Dear Dr. Richard,

excellent_testimonialsI wish to place on record my sincere appreciation in the manner in which you attended to me, when I underwent dental treatment under your care.

At the outset, I was extremely impressed with a very well equipped clinic and state of the art medical equipment. The overall ambience is very soothing and has a feeling of freshness.

The treatment itself to my surprise was quite painless. I am thankful to you for your kind approach and your caring attitude which played an extremely important role in the calming me down at a time when I was rather nervous.

Your diagnosis of the problem was first shot. This is something which could not be diagnosed by any of your colleagues in your profession whom I had visited before, and as a result of which I have been suffering since the last six months.

I have no doubt, that the dental treatment that I received at your clinic was world class and I look forward to visiting you time and again for regular check-ups. I will be more than happy to recommend Gum Care to anybody and everybody that I am associated with. That brings me to you punch line – “You don’t just drill, fill and bill, but provide total lasting treatment.”

I wish you all the very best and God bless.

Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,

Dear Dr. Richard,

gc_patchI am utterly grateful for the hospitality, politeness and most of all, the professionalism of you and your staff and for this I should be the one thanking you and not the other way around.

When I arrived in Mumbai with the intention of getting treated with my regular dentist, I had my reserves of using Gum Care’s services. However the quality and professional treatment

Gum Care provided me has left me without a doubt and I have already recommended you to my neighbour for his next treatment.

Plus, I must say, the treatment was so painless that your staff asked me (jokingly of course) whether I was still alive, as I was completely motionless!

Once again, thank you for the excellent treatment, swift response to my needs and utmost professionalism from Gum Care!

With Best Regards,

thanks_bannerI recently had the pleasure of being treated for an aching tooth at Dr. Pereira’s clinic. Being a stranger to Mumbai and uncertain about where to seek recourse for my worsening pain, I was relieved when my insurance company in Slovenia was able to arrange for an emergency visit to Dr. Pereira’s clinic, even though it was Sunday and most clinics were closed. Dr. Pereira showed up especially to see me despite his day off an I took great comfort in knowing that my condition, still a mystery at the time, was afforded such immediate attention.

I have visited dentists in the U.S. and several European countries, but the service I received over the next two sessions at Dr. Pereira’s clinic was the best so far, by a mile. First, a careful diagnostic process, where more easily treatable causes for my pain were considered in order to avoid an unnecessarily invasive procedure.

It turned out I was lucky, and required only a cleaning of the gums and a filling, even though the pain had been substantial and had led me to suspect I might even be experiencing a recurrence of a root canal, something I had been treated for, a few years back. But fortunately not so. Dr. Pereira explained patiently just what had happened to my tooth and how to avoid it in the future and gave me a choice of treatments, clearly explaining the differences between them. The actual procedures were surprisingly painless and, it turns out, very effective. It’s been a few weeks since my visit, and my tooth feels great. Throughout, Dr. Pereira and his entire staff were terrifically friendly and accommodating.

I would highly recommend anyone in the Mumbai area to give this clinic a try. Foreigners, considering procedures that are expensive in their home countries may find it worthwhile to travel o India instead and get quality service at much, much better prices at a clinic like Dr. Pereira’s All in all, two thumbs up.

excellent_appleIt is with great pleasure, I would like to state that my entire family has been under the care of Dr. Richard Pereira since the last few years. We came with a lot of complaints about pain in our teeth and gums and have been relieved of our complaints.

My son has even undergone the “invisible braces” treatment offered at Gum Care and is very satisfied with the results.

Dr. Pereira has been kind and good at the dental treatment extended to my family.

We wish Dr. Pereira the very best and are confident that Gum Care will continue to bring smiles and cheer to one and all!!!

Dear Dr. Richard,

feedback_03I write this testimonial with immense appreciation for you and your clinic.

The day I entered your clinic, I felt a sense of peace and began to feel comfortable. It was not only because you and your team made me feel at ease. Not only because your clinic prides itself of the latest gadgets in the dental world. Not only because of the cleanliness and sterile surroundings. Not only because of all your credentials proudly displayed at the entrance of your esteemed clinic. It was something much more special. It was the melodic hymns that played in the background.

I was always nervous about getting my left side wisdom tooth taken off, as my last experience two years ago was quite a painful one. I did express all my anxieties and concerns of this experience to you, and you were certain that I would have a much less painful experience at Gum Care.

I finally gave in and decided to go ahead and get the wisdom teeth extracted. This was surely a ‘wise’ decision for me. I was made to feel at ease right through the oral surgery and the surgeon kept reassuring me through the procedure. At the end of it all, I was told that it was one of the most complex extractions done at Gum Care to date. One tooth had to be cut right through as it was wedged into the bone, and the other had four roots holding it into place. Nasty little fellas!!! Believe me, the most comforting was the sweet music that kept my nerves at ease.

Well the little ‘wise’ guys are out now, and I’, recuperating from the surgery. Much less pain from the last time around. Much more comfortable too. For my own sake, I do hope I do not need to get onto the hot seat again, but if I do, then I know its gonna be at Gum Care.

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending your clinic to most of my friends and relatives, some of whom are in a lot of ‘pain’, waiting to come down from abroad to get their teeth attended to.

