Dr. Amit M. Patel earned his Bachelor in Science (BS) degree in Psychology and Biology as well as his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Dr. Patel furthered his graduate training by earning his Certificate in Periodontics from Indiana University School of Dentistry, while concurrently earning his Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) degree along with a minor in Oral Pathology. Throughout his educational career, Dr. Patel held numerous leadership positions and presided over several committees. He has also been involved in various research projects which have led to several publications, and has presented his findings at both the national and international level.
The training that Dr. Patel has received has given him a wide range of experience in treating advanced periodontal disease, placement of dental implants, bone regenerative procedures, as well as in periodontal plastic surgery/cosmetic procedures. Dr. Patel offers IV sedation for the comfort of the patient and to relieve any anxiety that one may have. His goal is to provide the best treatment possible to satisfy the patient’s needs and desires, as he believes that an ‘ideal’ smile is not what is seen in magazines and in textbooks, it is what the patient believes is perfect in his or her own eyes.
Dr. Patel is an active member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Dental Association, and the Texas Dental Association. He is also a Director of the local Seattle Study Club, a prestigious organization that currently has over 40 doctors from the DFW Metroplex as members.
Dr. Patel was raised in Bloomfield Hills, MI. He lived in Austin, TX for some time and is excited to be back in the state of Texas. His future goals include continuing to treat patients in private practice, earning his Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree, as well as becoming a part-time faculty member at the Baylor College of Dentistry.
