I was hunting for a good dentist for quite some time. Since my earlier experience was not so good. So I was very much skeptical for trusting a new doctor again. I found Dr Meeka on Practo and gone through the reviews that were amazing and very positive. So to gave it a try, I went to her. In my first meeting only I was very much sure that my search had just ended here, not just for this treatment but for a lifetime now. She is very patient and will explain everything in detail to ensure that you are equally knowledgeable and satisfied I was hunting for a good dentist for quite some time.
