From start to finish Dr Rana Muwahid was just so knowledgeable and kind. I was between both Palm and Umm Suqeim Branch due to moving house and both clinics are impeccably clean and inviting. Every piece of equipment is state of the art, no expense is spared - I really feel like I had a 5 star service. I had a lot of over crowding due to wisdom teeth that had come through, now they’re perfectly straight. Thank you so much for giving back my smile! XJade Ellen
