Dr. Patel was born and raised in Northern California. She relocated several years ago to open her dental practice in The Valley of The Sun. Having earned her undergraduate degree at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), she returned to Northern California to complete her dental degree at University of the Pacific Dental School, the only accelerated 3-year dental program in the United States. To further her skills and expertise, Dr. Patel continued on to get an advanced education in general dentistry at Texas A&M’s Baylor College of Dentistry. Not stopping there, Dr. Patel advanced further still, earning the prestigious position of Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD). This is a distinguished accomplishment which only approximately 7% of dentists have earned nation-wide.
Dr. Patel finds great joy practicing in Phoenix. She considers it an honor to treat her valued regular patients, as well as her and her staff’s families for all of their dental needs. Her philosophy is simple- to treat others the way you want to be treated. You can see this philosophy shine through in both her personal life and in her practice. Her energy and charisma are contagious, making visits to the office fun and enjoyable.
Currently, Dr. Patel is the mother of two young and energetic boys that keep her on her toes! Her husband, a gastroenterologist (GI), also practices in the valley. As a family, they enjoy traveling and spending time together. Dr. Patel’s hobbies include watching and participation in sporting events (Go Cardinals! Go Suns!), reading, and socializing with her friends. Both Dr. Patel and her husband are “foodies”, so if you know of a good restaurant, make sure to let her know!
