COVER
STORY
“God creates. We recreate!”
She started her Maxillofacial Prosthetic
practice in 2010. Dr Mehta says that
Maxillofacial Prosthodontics is the art
and science of providing customized
extra-oral and intraoral prostheses to
individuals living with anatomical
anomalies, such as congenital absence of
a body part amputation from trauma or
loss from disease. She adds, “We at
Unique Aesthetic Clinic aim to provide
these individuals with highly realistic
customized prostheses that will improve
their functional capabilities and social
acceptance, thereby improving their
quality of life.”
Dr Mehta and her expert team of
surgeons create and fit a variety of
prosthetic devices, including prostheses
for the face, upper and lower extremities,
and breasts.
She states, “We also rehabilitate oral
cancer patients with customized intra-
oral prostheses with/without implants
using 3D printing technology.”
Multidisciplinary treatment is provided
to restore the patient's dentofacial
appearance, chewing, speech and
swallowing.
All the services provided are tailor-made
to the patients’ comfort and satisfaction
of the team, making them stand out in the
current cut-throat competition.
Your Smile is Our Driving Force
Dr Mehta’s journey in the surgical
solutions sector is extraordinary. She
completed her BDS in 2005, standing 1st
in her class, and pursued her education to
MDS in Maxillofacial Prosthodontics in
2010, receiving a Gold Medal. She
started teaching at an institute in 2010.
Dr Mehta's confidence extends beyond
initial encounters, impacting every
aspect of life.
Sharing USPs of Unique Aesthetic
Clinic, Dr Mehta says, “Ours is a
state-of-the-art multi-speciality dental
clinic and expertise for patients
through exclusively curated treatment
procedures. Our ideology is to create a
welcoming, warm and relaxing
environment.” A one-stop dental care
clinic, the clinic is where your family
can look forward to each visit with Dr
Mehta and her team.
Where Care Meets the Goals of
Treatment
Dr Mehta adds that their goal is not
just to fix teeth but to improve patients'
overall quality of life.
Best Surgeon: With 19 years in
practising, teaching and touching a
niche market mix of prosthetics and
dentistry, Dr Mehta’s expertise lies in
the fields of Maxillofacial Prosthetics,
Dental Implantology, Full Mouth
Rehabilitation, and Aesthetic Dentistry.
She happens to be one of the very few
Dental experts in Mumbai with an
extraordinary contribution to Dental
research and practice, and she is a
wonderful teacher and guide to many
Dental students.
Telling more about her clinic’s
offerings, Dr Mehta says that since
2005, they’ve satisfactorily served
patients for Routine Dental Care, Child
Dental Care, Orthodontic Treatment,
Smile Makeovers, Root Canals and
Dental Implants. Her clinic offers
complete dental spectrum, with a team
spreading affection and warmth,
making patients feel relaxed and
confident for the treatment offered.
As a Prosthodontist, Dr Mehta proudly
says,
India's Recommended Women Surgeons to Watch in 2024
Appearances often hold
Aimmense power in a world
increasingly obsessed with
first impressions. While the adage
‘don't judge a book by its cover’ rings
true, the undeniable reality is that
looking and feeling your best can
significantly impact self-esteem and
confidence. This is where Dr Manali
Mehta, M.D.S (Mumbai) -
Maxillofacial Prosthodontist, Unique
Aesthetic Clinic, steps in, not just as a
skilled surgeon but as an artist
passionate about bridging the gap
between perceived flaws and a sense of
empowerment.
Dr Mehta recognizes the profound
impact appearance can have on
individuals, especially when dealing
with facial deformities, whether
congenital or acquired. She
understands these concerns are more
than just aesthetic; they can affect
social interactions, professional
opportunities, and overall well-being.
Therefore, her approach goes beyond
technical expertise. Dr Mehta sees
enhancing features and correcting
deformities as an art form. She
prioritizes individual needs and
desires, working closely with each
patient to understand their unique
concerns and aesthetic goals. This
collaborative approach ensures the
results align with facial structure,
personal confidence, and a renewed
sense of self.
In Dr Mehta's hands, facial surgery
becomes more than a procedure; it
becomes a transformative journey. By
combining her artistic vision with
advanced surgical techniques, she
