a visit to the dentist is dreaded by many but thanks to Dr Nanda, it
is not a nightmare anymore. Dr Prem Nanda, one of Pune's leading dentists,
has been practicing since the last 33 years and has acquired a reputation
of being the best. Being born and brought up in Pune, he still claims
that the city remains his favorite in the whole world. He continued
his higher education in Bombay and is a gold medallist from the Bombay
University. Although now he is really in love with his work, taking up
dentistry was not really a planned decision.
||With appointments from morning till night he works 9.30am-6.30pm everyday.
Although it may sound stressful to most, Dr. Nanda isn't one to complain.
He claims that since he thoroughly enjoys the work and confesses that a
good swim is all he needs to face all challenges that a day brings.
Holidays are usually on Sundays and after every 3 to 4 months, he indulges
in his other hobby - travelling.
aware that dentistry is a dangerous field he uses only sophisticated
sterilization technique like the ASEPSIS. As far as possible, disposable
material is used. Also, for those who faint at the mention of a dentist,
Dr. Nanda uses totally painless methods. Especially for children who are
scared of the anaesthetic injection, he now uses needle-less
injections and therefore going to the dentist can now be a pleasant
experience for both the doctor and the patient.
began work in 1976 in Pune and is now a member of various related
organizations like the Indian Dental Association, American Association of
Orthodontist and World Federation of Orthodontists. He is also a fellow
member of the Academy of Dentistry International.
As an expert, he avers that dentistry has one of the brightest scopes and
is one of the most worthwhile careers, but maintains that to be a good
dentist one should have some qualities from within like a caring and
understanding nature and a willingness to help the ones in need.
Dr Nanda says that people should stop putting off dental treatments to the
last moment and should tackle it in the earliest stage. To escape
complicated and expensive treatment, a check up once in 8 months would be
sufficient and also not expensive.
