What Our Patients Say About Us

In Dr Bativala’s Clinic you get the assurance of impeccable hygiene standards, high quality materials and lasting dental care. And most importantly, a nearly painless experience, due to the skilled hands at work. Nowhere else have I felt so much at ease getting into a dentists’ chair.

Harsh Goenka Chairman RPG Enterprises

Both doctors have a very light hand , their caps and fillings last forever.. They are very professional and their clinic is absolutely neat , clean and hygienic !

Madhuri Dhoot Mumbai

What can one say about dentists who get you to smile again?! For many years I had stopped smiling because of my ‘ terrible teeth’. I had been so self-conscious of them that I had deliberately avoided displaying them consequently the lack of smiles!
Thanks to a fortuitous introduction, not only have Dr Bativala and Dr Unwalla fixed them so that I’m smiling all the time now.

Malavika Sangghvi Mumbai

This is to state that I have never had such impeccable dental work performed on my teeth as I have had with Dr Firdaus Bativala and his sister Dr Feroza Unwalla. The clinic is pristine, the staff friendly, the services impressive!! Now visits to the dentists are most welcome.

Sabira Merchant

I’ve discovered I’m the only person I know of who doesn’t shudder at the thought of visiting her dentist… Why would I? The clinic is everything the world outside is not: super clean, super efficient, punctual, professional and very pleasant. And the dental stuff gets taken care of with such little fuss, with gentle care and all the explanations required – with nice music and a great display of photographs to enjoy! I know I’m, literally, in very good hands I trust completely.

Srila Chatterjee

I can never forget the first time I came to Dental Specialities. I told Dr. Bativala not to mind me, that I was a bad patient as far as dentists were concerned. Four root-canals later, I remember leaving a happy camper telling him, “I now realise that I was not a bad patient, I just had a bad dentist.” Over the years Dr. Bativala and Dr. Unwala have become good friends. I recommend Dental Specialities highly to everyone, whether you have teeth or not…

Abhinav Aggarwal Mumbai

Most people traverse continents and oceans to visit family, on vacation or for work. Over the 12+ years I lived in New York and Europe, I traveled back to Bombay at least once a year (if not more!) with the sole reason of visiting my friend, my dentist, Firdaus. I’ve always been a nervous patient but he completely put me at the kind of ease that warranted traveling the 16 hours to sit in his chair! I highly recommend his practice, all the staff are professional and friendly and the dentist is the best in the business!

Aditi Mehta Premji Mumbai

The joy of going to Dental Specialties Centre is that once you go, they’ll fix you so good that you rarely have to go back!

Anaita Shroff Adajania Fashion Director Vogue Magazine (India) & Fashion Stylist

I have been going to Dr Firdaus Bativala’s dental clinic from when I was nearing 70 years of age. Today I am 81 years old. When I visited him first I had the usual fear of going to a dentist. Today after many many visits and complicated care all I would say is that I am totally free of that fear and it’s a pleasure visiting Dr Bativala’s clinic. Dr Bativala maintains an excellent clinic, excellent staff and keeps in touch with the latest technologies with his own human experience.
All I can say is that I wish many other senior citizens look forward to going to a dental care clinic like this.
My best wishes

Asha V. Sheth Mumbai

Our family have been happy customers of this clinic for almost fifteen years. We feel the personal touch they have with patients and friendly approach to dealing with us, which is why we keep coming back. Needless to say the quality of both Dr Firoza and Dr Firdaus and their team is excellent.

The Pintos

At Dental Specialties Centre they can remove ALL your teeth and believe me, you’ll still come out smiling.

Homi Adajania Filmmaker & Scuba Diving Instructor

The Dental Specialities Centre is a modern well equipped clinic run by very professional doctors. I’ve had quite a few implants and other dental procedures done and am thoroughly satisfied. In fact 3 generartions of my family have been treated at this clinic.