empowers individuals to correct
physical imperfections and regain the
confidence to embrace their true selves.
This resonates with the often-heard
sentiment of ‘first impressions’ because
We at Unique Aesthe c
Clinic aim to provide
these individuals with
highly realis c
customized prostheses
that will improve their
func onal capabili es
and social acceptance,
thereby improving their
quality of life.
Dr Manali Mehta,
M.D.S (Mumbai) -
Maxillofacial Prosthodon st
I strongly believe
‘Healthy Mouth,
Healthy You,’ and
‘Smile is the first thing
people no ce, and a
perfectly healthy smile
raises your face value.
Her continuous education, practice in
the early part of her career and being a
teacher to many budding surgeons
guided Dr Mehta through varied
experiences in a continuously changing
work environment. “Patient concerns
and reviews motivated me to keep
providing the best to my patients in the
best of my capacity, knowledge and
expertise,” she says and continues
updating herself to date, learning new
procedures and techniques by attending
conferences and workshops, national
and internationally to help treat
patients more effectively. Also, as a
teacher, she helped her grow and learn
new avenues. “We as doctors strive
purely on patient satisfaction and
warmth,” says Dr Mehta, whose
leadership style is recognized as a
driving force behind her clinic’s
widespread recognition and popularity.
Fun-filled Treats Meant for Your
Delight
Shedding light on her approach to
leadership and team building within
the organization, she says, “I started
my career as a clinician in 2005 at
Kunj Dental Clinic where I learnt my
basics about private practice, practice
management, teaching assistants and
highest order of patient care.”
The ideology behind her establishing
Unique Aesthetic Clinic was to create a
welcoming, relaxing environment
where your family can look forward to
each visit with her and her team. Along
with her passion towards providing
optimum customized treatment plans to
patients, Dr Mehta has built her niche
and the team from scratch. The age-old
formula of being one with the team as
a leader has lifted her and her
organization to the status it has
achieved. Today, Dr Mehta practices at
three clinical setups in Mumbai and
Navi Mumbai, and at multiple clinics,
she provides consultation.
There are many qualities and values in
Dr Mehta that her patients greatly
admire. Her patients have told her that
they admire her as a whole. From the
first gentle touch, patience, calm
demeanour, and thorough explanation
of procedures to sweet warmth care
provided and aftercare are few of the
qualities they love. Being Consistent
and Persistent are her key values.
Techno-Boosted Dentistry
Being an experienced leader, Dr Mehta
is tech-savvy. She has very positive
opinions on adopting modern
technologies like AI and ML into
dentistry.
According to her, AI and ML can be
valuable tools to assist dental
professionals in multiple stages of
clinical cases. IT is based on evidence
and a data bank for analysis and
solutions. AI can be helpful in
radiographic and optical images-
diagnostic dentistry. They can and are
supportive tools as of date and not a
replacement until the near future.
Dental practitioners can look forward
to AI and ML as supplemental tools to
improve efficiency and accuracy in
diagnosis, treatment planning and
disease outcomes.
Modern surgery has evolved with
accuracy, minimally invasive
techniques, and painless laser
advancements. Dr Mehta shares that
being up to date with recent advances
and keeping up with ever-evolving
techniques and methods and their
application for best results are two of
her major contributions to dentistry.
Pain-free dentistry uses Conscious
sedation for apprehensive patients and
children, Digital Impressions and
digital technology to make patients
comfortable and have less chairside
time for treatment, and 3D printing
technology for Maxillofacial surgery
and prostheses are incorporated in her
practice.
Dr Mehta used 3D printing technology
in 2015 for mandible (Lower jaw)
reconstruction for post-oral cancer
patients and continues to use the same
for precision and accuracy for multiple
extra-oral and intraoral prostheses. She
is pursuing her PhD in “Role of
genomic characterization and somatic
mutations in head and neck cancer,”
which will aid in better and more
predictable treatment for Head and
Neck/Oral Cancer patients.
Erasing Challenges
