Dear Dr Thomas , In 2004 I was being advised by my Dublin-based dentist that I needed very extensive and expensive dental treatment.
From reliable sources I heard about Dr Thomas and Scientific Dental Clinic in Kerala , India.
I made contact by email with Dr Biju and having outlined to him the extent of my gum disease, he advised me, subject to examination, the treatment that I would require and the likely cost of that treatment.
This difference in the cost which I had been quoted for the treatment in Ireland with Dr Biju’s quotation was very significant.
Before going go India to undergo the extensive dental treatment which I needed with Dr Biju, I had his credentials checked out. I confirmed that that Dr Biju had received his specialised maxillofacial fellowship from the Royal College of surgeons Ireland and was working as a senior specialist in the maxillofacial department in St. James’s Hospital in Dublin and had practised there for a number of years. I learned that he came highly recommended by his professional colleagues for his work while in that hospital. St James’s hospital NHS Trust is a tertiary referral centre for our country.
I went to India for the necessary treatment. I found Dr Biju to be very professional in his approach. In addition, his surgery in Cochin and his staff were excellent. I had dental implant treatment and other cosmetic dental treatment done there. The fees for the treatment were very reasonable in comparison with the quotes that I had been given at home.
On the basis of my own experience I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Biju to anyone wishing to avail of his professional services.
