Dr. Patel is my new dentist and I was a bit nervous. At my first visit he took his time to explain status of my teeth and to answer my questions. His office staff was friendly and warm, making me feel welcomed. After my first treatment I was confident he is my Dentist! He was caring, attentive and made great job on my teeth. He is dedicated to make my smile healthy and happy. I am truly thankful for his professionalism and would recommend him to any one.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dr. Patel and the entire team at BFD. I have been a patient there for a little over a year and they have been nothing short of professional, gentle, and accommodating. I have recommended them to numerous family members and friends and they all agree...Dr. Patel, his assistant Lauren (love her!) and Samantha at the front desk make BFD the best total dental practice around. Thanks for all you have done to help me gain my smile confidence back!

From childhood experiences I was always afraid of the dentist. Now I actually look forward to my appointments. Very light handed, great injections for Novocaine.
