” I had to postpone my visit to Acharya  Dental by several months. The culprit being  COVID-19.

At a time when the 5-star hotels were shut down, I was glad that my 5-star dental clinic had opened its doors.

While the place was familiar it had evolved, to reflect today’s mandatory

safety protocols. Very reassuring indeed.

Soon I was ushered into the surgery where Dr.Vijailakshmi Acharya  (unrecognizable in a PPE !) immediately put me at ease.

Within mere minutes…poof!  The troublesome wisdom tooth was extracted and I was happy to bid it goodbye.  She is quite the wizard.

After observing the suggested precautions on Day 1, I was back to normal the very next day.

A week later I was back to attend to a couple of fillings and scaling.

I was in the capable hands of Dr.Sithara who performed a meticulous job with great finesse.

In her operating room, I gazed at the yellow-tinged bird above me looking on benignly.

Dr.Sithara has promised to reveal more about my winged friend on my next visit.”
