We are excited to welcome Dr. Bhakti Patel to our Providence Dental Spa family this summer. She is a recent dental graduate of the Dental College of Georgia. Her passion and enthusiasm will be a breath of fresh air to our office. The comfort of patients is often directly connected to a familiarity and relationship with their dentist, so we wanted to introduce Dr. Patel and give patients a glimpse to get to know her.

Dr. Patel’s Dental Journey

Originally from India, Dr. Patel moved to the United States when she was 11. She grew up with her close knit family in Lawrenceville, GA. She was drawn to dentistry because of it being one of the only medical fields that allows a doctor to examine, diagnose, and treat, all in one appointment. Dr. Patel is passionate about the physical and mental transformation that occurs through oral rehabilitation. She also loves being part of a patient’s journey to improve and reveal their smile. 

Dr. Patel completed her undergraduate studies in chemistry and Spanish at the University of Georgia before earning her DMD at the Dental College of Georgia. While attending school, she actively participated in organizations encouraging the success of multicultural students and women in the dentistry field, such as The Hispanic Student Dental Association, American Association for Women Dentists, Hispanic Dental Association, Multicultural Student Association, etc. She also holds her professional membership in the American Dental Association. Dr. Patel’s diverse background gives her a unique perspective and ability to connect with patients from a variety of backgrounds. She currently speaks four languages (English, Spanish, Hindi, and Gujarati), which is very helpful for communicating with our patient base. 

With a constantly hungry mind and desire to learn, Dr. Patel constantly explores the latest advancements in dentistry to ensure that she can give the best care to her patients. Her enthusiasm and fervor is contagious to those working around her. 

Outside of work, she enjoys singing and trying out new baking recipes and figuring out how to make them healthier. Whenever she has time, Dr. Patel volunteers her time with charitable causes, such as Clinica Latina and Equality Clinic.

Dr. Patel deeply connected with our commitment to patient comfort and she will make a great addition to our team. Welcome, Dr. Patel! Your enthusiasm and dental talent will have such a positive impact on our patients!
