Dr. Dhaval Patel: General Dentist
Dr. Patel received his Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from Rajiv Gandhi University in 2008. After completing a year of residency in India, he moved to Edmonton, where he worked as a dental assistant on the Central Dental team, facilitating the work of our dentists and hygienists and getting to know our patients.
To advance his career, Dr. Patel moved to Toronto to complete the NDEB Equivalency Process, and completed his NDEB exam in July, 2016. The decision to return to Central Dental after graduation was an easy one, as he had spent years establishing himself in the Alberta community, and cultivating solid relationships with our patients and the other dental professionals on our team.
Dr. Patel currently practices general dentistry, with a focus on preventive and esthetic dentistry. His traditional, prevention-oriented approach to oral health emphasizes self-care strategies as one of the most effective ways to improve oral health and provide patients with a higher level of care. With his cheerful personality and good-natured sense of humour, Dr. Patel has an uncanny gift for putting people at ease during appointments, and patients often look forward to their time in his chair.
Dr. Patel is an avid learner and an active volunteer in the community. He is currently a member of the Alberta Dental Association and College, and is a certified Invisalign provider. A travel enthusiast, Dr. Patel makes an effort to take a trip at least once a year, even if it’s somewhere nearby. He is an avid outdoorsperson and, during his off time, can often be found working out, participating in an outdoor activity of some kind, or cheering on his favourite team – the Edmonton Oilers.
