She is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and the New York University College of Dentistry. After dental school, Dr. Sejal completed a two-year specialty training program in Pediatric Dentistry at the Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York.

She has also organized dental educational programs locally, including demonstrations for students at elementary schools throughout New York City on proper brushing and flossing techniques. During her free time, Dr. Sejal enjoys experimenting with photography and painting, knitting, playing badminton, biking, reading, and savoring a good cup of coffee. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two kids.

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 make children 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.

Dr. Sejal is fantastic with toddlers and children of any age. We have been seeing her since my daughter was 15 months old. I have never seen a child *want* to go to the dentist but Dr. Sejal's bedside manner is just that good.

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.
