THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Driven, creative, curious
9.
THE FUTURE OF MY FIELD
Dentistry is going digital
10.
IN WHAT WAYS IS DENTISTRY LIKE ART?
The ideal smile is a custom creation. A dentist must take into account the patient’s age, facial contours, skin tone, gum line and expectations. Dentists use an array of tools to cast, drill, file and perfect each dental restoration. It requires a mastery of precision—the very definition of art
11.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BIGGEST SMILE BREAKTHROUGH ON THE HORIZON?
t would have to be 3-D printing! I’ve already invested in this technology for my practice for dental prosthetics and physical models of my patients. It’s becoming part of my in-office magic and allows me to not just discuss what I can do as a dentist, but also show my patients what to expect
12.
HOW DO YOU HELP BEAUTIFY PATIENTS?
There is simply no way for a person to radiate their natural beauty if they are always limiting their smile. The beauty that comes with a confident smile is unmistakable
13.
WHAT NEW SERVICES ARE YOU EXCITED TO OFFER?
GuidedSMILE—a medical device that expands the surgeon’s control and precision over the dental implant process during surgery, including the planning and placement. It’s been called the “GPS for placing dental implants,” and gives me the ability to deliver a more precise, functional and aesthetically pleasing outcome. It shortens surgery by almost half the time, which minimizes swelling and discomfort. It allows patients to get a full set of new teeth the same day!
14.
WHAT IS YOUR MAIN FOCUS WHEN DOING COSMETIC DENTISTRY?
"The perfect smile” is not one size fits all. In cosmetic dentistry, it’s all about listening to the patient. My team and I have to understand the patient’s expectations in order to create a satisfying final result. Most times, there is more than one way to achieve the look the patient wants and I provide a complimentary consultation to review options

Philosophy

Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Sirona siCAT guided implant surgery, specialties of Dr. Neal Patel, allow him to use a less-invasive approach to dental surgery. Simply put: The planning and placement of dental implants are simulated digitally prior to treatment, ensuring increased patient comfort and optimal results when replacing missing or broken teeth. He also focuses on continuing his own education. “A great passion of mine is education,” says Dr. Patel. “As an educator of dental clinicians, I feel it’s my duty to lead the industry in oral care developments, and to educate others so they can maximize the patient experience through improved care.” He recently earned his Certified Dental Technician designation, a credential recognized in his field as a representation of his commitment to maintaining the highest standards of professional excellence in the dental technology community.

About My Practice:

What is unique about your practice?

Infinite Smiles is a sophisticated fusion of science and art so it has every single technology that is on the cutting edge of dentistry in one building—and we use this technology in every aspect of our patients’ care. We’re completely digital. That is unique. And while the equipment we have is important, the training we have undertaken to use that equipment is equally important.

What is your overall practice philosophy?

We don’t focus just on how things look. First and foremost, we make sure the smile is healthy and we reinforce that through aesthetics so that patients get excited about their smiles and are motivated to maintain them. We also believe in giving our patients all the options and push ourselves to find better ways to treat them instead of getting comfortable and trapped by older methods.

What technology are you most excited to have?

We love the many applications for cone beam imaging, which is basically a 3-D x-ray. It allows us to measure more accurately and see things that we weren’t able to see with traditional x-rays. It’s a glimpse of what’s coming in the future of dentistry.

I completed an Implant Prosthodontic Fellowship and I stay up to date through the many organizations I belong to, including the American Academy of Cosmetic Den­tistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

About Me

Teeth in a Day

This 49-year-old patient suffered severe deterioration of her teeth and jaw as a result of illness and medication. She sought the expertise of Dr. Patel to restore her smile, as well as her confidence, and received a smile makeover using dental implants to permanently replace her missing teeth.

Radical Restoration

Dr. Patel and his team are known for their restorative cases of patients from around the world. Dr. Patel works tirelessly to recover optimal health and beauty for his patients while maintaining natural-looking aesthetics. The patient shown here wanted a natural-looking smile. To achieve this, Dr. Patel treated the patient with implants, crowns and veneers.

Precision Implant Placement

Dr. Patel and his team are known for preci­sion implant placement, treating patients from around the world. Dr. Patel works tirelessly to recover optimal health and beauty for his patients while maintaining natural-looking aesthetics. This patient was treated with a computer-guided dental implant to permanently replace a fractured front tooth.

Adding Shape with a Smile

With precise implant placement, Dr. Patel can restore oral health and balance aesthetics.  This patient was missing teeth and unable to eat with dentures. She received a full-mouth reconstruction of dental implants and crowns.  “The teeth look and feel natural and were critical to restoring facial muscle support to maintain the shape of her face,” Dr. Patel says.

Special Smile Makeover

This 36-year-old patient was involved in a motor accident several years ago where she suffered multiple facial fractures and the loss of many teeth. She came to Dr. Patel wanting a completely new smile and received a Smile Makeover using ceramic crowns and dental implants to replace her missing teeth. 

Computer-Guided Implant Dentistry

Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Sirona siCAT guided implant surgery allows Dr. Patel to use a less invasive approach to dental implant surgery. Simply put: the planning and placement of dental implants are simulated digitally prior to treatment, ensuring increased patient comfort and optimal results when replacing missing or broken teeth.

This image shows a 3-D scan done by Dr. Patel for a reconstructive dentistry patient (shown on the opposite page in Case Study) who suffered a motor accident. It illustrates the various plates used in repairing her facial bones, as well as the spaces for dental implants, and was used to simulate and plan the patient’s surgery in advance.

FAQ's

Q. What new surgical technique are you excited about?

What our experts say:

I teach computer-guided dental surgery because it ensures functional and natural-looking dental implants. Even tenths of a millimeter can make a huge difference.
