When I first walked in I was greeted with smiles and happiness!! My visits to dentists in the past have been severely for and I now have a slight bit of anxiety when it comes to anything dealing with the dentist.With them knowing that they treated me with the best care ever! The doctor was amazing and explained everything in a manner in which I could understand and gave me the option to ask questions. He came up with a comprehensive plan in which we can get everything done that needs to and is helpful in resources for payment. Really glad I found a great dentist! Highly recommended!

Dr. Patel and his staff are wonderful! It was such an inviting atmosphere from the time that I walked through the door. I was so anxious about the fact that I needed a root canal, when I was finished it waslike I had just had a filling done (you always hear such horror stories about root canals) I was treated like I was a Queen and felt as though I was in a spa instead of a dental office. All of them made me feel very special and that I was their top priority. I would highly recommend anyone to go see Smile Loft Dental Branch Avel!!

Having been to several dentists over the span of my lifetime, Dr. Patel is by far the best. By that I mean I've never felt more comfortable with a dentist. Dr. Patel is by far the one who can made mefeel totally comfortable despite my apprehension for surgical removal of old, dysfunctional teeth, bone grafting and implants. The time involved seemed like a few minutes instead of what normally would be a few hours. His professional demeanor and bedside manner is nothing short of par excellence. Never did I think I would someday have that toothy smile, well, now I do and I'm ever so happy.

Of all the dentists I've had over the decades (I'm 70), Dr. Patel is by far the best I've encountered. He is very friendly, warm, genial,, pleasant, warmhearted and gracious, Dr. Patel explains all options available and doesn't try to talkone into something they don't need. I've been asking my previous dentist that I wanted my teeth (the few good ones I left) pulled and implants or dentures in place. Well guess what, he honored my wishes. He agreed that the ones I had left would last long and the cost to repair and replace with partials would cost me more in the long run. Finally, I'm GONNA GET THAT BEAUTIFUL, TOOTHY SMILE I've been wanting for a long time. Dr. Patel's office staff are super friendly and can answer all most all dental questions one may have. As well, his office is very clean and immaculate. What's more, I'd recommend Dr. Patel and his office staff to any and all my friends/relatives. Rick T.

His word is his bond. He made sure I was completely comfortable before my procedure and as he said it did not take long at all. He is a great dentist and honestly I wish I would have found his sooner.

I rated only four stars because.......Dr. Patel and his wife are both 5-star dentists!! I just wanted to show I'm not a robot mindlessly filling out the highest rating ;P. Plus I know how many people, myself included, scroll until theyfind lower ratings to get the more honest reviews. (For clarity: 5 stars across the board). Dr. Patel was upbeat, explained everything clearly, and listened attentively while I explained my symptoms. I really appreciated how he discussed what we should deal with first - he cared enough to discuss and prioritize things based on my situation. The office was very nice. Classy waiting room, modern looking equipment, and with a TV monitor right in front of the dentist chair so I could watch television while waiting and also see the X-rays they'd taken. Also, A+ for convenience with the office literally 1 block away from a green-line metro stop (and also tons of parking lots in the area). I think my favorite part of the visit was the general vibe of the office / people. Every dentist I've been with has made me feel down/depressed about my teeth (since I have bad genetics / habits and get cavities frequently). However, despite numerous cavities Dr. Patel was helpful, positive, and made the necessary procedures seem like not the end of the world. Fantastic experience - highly recommended!
