Dentistry was not really my passion. I was drawn into it by a chance. I’m fortunate to have got into it by chance because it actually is the perfect combination of the things that I love to do, that being science and art. And the art side of it, I get to practice every day. I get to use the science along with the art to provide a great smile. And so, I’m fortunate for that opportunity to have come about. Changing people’s lives, simple as that. I get to change the lives of those who are either in discomfort and get them out of discomfort. Bigger than that is the whole ability to change someone’s energy, their positivity. The things that it brings when I can change someone’s smile to, you know, so they can exude the things that they’ve been missing.
Dr. Trushar Patel Loves Improving Lives Through Dentistry
Dentistry is more than just cleaning teeth, repairing a tooth, relieving pain, or making a smile more beautiful. Dr. Trushar Patel believes that it’s a way for him to help improve a person’s well-being, both physiologically and psychologically. As a dentist, he is able to help people develop better oral health and feel better about their appearance. People smile more when they are happy and show their happiness by smiling more.
Dr. Patel values dentistry’s amazing ability to improve someone’s life. He first and foremost addresses and treats a person’s clinical conditions. However, at the same time, he loves to give people what they desire, both carefully and affordably. Today’s advanced technology and treatment options allow him to offer care that’s easier, quicker, and more comfortable than ever. With improved diagnostic imaging, he is able to intervene earlier and provide minimally invasive care that can save smiles!
Dr. Patel loves hearing patients’ stories and learning about them. He thrives on the conversations he engages in. Most of all, he loves working in partnership with each person to help them attain the smile of their dreams. He has built a dental dream team, composed of remarkable individuals who understand that each patient is a person who should be treated with compassion and empathy. They actively engage their patients and encourage them to be proactive with the maintenance and improvement of their oral health.
Dr Patel received his undergraduate degree at Mercer University and his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine. He is passionate about learning. Dentistry is constantly changing, with new technologies, materials, and treatments becoming available. It’s his responsibility to remain current on these developments in order to deliver the quality dentistry patients expect and deserve.
Recently he has been pursuing continuing education focused on digital and technologically advanced dentistry. He has studied CEREC® same-day tooth replacement, Sirona’s 3-D radiography, dental implant placement, and advanced aesthetics. He also has certifications with Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Patel grew up in London, in the United Kingdom, and moved to Georgia in 1996 for college. He now lives with his family in Johns Creek; it’s the perfect place for all of them! He married his college sweetheart shortly after graduating from dental school in 2004. They have three incredible daughters: Lara, Serena, and Mila. Much of his spare time revolves around their girls and their activities. When he gets the chance, though, Dr. Patel loves getting out on the golf course. He also enjoys traveling and experiencing the world and different cultures. He finds he learns so much about people when he learns how they live and navigate the world.
By the way, he is a big fan of football — the real kind. He is a huge fan of Arsenal FC!
