Kruti Patel, DDS
When it comes to creating beautiful smiles, Dr. Kruti Patel achieves the outstanding results you might expect from someone so academically accomplished and with such strong clinical skills. What some patients find surprising, though, is the friendly, calming, and very gentle manner in which she delivers excellent dental care. We asked Dr. Patel to join our team because she meets our high standards in every way. She shares our commitment to excellence, and she has demonstrated that she puts her patients’ priorities, health, and comfort before all else.
As a high school senior, Dr. Patel participated in a program that introduced her to various medical specialties and allowed her to shadow a different doctor one afternoon each week. Through this experience, she developed a general interest in healthcare careers, and eventually a specific interest in dentistry. She went on to graduate summa cum laude from Drexel University’s Pennoni Honors College with a degree in Biological Sciences. Dr. Patel earned her doctoral degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, again graduating summa cum laude.
At Penn Dental, she earned Honors in Clinical Dentistry, a recognition of her advanced clinical achievements. She also earned Honors in Community Service for spending over 120 volunteer hours educating doctors, nurses, and West Philadelphia residents about the detection and prevention of head and neck cancer.
Dr. Patel stays abreast of dentistry’s latest innovations through ongoing training, including participating in workshops and study clubs offered by Spear Education, a premier provider of advanced dental education.