In the contemporary scenario, every
successful surgeon faces a set of
challenges. Dr Mehta says that the
current market competition and
inflation have affected sourcing
materials for treatments to provide
patients with the best possible minimal
cost.
She adds, “The simple motto that I
have been telling and following in my
life is ‘Keep doing the hard work;
positive results are certain. My work is
my art. No one can take it away from
me. My patients and their results are
proof that pushes me in my weaker
times. It keeps me focused and
undeterred towards my goal.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped
industries globally. When asked how
she and her team navigated those
unprecedented times, Dr Mehta says it
was a bizarre period for people,
personally and professionally. The
medical fraternity, per se, being at the
forefront and continuing to give
treatment and care, has faced the
maximum brunt of the pandemic,
which has been minimally noticed and
appreciated. Although maintaining the
highest safety standards and the
protocols laden by the Government,
she and her team, along with the entire
healthcare fraternity, continued to
provide treatment and care.
The other factor that was majorly
affected was the dental supplementary
items and aids which were imported,
which have exorbitantly increased the
rate, which increased the treatment
timeline along with cost. “However, my
patients have amazed me by being
understanding and tolerant in
explaining the condition. COVID-19
has taught us the value of age-old
practices, which were almost obsolete
due to recent advances in modern
medicine. Adapting and implementing
alternative treatment protocol and
results have helped me better myself
each day at work,” reveals Dr Mehta.
Admirable Perspectives
According to her, surgical procedures
have gained more importance in these
new normal times. Especially in
dentistry, regular dental visits can do
more than keep your smile attractive –
they can also tell dentists a lot about
your overall health, including whether
or not you may be at risk of chronic
disease.
New research suggests that your
mouth's health mirrors your body's
condition as a whole. BDS stands for
Bachelor Dental Surgery. In dental
studies, surgery is the treatment plan's
only mainstay. From providing basic
dental care to specialized treatment,
surgery is the crux. Recent
advancements in Robotics, AI-based
machine learning, and 3D technology
will aid in the precision of disease
diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment
choice.
Dr Mehta's advice is helpful for all
those youths who want to pursue
dentistry as their career. She says that
they should take up the course
wholeheartedly and dedicatedly.
Staying focused on providing ethical
treatment at the best cost is the advice.
It is a career that provides plenty of
rewards and challenges and an
opportunity to help people and make
communities healthier.
“Especially as women, in today’s era,
we are standing head to head on
gender roles at any aspects of work
and life.” All they have to do is accept
the fact and move forward with their
career. No looking back and stopping
once you alight this flight.
Fantastic Future of a Healthy You
On envision scaling her clinic’s
operations and offerings, Dr Mehta
says, “I strongly believe, ‘Healthy
Mouth, Healthy You.’and ‘Smile is the
first thing people notice, and a
perfectly healthy smile raises your face
value.”
Good oral health enables you to
functionally perform as a human being
(i.e., speaking, smiling, smelling,
eating) and is also important for
communication, human relationships
and financial prosperity. Poor dental
health has serious consequences,
including painful, disabling, and costly
health conditions.
Dr Mehta aims to offer dental
treatment and prostheses to patients to
the best of her ability and at an
affordable cost to improve the overall
well-being and quality of life of her
patients. “Following my ideology and
motto, we at Unique Aesthetic Clinic
have achieved success and will
continue and stand by the same always
and forever,” she concludes.
So, while ‘don't judge a book by its
cover’ remains a noble ideal,
Dr Manali Mehta acknowledges the
reality that appearances influence our
journey. By blending artistry with
medical expertise, she empowers
individuals to rewrite their narratives,
not just on the surface but also within
the depths of their confidence and self-
worth.

