ASHLEY

Office Manager

Hello, my name is Ashley and it is my pleasure to make sure you have a positive experience every time you visit our office. I have been in the dental field for 19 years and have had the honor of working for Dr. Patel since April of 2018. It is 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 relaxing on our boat.


WHITNEY

Lead 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 15 years and have been working with Dr. Patel for 12 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.


ROSALINDA

Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Rosalinda and I’ve joined Dr. Patel’s practice with 10 years of dental experience outside of the United States. It is an honor to work with the best dental team the area and I am very happy to be Dr. Patel’s dental hygienist. I listen to the individual needs of our patients in order to provide them with the best quality experience possible, as dentistry is my passion. I love to spend time with my family and to walk our Saint Bernard puppy. (Or have her walk me, depending on how she feels.)


BRIANNA

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Brianna and I am a dental assistant here at The Smile Gallery. I grew up moving all over the place being in a military family, but I like to call Florida my home. I graduated from both Viera High School and Eastern Florida State College with my CMAA in 2020 and have been working in the dental field ever since. I received my radiology and dental assisting license in St. Petersburg and have continued my education to pursue my dream of being a dentist myself. In my free time, I enjoy spending time on the river with friends, painting outdoors and whenever I can, I’m singing.
