Patient Care Coordinator
I am the friendly face at the front desk. It is important to me that you feel comfortable from the moment you step through our door. I am happy to answer your questions, help you schedule your next appointment, explain insurance and account information and make sure you have a positive visit. I have been in the dental field for 15 years and have had the pleasure of working for Dr. Patel since April of 2018. It is so exciting to be a part of a team that truly cares for their patients and a doctor that has so much passion for the treatment he provides. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach and cheering on my three children at their sporting events!
Certified Dental Assistant
Hello, my name is Whitney Payne! I was born and raised here in Florida and I love enjoying the outdoors and Florida lifestyle. I attended Melbourne High School and Eastern Florida State College. I earned my Dental Assistant and Dental Radiology Certification with Expanded Functions from EFSC. I have always been fascinated with teeth and interested with the science behind the beauty of them. I have worked in dentistry for 11 years and have been working with Dr. Patel for eight of those years. Working with Dr. Patel has given me the opportunity to understand dentistry on an entirely different level! The technology we offer at our office promotes early detection with dental problems and assists with patient education. I enjoy helping the patient feel comfortable while in our office by explaining treatment, listening to their concerns and tending to their needs. Out of the office I spend time with my husband and daughter. We enjoy going to the movies, fishing, and outside activities like running and bike riding.
Hello, my name is Rosemarie and I practice dental hygiene for Dr. Patel in Melbourne, FL. As a dental hygienist, there is nothing more satisfying than watching a patient’s dental homecare improve through regular cleanings and education; and the best way to do this is to customize oral hygiene instructions based on the needs of the individual patient. I earned my Associate of Science degree for dental hygiene from Savannah Technical College in Savannah Georgia, where I lived for five years. While living outside of Savannah was nice, as a Florida native, I’m glad to be back home. In my off time I enjoy gardening, walking the dogs on the beach, kayaking and exploring nature in this beautiful area of Florida.
