Recently, my dad was suffering from a very severe toothache that wasn't going away. We figured it could be more serious than your average cavity, so we wanted a dentist with skill, honesty and expertise. I'm very pleased to say that Dr. Heggade qualified in all respects. It was our first visit to her, and we only found her after doing quite a bit of research. We selected Dr. Heggade due to her positive ratings, years of experience and the fact that she spent some time providing her dentistry skills in "undeserved communities" in the Warren County area.
Well, after x-rays and an oral exam, Dr. Heggade showed us how my dad had an infection at the root of one of his teeth. I was very impressed with her honesty, and she explained that while she could extract the tooth, we may want to consider taking our need to an oral surgeon as the infected area was extremely close to a sinus packet in the roof of his mouth. And if there was any break into the sinuses during the tooth extraction than he would have to be taken to an oral surgeon immediately. We followed her advice with great success, and Dr. Heggade was very helpful in providing any information we needed, answering our questions, sending copies of the x-rays to the surgeon, etc. I'm happy to say my dad has already completely recovered from the infection.
Since then, I myself have gone to Dr. Heggade and have taken a few of my siblings to her for general checkups. My brother and I have also gotten several fillings. Every visit has been met with a professional quality and personal assistance by both Dr. Heggade and her staff. I'm very grateful. Once, when my sister got sick before her first appointment, and I didn't inform the receptionist until the moment of her to-be-canceled appointment, the woman was as understanding and as sweet as always and simply helped me to reschedule without any penalty or problem. She even asked us once on her own how my Dad's infected tooth was doing, with a sincere personal concern.
All in all, I cannot think of any reason why I would not recommend Dr. Heggade and her team to anyone. I myself am very grateful that we found her. They are truly a blessing.
