Dr Smita Patel

Owner/School Director

Dr. Smita Patel has been creating beautiful smiles with the latest types of braces in Washington since 2007. She was born in India and grew up in Bolton, England. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Computer Science at Nottingham Trent University before coming to the United States to attend graduate school. She graduated from the University of South Florida with her master’s degree in Biochemistry and went on to pursue her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2003 from Nova Southeastern College of Dental Medicine. In addition, she completed a General Practice residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center in North Miami Beach.

Having gained a finer appreciation for dental esthetics and the importance of a good bite she went back to school to obtain advanced training in Orthodontics. She earned a master’s degree and a certificate in Orthodontics from Marquette University.

During her tenure at Nova Southeastern she received the Eleanor J. Bushee Senior Student Award for her academic excellence and outstanding leadership and was elected by the faculty into membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the well-recognized dental honor society for academic achievement and leadership in dentistry.

In addition to her private orthodontic practice in Bothell and Seattle, Washington, Dr. Patel is an affiliate professor at the University of Washington, as well as a published author in several academic journals.

Dr. Patel thanks you for choosing Little Pearls Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics as your family’s destination for top notch orthodontic care in Washington.
