I was fully satisfied

5 stars Customer since 2015

Trust me, as you get older, you'll need a dentist who you can trust implicitly. I have that dentist with Dr. Sonal Patel who has been providing me dental treatment and care the last couple of years. I let things go in my early 50's and didn't see a dentist for about 4 years. Why? I don't really know other than complete stupidity on my part. I knew to get checkups and still didn't go as my teeth seemed fine.

Fast forward four years, I discovered my old dentist retired, I did Yelp searches in my zip area and noticed multiple 5 star reviews for this Dr. Patel. When I went to her to treat an unexpected cracked tooth on my first visit, she was able to save the tooth which was the good news. The bad news was I discovered I needed treatment in other areas. After developing a plan, Dr. Patel has me back on track now with healthier gums and healthier looking teeth.

There is also parking in the building that isn't too expensive which makes is convenient if you don't want to find a spot in the street during a rainy day. Lastly, you can't help but not like her staff and the doctor. They're low key, they're human and they show genuine interest in you being you. I like that, you can be yourself and that's O.K. and not be on guard with each spoken word. I like food, so do they, I like to talk about current events, so do they but only if you want to talk. I like that too,

Take a chance if you want to consider changing dentist or just finding a new one for those newbies to the city.

Just a grateful patient,

Dr. Sonal Patel is a great dentist but a great person too. You can tell she's reading you while in the chair and periodically checks in to make sure you're O.K. I like her staff as well who are "people" persons that help facilitate your visit to be as comfortable as possible. This is not a boiler plate, sterile feeling office with no human kindness other than hearing "next" from a sliding opaque reception window.

If your looking for a new dentist, go there for a cleaning if nothing else to gauge for yourself. There isn't terror in the eyes of those in the reception area as you will see. I've had other dentists in my life but none as professional AND congenial as this office.

Sonal is an excellent Dentist, very thorough and communicative. She gave me choices for how to proceed instead of recommending services that I might not need. The office staff is very nice as well.

Dr. Sonal Patel and her staff are professional, courteous and accepts most insurance companies. I've written two reviews in the past but fear they could be considered outdated now. Transitioning to a new dentist took some time and am guilty of letting my cleanings go almost two years. I knew that I needed some other work too and finally found this doctor through the old fashioned way, I googled dentist in my zip code, the yelped the reviews on each one.

I normally don't take the time to write reviews unless they merit it. What I like most, they greet me with sincerity and not just a "patient". Most importantly, the doctor has restored and fixed all of my major issues, I feel much better about the condition of my health and don't say, "I need to go to the dentist" and put it off.

The thing is, Dr. Patel is a really good doctor when performing her work. She "checks in" with me while in the chair with my eyes closed while I'll wondering if I'll be O.K. to have this or that for dinner. She doesn't stray either, that's biggie for me nor does she lollygag silly things. I want a dentist who is kind yet does great work and doesn't make my visit an African Safari that lasts all afternoon.

Maria, Mia and the hygienist bounce their kindness off of me too which helps me relax when getting my treatment. The office is in a nice building on Union Street with a public garage underneath. There are also a few good eateries nearby if you want to pick something up that's easy on your teeth too. This came in handy when I had some crown work done last year. What can I say, a nice practice, a really good doctor and a friendly staff. I would recommend this doctor to anyone who is still saying, " I need to go to the dentist{". Greg Schwarte

I've been a patient of Dr. Patel since she bought the practice 18 years ago. I have kept her even though I've moved out of the area. Besides being an uncommonly kind person, she's the most talented dentist I've ever had, and I've had quite a few over the years prior to meeting her.

As a result of her deft fingers and great skills, I've been able to have many procedures done without the needle that I would never have let another dentist perform, that includes fillings, new and replacement, and root planing.

Her office is fully modern with digital x-ray and the latest equipment but she won't hesitate to break out "the cavatron" ultrasonic scaler if your teeth call for it.

Dr. Patel and staff are highly competent, skilled and personable. During my routine cleaning with the hygienist

Dr. Patel came in to check and found a small cavity. She asked me if I could wait for a short time in reception so she could fill the cavity the same day rather than asking me to return. I was very appreciative of this accommodation to fit me into her busy schedule.
