Good Morning, Ms Dipa,
Greetings from Bangalore. It's hard to believe we were in Hythe
on Wednesday and now we are here and the treatment has started.
The flights were excellent and we were collected from the airport
as arranged. We were delighted to meet the happy, smiling, helpful
Ms Kusha and our registration was handled very efficiently.
My treatment plan was reviewed and confirmed, the team was introduced
("Many people will have their hands in your mouth during
the next three weeks") and they inspired confidence.
The Hospital is all that anyone could wish for - Friday was
a marathon session with 5 Root Canals and 2 & 1/2 hours
drilling, and yesterday (Saturday) all they wanted was to see
if I am OK, now we have a holiday until Wednesday morning.
We both think we could not have had such good care and treatment
anywhere; there is still a lot to do but it feels good so far.
The 'Service' Apartment is fine; now we know what it means -
our own room en suite with a living room and kitchen shared
with two other Apartments, and 4 house boys to cook, wash, clean,
etc. for which we pay Rs. 2,400 nightly including tax; and we
can recommend it. It takes about half an hour to get to the
hospital in the rush-hour by rickshaw, less on Saturday, for
Rs. 35. We are conveniently located for exploring the City,
shopping and restaurants. I hope these few notes may help you
and anyone else thinking of coming here for treatment. best

Mr & Mrs Nick (Niranjan) & Celia Tailor
Mr & Mrs Tailor from N. London visited Goa on holiday in December
2004 and paid a visit to one of The TMG's Dental practices.
Nick had two crowns replaced and some extensive bridgework.
Nick is pleased to testify that the service he received
there was brilliant and furthermore, he was pleased to have
saved in excess of £2000 compared to the quote he
was presented in London.
Since then Nick and Celia have regularly visit Dr Sunil's
dental practice in Colva, South Goa.

With regards to my treatment at The Manipal Hospital in Oct.
I was met at the Airport by staff and taken to the hospital
were I had to wait for some time befor being asked to register.
I was then taken up to the sixth floor were I was given a room.
It was not of a standard I had expected and I complainded to
the staff. I spent the first night here, but because of my complaint,
was moved up to the eighth floor to an executive room the next
day. Couldn's have wished for a better room, it was first class!!
The staffs were extermely helpful, and very professional at
all times. In particular Kusha Srinivas (releations executive)
from The International Care Cell gave me every assistance, which
made my stay very easy indeed.
The consultand dental surgeons, Dr. M. A. Baliga, took a great
deal of trouble looking after me and making me aware of the
procedures as they came up. I am returning on April 19th to
have the teeth fitted to the implants. My stay this time is,
as suggested by Dr. Baliga, for three weeks (two for the dental
work, and one to make sure it is perfect.) I shall be staying
in a serviced apartment, which the hospital will arrange, on
My thanks to you and your staff for all your help.
