Dr. Nammy Patel:

I’ve always been a seeker in my life, so I’m not interested in being ordinary. I have zero desire to do that. I have an interest in being extraordinary. I’ve been given this one life and I know that I’m here for a purpose, and my purpose is dentistry. It is to help people live longer, joyful lives. I absolutely believe that the mouth is a window to the body and a healthy lifestyle and a healthy living.

Patient:

It’s quite unique and I think that’s why Dr. Patel has so many long lasting clients because she takes a genuine interest in their well-being and the dentistry is just one facet of that holistic approach that she has in her overall medicine.

Patient:

It used to be people who would take everybody’s teeth out or just get veneers, and it’s like, thank goodness it’s like, “I’m focused in on keeping your actual teeth and you actually being healthy.”

Damaris Stetzer (Dental Hygienist):

We want to know what’s the most important value for you in your mouth? You know, is it longevity? Is it function? Is it not to be in pain or is it cosmetics? Because we want you to live till, well, Dr. Patel says 107 or 110 with your teeth, and be happy.

Patient:

She knows that your teeth have a gateway to so many other things about you. Your personality, your lifestyle, everything about you.

Patient:

I love smiling. So to have a beautiful set of teeth to go along with the gorgeous smile, I mean that’s beautiful, and confident, and just you’re ready for the world.

Dr. Nammy Patel:

It’s really awesome because I get to know who they are. What touches, moves and inspires them. And it’s fascinating because they think so differently than I do. They help me expand. I’m expanding my way of living, my way of thinking.

Damaris Stetzer (Dental Hygienist):

She just always strives to be better, definitely. So that’s why she’s always looking for the newest, best procedure for our patients to let them have a better smile, healthier teeth, healthier body.

Patient:

Not only is she scientifically rigorous in how she’s made this eco-dentistry happen, she’s actually a really good, authentic, genuine person. And to me that was like, “Oh, she’s not only walking the talk but she actually…she believes in it too.”

Dr. Nammy Patel:

My question is, “How can I serve you, so that you are happy with your smile? That you’re able to do … You’re able to go out and be proud of who you are. It’s something that every single person would want. It’s something that matters for every single person, whether they admit it or not. It’s something that is so valuable because it’s internal.

Patient:

So if you have healthy teeth, then you are healthier and your whole system is healthier. And you have much more to be able to get out of life, to give to live. And it’s just … You feel beautiful and you … Because you have that health, that foundation of health.

Damaris Stetzer (Dental Hygienist):

I really want to care for people. I don’t want to just see 20 patients a day, 30 minutes and just not … It’s not the proper treatment. And I want to work somewhere where they really care about the patients and I love that about Dr. Patel.

Dr. Nammy Patel:

I’m really grateful for all the relationships I’ve built over time, and I do feel like they are test of time, test of character. It’s that personal connection, that lifelong relationship, that lifelong care is what they’re missing. It’s like the heart. If there is no heart in anything we do, it’s not worth doing it at all. It’s really the heart in the art of dentistry.
