Dr. Patel is nothing short of a miracle worker. He is exceptionally proficient in all aspects of Dentistry. He is the only dentist I trust. After relocating to Jacksonville last year, my husband and I find that we would rather drive the 2.5 hours down to Winter Park Dental than to risk trusting another dentist. He is not only highly competent but also empathetically aware of his patient’s comfort during procedures. I would recommend Dr. Patel and his staff to anyone. I found them through my insurance’s website by chance, and it turned out to be such a blessing. I have been terrified of dentists due to various traumatic experiences as a kid. Dr. Patel is patent, understanding, and compassionate. At the same time, he is real, won’t candy-coat your issues, and won’t stop until he gets to a solution that works for you. His office is modern and uses the latest advanced technologies, which help to alleviate stress and anxiety. Additionally, this is definitely a great dentist for anyone who has a fear of dentists. His staff will hold your hand when you are scared. They are patient with you and will go at a pace you are comfortable with. Oh, and Ms. Amber, the lovely lady that sits behind the counter as you walk in, I love her. She will go to the moon and back for every soul that comes in, providing you with helpful information, scheduling convenient appointments, and easing your dental anxieties. Treat her well. I genuinely can’t speak highly enough about these beautiful people. They are amazing. If it weren’t for them, I never would be who I am today, and I am not exaggerating. When I first was a patient, I was so terrified that I would often wait until it was too late to save my tooth, and extraction was the only solution. My problematic teeth were crooked, stained, chipped, and I had several gaps. Now, several root canals, crowns, and bridges later, my smile looks better than ever. Increased self-esteem led to a recent weight loss of over 60 pounds, and I look damn good. I love taking pictures with my kids and husband now. Something I was never able to enjoy before. Sincerely, if you are struggling with your self-esteem, or are just having anxiety about getting a tooth fixed that has been nagging you, stop in and see Patel. You will be so thankful you did. Life is too short to hide behind a closed-lip smile.
