    Dr. Punita and everyone working at her office was very nice and attentive. She explained everything very well and all the spa extras, like warming aromatherapy neck pillows etc, helped make the whole experience pretty stress free. Will continue seeing Dr. Punita!

    My first appointment with Dr. Shukla and Pure Dental Spa was a fantastic experience! Having gone through several dentists in my 30+ years, I really didn't know what to expect. Stepping into the waiting room was pleasant--comfy chairs, a TV (with sound off!), water, and more. They send you all the forms to sign electronically beforehand so no need to spend 30 minutes scribbling out your medical history while you wait, which made the check-in process so quick! Stepping into the office area, the whole setup is modern and classy--no hospital drab here! They call this a spa because they offer a complimentary hot neck pillow and paraffin wax hand treatment (felt good!) while you get your teeth cleaned. Dr. Shukla and her assistant were the right combination of personal and professional. No scolding and guilt here, just direct suggestions about how you can do a better job. They started with a full set of x-rays and design a treatment plan aka the costs, before beginning. While they didn't pitch some extras like laser cleaning, the office staff wasn't pushy at all. Booking a followup appointment after my cleaning was fast and efficient, with an instant email reminder with calendar invite. All in all, if you're looking for a modern, clean, professional dentist, go see Dr. Shukla!
