About Us

Dr. Devish H Patel, DDS, Co-Founder

Dr. Patel attended UT Austin for his undergraduate studies, later going on to complete dental school at UTHSC-San Antonio. After gaining clinical experience in Dallas, he eventually relocated to Austin, where he provides highly skilled, individualized dental care.

Dr. Patel exudes positive, fun-loving energy that’s utterly contagious – even the most nervous patients are quick to feel comfortable and relaxed during their visits.

Dr. Hardik Chodavadia, DDS, Co-Founder

Dr. Chodavadia (aka Dr. C) has been a Texas resident most of his life. While attending college in Pennsylvania, his roommate asked him if he’d ever considered a career in dentistry. After shadowing a dentist for a time, Dr. Chodavadia quickly realized he had discovered his calling. Dr. Chodavadia spent a short time as a stand-up comedian while he was in dental school – so don’t be surprised if he cracks a few side-splitters to help you feel at ease!
