Our Staff

Dr. Dhaval Patel

I would like to personally welcome you to our office, Simply Teeth!

I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for my undergraduate studies and continued my education at the University of Illinois-Chicago where I received my doctor of dental surgery degree. After graduating, my passion for dentistry grew as I got the opportunity to practice at a busy office in Lincoln Park where I further developed as a clinician. I was raised nearby in Niles and now I am very excited about the opportunity to be able to practice near my hometown.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling and being outdoors. I am an avid Chicago sports fan and try to watch as many games as possible.

Patient comfort is my top priority. I strive to do everything I can to make your appointment as pleasing as possible while simultaneously providing you with exceptional oral healthcare. In order to keep up with the ever-changing dental profession, I am a proud member of the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA) which has allowed me to further my knowledge with Invisalign.  This includes advanced training in implant surgeries, root canals, and cosmetic dentistry. I hold the dentist-patient relationship to the highest standard and aim to provide the best possible dental care to my patients. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
