After her first orthodontic visit at 12 years old, Dr. Patel discovered a new world that combined her love for art and health care. She continued volunteering at dental offices and community service events and developed a growing passion for dentistry. Dr. Patel went on to pursue a degree in Biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She then received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
In June of 2015, immediately after dental school, Dr. Patel completed a one-year residency at the Olin E. Teague Veterans Center to pursue an Advanced Education in General Dentistry. Her experience gave her the skills to treat more medically complex patients, perform conscious sedation, and complete dental surgeries. She also provides tooth extractions, places implants, and performs minor periodontal surgeries as a Cedar Park, TX dentist.
Dr. Patel is an active member of the ADA and AGD. In addition, she is passionate about community service and continuing education in fields including sleep medicine, sedation, and the treatment of periodontal disease. Dr. Patel enjoys running, traveling, and spending time with friends and family outside of work.