by Dr Manali, and I cannot thank

from someone; my words of
compliments are based on my
personal experience when she
performed dental implant surgery
for me about four years back,
giving new life to my oral system.”
Ÿ “We put up in Malad, yet we
decided to go to Koperkhairne and
visited Dr Manali Mehta with a
reference from a friend. We were
highly impressed with the way the
treatment was explained to us. We
got the treatment done by her, and
behold, it was fantastic work; we
were overwhelmed with the
mastery of the treatment. It has
been over three years, and there are
still no problems or complaints
about the treatment. It is said that
when it comes to a doctor or a
lawyer, always go the best, and that
is what we have done. I would not
hesitate to go again if required or
recommend her for dental
treatment.”
Ÿ “I appreciate Dr Manali Mehta,
dentist, for her patience and care
towards her patient. Her dedication
and application to her job make her
one of the best dentists; I
enthusiastically and strongly
recommend her.”

What does it take to become the most
recommended healthcare leader, especially a
surgeon, and if the person is a woman?
You would say that is a no-brainer. Of course, exceptional
surgical expertise, leadership skills, decision-making,
empathy and communication, and a commitment to
continuous learning.
However, I would point out that you haven't considered the
person's gender. Because if the person is a woman, even if
of the calibre of , they have to
Dr Prriya Eshpuniyani
~Overcome a Rigid Gender Bias: The field of surgery has
a history of being male-dominated. Women surgeons have
always been expected to work harder to prove their skills
and gain recognition.
~Work-Life Balance: In modern times, surgery is a
demanding career. Women surgeons, especially those with
families, must always find strategies to balance work and
personal life.
~Mentorship and Networking: Finding mentors who
understand the challenges faced by women in surgery can
be invaluable. Building a strong network with other female
surgeons can provide support and opportunities for
collaboration.

earning her a reputation as a true pioneer and luminary in
her field.
Dr Prriya Eshpuniyani stands as a beacon of excellence in
thoracic surgery and surgical oncology, carving a
distinguished path through her unparalleled expertise and
unwavering commitment to patient care. As a Consultant
Thoracic Surgeon, her contributions have not only shaped

standards of care in India.
With a formidable academic background and extensive
training, Dr Eshpuniyani has emerged as a leading authority
in her field. Her journey through the corridors of medical
education has been marked by dedication, perseverance,

A Saga of Strongest Emergence

strongest emergence in the realm of thoracic surgery. As the
country's first woman certified thoracic surgeon, she has
navigated challenges and broken barriers in a patriarchal
society to establish herself as a trailblazer in her field.
Despite facing initial resistance and scepticism from peers,
patients, and caregivers, Dr Prriya's unwavering
determination and resilience have paved the way for
acceptance and recognition. Collaborating closely with
pulmonologists, medical oncologists, and a
multidisciplinary team of physiotherapists and nutritionists,
she provides comprehensive treatment for all thoracic
pathologies, ensuring holistic patient care.

a leading oncology centre, where she has made significant
contributions since 2017.

compassion, being available for any emergency and able
to explain the process of the treatment to the patient in
their language in simple terms and regular, timely

that, even today, thoracic surgery is a different ball game
and needs to be stressed more to corporates unaware of the
levels of expertise required to do major thoracic surgeries.
Constant endeavour to keep stressing this point is the major
challenge, and "That's what our driving force is."

(IASO) further attest to her standing within the medical
community. As a member of these prestigious societies, she
remains at the forefront of advancements in her field,
driving innovation and excellence in patient care.
The Transformative Power of a Doctor
In her advice to budding surgeons, especially women, who
aspire to venture into the surgical space, Dr Prriya says,
"Come prepared for a long struggle. Stay focused. You may
be required to work harder than your male
contemporaries—do it. Take this branch only if you are
passionate about it. It has been proven, even in the
literature, that patients operated by women surgeons have
better short-term and long-term outcomes. That should be
the motivation and inspiration."

power of passion, perseverance, and dedication in pursuing
excellence in healthcare. As she continues to forge ahead,
her saga inspires aspiring medical professionals and is a
testament to the power of resilience, determination, and
unwavering dedication in the face of adversity.

