"This office is absolutely incredible. Dr Patel is extremely professional, patient & thorough. The staff is just as professional & personable. This appointment wasn’t easy for me to go to, but they made it easy. I will be referring family & friends to this office in a heartbeat. I can’t thank them enough."- L.S. / Google / Apr 23, 2022

"• Wish I had the mindset earlier in life to take personal time out for myself and develop a routine Floss-Floss-Floss. • Went every 6 months to the dentist and did what I thought was right. Was comfortable with where I was and felt I was receiving the best care. Then I came across Dr. Patel and found the care could be even better. His artistry and technology make him superior in the care he provides. • I decided to become engaged in my dental journey and make a commitment on my part for Dr. Patel to help me. • My TMJ disorder used to cause headaches, popping in my jaw and pain. One day I woke up and realized I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen in days because I was finally feeling relief. I noticed that my overall quality of life began to change, and I no longer felt the stress and pain I had experienced for so long. • I think for everyone, money is a factor when it comes to taking care of themselves. I decided to invest in myself, and it has become the best gift I could’ve received. • Time is not a factor, and you are the priority at Dr. Patel’s office. The saying “Love the one you’re with” comes to mind every time I call the office or go in for an appointment. Each staff member makes you feel as though you’re the only one present and they’ve got all the time in the world for you. • I challenge any other doctor to have the same passion for dentistry and compassion for their patients as Dr. Patel does. If you go to Dr Patel, you will never change dentists again!"- D.B. / Google / Dec 06, 2021

We may use WaterLase™ iPlus laser to treat your teeth, gums, bone or other soft tissues in your mouth to:
Improve your smile by contouring or shaping your gums with periodontal plastic surgery to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
Remove oral growths and excess tissue quickly and safely in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.
Fix a “tongue tie” and/or prevent gum recession by releasing connections that restrict the movement of your tongue, cheek or lips and cause your gums to recede without a scalpel or stitches and less post-operative pain.
Treat periodontal disease by removing debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about REPAIR minimally invasive periodontal treatment.
Treat endodontic (root canal) infections and can perform disinfection and cleaning, open dentinal tubules, decontaminate prior to obturation, pulpotomy, pulp extirpation, smear layer removal in the canal as well as surgical endodontics procedures such as apicoectomy. Using patented radial firing tips to deliver laser energy in a 360-degree cone within the canal, Waterlase can have a dramatic, positive impact on clinical outcomes for endodontics.
Treat Peri-implantitis and Infected implants with REPAIR minimally invasive protocol to remove diseased tissues, debris and bacteria between your implants and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of dental implants.
We may also use our WaterLase iPlus laser to perform other procedures that could benefit you.
