I’ve been seeing Dr. Patel for a few years now because Vida Dental has provided the best dental care I have experienced. He has always been very honest and straight forward with me, I truly feel like he cares about my health more than he does receiving my money. I also trust his knowledge and advice fully. Everyone else on the staff has also always been very lovely and genuine. I would recommend their services to anyone asking

I want highly recommend Vida Dental family to anyone who needs help with the dental issues. I am the patient of doctor Dhanish and I really appreciate his experience, patience, and attention towards patient’s needs.

Choose Vida Dental and you will be 100 % satisfied with their service!

I highly recommend Vida Dental South. Dr. Patel exudes confidence and compassion. His reassuring manner made for a painless and stress free root canal procedure. The entire staff was kind and accommodating.

Sharon T. from Hazleton, PA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is everything I hope for when I go to the dentist. The office itself is modern, clean, and newly modified for safety in the age of COVID-19. Everyone — everyone! — is professional, personable and caring. They have been skilled in every procedure, and they have been able to successfully ease my phobia of all things dental. I have been a patient for a couple of years now, for routine checkups and for other procedures. I am very satisfied with the excellent care that they have provided. I would give this awesome place 10 stars if I could!

Dr. Patel is one of the best dentists I have been to. He is caring, knowledgeable and intentional about making sure the patient feels cared for and safe. I have been putting off taking my Wisdom teeth out and even though it was a little unpleasant, Dr. Patel made sure that my pain was managed and that I felt safe. Thank you Vida Dental.

Dr. Dhanish Petal and his office staff AR absolutly the most caring and compassionate dentistal team I’ve ever been to, and I have been to A LOT of dental ofices in my life. Growing up as a military brat driving around to lots of places all my life and wearing braces for 4 years I’ve been to a lot of dentist. So I say this from a lot of experience. I am so glad I found him. He gets the job done gets the job done well and makes you feel good about yourself no matter how complicated the procedure is. He and his office staff are there for you the whole time you’re going through it. I have recommended him to friends and family members. Everyone who’s gone to him has just raved about him and I’ve become their new best friend. LOL

Erin B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend Vida Dental after my first visit. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at ease. Dr. Patel was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I instantly trusted him to care for my health. He explains everything in a way that is easy for you to understand and he is realistic about what you really need. He won’t recommend unnecessary procedures but also supports your decision if you want something done for personal cosmetic reasons.

This is a factual review: I had the best cleaning I’ve EVER had with Vida Dental. It was my first visit and the staff was so warm and helpful. The cleaning was thorough and gentle and the hygienist and the doctor were both extremely knowledgeable. They explained the entire process and also answered any questions I had about additional services. I definitely recommend giving them a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Christina Alvarez (Source: Google)


Amazing! The staff is so sweet and knowledgeable, and so patient with my boisterous toddler. I had gone years without going to a dentist due to past experiences with other providers, but Dr.Dhanish is the best! The whole staff goes above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction. I live in Round Rock, but it is definitely worth the drive.

Parth P. from Garland, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’m getting my braces done and have a quite complicated case. The doctors here are highly knowledgeable and are using cutting edge technology. My case requires implants because I have missing teeth these guys are using 3-D guides to place my implants, and I’m excited and confident that Dr. Dhanish can get it done right. Highly recommend going in, they are really friendly and welcoming to everyone!

C W. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’m a baby about the dentist. I put off annual cleanings and appointments for years after too many negative experiences, but I don’t feel anxious at all about follow-up visits to Vida Dental. I have obnoxiously sensitive teeth so I know I’m not the easiest client to see, but Doctor Patel and Art (oral hygienist?) are exceptionally patient and go through the process of explaining the services I need and why I need them. I don’t feel rushed or pressured into purchasing additional items or services, and Doctor Patel focuses on preventative maintenance versus reactive care. I recently went for a cleaning, and Rosie (I think?) was also quite helpful and kind. The waiting room and facilities are clean, and the reception staff are friendly and organized as well. It’s a wonderful place for anyone with reservations about dental care.

