MUMBAI AND ITS ARRAY OF DENTISTS
Posted by krishna on August 4th, 2014
Amchi Mumbai, as its popularly called, has earned itself the tag of being the most populous city in the world. With a population of over 20 million people, it is easy to assume the living conditions of majority of people there. A lot of them live in chawls where poor sanitation, improper disposal of garbage and waste products, and unsafe sewage disposal are a common sight.
Oral health in Mumbai
About 70% children under the age of 15 in India suffer from gum problems. A survey done by the Indian Dental Association found out that 92% of students face dental decay. With increasing consumption of junk food of children and adults alike, dental health is in a deteriorating phase. Stress has also led to an increase in smokers and tobacco consumers. More so, majority of children have dental problems with irregular teeth that need to be straightened and aligned, bad breath, or teeth that need cleaning.
With such statistics, it is easy to come to the conclusion that the most populous city would have a horde of patients in this respect. But the amount of traffic on Mumbai roads! It is a surprise people can get to their destinations on time. Not to mention the cumbersome task of travelling when you are unwell and then waiting outside the dentist’s clinic for your turn.
It is a pain, really, to not know if the dentist will be there to see you.
Imagine having a severe tooth ache, and living in Mumbai! Imagine having to leave home at 9 in the morning in order to reach the train station in time to board the 11 o’clock train so as to reach the doctor on time because he was recommended to you by someone. Now, you finally reach there and you find out that apparently a lot of people have recommended him because he has a horde of patients waiting before you. So you wait your turn for hours.
Or worse still, what if you reached his clinic on his off day? It is really frightening to be living in a city where traffic jams are a common occurrence, and dentists have a lot of patients. Wouldn’t it be a lot simpler to be able to make appointments with doctors beforehand to ensure that your visit to the clinic won’t go in vain?
Convenience of online appointments
Well, then. Book an online appointment! It is easy, convenient and a sensible option in today’s time when doctors as well as patients have taken to the world of Internet. It has now become possible to book appointments online for doctors that you wish to visit. And if you haven’t decided which doctor to go to, there are many search portals that let you search for one, of any and every specialty, in your city or locality.
Pretty convenient, isn’t it? Mumbai dentists have realized that their demand is increasing and thus, have signed up on various sites for you to search them and book appointments. So don’t sit back. Book an appointment online and ensure an easy and fruitful visit to a dentist in Mumbai.
