Hi. I am Dr. Lakhotia, a dentist here in New Delhi, India. I love that my job gives me the opportunity to improve the smile of my patients. I find it very satisfying to treat or prevent potential complications or diseases that can result when dental problems are not dealt with.
I did my 5 year B.D.S. course (bachelor of dental surgery) at the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences in New Delhi, and am registered to practice dentistry here in New Delhi. I work in a private dentist’s office where I diagnose and treat dental problems.
Part of my training to become a dentist included taking various core medical courses. In fact, I have a real interest in other areas of medicine, and enjoy writing articles related to health. Writing these articles gives expression to my creative side, plus the research necessary to write these articles is but another way to help me stay up-to-date with current medical thought.
It is my hope that my articles will be of help to my readers. With most medical problems, early detection and better understanding of the problem improves the prognosis and chance of successful treatment. Concerning these articles on constipation, the saying is definitely true: “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure”.
During my free time, I enjoy the distraction of being a webmaster and building websites. I have put together ecommerce sites that sell things like eyeglasses, contact lenses, sunglasses and dental materials. The income from my web pursuits helps subsidise the limited income that a newly trained dentist makes here in India.