I love that they didn’t write my teeth off as useless and try to sell me $14,000 worth of veneers (I have had a couple of other dentists do this right off the bat!). Instead, Vida told me that I had “beautiful teeth” (a.k.a. strong teeth with improving gum health & favorable soft tissue) while also pointing out the problem areas and what we can do to fix those problems. The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly; I would definitely recommend Vida to a friend or two!

Matt H. from Kerrville, TX (Source: Yelp)


Drs Danish Patel and Marcin Bednarski are top notch Dentists. As a fellow dentist I have high expectations for anyone who would work on me or my family. I can easily trust these doctors and their team to give any member of my family the very best. Their skill level and expertise far exceed most general dentists and they are in the top 1 percent in the country. You are in good hands.

Mihir P. from Old East Dallas, Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dhanish and Dr. Bednarski are some of the best dentist I have seen around. As a dentist myself, these 2 make a great team and use top of the line materials and equipment to make sure there dentistry is done to last!!! As a fellow colleague I recommend them for all your dental needs as they have done many hours of continuing education to better treat their patients in one place!

Addie B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had a great first visit with the new dentists behind Vida today. I had enjoyed Dr. Graham, but Dr. Patel was awesome! He took lots of time to walk through how he likes to give dental care, answered all my questions and assuaged some lingering fears that previous dentists had put in my head about teeth clenching and a rash of cavities I had when I was pregnant. All in all, a great (second) first visit! After 8 years at two different dentists who were all too eager to recommend services that I probably didn’t need, I feel much more at home here

Manoj Panicker (Source: Facebook)


The service I receive from Vida Dental is consistently top notch. Dr. Dhanish takes time to chat with his patients, easy to get appointments and friendly staff who work hard on the patients’ behalf to minimize costs. Dr. Dhanish gives me a variety of treatment options and gives me the comparisons and costs. I am very happy with the veneers that Dr. Dhanish installed for me. I also get my teeth cleaned at Vida.

Nicky H. from White Plains, NY (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Patel recently after quite awhile away from a dentist and had a great experience with him and his staff. They were friendly, patient, explained everything clearly and did great work cleaning my teeth, getting things back in tip-top shape. Feels great to have found someone I trust to care for this important aspect of my health. Thanks!

Marian C. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I am very happy with Vida. The place is extremely clean and professional. I have had all positive experiences in my almost 2 years of being a patient there. Maxine and Eunice are especially wonderful! I like being able to listen to Netflix shows while I’m getting my teeth cleaned as it eases my anxiety! There are so many dentists in Austin but you won’t be disappointed if you choose Vida! Plenty of parking too which is always a plus around here!

I am a new client to Vida Dental and can say that right from the start the staff makes you feel very welcomed and is always eager to answer any questions. The location is perfect for any true Austinites who reside in South Austin and the office itself is really kept up with–very clean!!! Dr. Patel and the young lady whom was assisting him throughout the visit were amazing people and I am super stoked to continue to work with them moving forward. Dr. Patel was very honest in his work and made sure to keep me in great hands that care for me rather than the money I might be spending.

Tamir S. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Really can’t say enough good things about my experience here. The staff was very friendly to me throughout my whole visit. Scheduling the appointment was very easy also. Dr. Patel was very kind and informative throughout my visit and gave me great advice on how to keep plaque off and the best approaches to overall dental hygiene. Brittany, the dental hygienist was great and easy to work with as well. I was in and out pretty quick and left feeling better and more confident than before I came in.

