Dr. Deepa Patel grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe where she spent most of her childhood, and made the move to Dallas, TX at the age of 13. From a very young age she was intrigued with going to the dentist and like many kids, wanted braces for as long as she can remember!
After graduating from The University of Texas at Arlington, Dr. Deepa moved to Bradenton, Florida to complete dental school, earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Prior to joining private practice, she completed a General Practice Residency in Hospital Dentistry at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, New Jersey. Through residency, Dr. Deepa was able to expand her knowledge and skills treating patients of vast complexities, including trauma and medical conditions.
When Dr. Deepa is not doing what she loves most, building lifelong relationships with her patients and taking care of them, she enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling and exploring different cultures. She also appreciates being outdoors and practicing yoga during her spare time.
