Madhuri Patel, DDS
Our Seekonk, MA Dentist Has a Special Passion for Family Dentistry
I always wanted to be a doctor because I'm from a background where most of my family members are either in business or engineering, so in fact I'm the first person in my family, a doctor. When I was trying, I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a dentist or go into a medical field, and my grandmother had a denture and she didn't like it so she told me, “Why don't you try and go to a dental school?” And that's how I slowly started getting interested in dental field and started, like I had one family uncle, like distant uncle, who was a dentist, so I started visiting him, and that's how I went into a dental field.
The most rewarding field of dentistry for me will be definitely providing dental care to patient to bring them out of discomfort. At the same time provide them confidence and a smile that they lack, they didn't have before. Other most rewarding definitely when I started in this practice was, patient, super apprehensive patients when they come, I specifically remember one patient that I had where she was so apprehensive that first time that I met her, she would not sit in dental chair, so I had to literally, my first visit was just having conversation with the patient then eventually she got so comfortable with me that we proceeded with exam at the same time. Eventually we did do dental work, and now when I see her, she is so comfortable she is no longer have any anxiety.