Karen R. from South Austin, Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I had been putting off seeing a dentist due to very bad experiences in the past. My last dental exam was over 10 yrs ago. I knew I couldn’t put it off any longer when the pain from wisdom teeth and a cavity went from bothering me monthly to almost every day. I was worried about all the work I needed, pain, cost and being shamed for waiting so long- and of course now would be the time I had to go even with the whole Covid issue. This review is based on my initial new patient visit. They do have Covid/social distancing protocol in place: the waiting room was not packed and there is plexiglas and spot markers where to stand, masks required and hand sanitizer for all to use. The front desk staff was very friendly. The hygienist was sweet, gentle and explained everything. I did not feel talked down to or shamed in any way. The dentist was also very thorough and walked me through everything. My dental plan was explained and estimated costs seemed very fair. I did not feel like they rushed (even though it was on a Friday afternoon) and was very pleasantly surprised with the experience.

So… wife has been here and had a surgery for dental implants, man talk about great service, very professional and also very very nice to her! This office has a lot of great people! I went today and had my teeth cleaned and let me tell you I have never had a better dental cleaning than today! In my past experience I have always been poked with the sharp instrument and it HURTS! She did not hurt me at all! I love this office and will continue with them! They are all amazing! If you are not at this dentist you really should be! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT HERE!!!!

Jessica McG (Source: Google)


They are always really nice and welcoming. No one talks down to me about how I clean (I admit I wasn’t flossing like I really needed to be), they don’t try to force unnecessary work on me, they actually try to help me save money, and care about what I think. I HATE going to the dentist, but it’s not bad here like other offices. I’m always going to be nervous going, but they help to make it a lot more comfortable.

Priya Ghelani (Source: Google)


I’m such a fan of this place. Dr. Patel offered to fix my permanent retainer at a really low cost (the last time I received an estimate was a few months ago, and that person quoted me at $500!). This is an easy-going, chill office and the secretaries, hygienists, and dentists are really easy to work with. They take most insurances and they always do a great job. Dental cleanings are usually kind of uncomfortable, but here not so much! Also Dr. Patel is really nice and the staff never makes me feel uncomfortable. I am definitely planning to come back!

Dolly S. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


My family friend recommended me to Vida Dental after she completed total replacement of her teeth with implants and dentures. I myself was told by another dentist several years ago I needed to remove all my teeth but was afraid. Dr.Dhanish was very patient with me, explained the process, and worked with my Finances. The process was pretty scary but the care provided by him and his team was outstanding and in the end, I am very happy with my implants! I look to do the bottom next year with the Vida Dental team!

Elsí H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Found my new Austin dentist, the staff at Vida Dental are both caring and fun. I went in for my first cleaning recently and was in and out in under an hour! I was impressed with how thorough the staff and Dr. Patel were when explaining what they were doing and how I could maintain my dental health better. Can’t wait for my next visit/ cleaning!

Debra M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I love this Dental Group. They have great doctor’s and staff. Their office is convient to my house. My whole family: kids, grandkids and husband. They make payments easy. They take Medicaid which is a blessing. They replaced my husband tooth to look just like his others. They have a great orthodontic doctor as well. Can say 1feel very comfortable with them. They are always will to work with me as I them. They have been open on Saturdays for emergencies and that has been a blessing. I just really thank God we have terrific doctors and staff like these. They take their time with you like your the only patient in the office, and explain every procedure they do and the risks if any. I hope if you need a Dental Group, THEY will be your pick as well. They make a point to make you feel at home. THANK YOU VIDAL DENTAL FOR EVERYTHING. I have been with them since they opened and WILL NOT ever need another Dental as long as I am above ground. Thanks doctors an staff. And the wonderful, awesome ladies at the front desk. Debra Arnold Meshell

This is also a new location, s o decided to check out if the service is consistent across the brand. Because it is.. Vida Dental is the best group of Dentists in the Central Austin area- hands down. Location- Massive. They handle a ton of patients, but take their time with each one. Dr. Patel is incredibly knowledgeable and hands on with treatment and care. Hard to find dentists in Austin that can deliver that type of Service. Plus it’s easy to get to! Service- they can pretty much do anything from cosmetic to medical. If you are in pain, they can fix ya! If your smile isn’t perfect, they can fix it! Whatever the problem is, should be a reason to come to the dentist (if you don’t right now)! Plus you get some free toothbrush and floss if you come, so you can keep up the fresh clean feel. They also speak Spanish in the office, so bi-lingual approach is great! Next time you need a visit, make a run for VIDA DENTAL!!!!

