However I dare say I am in my right place – I work in the profession that provided me with fulfillment, gratification and a big, big joy for the accomplished.”

What our customers say
Paldies par profesionalitāti, attieksmi un sapratni! 🤩
Loti, patīkama dakterīte ar vieglām rokām.
Sajūta, ka esi nonācis drošās rokās.
Настолько тщательной гигиены мне ещё не делали, уделяет большое внимание каждому зубу! Карина рассказывает как ухаживать за дёснами и за зубами в очень доступной форме. Подбирает уход индивидуально, даёт нужные советы.
Я очень довольна и на гигиену буду ходить только к ней! 🌷
P.s.laikam tā dāvanu kastīte pie kases pēc apmeklējuma-darbojas☺️
Diemžēl nenoticēju šīs ārstes profesionalitātei, nekad nebiju dzirdejusi terminu uzpūtušās, laboju zobus regulāri pie cita ārsta. Tad nolemu griesties pie viņa, kur aizejot nebija neviena labojama cauruma. Neiesaku doties pie šīs dakteres vai arī viņai vajadzetu pardomāt savu ārsta taktiku. Nesmuki, ja tērejat manus resursus, stradajot klinikā ar vārdu. Ar cieņu Daiga
Neliela vilšanās ir vienīgi par mājaslapā norādīto 10% atlaidi mutes dobuma higiēnai piesakoties internetā, pieteicos tur, taču atlaidi maksājot nesaņēmu. 🙄😅
Overall I was looked after by friendly and professional team, will return there in future. Definitely recommend.
Novēlu Jūsu komandai arī turpmāk būt tik saprotošiem un pretīmnākošiem katram mazajam pacientam. Mans mazais puika noteikti ar prieku dosies katru reizi pie Jūsu jaukajām dakterītēm.
Visu cieņu Jūsu darbam.
Paldies, dakterei Rūtai Egļukalnei un viņas asistentei (viņai gan diemžēl vārdu nezinam).
No sirds, milzígs -PALDIES!!!
Vai nav kam sāpēt pat,
Bet vajag dzīvot
Un prasties kaut ko arī grauzt,
Kas var labāks būt par šo!
