    Chesa company- Worst service given by this company. I prefer everyone not to buy any dental chair or instruments of this company. They don’t provide after sales service. You will ran from pillar to post for your things done. Very poor service. My dental chair is not working properly for last 1 year and they are not even replacing the parts. There is no one to whom we can ask for service..
