What People Say About Dr. Lalitha Shankar, MB
Reply
Very disappointed, she was my dentist for a long time and never notices a huge cavity on my wisdom tooth that is all the way out and clearly seen. Once I started having lots of pain I went to her and she didn't even notice it, she said any "mouth movement" could trigger the pain and just take meds. Then when I told her it was the wisdom tooth few days later and I need it extracted, she refused doing it saying the nerve is curved, even tho it was not. Unskillful, worst place to go to

I had extensive crown work done by her which threw off my bite. I was told she could only file the new crowns only so much to try and correct the bite which left me with a very bad bite. It then lead to one of my crowns cracking from hitting a bottom tooth and the bitting my gums and lip when chewing. When I contacted the office to speak to them about this, they never answer the phone or return the many messages I left. Very disappointing.
