After losing my front tooth, I was left with not only a gap in my smile, but a gap in my confidence. The treatment by Dr.Suraj Hegde was very professional in every step. I had to undergo Dental Implant.Each step of the implant process along with the restoration of additional teeth was clearly explained by Dr. Suraj Hegde .His expertise was evident with the complete dental restoration process.I would recommend Dr.Suraj Hegde for his quality and perfections in dental treatment .The staff was very considerate and caring. Thank you. Great to have my smile back!.

If you are looking for an ethical and hard working doctor and a clean clinic, then this is the place to go. Got implants for my father and some fillings for myself. Had an amazing experience. My father is finally able to eat whatever he wants. And I should also mention, this clinic has the state of the art technology, yet the charges are very reasonable. Thank you Dr. Suraj Hegde for your TLC.

Few months back I could eat only soft food due to lose of teeth and managing balance diet was difficult. Conventional denture was not of much help and my jaw bone density was not very good either.The dental surgery I underwent at Dr. Suraj Hegde’s clinic to get my implant based denture has been a sucess. It was entirely his doing. Now at the age of 68, I can eat and enjoy even raw almonds.The dental surgery done by Dr. Suraj has been a life changing event in my case and it means much more than just saying “Thank You” to Dr. Suraj and his team.

Quality care provided by Dr. Hegde. Never compromises on anything. He has his own OPG machine (dental X-rays), so no need to run around the city and further delay treatment. Very approachable and friendly. Even the staff are too good and kind.Thank you for the treatment Dr. Hegde! Would definitely recommend anyone with dental issues.

I recently finished my braces treatment at Dr Hegde’s Dental Specialty Clinic, and I must say that it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. First, I underwent a root canal treatment that was expertly handled by Dr. Hegde, showcasing his great expertise in dental care.The clinic itself is modern and well-maintained, with state-of-the-art equipment that instills confidence in the quality of care.Dr. Shetty, the orthodontist at the clinic, is exceptionally skilled and also extremely friendly and approachable. He made me feel at ease throughout the process, explaining each step in detail.Completing my braces treatment was a significant milestone, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcomes. My smile has been altered because to Dr. Shetty & Dr Hegde’s expertise.I strongly recommend Dr Hegde’s Dental Speciality Clinic to anyone in need of orthodontic treatment or dental care.”Thank you for giving me a smile that shines just like everyone else’s.”

Good dental clinic,good staff and professional doctors, but the doctor must also hear what patients are trying to tell him.our family go to hegde dental clinic from last 20yrs for any dental work and never been a issue until now,the clinic brings the artificial teeth from lab made from outside karwar and the quality of the fitting are not so good like what it used to be long time before.doctor must see what has happened instead of telling all excuses rudely so that we dont have word to say anything. Todays world is modern doctor and all the information is available on internet about human teeth and i know most of the things because i have studied and im a medical officer,patients come at your clinic because they trust you doctor and just because you have dentist degree and 25yrs experience and people dont have that doesnt mean that you will not hear what we are trying to tell and instead speak rudely.Doctor must check the quality of the artificial teeth which are provided from the labs instead of rudely trying to ignore the facts and simply blame on patients and i dont think it is worth the price we are paying for the poor quality teeth we are provided.

I visited Dr Hegde’s clinic recently because of a dental disaster I had while in Pantem (South Goa). I was told of Dr Hegde’s clinic by a friend who took me there. The treatment that followed was incredibly smooth and easy. Dr Hegde explained what he needed to do, and his team was just as efficient. The aftercare has also been wonderful. Since I suffer from dental woes, I have experiences of several dentists in different cities, but I never knew that I would find a wonderful doctor in Karwar town! I strongly recommend Dr Hegde’s clinic to anyone who needs dental intervention. Besides, it isn’t often that one finds a doctor who has other passions besides dentistry! It’s a great feeling to know a doctor who’s ana ace sportsperson too! Thank you Doctor!

During my holiday in South Goa my 3-teeth bridge has been replaced by a 5-teeth bridge by Dr Hegde.My experience with this dentist is nothing but positive. He is a very experienced and knowledgeable dentist who performs his work with passion and is extremely customer-oriented.The treatment was explained in full detail from beginning to the end. His friendliness and communication skills are superb. We noticed that his team works seamlessly and in a positive team environment. The most modern technology and equipment were used.Conclusion: I heartily recommend Dr Suraj Hegde for dental treatments.

Dr Hegde is a true professional and provides personalised and quality treatments.Also I’ve got to know him as a very approachable, human-oriented, social and genuine person. He is courteous in his communication and manners from the second you step foot in his clinic, creating trust and making you feel at ease instantly.I went there for an orthodontic treatment. Both Dr Suraj Hegde and orthodontist Dr Pramod Shetty are experts in their fields and gave clear explanations and managed my expectations along the way. Now I am blessed with straight teeth, and a beautiful smile.My husband underwent a challenging procedure, which Dr Suraj Hegde made look like a walk in the park. My father came from the Netherlands to get a new bridge. The whole procedure went smoothly and satisfactorily.Great quality for a decent price.I highly recommend this dental clinic.
