Jayaram Talks About SDS

Jayaram Shares His Experience at SDS

I did do some research online and I saw very good reviews about the doctor and I just wanted to try it out. I came here first for cleaning, and then I found that I had a couple of cavities that needed to be taken care of. Also I knew that there was a problem so that had to be filled and capped. I'd been putting it off for some time. The doctor made a crown right in front of me and I was absolutely amazed. I really liked the way he took care of me.