*****Yojana Shetty, "Thank you for everything you
have done for me and my family! You are a very good
human with a beautiful heart, a selfless, wonderful,
caring doctor who is always friendly and comforting
to your patients. A very good counsellor. Keep
smiling and keep doing what you do so well. You
truly make a difference in the medical field."
***** Pravin Kamble, "Initially, we were out of hope
that when some other Surgeon advised that your
mother needs some other treatment instead of big and
critical surgery, that is "Gatric pullup surgery", while
other treatments like oesophagus dilation was not
very effective which we were doing since one year.
Then, some Gastro surgeons suggested my mother
continue with a Jejunostomy feeding tube or go with
big surgery, which may or may not be successful. But
one quote says, "God is always with us, guiding us
through every step of our journey, and suddenly sends
person like Angel., and that Angel is nothing but "Dr
Prriya Eshpuniyani." When we met them for the first
time, they advised that this big surgery is possible
with lots of positive benefits more than dilation and
JT Feeding tube, and then finally, the Doctor
accomplished this surgery successfully. After this big
surgery done by Dr Prriya, I can simply say they are
truly life savers, LEGEND, have kind-hearted
personalities, are very careful and strict with patient
care, and are neat. Now, My mother can eat orally
and is very happy, which is only due to Dr Prriya.,
and I must recommend this Doctor to others. Lastly,
five stars are not enough for you., but it must be more
than five stars, that's it."
***** Jitendra Mali, "I would like to thank Dr Prriya
Eshpuniyani, Madam. She is a Thoracic Surgeon and
Surgical Oncologist in Navi Mumbai. She is a trained
VATS and Robotic Thoracic and Onco Surgeon. God
has sent a gift on earth for the patients in the form of
Dr Prriya Madam. My father, Mr Jagdish, was
diagnosed with some major lung disease. It was a
very critical case. But, Dr Prriya Madam has done
this surgery very sharply and given new life to my
father. This is the new life of my father after surgery.
Now, my father is living a new life with us. Thank you
so much for all that you do for your patients.
The world needs more doctors and humans like you.
Once again, thanks to Dr Prriya Madam and her
team, all doctors, ambulance drivers, nurses, sister,
ward boy and all ground staff…. "
***** Nazia Abidi, "I met Dr Prriya at Juhu
Criticare for Tracheal Tumour Surgery, and instantly,
I was relieved that my case was in her hands. A
doctor who knows the best option for her Patient,
that was my impression of her. From the 1st day of
consultation till now, when I am recovering post-
surgery, she has been an amazing support along with
being an amazing Doctor. Every step was explained.
A thorough professional, Dr Prriya."
***** Pappy Patel, "Dr Prriya is truly an angel.
Thank you so so so much for being extremely caring
and considerate during this hard time for my thyroid
cancer. Her bedside manners are so professional, and
you deserve a standing ovation for answering all of
our concerns/questions. She took the time to listen
and hear me out. She is really a blessing to this

