Dr. Sejal Patel is a truly wonderful pediatric dentist. My son immediately felt so comfortable with her on his first visit that he never raised a fuss when she cleaned his teeth. She has a very natural and fun approach when interacting with children, and her staff are wonderful as well. My three year old son actually looks forward to getting his teeth cleaned.

Dr. Patel was great with my son. She was very informative and did not rush the visit. She was very patient and that helped make my anxious son comfortable, and cooperative. This was my son's first dental visit. So when we return, my son knows what to expect and won't be fearful.

Dr. Patel has a professional and child-friendly demeanor. She naturally puts the patient, my daughter, at ease as well as me, the parent. Dr. Patel patiently takes time to describe and explain clearly the best ways to care for my daughter's teeth at this stage in her life, and she does not rush through answering any questions that I might have. The offices are clean and inviting with plenty of activities for children in the waiting room. The practice, from start to finish, makes me feel confident in the quality of my daughter's dental care.

Dr. Patel is a very knowledgeable dentist with excellent bedside manners. She makes sure that your kid is comfortable and doesn't develop phobia for future dental visits. She spends considerable amount of time to explain to parents about her evaluation and the plan for going forward. I wish I had known her earlier. I am a physician myself and I really appreciate a doctor like her. I am definitely brining in my other one here and will recommend my friends.

Once again, Dr. Patel and her staff were amazing. They took the time to work with my daughter on proper brushing technique. Dr. Patel went over some things I should think about and discuss with the Orthodontist so that I can make informed decisions about my daughter's needs. My daughter and I left feeling very good about the visit.

Our pediatrician suggested ToothWorks -- We saw Dr Sejal Patel and she was excellent. Clearly enjoys working with kids and worked hard to make our toddler daughter comfortable while examining her mouth. Their office is really child-friendly, and they have flat screen tvs mounted over the exam chairs -- and Netflix -- so we were able to pick something my daughter liked to keep her occupied. She provides ways to reach her easily btwn appointments and the entire office's staff was very nice and professional. She gave lots of clear information and helpful guidelines. Definitely recommend her!

Dr. Sejal was wonderful as always. However, I would suggest that there should be a "cushioned time" in between appointments so that the patient who is on time would not be penalized for the previous patient's over usage of his time slot. And most importantly, this cushioned time will allow doctor. a few minutes to get ready for the next patient.

Dr Sejal Patel is awesome with kids. She made my 4 year old so comfortable that my daughter actually likes visiting her. This was one of the most important reason why we were able to stick to Dr Patel apart from the fact she is really good at her procedures. She is strongly recommended.

Dr Patel is really great. She is gentle and fun with kids. She takes the time to answer all questions. I was a bit nervous about a procedure that my daughter will have to do, and she patiently explained everything. I was recommended to her by numerous friends - some whose children have needed extensive work done - and all rave reviews!
