This was our first dental appointment for our 13 month old. Dr. Sejal Patel was extremely informative and answered all of our many questions. She has amazing bedside manner - engaged with our daughter right from the start while still beingable to talk us through the appointment and dental hygiene home care steps. Everyone we met at the practice was extremely friendly and welcoming.

My 5 year old daughter loves Dr. Patel. She's been a patient of Dr. Patel for 2 years now and she looks forward to her bi-annual check-ups. Dr. Patel is very warm and sweet and knows very well how to makechildren comfortable in her office. She explains to children everything that she will do before she does it and she does so, on the child's level so when she starts the bristle machine to clean teeth, the child won't panic or be scared of what's happening. She definitely has a great way with children and we love her very much and feel grateful that she has made the dental visits experience very positive for our daughter. We highly recommend her and her office. Everyone there is super sweet and nice and the office is very much child friendly.
