What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth; they make smiles look beautiful and function the way they should!
After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.
Many like to think of a prosthodontist as the "quarterback" of a dental treatment plan. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental needs.
Specialist in Prosthodontics
Dr. Patel graduated from Davidson College with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1996. He received his dental degree from West Virginia University in 2001. In 2004, Dr. Patel completed a three-year residency program in the post-graduate Prosthodontics Department at West Virginia University.
Experience in Prosthodontics
During his residency, Dr. Patel conducted research on sleep apnea and earned a Master's degree. He is a member of the American College of Prosthodontics and the American Dental Association.
Dr. Patel and his wife Marsha have two daughters, Raena and Maya, and a son Dylan. During his free time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf.
