Dr. Arpan Nalin Patel

Owner Dentist

Dr. Patel made the decision at a very young age that he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and work in dentistry. He can even recall back to the age of 7, walking around his father’s practice, constructing and playing around with all the dental models. This love for dentistry stuck with him all throughout his teenage years and into college. Prior to attending dental school, he earned his bachelor’s degree of science in biology from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Not long after graduation, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and attend the same graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania. There, he gained extensive knowledge in multiple fields of dentistry, including cosmetic, restorative, and surgical. In 2000, he completed UPenn’s dental medicine program and received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree.

After graduation, he joined his father’s successful practice and was mentored by him there. This mentoring in highly specialized care immediately put Dr. Patel five to seven years ahead of his peers. In his first month working with his father, he learned how to perform full-mouth rehabilitations, which newly trained dentists are usually not too keen on. His extensive knowledge in the field does not end there.

In 2008, he embarked on a special educational journey by taking an extensive course in dental implantology. Before taking this course, he would typically recommend dental bridges and partial dentures to his patients in need of some restoration. Now, by specializing in dental implantology, he can provide his patients with better-quality teeth that will last a lifetime. His practice emphasizes providing patients comfort and bringing them satisfaction. He does this best by keeping up to date with the latest advancements in dentistry. This is a point that his late father stressed should be done and something that he continues to honor.

My patients mean everything to me; I am proud to provide them with the best treatment in the area by utilizing the latest dental technology.

Aside from his obsession with dentistry, some other things that bring him joy include swimming, soccer, and coaching his boys in flag football.
