Dr. Patel was born and raised in Bedford, England. As a teenager, she moved to Houston, TX with her family. It took some time to get used to life in a new country, but she soon grew to love her new home and all the opportunities it had to offer. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Houston and went on to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. After practicing as a general dentist for three years, Dr Patel pursued specialty training in orthodontics. She received her certificate in orthodontics from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine where she also earned her Master of Science through her investigation of the fluoride release and re-release of Opal Seal. Upon graduation, Dr. Patel received the "Resident of the Year" award from her faculty and a scholarship from Rocky Mountain Orthodontics for her exemplary performance throughout the program.
After living in Denver during her residency, Dr Patel and her husband, Ronak, decided to call Denver home- falling in love with the beautiful landscape, vibrant seasons and diverse culture that the city has to offer. Outside of the office, Dr Patel is mom to her charismatic 3 year old daughter, Jaya. She enjoys spending time with her family and exploring the outdoors.
Dr. Patel is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists. She is excited to be joining our team, and she looks forward to being a part of the community and creating beautiful smiles for her patients.
