Dr. Patel grew up in Mount Airy, NC affectionately known as Mayberry, RFD. After moving to the Triangle during high school, Dr. Patel was thrilled to attend UNC – Chapel Hill as an undergraduate.
While enjoying life as a Tarheel, his passion for dentistry was ignited after a trip to TN to shadow his Aunt, an accomplished dentist in the town of Tazewell. The seamless integration of art and science left a lasting impression on Dr. Patel and ultimately inspired him to pursue the engaging hands-on profession of dentistry.
Upon completion of his education in Baltimore, he then moved to New York for residency which is also where he met and fell in love with his fiancé! Dr. Patel is excited to be back in the Carolinas doing what he loves most at CarolinasDentist in Spring Lake… and every now and then you’ll also find him trekking, skiing, snowboarding or watching UNC basketball!
