Having traveled to us all the way from sunny Florida, Dr. Patel enjoys the great outdoors which Washington state has much to offer! In her free time, she loves learning about crafts, cultures, new travels, and cooking (along with eating as well!). She's always excited to hear about new food and hiking spots from her patients!
Dr. Patel believes in the power of education and sharing knowledge with her patients to help them understand and know what's best for themselves while keeping a respectful/comfortable environment. Like many of our other doctors, she's known to be gentle and conservative in order to provide the best care possible. Patients are always encouraged to ask many questions and take charge of their oral health. She aims to maintain great relationships with her patients while sharing laughs, experiences, and most importantly - many smiles!
