May Ribbon Cutting Recap

Glendora, CA, 9th of May, 2015-Today the Glendora Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for Park Place Smiles located at 641 W. Route 66, Suite D in the city of Glendora.

In attendance were Dr. Minal Patel, staff, family and friends. From Assemblymember Roger Hernandez's Office was Ashely Rozatti and the City of Glendora was represented by Council Member Judy Nelson. The Chamber was represented by Ambassadors Jesus Arriaga and Keith Van Vliet and the Chamber's Executive Director Joe Cina.�???�??�?� 

Family. Community. Roots. These are just three of the reasons Dr. Minal Patel chose to open Park Place Smiles, her General and Cosmetic Dentistry practice in Glendora. A Southern California native, she grew up in Norwalk and witnessed the challenges and joys her father experienced operating his own neighborhood pharmacy in Long Beach for over 38 years. To pursue her dreams of a career in healthcare and helping others, she chose UCLA for her undergraduate education where she studied Psychobiology. From there she went on to New York University Dental School where she graduated in 2007, but she couldn't wait to get back to Southern California to begin her career in dentistry.

For seven years she associated herself with Dr. Parimal Kansagra, one of the most respected and well known cosmetic dentists in the state. As an Implantologist Dr. Kansagra specializes and teaches how to place implants and from him Dr. Patel learned and perfected her craft to the point where she was soon doing all the restorations such as implants, crowns and bridges in his office. For two of the seven years she worked with Dr. Kansagra she was the managing dentist in his Anaheim Hills office. Then for two more years she was the managing dentist in his Walnut office. From him she developed a passion for cosmetic dentistry helping to achieve for each patient the beautiful and healthy smile they had always dreamed of.

Furthering her education Dr. Patel has completed significant coursework at the Las Vegas Institute which specializes in cosmetic dentistry and occlusion therapy. She is also a certified Invisalign�???�??�?�® treatment provider. These things are what drive Dr. Patel and why she has determined to dedicate her life to creating a community of patients who will be as passionate and concerned about their good oral health as she is. We invite you to join this dynamic and growing community of patients who seek the best in their oral healthcare needs.
