Dr. Mayekar is the one dentist I know who has made sitting on the chair the best experience ever.

Karan Johar.

Dr. Mayekar helps a wide spectrum of people, from stars to the underprivileged and makes us all proud with his expertise and philanthropy.

Saif Ali Khan.

My family - Shah Rukh, my children, Shah Rukh's sister, we all swear by Dr. Mayekar.

Gauri Khan.

We use our teeth every day to munch on an apple or carrot, to hold a pen-knife or a hairpin, we put them on display when we smile or laugh. But we rarely think about the strain we subject them to, rushing to the dentist only when our teeth cry out in pain. Or, sometimes, when they disturb the symmetry of our face.

Teeth may get lost while shooting for a Bollywood fighting scene. They may shrink to half their size because of too much cola intake. A man may commit suicide because of the buzzing in his ears caused by a strained muscle in the jaw. Dr. Sandesh Mayekar has seen all this and worse. He has filled the dark cavity in a molar, fought smelly mouth odour, whitened a ladys gums for a beauty contest and sealed that wide gap between a mans front teeth for a photo shoot.

More than a mouthful tells the stories behind those healthy teeth that you see on TV or on the ramp. Mayekar has stayed up nights, sometimes travelled miles, to address an emergency. He has assuaged patients fears with as much clinical care as personal concern. It is also the tale of one mans determination to master his craft and lay the foundation of aesthetic dentistry in India is a journey that has taken him from humble beginnings in a chawl in Mumbai to the swanky bandstand at Bandra.

Written with compassion and laced with wit, more than a mouthful is what the doctor prescribes to rid you of that fear of the dentist.
