My dentist diagnosed that I had to undergo a complicated root canal treatment and recommended Dr. Siju Jacob who is a super specialist in this domain. To be honest I was terrified as I had heard horror stories from people who went through this treatment. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jacob and went to his clinic for my root canal on the day that was designated. My first surprise was when I saw Dr. Jacob for the first time - I had expected an old man (as I was told he was super experienced & for some reason I expected to see an elderly gentleman). Instead I met a charismatic young doctor who was extremely warm and confident!

Dr. Jacob put me at ease in the first few minutes with a very personal conversation, asked me about my problem, did a preliminary examination and provided me a detailed overview of the problem, the process and the cure! He showed me pictures of the problem and what he would do to resolve it in a fairly painless fashion. He even asked me my taste in music and played that while I was getting operated on!

The entire experience which consisted of 2-3 sittings was a total pleasure and relatively painless. I even fell asleep on 2 of these occasions during the process! If I ever felt discomfort the doctor and I had an established protocol where I would warn him and he would stop. I was really surprised that the entire process (which was live on a TV monitor for me to watch) was so painless. It broke the myth in my mind that this is a horribly painful experience and Dr. Jacob worked his magic to prove to me that the process can be relatively simple and straightforward if done the right way with the right skills and the right equipment!

Not that I am looking forward to another root canal, but if I have ever have to go for one, I am glad that I know that it is not the same traumatic experience that I thought it was! And of course it is always a pleasure to be treated by a fantastic doctor with excellent manners and skills to get the job done – painlessly!

Hi Dr.Jacob,

I couldn't have ever imagined a visit to the dentist will be so peaceful. I never felt any pain or discomfort during the entire treatment.
You are a wonderful doctor. I was also very impressed with the amount tools & technology you have at your disposal.

Dear Dr Jacob,

To be honest, I was a little apprehensive when I came to you for my first root canal treatment. I was pleasantly surprised that you handled it so well and I had little or no pain and discomfort. I therefore came back to you for a second one.

I have no hesitation in recommending your work to others. You are very good at what you do. Your staff are pleasant, the clinic is comfortable and clean and the overall experience is very good.

Dear Dr. Siju,

I can say with confidence that the root canal work you performed on me was not only relatively painless, it was easily the most professional and well-executed such procedure I have ever gone through (I have unfortunately had to have 2 previous root-canal procedures).

Credit must be given not only to your own dexterity, but also the cutting-edge technology used which ensures that you do not miss any portion of dead or diseased tissue. It was also gratifying to have a photographic record of the procedure at every stage.

Thank you

I highly recommend Dr. Jacob's clinic for root canals, a seemingly painful procedure. I have spent too much time with dentists for various treatments but the least painful and the most effective by far have been the procedures done by Dr. Jacob. Root Canals are handled with expert care and I am completely at ease about the treatment I am about to receive.

Dr. Siju Jacob uses the latest micro-surgical instruments which give him excellent visibility and access to the root canals so as to achieve outstanding results with minimal pain. Root canals done this way are not the painful, long-drawn-out procedures they used to be.

Hello Doc!
Thank you for being so kind, patient and marvelously efficient - my procedure yesterday was without doubt the most painless and trauma-free I have ever experienced.  This morning, I am as right as rain, hardly any discomfort at all - many, many thanks to you.
 I just can't believe you fixed the problem so neatly, cleanly and painlessly!
I'd like to say it would be lovely to visit your clinic again - but that would be a bit of S & M !!!
My very best wishes and I have no doubt that you will continue to be Bangalore's leading dentist with scores of grateful patients. 

Kind regards,

Lillian Davis
