Meet the Team

Dr. Jiten Patel

Dr. Jiten Patel was born in London, England and moved with his family to Atlanta, Georgia in 1995. After graduating from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Dr. Patel received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 2012. Dr. Patel then completed a one-year General Practice Residency at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center. He now resides in Delaware with his wife Prachi, an optometrist, and their two sons.

Proficient in all phases of general dentistry, Dr. Patel provides comprehensive care to his patients. “I’m thorough, and I like to educate my patients on the procedures as well as their oral health,” Dr. Patel says, “I always provide the highest possible quality of treatment I can.”

Dr. Patel is a member of the American Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry where he is currently working towards his fellowship. One thing that distinguishes Dr. Patel is his constant thirst for knowledge. Never satisfied with the status quo, he is always trying to learn more and better himself as he believes patients deserve to be treated with the most up-to-date techniques using the latest technology. Come find out what new procedures and technology Dr. Patel has to offer!

Pam thoroughly enjoys her work with Dr. Patel because as she says, “I love our patients and helping them with their dental needs”.
