Rating from 12 Reviews She explains before she proceeds with the treatment, No pain at allNuurhidayah, Malaysia, 05 Dec 17

Dr. Christine was a very kind person. She explains before she proceeds with the treatment. No pain at all. After treatment, her assistant called to follow up my condition. This is the good service and practices after treatment I had. I did my root canal treatment. Price is reasonable - X-ray + 4x treatments. No lump sum payment, we can pay for each appointment. Clinic beside the road, easy access, easy parking. The clinic was a comfort and equipped with advanced machines and technologies.

6G-2-3, ALL SEASON PLACE, LEBUHRAYA THEAN TEIK, AIR ITAM, 11500
Rating from 4 Reviews Explained every single detail before treatmentMok, Malaysia, 15 Jul 15

Had one tooth extracted, very professionally done. No pain at all. Dr Chew patiently explained every single detail of the procedure before treatment was executed. Dr Chew was also very patient to explain some questions I asked him on general oral care while waiting for the anaesthetics to take effect. Overall, the location of the clinic is superb-parking is free at All Seasons during the day (on weekdays) and we parked the car right below the clinic. The clinic assistant was also very friendly and of course Dr Chew is young and good looking. More importantly, I was impressed with his professionalism of running the clinic and the reasonable fee the clinic charges. I made an appointment for scaling the following week right after the treatment. Highly recommended to visit this clinic. Maybe the clinic should play soft background music to spruce up the atmosphere.
