Dr. Patel

Dr. Patel’s journey to his life in the Bay Area was an exciting and adventurous one. He was born in Zambia, moved to London, then to Cleveland and finally his family settled in Modesto. He received his undergraduate degree at the University of the Pacific and then attended dental school at Temple University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He met his wife, Hina who is a New Jersey native, while he was attending dental school in Philadelphia. They have two young boys, Krishan and Rihaan who keep mommy and daddy on their toes :).

Dr. Patel enjoys working in Brentwood because it reminds him of his childhood. His father has been in the farming business since the 1980s. He has a connection with the agricultural roots that the Brentwood community was founded upon which is represented in the practice’s name. He really enjoys experiencing the eclectic mix of growing families and retirement communities in the surrounding Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay and Antioch townships.

One of the biggest attributes that Dr Patel prides himself in is his dedication to continuing dental education. He is proud of the fact that Orchard Dentistry + Orthodontics is a comprehensive all-in-one dental practice where all of his patients’ dental needs and wants will be met with the utmost skill and professionalism. 

He wants all of his patients to know that they will receive comprehensive care with the highest level of respect, compassion and quality.

He is a proud member of the:

  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • Contra Costa Dental Society
  • Academy of General Dentistry
