Dr. Krishan Patel is proud to call Austin home! He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School Of Dentistry. After graduating from dental school, he worked in multiple practices as an associate dentist and learned the best practices from each one. After getting engaged to his fiancé (now wife!), he moved to Austin in 2013. In December of 2014, he fulfilled one of his professional goals and purchased Parkfield Family Dental. Dr. Patel is very calm and friendly and treats his patients like family. In his words, “My patients are my dental family!”

Dr. Patel has incorporated technology into his practice at Parkfield Family Dental. In all of the treatment rooms, we have 50-inch televisions that make your dental appointment a little more enjoyable. In addition, we have digital x-rays, electronic patient charts, and intraoral cameras (lets us take pictures of individual teeth and show you on the TVs!).

Dr. Patel is fluent in Gujarati. In his spare time, he enjoys gardening, playing tennis, and spending time with his family.
