I had my arch and alignment correction done for an overbite at age of 25 and Dr. Tushar is one of the best doctors I could have met for lingual braces. What is interesting is that he made the changes without extracting any teeth using the latest technique (at that point) which was great in itself! He was also available for queries in spite of his busy schedule, would accommodate an appointment at the nearest clinic when I moved residences and even now after 4 yrs of treatment completion he is still available to speak, finds time for me whenever I am in Mumbai, no matter how short a notice or makes sure somebody is there to attend the issues, queries or do a simple maintenance check-up. During the treatment he explains every step with you and does not try to "sell" unnecessary cosmetic changes without discussion or giving you a frank opinion of the need for it. The biggest plus with Dr. Tushar is that you have an extended support for a long period of time and that is big, big comfort factor for something as delicate as dental care. He is my 'go-to-guy' for dental related issues no matter which part of the world I live in and I would take up his recommendations without a doubt!Shobana Jayaraman Software consultant - presently residing in Canada
I started of my aviation career as a international cabin crew with Air Atlanta Icelandic based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Although confident about my job I was always under confident and conscious about my smile. Being a cabin crew we are not allowed to wear visible braces... when I got to know about Invisible braces I was ecstatic and keen to go for it. Dr. Tushar Hegde was the first and last and reliable choice for me... After my first appointment with him he encouraged me to go for it as he also diagnosed that I suffer from Deep bite... i was based in Saudi and my visit to India were always unscheduled. In spite of all this hindrance he was optimistic and as always super confident of the results of lingual braces... I owe a lot to him for inducing a new life long confidence in me... All my above comments will be justified if Dr. Tushar shares my after and before pics with all... God bless you... Your braces actually did a world of good to my confidence... I am so comfortable with myself after your treatment... Thanks for everything.Sandeep Aviation industry - presently residing in Dubai
My son Ahaan had braces at the age of 12 not very happy initially I thought he was too young but Dr. Tushar was completely convinced otherwise, the treatment got completed in a year which I thought was a miracle, the before and after pics are enough to say how skilled Dr. Tushar is. Ahaan was very comfortable with him he would explain every step accurately. My friend's and family too are happy to see Ahaan with lovely smile. It was great experience. Thanks Dr. Tushar.Ahaan Student
When I decided to go for the Ortho treatment, I cinsulted many Orthodontics but none of them had confidence to do Lingual Ortho with molar extraction. Finally Dr. Tushar showed faith and courage and now after my treatment everyone is astonished to see my complete, different, admiring look. My relatives who are layman wondered whether I have done any kind of facial plastic surgery. People don't recognise me after the treatment. They have a common question "Is this the same Rohini". Dr. Tushar has done a fabulous job due to which I have a reason to flaunt my smile... I owe him my smile... Thanks Dr. Tushar.Dr Rohini Singh Doctor

approach. Dr Tushar was a painless orthodontist which is one of the things that I was always happy to go to him for my follow-ups.
I still recollect the day I visited him and was assured for a huge transformation in my smile without changing any lifestyle. I had undergone an invisible braces treatment for 2 years as I used to visit him every 6-8 weeks as I was shuttling between Mumbai and Dubai in the course of my treatment .
Dr Tushar was always there with solutions in case I had any difficulties and was very supportive. They say “Smile is a curve that sets everything right”. Thank you Dr. Tushar for setting everything right for me.

I always felt awkward about my teeth and I never thought it ever had a solution. At that time my sister was going through her treatment and through her reference I visited Dr. Tushar who gave me assurance and hope that he will fix the gap and re-align my teeth. I was advised a treatment of 11 months and within 3 months I could start seeing the change. I was amazed at the results, there was a massive change in the way I looked. Everyone who met me complimented me and I started feeling good about myself. I feel so good about the way my teeth is aligned which looks flawless. Even my jaw line was rectified drastically. Everywhere I went I was told how good looking I have become and would hear this from everyone “Have you done something to your face?” People compliment me for my “Colgate smile” and I solely give the credit to Dr. Tushar for his brilliant treatment. He is one of the best Doctors I have met and I would recommend him to every single person. Thank you Dr. Tushar for your excellent treatment and making me a super confident person.

Dr. Tushar Hegde: What can I say about him? Not only does he straighten teeth that changes his patients smile forever but it actually changes a person's life. It helps them bring more self confidence to look pretty and present themselves in a confident manner.
He is a very ethical, highly skilled and experienced orthodontist, who has provided guidance to a lot of Budding dentists. Very gentle and one of the few lingual orthodontist in India who has pioneered the new technology of lingual braces. I will be grateful to him forever for changing my smile for the better :).
I've always dreaded going to doctors, specially dentist and orthodontist because of some awful experiences with them. I was asked to wear braces when I was in early college by never had to courage to go ahead. Finally after many years, I met Dr. Tushar. It was hard for me to put my faith in him as well, pestering him with millions of questions, but in a blink of eye my braces were on! I didn't even realize when the entire process began and got over, Dr. Tushar is that skilled. In a year’s time, my treatment was done and I am now able to smile from not just my right profile but facing the camera directly. His skill, expertise, knowledge, and even basic yet the most important thing like cleanliness makes him the best Orthodontist. Thank you Dr. Tushar! I'm can proudly boast about you and your work!Priyanka Menon
