Harshil Patel, DDS


I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and have been in Houston most of my life. I completed my undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Houston, completed dental school at the University of Texas School Of Dentistry at Houston, and moved to Louisville, Kentucky to complete my General Practice Residency. I missed the charms of the city of Houston so I ultimately ended up moving back. I have practiced in various dental clinical settings and have an extensive amount of experience in multiple phases of general dentistry. I have a holistic approach to patient care, I try to be an approachable and compassionate dentist, and all while providing high quality and ethical care to every patient. I continue to strive for excellence, taking continuing education courses concurrently with my practice of dentistry. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, friends, and am a very big supporter of the Houston Texans, Rockets, and Astros. I proudly support my alma mater, the University of Houston, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2008.