Front desk assistance was nice and helpful(when I had questions about the info form). Lobby was nice, complimentary water, and coffee. Nice modern set up for the examining rooms, flat screen with Netflix, headphones for long procedures. The Doc and the assistants were very nice and professional. I went in for a check up and a deep cleaning(it’s been years since I’ve last seen a dentist). The doc went over everything that needed to be done, things that need immediate attention and other things that can wait. They go over all the financial stuff with you before they do anything, so this way it won’t stuck with a bill that was more than you were expecting to pay. During the procedure I felt a little discomfort, I informed the assistant and she applied more numbing agent for the pain. She said “we want all our patients to be comfortable” puts my mind at ease to know that. Overall, my experience was really great. I believe I’ve found my new dentist. I already have my next appointment scheduled. I recommend giving this place a try.

I went to Vida Dental for a cleaning. The hygienist discussed the ups and downs of self-care. Typical stuff. She was very thorough – more so than other hygienists. Vida really shines when it comes to the additional services. The dentist checks for signs of cancer that begin in the soft tissue (great bonus) and approaches care from a health-first standpoint. Most dentists I’ve been to seem to be concerned in profit above all else. That was not the impression I got here. I definitely recommend a visit.

Katlynn B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


So, I had moved to Austin and hadn’t gone in to see a dentist in some time. Right before the holidays, on a weekend no less, I had excruciating tooth pain and didn’t know where to turn. So after some research, I sent a them an appointment request. They got back to me right away and even made sure to check in on me until they were able to fit me in, which was super quick! Like many people, I have bad dental anxiety. Not only was everybody there at Vida extremely personable, they made sure I was well-informed and comfortable the entire time. Both of the dentists are top-notch and it’s clear they truly care about their patients and their staff (want a true measure of a business? look at how they treat their own). If there is such a thing as a pleasant dental experience, lol, you’ll find it here. They got me out of pain and back into the holiday spirit – able to enjoy my family and friends for the holidays. There’s no doubt they are my dental practice of choice now. I’m so happy I found them! You will be too! 🙂

Elissa M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I was a bit apprehensive to keep my appointment. Only because the dentists are new & I found out last minute that the dentist I was using moved to another location. After a bad experience at another dental office it took me a long time to find someone I trusted & had good rapport with. I decided to give the new dentist, Dr. Patel, a chance & I liked him a lot! He was down to earth & made me feel very comfortable. His professionalism made me feel confident I was getting the best care.

Minal Patel (Source: Facebook)


Thank you Vida dental for the 5star service! The front desk was really helpful and friendly. I personally dread going to the dentist but Dr. Dhanish was awesome! He has great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable through my dental procedure. Thank you Vida Dental and Dr. Dhanish for your wonderful service.

Dr. Patel and his staff are the best dentists that I have ever been to in my life. And, as a military brat, I have been privileged enough to patronize dentists all over this country. Patient comfort is their #1 priority. It doesn’t matter what procedure you have to get; they are professional, efficient, and above all compassionate. It doesn’t matter what your teeth look like- not one person in that office would judge you. So if insecurity is holding you back, I would recommend Vida Dental. They will change your life.

Priya G. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’m such a fan of this place. Dr. Patel offered to fix my permanent retainer at a really low cost (the last time I received an estimate was a few months ago, and that person quoted me at $500!). This is an easy-going, chill office and the secretaries, hygenists, and dentists are really easy to work with. They take most insurances and they always do a great job. Dental cleanings are usually kind of uncomfortable, but here not so much! Also Dr. Patel is really nice and the staff never makes me feel uncomfortable. I am definitely planning to come back!
