Dr. Patel was inspired by his grandfather who was a physician. He knew he wanted to be in the medical field from a young age because it would give him the ability to positively change people’s lives. He decided that dentistry would give him the best chance to follow this passion while also allowing him to dedicate plenty of time to his family. These days, he could not be happier with his decision!
Dr. Patel’s dental training started in his native India, where he received a Bachelor of Dental Science degree from the Government Dental College in Ahmedabad. After making his way to the U.S., he eventually graduated from Boston University with his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Since then, he has dedicated much of his free time to continuing education, completing courses focused on implant surgery, bone grafting, and Invisalign. He has also trained with the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) to provide minimal oral sedation.
Dr. Patel stays on top of the latest breakthroughs in dental technology and research by being a part of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
