Meet Doctor Patel
Sarju B. Patel, DDS, knew he wanted to be a dentist when he observed how passionate his family dentist was in caring for his family and the community. Dr. Patel saw how quality dental care could really change people’s lives for the better. He enrolled in the UCLA dental school and graduated in 1995, where he went on to pursue dentistry in San Diego.
As Dr. Patel continued his education in the dental field, he acquired a fellowship at the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) and now specializes in dentistry procedures such as implants, veneers, and whitening in the Poway, California area. He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), and California Dental Association (CDA). In his free time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with his family and traveling with his two children.
