"A PLEASANT VISITI visited Dr. Neela Patel's office for the first time Nov 2019 for the military veteran's smile event. I was able to fill my paperwork out ahead of time with the help of the excellent receptionist to save time during the initial visit. As I entered the office I noticed the lobby was modern, warm & welcoming. Quickly, my initial evaluation was conducted with 3D panoramic high tech equipment and a friendly technician. After the evaluation, I was escorted back to the lobby and offered light refreshments as I enjoyed the joyful music. As I enjoyed my snacks , I noticed another patient that was obviously suffering from some anxiety due to a dental visit. I witnessed the receptionist come from behind the desk to comfort the patient both verbally and physically. As I observed tears subside , pacing reduce and peace fill the room , I was nothing short of impressed with how the office staff when above and beyond to comfort patients. I met Dr. Patel during my procedure and her bubbly personality was delightful ! Another technician finished the job and answered all of my question regarding preventive maintenance and dental care. As I was leaving , I was given a "to go" bag with recommended products to continue my dental health journey. I was reminded that my teeth will be the last identifiable part of my body and how long they last is a direct reflection of my involvement of care. Although it was only my first visit, it felt as if I was visiting a friend to do homework at their home. THANK YOU Dr. Patel and the wonderful support staff! I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS OFFICE TO ALL SEEKING DENTAL CARE :)"- S.M. / SmileReminder / Dec 21, 2019
"Dr. Patel is awesome. I've seen her since I switched from my pediatric dentist (over 15 years). Her new secretary Phyllis; however, is quite rude. To make a simple appointment, she cuts me off when I'm speaking, she doesn't listen when I explain requests due to details of prior appointments, and she has hung up the phone up in my face. This has happened on multiple occasions. I've never had issues for the same services from the previous secretary who was always delightful. Phyllis gives a negative experience before you arrive to your actual appointment. The awful part is there's no one else to speak to in order to avoid her nasty attitude."- J.P. / Google / Jan 25, 2021
"Great team that cares about their profession. I’d recommend to any individual or family in need of a caring Dentist."- J.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020
Smile Makeover - What to Expect
A smile makeover begins with a consultation with Dr. Patel to discuss the patient's concerns with their current smile and their smile makeover goals. After assessing the health and condition of the mouth, Dr. Patel will work with each patient to create their custom smile makeover treatment plan. She will then help the patient schedule their appointment or appointments for their cosmetic and restorative dental treatments.
Smile Makeover - Treatment Aftercare
Once their smile makeover is complete, patients should talk to Dr. Patel and our staff about creating a good home oral care routine to maintain the health and appearance of their teeth. With proper care, a smile makeover can have long-lasting effects. Depending on the treatments performed during the smile makeover, our staff may recommend special dental products or more frequent dental exams and cleanings.
Smile Makeover - Insurance Coverage
Smile makeovers usually include cosmetic procedures that are not covered by dental insurance, but some restorative procedures may be covered, so our administrative team will confirm the patient's benefits to determine their personal cost. To help all of our patients afford their best smile, we accept several payment options and offer financing through our office, which can be discussed during the consultation.
