“Live healthy, smile healthy” is Dr. Patel’s motto. He and his staff believe that providing the best quality dental care, teamed with amazing patient care and service is his recipe for success.
Dr. Patel graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in 2006 and has been practicing the art of dentistry for 10 years. He opened his current practice, Active Dental, in Las Colinas seven years ago and proudly continues to provide customized services for each patient. He focuses on individualized treatment and creates a healthy balance of what the patient needs and wants. In his comfortably appointed office, patients are seated and treated quickly with state-of-the-art equipment and small luxuries that make dental visits a little less intimidating. All dental chairs have high-definition television monitors, streaming Pandora and Netflix, and heated blankets, to name a few.
Dr. Patel explained that over the last 10 years, dentistry has evolved tremendously. While it used to be a practice where you fixed a problem using a short-term , temporary solution—an example being a quick-patch filling lasting only a few years—today long-term solutions are the norm. “The care is preventive,” he said. Dental materials have also evolved. Low-dose digital X-rays are now standard practice. According to Dr. Patel you can “say goodbye to the gooey molds that make most of you gag. This year we will be adding digital impressions,” he announced. Digital impressions perform the same job, but a camera is used to take pictures and measurements of your teeth.
Dr. Patel feels it is crucial for his staff to be current and knowledgeable in the latest advancements in the field of dentistry. He and his staff are members of the Seattle Study Club, Inc., offering interactive educational programs and discussions on the latest developments in dentistry.
Dr. Patel wants everyone to be able to afford high-quality dental care. For those patients who are uninsured, he offers a Smile Savings Plan. For more information and a video tour of his office, please refer to his website.
Although Dr. Patel is a preferred Invisalign provider and performs cosmetic dental procedures, he prefers to concentrate on the general health of your teeth. According to Dr. Patel, “The health of your teeth is vital to your overall health, and we want to focus on overall total health.” If anyone knows about total health, it is Dr. Patel. In five hours he completed the Spartan Beast Race, similar to the Mud Run, with 14 miles of weight lifting, running, and wall climbing. He also completed the Tough Mudder and has been white-water rafting, skydiving, and ziplining. A huge Dallas Mavericks fan, he has season tickets to the games. Married for three years, he and his wife, Hetal, have made their home in Las Colinas for the past 10 years and are proud members of the community. His goal for the future is to expand to his own building and bring on an associate to train, mentor, and grow with the practice.[one_half]
