Though he never thought he would become a doctor, Dr. Patel was fascinated by the art of engineering and science, and he found that his engineering background equipped him to practice dentistry more precisely. He completed his DDS at the prestigious University of Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. He prioritizes minimally-invasive dental treatment, preventative dentistry, and patient education. His practice philosophy is centered around educating patients about their oral health—how and why things break down, how to best restore decay, and, most importantly, how to make teeth last for a lifetime. He believes that if you can see better, you can treat better, which is why he uses microscope technology for every dental procedure.
Dr. Patel was hand-picked by Dr. Larry Ford (previous owner of the practice) from one of many dentists to continue his legacy forward. Dr. Patel is looking forward to continuing the fantastic care that Dr. Ford has provided to the community for over 43 years. Dr. Patel and his team are committed to listening to patients in order to really understand their concerns and long-term goals. His treatment recommendations are practical, attainable, and grounded in evidence based on dental research. He is dedicated to creating a WOW experience for every patient.
In his free time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his wife, Grishma Zaveri DDS, and their two sons. They like to travel, hike, experience new cuisines, and spend time with their family and friends. Dr. Patel is in the midst of a spirited campaign to convince his wife to adopt a puppy!
