Meet Our Team
Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
I work at our front desk, so I’m often the first person our patients meet when they come to the office. I assist them with checking in and out, answer their questions, and verify insurance. I love getting to know each patient on a personal level and hope that their experience in our office is a positive one! Dr. Patel has created such a wonderful environment here at East Wake Dental, and the politeness he shows to everyone he meets and great service he provides makes me proud to work here.
I'm currently going to school at Wake Tech and am in the process of enrolling for the dental hygiene program. I have one older brother and two younger sisters. I am bilingual and speak Spanish. My favorite activity is swimming, and while I like to manage my time and stay busy, I also love to spend time with my family and friends.
I am proud to say I was born and raised in Wendell, North Carolina. I attended Wake Technical Community College and recently graduated from the Dental Assisting program there, class of 2012. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, spending as much time at the beach as possible, attending NC State football games, GO PACK, and shopping...lots and lots of shopping (: I take pride in making all patients feel welcome and comfortable during their visit to our office. I am excited and ready to help you achieve the best smile possible..
Working at our front desk, I help schedule convenient appointments, verify insurance, and check patients in and out. I love talking with our patients and seeing first-hand how great a smile can make people look and feel. I interact with my patients as if they are a part of my very own family, genuinely taking to heart any interests, concerns, or questions that arise. I absolutely love going into the office each morning and after the day has ended, I feel accomplished, knowing I became a part of something as important as a beautiful smile in our patients' lives.
I have two wonderful boys, a great husband and a crazy Chihuahua. In my free time I love listening to music, walking, reading and spending time with family and friends.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I started working in the dental field in 2010 and joined Dr. Patel’s team in 2012. I chose a career as a dental hygienist so I could help people. I always leave at the end of the day with a sense that I have accomplished this, which is extremely rewarding. As a hygienist, it is important for me to work with doctors who share my vision and want the same level of patient care that I aspire to, and I am happy to have found that with Dr. Patel.
I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, and am engaged to be married in May of 2013. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family, garden, cook, read, write songs, and work on home improvement projects.
Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator
I am a graduate from Rutgers University with a degree in finance and work at East Wake Dental Associates with my husband, Dr. Patel. As our office manager, I am responsible for the day to day operations at the office, in addition to answering any patient's questions about upcoming treatment. My favorite part of my job is meeting and getting to know the patients; I love to see how happy they are with their healthy, beautiful smiles. I also appreciate being a part of this wonderful team whose primary concern is to make our patients happy and comfortable.
I have three wonderful children with Dr. Patel. During my free time I like to read, watch movies, and cook. I also like spending my time with friends and family.