Dear Dr. Richard,

thanks_testimonialsThis is to thank you for the excellent dental treatment that I received some weeks back. I found your treatment excellent as you gave me proper advice on how to give the best treatment for my teeth thus saving the pain and my tooth.

I must say that your specialist in your clinic did a fantastic job in getting the perfect fitting for my cap which my earlier dentist failed to achieve.

Now I can eat without discomfort. My brother too had a great experience at your clinic and I am happy to recommend you to all my friends and colleagues.

Thank you once again.

Yours sincerely,

excellent_testimonialsWhen I was suffering from teeth sensitiveness 1½ years back I had visited a dentist in Mulund. After he was through with the examination he said “if you want to feel better you will have to undergo Root Canal”. I immediately stepped out of the clinic saying I needed some time to think and thereafter never visited and dentist because of the fear inside me.

When I joined BNI I got the privilege to meet Dr. Richard Pereira and took an appointment for a routine check-up. I was so very impressed, the way he made me understand each and every detail about my teeth and gums and assured that there is nothing wrong. He suggested I should change the technique of brushing my teeth and relax. He said never think about your wife while brushing teeth.

Once again, I am really thankful to Dr. Richard for helping me remove the fear in me.

gc_patchOne can never get used to the dentist’s chair, or so I thought.

For 20 years, I never visited a dentist fearing the pain and the agony of past dental experiences.

But after going under the gentle touch of Dr. Richard’s expertise, I now happily hop into the chair knowing it is going to be a painless experience.

He is an absolute master of his profession with the skills to soothe and reassure jittery patients in his state of the art clinic. What more can one ask of a dentist? Strongly recommended!

God go with you Dr. Richard.

Dear Dr. Richard,

thanks_testimonialsWith great assurance I can unequivocally say that from my first visit to Dr. Richard’s dental clinic, I was absolutely impressed by his dedication to detail, his passion for his profession, and his seemingly effortless strive to achieve the greatest result possible. I can say without hesitation that he is the best dentist that I have ever had the pleasure of being treated by.

Dr. Richard Pereira and his staff are the best! I have nothing but the highest regards for their services, and especially Dr. Richard’s ability as a dentist. He is one of the few that can “do it all” right in his office without referring patients out to other “specialists”.

Having spent several hours in his chair, I know firsthand of the sensitivity with which Dr. Richards treats his patients and the excellent results of his work. I cannot imagine having this amount of work done by anyone else. I simply cannot find words to express my gratitude for his talent and care as a professional.

Dr. Richard’s office is one of the very few that treats patients with respect and is always prompt with their service. It’s almost impossible to have doctors and dentists these days that will follow-up with you. On several occasions, Dr. Richard has personally taken the time to call me at home after treatment to check on me. Now that’s service! Professional, courteous, and an expert at what he does. What else can one ask for?

Dr. Richard, I want to personally thank you for the excellent dental care that you have given to me and my wife during our short stay in India. It is a pleasure to recommend you to others.

You have loads of knowledge and experience and do your work with great acumen and patience.

Above all you are an excellent human being.

I have no hesitation recommending you to members of my own family and the friends we have in New Zealand. I hope other New Zealand visitors will benefit from you as well.

I certainly look forward to catching up with you when we are in India next.

Kind regards,

feedback_03“My wife Kelly and I had visited Dr. Richard’s Gum Dental Clinic for dental treatment. Dr. performed extraction for me and my wife and some other dental treatments.

The entire treatment was painless and the whole experience at Gum Care was wonderful.

I strongly recommended Dr. Richard’s Clinic to one and all who need his services.”

thanks_banner“It is with great pleasure to recommend Dr. Richard Pereira as a dentist whose practice and professionalism is beyond reproach in every aspect.

Not only did I receive “State of the Art” care by Dr. Pereira, I was attended to by personal phone calls by Dr. Pereira after each and every visit to ensure I had encountered no problems with treatments received by him.

Being an American citizen my experiences at his clinic, the “Gum Care Dental Clinic” reinforces my opinion that the American Dental Association would benefit from following his example, definitely an example to be emulated in all aspects.

Should you wish to contact me, please feel free to call me at: 9819788924, Mumbai, India.

With great respect to Dr. Richard Pereira. ”

“Dear Dr. Pereira,

I was indeed fortunate to come across your dental center and that too as you know by sheer chance!

Apart from resolving my pressing gum problem that I had initially come for I was lucky that you discovered other abnormalities & problems, which I am happy to say are entirely resolved to my total satisfaction.

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone as apart from your ability & gentle hand, you have outstanding norms of cleanliness as well as modern updated techniques, which are so essential in this modern age.

Well, for my own sake I hope I don’t need to see you for a long time, but incase of teething problems, you can bet you see me again!!

With gratitude and many thanks again.
I remain,
Sincerely yours,”

Dear Dr. Pereira,

excellent_apple“I was treated for Dental Care at your clinic between 12th June and 25th June, 2007.

I had 6 teeth crowned by you on the upper jaw and must say that you have done a wonderful job in repairing my teeth and I would like to say that I am very satisfied with your personal care and professional work.

My wife also would like to come back again to Mumbai and get her treatment done at your clinic. In November 2007 I would like to come and get the lower jaw teeth done in similar way.

I thank you and our kindest regards.

Yours sincerely, ”
