Dr. Purna Patel


Dr. Patel was born and raised in India. She is an internationally trained dentist with advanced training. She completed her early dental education from India. She graduated with honors and has co-authored several scientific publications. Her passion for dentistry and desire to be a better clinician brought her to the United States for further training.

It gives her the opportunity to be part of so many amazing patient’s lives and to make positive changes not only in their oral health but also in their overall health. She is a firm believer of treating everyone with compassion and kindness. She goes above and beyond to make sure her patients are treated the same way she would like her family members to be treated.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time out in nature, reading or listening to podcasts. She likes to go for hikes and is looking forward to exploring the Sierra mountains. She is a plant mom and has a dream of having her own greenhouse in her backyard. She is also a good artist and loves to work on DIY projects.
