Biography

Dr. Priyanka Patel graduated dental school from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio where she earned her Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Prior to moving back to Chicago, she decided to stay in Cleveland for an extra year to participate in a General Practice Residency at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center. This experience provided her with the opportunity to not only refine and expand her dental training but serve our nation's great Veterans. She has also traveled abroad to Guatemala and Ecuador to treat patients of all ages who lack access to dental care.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

When you come and see us at Rooted Dental Care (also known as Lincoln Park General and Cosmetic Dentistry), you will be treated like family. We offer open and honest communication. I strive to create an atmosphere that helps reduce the anxiety associated with dental offices. With years of practice, I have been able to develop my skills in different aspects of the field, from root canals to Invisalign. You will receive comprehensive treatment while you are here.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

We focus on comprehensive Examination- evaluating the mouth as a whole so we can treat everything collectively. With this, we can address the best course of action, where it's addressing infection or cavities, etc. We focus on preventative care. We believe that healthy gums and bone levels are important in having a good foundation for the rest of your dental care. At Rooted, we address at home care, offer information on the best products for you, as well as diagnose and execute the appropriate treatment for you. We also focus on cosmetic treatment ranging from veneers to Invisalign.

What are you proud of in your practice?

My team and I are interested in who you are and how we can help address your dental needs. We are passionate about this field and want to offer you a transparency and compassion.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy helping those that are anxious about their dental work. Many find themselves fearful of the dentist due to traumatic experiences as a child. I believe that my calming but bubbly personality allows patients to feel at ease when they are at the office. In terms of treatment, I enjoy helping patients in whatever capacity should they need!

    My appointment with Dr. Patel was the most thorough dental exam I have ever received. Her hygienist took detailed measurements of my gums as part of the exam, which I've never experienced before. I was kept comfortable throughout the appointment and appreciated that they have TVs in the exam rooms to take your attention off of the work being done. Would definitely recommend!

    Dr. Patel was AMAZING! She was so quick and understanding. I have really never had this pleasant of an experience at the dentist's office. I cannot wait to go back for my cleaning and I never thought I would say that. The office is so clean and nice. I could tell all preventative care had been done before my arrival, especially during a time like now. Thank you so much Dr. Patel!

    The office was clean and very nice (almost spa-like when arriving!) Each of the employees was extremely nice. My dental hygienist was very friendly and upfront about anything that may be uncomfortable. Dr Priyanka was nice, straight forward with communication, and all employees were thorough but mindful that I needed to return to work in a timely manner. Great experience overall!

    Dr. Patel and her whole team were amazing! Best dentist experience I've had by far. She was very knowledgeable and detail-oriented and fully explained what I was seeing in my scans/images. Also love how high-tech the equipment is, there's so many imaging methods to get the best look at your teeth.

    Clean, bright, and modern facility. Staff was prompt and friendly. The examination and cleaning felt quite thorough. If you like to watch television during your exam, that is available. I plan to return for future visits. They did offer additional services such as flouride treatment and oral cancer screening, but didn't push it when I declined.

    DENTAL FRAUD ALERT. I went to see Dr Patel a few months ago as a regular checkup - i was not in any pain before seeing her. She diagnosed me with SEVEN cavities. I asked what the downside was to filling cavities and she said NONE. She assured me that there were no risks. So I went ahead and filled them all in one sitting. She was constantly distracted while filling them- even looking up and away from my mouth to talk to her staff. I had severe pain and sensitivity for the next 3 weeks and had to go back twice for her to grind down the fillings that were too high (basically cleaning up her messy work). A month more goes by and I still have severe pain so I travelled all the way back to my long time family dentist. He told me I only should have had ONE cavity filled - the rest did not show decay to be classified as cavities. Each cavity she filled, she drilled a much bigger hole than necessary. And now, I need a ROOT CANAL to fix the damage she caused. To my fellow millennials- the renovated office and TVs playing friends does NOT make up for what Dr Patel lacks in integrity and skill. DO NOT PUT YOURSELF IN DANGER IN DR PATELS HANDS. I have never regretted any decision more in my life.

    Very modern office with all the latest technology made me feel like Dr. Patel is very up to date with the latest in treatments. A nice comfort is the TV in front of the chair so you can watch while you're getting your cleaning. Dr Patel uses that display to show you any problem areas in close detail and takes the time to explain everything to you.
