Located at 40 W. 73rd Avenue in Merrillville, the friendly and professional staff at Excel Dental Studio makes patient comfort and convenience their first priority.
Extended evening hours Mondays and Thursdays to 7 p.m. ensure that patients do not have to miss work.
Dr. Manoj Bahl believes in providing as many services as possible in house rather than referring cases, including implants and root canals, out to specialists.
Excel Dental Studio also offers clear braces, complex cosmetic surgeries and the Smile in a Day procedure.
“Patients have their teeth removed, implants placed and leave with a full set of teeth and a smile,” Dr. Bahl said. “A patient several weeks ago was literally crying in the chair out of joy because she couldn’t remember what it was like to have teeth in the back to chew and she got the smile back she had in her 30’s or 20’s.”
Excel Dental has incorporated the use of laser dentistry for fillings and periodontal procedures, which can eliminate the need for an anesthetic injection. Dr. Bahl said this is especially helpful for pediatric patients.
“It works for adults too,” Dr. Bahl said.
Other services include the use of noise canceling headphones, neck warmers and free Wi-Fi.
“Some patients don’t like the sound of the drill,” Dr. Bahl said. “It is just these little things which make our patients feel more comfortable and more at home.”
Bahl says his goal for his practice is to provide the highest quality of care.
“I give my patients options here whether you are 80 or 41,” Dr. Bahl said. “I think that is what separates us from other offices.”
Dr. Bahl believes in giving back to the community. He recently awarded a $1000 scholarship to a patient who is studying engineering at Purdue University. During Breast Cancer Awareness month in October and Diabetes Awareness month in November, Dr. Bahl is donating the proceeds from Velscope oral cancer screenings to breast cancer and diabetes research foundations.
