Dr. Dipesh Patel
Originally from Rome, Georgia, Dr. Dipesh Patel completed his undergraduate studies with Honors at the University of Georgia before earning his doctorate from Nova Southeastern University's College of Dental Medicine in 2012. To further solidify his education in dentistry, he has dedicated countless hours to completing continuing education courses to keep up with modern dentistry. Whether it’s 3D cone beam technology (3D x-ray) or 3D intraoral scanning (to prevent taking impressions), Dr. Patel believes in constant education and advancement so that he can serve his patients with the latest that dentistry has to offer. He is experienced in dental emergencies, laser dentistry, root canal treatments, fixed and removable prosthodontics, surgical extractions, pediatrics, and implants. He is also Invisalign and Nitrous Oxide certified. Furthermore, Dr. Patel is currently undergoing rigorous training in sleep medicine because he believes in an interconnection between dentistry and medicine. Treating a person as a whole, not just the oral cavity, is a philosophy he has followed since the day he graduated.
After dental school in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Dr. Patel could not see himself living anywhere besides Georgia. He has a deep love for the state, especially since it is home to his family, friends, and of course his favorite sports teams. When he’s not working, he's an avid sports fan and loves to watch his teams play - Go Dawgs! Go Braves! Go Falcons! Go any team from Georgia! Don’t worry if you’re not a Georgia sports fan, he loves having some friendly sports banter about your favorite teams! He also loves to travel so that he can learn and immerse himself in different cultures and people. In addition, in the mornings prior to work, he likes to meditate and read to get the day started on a positive note. He has a fondness towards self-development and motivation. Some of his favorite books - "The Code of the Extraordinary Mind" by Vishan Lakhani, “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg, “The 5 AM Club” by Robin Sharma and "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne focuses on just that. Dr. Patel has been a part of the Marietta Dental Professionals team since 2012 and he looks forward to building long-term relationships with not only the team, but also the patients at Marietta Dental Professionals.
Dr. Patel's Personal Motto
"I stand for hope and love. I believe that where there is hope, there is an opportunity. I believe that privilege is a gift and with that gift comes the opportunity to change lives for the better. I dream of a world in which all beings, regardless of their privilege or circumstances have the support they need to become the creators of their destinies and realize their fullest potential, enabling a prosperous world abundant with hope, joy, and love for all."
I majored in fashion merchandising and graduated from Darton College in 1992. In 1996 I moved to Roswell and worked at Macy’s in merchandising. In 2002, I decided to change careers and started at Georgia Perimeter University taking core classes at night while I worked full time. I entered the dental hygiene program in 2004 and graduated in 2006. I have been with Dr. Patel for seven years. I have been married for 15 years, and I am a dog mom. We have two rescue dogs; they are my heart. My husband and I have season tickets to The University of Georgia football games and love our other Dawgs! Go Dawgs! We also like to hike and travel.
My passion is helping my patients maintain their health and well-being, while also getting to know them; this is why dental hygiene is perfect for me. I have always had an interest in teeth because mine were so crooked growing up, and I am proud of having a healthy and pleasant smile.
During my free time, I am always down for an adventure. I love being outside, whether I'm walking with my dog, kayaking, camping or swimming. I love all things outdoors. I enjoy staying active by going to the gym with my friends and dancing away the worries of the world. I also enjoy food of all kinds; there aren't many foods I don't like, and I'm willing to try anything once.
The next big adventure I hope to have is visiting Colorado and skiing in the Rockies. In the meantime, I will go wherever the wind takes me!

I am originally from South Jersey; however I have lived in North Jersey and New York before moving to Atlanta. I have always loved doing administration work, and I am happy to be a part of Marietta Dental Professionals. I enjoy meeting new people, engaging in conversations with our patients, and learning new cultures. I also plan on expanding my adventures by traveling and seeing the world. Above all, my main focus is to help our patients with any questions they may have in regards to verifying their insurance policies and copays. I also assist in developing treatment plans based on their unique cases to get them healthy as soon as possible.
