Interviewed by The Success Today – A Digital Webzine.
Could you introduce us to yourself and your business?
I’m Dr Krinita Motwani, a cosmetic dentist and smile expert. I have been running my multispeciality dental clinic located in Khar West, Mumbai, since its inauguration in 2010 by the respected Shri Yash Chopra. We are proud to offer residents in Mumbai, across the country and globally, outstanding holistic dental care in a relaxing environment. We collaborate with each patient to design the perfect smile.
Your achievements in your industry are more than impressive. Would you like to share them with us today?
I have more than 20 years of experience in dentistry after graduating from Government Dental College, Mumbai, with a degree in “Bachelor of Dental Surgery” in the year 2002. With a growing interest in cosmetic dentistry, I completed my “Advanced Post-Graduation in Aesthetic Dentistry” from Manipal University in 2011. I am on my way to being accredited by “The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.” I am also a life member of the “Indian Academy of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry.”
With such cut-throat competition in this industry, what is it that makes the services you offer exceptional?
Our clinic is a state-of-the-art dental studio, devoid of the typical dental setup, where our patients are greeted with an elegant blend of high-tech and soothing ambience. We try our best to make the procedures 100% painless, and there is also an overhead TV to watch their favourite Netflix shows during the treatment. With the use of cutting-edge dental technology at our clinic, like digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras, and laser dentistry, we are able to make more comfortable appointments and rarely need to refer our patients for speciality treatment. Our clinic is also ISO 9001:2015 certified for maintaining quality management and we are proud to be awarded “Clinic of the Year” by Famdent Excellence in Dentistry Awards 2018.
What are the different services your business offers?
As a skilled and highly trained aesthetic dentist with hundreds of beautiful smiles to my credit, I believe anyone can have a beautiful smile. Our world-class in-house equipment and lab collaborations with 3D computer imaging help us design the perfect smile, implementing cosmetic treatments including tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, reshaping misaligned teeth, and repairing damage caused by wear or traumatic injury.
What is meant by the term “smile correction”?
Smile correction, in simple words, is a procedure in which the shape, size, shade, and position of multiple teeth may be altered to achieve the perfect smile. After a thorough examination by the cosmetic dentist, a treatment plan is made, keeping your requirements and facial features in mind. It includes procedures like reshaping your gums, laser treating dark gums to make them pink in colour, whitening your teeth to make them bright, dental bonding to close gaps between teeth, and veneers to correct any chipped, crooked or discoloured teeth.
How do you choose a good cosmetic dentist?
Choosing your cosmetic dentist is a crucial step in planning your treatment to ensure good results. It is essential to make sure that the dentist has had continued learning or advanced degrees in cosmetic dentistry and is an active member of reputed dental organizations. You could visit their social media pages and ask for before and after pictures of previous cases to understand the results you can expect. You must check previous patient reviews on the internet to learn about their experience with the cosmetic dentist and their clinic.
You have achieved so much in life. Is there any specific advice you’d like to share with new people entering this industry?
My advice to new people entering the field of cosmetic dentistry would be to receive continued education from an esteemed institution and learn the intricacies of the subject the right way. Emphasize the importance of practising ethically and keeping patient satisfaction as a top priority at all times.
