prasanth with whom we spend considerable time in consultation. As we discussed my condition and treatment my confidence began to grow as Dr Prasanth came across as very knowledgeable in his area of expertise ,honest in his assessment and the treatment required for both of us. It was at that stage we realised that we can leave all our worries at the door before entering the clinic.

We have just returned from our second trip to Kochi (January 2016) to complete our final treatment and we are so very happy with the outcome.

Dr Prasanth who heads the team is not only honest but has a very caring nature and above all is an expert in his area of practice. He has a knack at putting you at ease and has great bed side manners. I will not hesitate for a moment to recommend anyone who needs dental care particularly implant/s to be done by Dr Prasanth and his team. They are a great team and you are in very safe hands.

"I came as a patient and left as a friend"
5 50Reviewed 06 Jan 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I needed implants and contacted Dr Prasanth who questioned me thoroughly, studied my case in great depth and sent me a detailed treatment plan. He explained everything, accounted for all costs and helped me organize my stay. Nothing was left to chance and I was taken care of the minute I landed at the airport to the minute I left. Not only was the treatment superb and excellent value but my whole stay was perfect. I came as a patient and left as a friend of Dr Prasanth's and his lovely family. I go back as often as I can to see them.

I chose this clinic of all the clinics in India because Dr Parsanth was the most open, straightforward of the dentists I got in touch with. He gave me a detailed estimate of the costs and explained all the procedures and told me that a whole team of highly specialized dentists would be looking after me. I also liked the full medical back-up with hospital facilities. If you have made up your mind about having implants abroad, don’t think twice: get in touch with Dr Prasanth: you won’t regret it.

I dreaded doing the procedure and put it off for a year, but Dr Prashanth put me at ease and explained the procedure to me in detail. It went off well and it wasn't half as painful as I had imagined. Thank you doctor and to your wonderful team.

"The quality of the work was great"
4.7 50Reviewed 16 Sep 2014 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals,Dental Crowns
Dentist Consultation

Very pleased with the service from Dr Pillai. I had already had a root canal completed, and needed a post and ceramic crown. It took 3 visits over 2 days to do the prep work and then create/fit the crown. The quality of the work was great, and Dr Pillai made significant effort to make sure that the work would be completed promptly within a very tight timeframe as I needed to travel. Price quoted for the Post and Crown, including clinic registration was 6,400 INR.

There are a number of reasons why a tooth extraction is needed: the tooth is severely decayed, advanced periodontal disease ("gum disease"), the tooth may be broken such that it cannot be repaired, other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth), preparation for orthodontic treatment ("braces"). Procedure: An oral examination to determine if a tooth extraction is really warranted, X-ray(s) may be taken of the tooth to evaluate both the internal aspects of the tooth, the tooth root and bone, Relevant medical history are recorded. Do ensure that you report to your dentist any problems with any previous tooth extractions, bleeding problems, medical conditions or allergies to medicationsand supplements. Local anesthetize is given to "numb up" the tooth, jawbone and surrounding gums. Tooth removal.
