Dr. Krupa Patel

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.