  • 15. Her continuous education, practice in the early part of her career and being a teacher to many budding surgeons guided Dr Mehta through varied experiences in a continuously changing work environment. “Patient concerns and reviews motivated me to keep providing the best to my patients in the best of my capacity, knowledge and expertise,” she says and continues updating herself to date, learning new procedures and techniques by attending conferences and workshops, national and internationally to help treat patients more effectively. Also, as a teacher, she helped her grow and learn new avenues. “We as doctors strive purely on patient satisfaction and warmth,” says Dr Mehta, whose leadership style is recognized as a driving force behind her clinic’s widespread recognition and popularity. Fun-filled Treats Meant for Your Delight Shedding light on her approach to leadership and team building within the organization, she says, “I started my career as a clinician in 2005 at Kunj Dental Clinic where I learnt my basics about private practice, practice management, teaching assistants and highest order of patient care.” The ideology behind her establishing Unique Aesthetic Clinic was to create a welcoming, relaxing environment where your family can look forward to each visit with her and her team. Along with her passion towards providing optimum customized treatment plans to patients, Dr Mehta has built her niche and the team from scratch. The age-old formula of being one with the team as a leader has lifted her and her organization to the status it has achieved. Today, Dr Mehta practices at three clinical setups in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, and at multiple clinics, she provides consultation. There are many qualities and values in Dr Mehta that her patients greatly admire. Her patients have told her that they admire her as a whole. From the first gentle touch, patience, calm demeanour, and thorough explanation of procedures to sweet warmth care provided and aftercare are few of the qualities they love. Being Consistent and Persistent are her key values. Techno-Boosted Dentistry Being an experienced leader, Dr Mehta is tech-savvy. She has very positive opinions on adopting modern technologies like AI and ML into dentistry. According to her, AI and ML can be valuable tools to assist dental professionals in multiple stages of clinical cases. IT is based on evidence and a data bank for analysis and solutions. AI can be helpful in radiographic and optical images- diagnostic dentistry. They can and are supportive tools as of date and not a replacement until the near future. Dental practitioners can look forward to AI and ML as supplemental tools to improve efficiency and accuracy in diagnosis, treatment planning and disease outcomes. Modern surgery has evolved with accuracy, minimally invasive techniques, and painless laser advancements. Dr Mehta shares that being up to date with recent advances and keeping up with ever-evolving techniques and methods and their application for best results are two of her major contributions to dentistry. Pain-free dentistry uses Conscious sedation for apprehensive patients and children, Digital Impressions and digital technology to make patients comfortable and have less chairside time for treatment, and 3D printing technology for Maxillofacial surgery and prostheses are incorporated in her practice. Dr Mehta used 3D printing technology in 2015 for mandible (Lower jaw) reconstruction for post-oral cancer patients and continues to use the same for precision and accuracy for multiple extra-oral and intraoral prostheses. She is pursuing her PhD in “Role of genomic characterization and somatic mutations in head and neck cancer,” which will aid in better and more predictable treatment for Head and Neck/Oral Cancer patients. Erasing Challenges In the contemporary scenario, every successful surgeon faces a set of challenges. Dr Mehta says that the current market competition and inflation have affected sourcing materials for treatments to provide patients with the best possible minimal cost. She adds, “The simple motto that I have been telling and following in my life is ‘Keep doing the hard work; positive results are certain. My work is my art. No one can take it away from me. My patients and their results are proof that pushes me in my weaker times. It keeps me focused and undeterred towards my goal.” The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped industries globally. When asked how she and her team navigated those unprecedented times, Dr Mehta says it was a bizarre period for people, personally and professionally. The medical fraternity, per se, being at the forefront and continuing to give treatment and care, has faced the maximum brunt of the pandemic, which has been minimally noticed and appreciated. Although maintaining the highest safety standards and the
  • 16. protocols laden by the Government, she and her team, along with the entire healthcare fraternity, continued to provide treatment and care. The other factor that was majorly affected was the dental supplementary items and aids which were imported, which have exorbitantly increased the rate, which increased the treatment timeline along with cost. “However, my patients have amazed me by being understanding and tolerant in explaining the condition. COVID-19 has taught us the value of age-old practices, which were almost obsolete due to recent advances in modern medicine. Adapting and implementing alternative treatment protocol and results have helped me better myself each day at work,” reveals Dr Mehta. Admirable Perspectives According to her, surgical procedures have gained more importance in these new normal times. Especially in dentistry, regular dental visits can do more than keep your smile attractive – they can also tell dentists a lot about your overall health, including whether or not you may be at risk of chronic disease. New research suggests that your mouth's health mirrors your body's condition as a whole. BDS stands for Bachelor Dental Surgery. In dental studies, surgery is the treatment plan's only mainstay. From providing basic dental care to specialized treatment, surgery is the crux. Recent advancements in Robotics, AI-based machine learning, and 3D technology will aid in the precision of disease diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment choice. Dr Mehta's advice is helpful for all those youths who want to pursue dentistry as their career. She says that they should take up the course wholeheartedly and dedicatedly. Staying focused on providing ethical treatment at the best cost is the advice. It is a career that provides plenty of rewards and challenges and an opportunity to help people and make communities healthier. “Especially as women, in today’s era, we are standing head to head on gender roles at any aspects of work and life.” All they have to do is accept the fact and move forward with their career. No looking back and stopping once you alight this flight. Fantastic Future of a Healthy You On envision scaling her clinic’s operations and offerings, Dr Mehta says, “I strongly believe, ‘Healthy Mouth, Healthy You.’and ‘Smile is the first thing people notice, and a perfectly healthy smile raises your face value.” Good oral health enables you to functionally perform as a human being (i.e., speaking, smiling, smelling, eating) and is also important for communication, human relationships and financial prosperity. Poor dental health has serious consequences, including painful, disabling, and costly health conditions. Dr Mehta aims to offer dental treatment and prostheses to patients to the best of her ability and at an affordable cost to improve the overall well-being and quality of life of her patients. “Following my ideology and motto, we at Unique Aesthetic Clinic have achieved success and will continue and stand by the same always and forever,” she concludes. So, while ‘don't judge a book by its cover’ remains a noble ideal, Dr Manali Mehta acknowledges the reality that appearances influence our journey. By blending artistry with medical expertise, she empowers individuals to rewrite their narratives, not just on the surface but also within the depths of their confidence and self- worth.
