Dental Artistry and Dr. Patel are fantastic; the man is worth his weight in gold. I’ve gone to several doctors who’ve been unable to actually diagnose my dental issue. Dr. Patel is the first doctor that I felt actually listened to me – no rushing, no assuming he understood the issue – just listening to my symptoms and my concerns. He took my concerns seriously and ran tests to confirm what I was feeling as well as his own thoughts on the issue; he ultimately came to a conclusion that I trust and that other doctors were not able to figure out. He was patient and – most importantly – took the time necessary to explain what the issue was, how it arises, why it arises, and practical steps to treat it. When I had questions, he considered them and answered them – thoroughly. I also cannot emphasize the practicality of his suggestions and solutions to address my issue. I firmly believe the best doctors are able to match the complexity of the solution to the complexity of the problem – neither over-treating nor under-treating, and he did just that. He was professional yet personable and is very clearly knowledgeable about his craft. He did not try to up-sell me on unnecessary treatments and leveled with me about future forecasts regarding my issue. He made me feel less crazy about the issues I presented to him – acknowledging that they are in fact real and that I was not being overly sensitive. If I could have Dr. Patel as my regular dentist, I would be a patient for life. Because that’s not possible, I simply plan to constantly refer everyone I know to Dr. Patel. I would also say that Dental Artistry’s staff are also quite pleasant – they are quite accommodating, flexible, and personable. I did not have one instance of coming into the reception area and feeling as if I was “just another patient.” They were quite forgiving of the two times I completely forgot about my appointments (even though they sent reminders) and I appreciated their punctuality at my appointments. As someone who works for a hospital, I know the difference between quality doctors and medical practices and Dr. Patel and Dental Artistry are top quality. While I certainly hope I don’t need a specialist again, if I ever have complex dental issues, I will head straight for Dental Artistry and Dr. Patel. 5 stars without reservation!
