Prosthodontists are dental specialists who have undergone recognised and professionally organised academic training that gives them comprehensive skills and knowledge to plan and treat more complex dental restorative challenges. The specialist training develops the ability to carefully examine new knowledge and concepts and to ensure that proven evidence-based care standards are adhered to where possible. This additional training is designed to address a range of rehabilitative issues, from smiles and appearance to the rehabilitation of broken-down teeth and returning dental function to patients with few or no teeth.
The aim is to ensure that the patient receives superior long-term results instead of a ‘quick fix’ approach that might break down prematurely or even damage teeth and gums.
Prosthodontists also play a role in the diagnosis of complex cases requiring care by specialists from other disciplines, such as Orthodontists (Braces), Endodontists (root canal treatment), Periodontists (gum treatment and implants) and Oral Surgeons (implants). We work closely with our specialist and general dentist colleagues to ensure your care is smooth and always in the best hands New Zealand has to offer.
Dr Kothari was very patient and caring with me, treated me with a lot of respect and gentleness besides being professional, attentive, sensitive, elegant and very thoughtful in your approach, to meet my sensitive and complex health situation, and created the best solution for my mouth. You have a very good bedside manner, you have a great positive energy with thought for solutions and nothing is impossible.
From the very first appointment we were made to feel at ease. I am the carer of the patient, who felt a great deal of anxiety, as most people do. Dr Kothari was genuinely concerned and empathetic. He is extremely kind, gentle and patient. Words cannot express how grateful we are. Every question answered with respect and details.
A special thank you to Dr Siddharath Kothari for his excellent and caring service. I never experienced treatment like this before. Within 30 minutes I had 5 teeth extracted and a replacement fitted which fitted perfect, I am very happy and a BIG thank you to Dr Kothari. – Anne Reiners
All my back teeth needed to be stabilised, crowns and a bridge being required. I found him to be responsive to my requests for treatment options regarding durability and costs. He proposed an evidence based treatment on which we agreed before he began work. As work proceeded we discussed problems that arose and agreed on solutions. I am delighted with the finished result. – Dave Wilson
I have been in the care of Dr Siddharath Kothari for the past few months. I would like to commend his clinical expertise and his friendly, calming manner. He made my visits almost pleasurable.
The dentist and assistant were really nice and patient with me as I have a very small mouth and it is difficult to work on.
Fantastic service. Professional and top notch. Technology is up to date. Dr Siddharath Kothari was very cordial and dexterous. Dr Kothari and assistant worked quickly and effectively. As well as making one feel at ease and relaxed. 10/10
