"Tarun is an absolutely fantastic surgeon. He has been treating patients privately under my referral from my two surgeries since the beginning of this year and has delivered nothing but exceptional results and an incredibly high standard of patient centred care. Tarun has clearly demonstrated his skill working with even the most complex of extractions as well as a whole range of oral pathology and sedation cases ranging from surgical extractions of wisdom teeth to full mouth clearance. I would highly recommend this confident and patient centred professional to any patient or colleague."
