Dr. Harish Patel, D.M.D.
Dr. Patel has been practicing dentistry for more than 23 years. He has two dental degrees: one from the University of London and the other from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Patel prides himself on providing compassionate care to all of his patients. Always learning, he continually enrolls in continuing education: most recently he completed courses in endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. He is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
Besides improving the health and appearance of individual smiles, Dr. Patel also believes in improving the community in which he lives. For three years now he has sponsored “Race Against the Odds,” a local event to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer. The office participates in the Matthews walk-a-thon to raise support for Novant Health’s cardiac care unit. And, every year, Dr. Patel helps patients and the needy by hosting a food drive for Second Harvest. Patients can actually help pay for the treatment they need by donating food during the holidays.
Dr. Patel moved to Matthews from New Jersey, but you won’t hear him speaking with a northern accent. Instead, you’ll hear his British roots as his family came to the U.S. from London. His two rapidly growing kids take up a large chunk of his free time. His son is an aspiring tennis champ, and his daughter participates in modern and traditional dance. When he’s not cheering them on at one of their many activities, he looks forward to taking them to see the latest movies on the big screen. While soccer was his first love, he now looks forward to cheering on the Carolina Panthers with his family.
