Check back soon to meet Dr. Zeller!
Dear Patients of Perfect Smiles,
This letter is to introduce myself, Dr. Krupa Patel. I am a general dentist with a focus on family dentistry treating patients of all ages, including children. My vision is to offer caring, comfortable and comprehensive dental care.
To help you get to know me, I will share a little bit about my background and from where my passion for dentistry arose. I was born and raised in Canton, MI, where my family dentist became my mentor and inspired me to consider a career in dentistry.
I completed my undergraduate studies at The University of Michigan, where I graduated with high honors in a degree in Brain Behavior and Cognitive Sciences. After college, I attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA, where I obtained my DMD.
“Treat your patients like family and it will guide you to practice good and safe dentistry.” I will never forget these inspirational pearls of wisdom passed on by an instructor in dental school. With that said, I hope that you will give me the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your dental concerns with me. I am committed to providing you and your family with excellent dental health care in a professional and friendly manner.
