Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Bijal Patel
Dr. Bijal Patel was born and raised in North Bergen, New Jersey (10 miles from NYC). After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree from Seton Hall University, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts to complete her DMD at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. To further solidify her education in dentistry, she completed a general practice residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, NY. She is experienced in dental emergencies, laser dentistry, pediatrics, root canal treatments, fixed and removable prosthodontics, surgical extractions, and the restorations of implants. She is also Invisalign and Nitrous Oxide certified.
After living around the hustle and bustle of big cities for many years, she decided to take the leap and move to Texas to practice dentistry and experience a new part of the country, with no regrets. After five years in Texas, Dr. Patel met the love of her life which led her to move to Atlanta, GA.
When she’s not working, she likes to eat and travel as much as she can. She loves to travel to new places, to enjoy and learn about the culture and people. She also loves to visit places like her hometown in New Jersey with her amazing family. She considers herself a foodie – she loves to be in the kitchen cooking, baking and trying new recipes during her free time. Although not teeth friendly, cupcakes are her favorite food to make (and eat, of course). She’s truly excited to be part of this dental practice and looks forward to building long-term relationships with not only the team, but also the patients at Elegant Smiles.

Dr. Patel strives to provide patient-centered, comprehensive, and compassionate care. She values the importance of continuing education by keeping up to date on research and current technologies.
