Dr. Keya Patel was raised in Suwanee and attended the University of Georgia, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She completed her Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Upon graduating, Dr. Patel stayed in Las Vegas further to be in private practice, where she was known for providing comprehensive care and making patients feel comfortable and valued. During this time, she was very excited to accept a position as part-time faculty at the Endodontic Department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Being a true southerner, though, Dr. Patel returned to her roots in 2019 and is happy to be back in the company of her friends and family.
Committed to lifelong learning and teaching, Dr. Patel has completed over 300 hours of continuing education in Implantology and is an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. She believes that providing a high standard of care for her patients includes educating and involving her patients in their own dental health. She is spearheading the introduction of technology into the practice to further help patients understand their dental needs.
In her free time, Dr. Patel enjoys hiking, traveling, and soaking up the sun! She’s always lugging the camera around and deeply enjoys photography. She also enjoys volunteer dentistry, both locally and internationally. Her favorite dental trip has been to Costa Rica, where she served as a dental provider and Spanish-English translator.
