Welcome to our website! I am Dr. Rupande Patel, the pediatric dentist at Smile Island Dental. As a mom myself, I understand the language that children speak and the need to communicate with them in a way that makes them feel safe and comfortable.
Your little ones will enjoy their trips to see us, I promise! Please take a minute to read the testimonials below and I look forward to adding your words soon. Please call so I can help your child to start their journey to great dental health.
Dr. Patel has cared for the dental health of my three children for the past decade. Shortly after moving to Dallas, we found Dr. Patel through Dallas Child Magazine. After researching her credentials and customer reviews, we decided to see her for our oldest child's first dentist visit when he was 4. Having a fear of dentists myself, I sought a dentist who would allow me to be present in the room with my child, as well as someone who had a gentle bedside manner and was good-natured with children. In addition to these requirements, Dr. Patel's experience was particularly impressive, as she also serves to instruct dental students at Baylor's College of Dentistry! Dr. Patel has exceeded our expectations through the years, and our family has loyally grown with her and thrived under her care. Our children are on the doorstep of transitioning to adult dental care, and because of their childhood dental experiences with Dr. Patel, they have no fear of maintaining a healthy smile. We highly recommend Rupande Patel for pediatric dentistry!Amanda Thomas
Dr. Patel and staff have provided my children with exceptional dental care, for several years now. They are very attentive to the needs and fears of kids. It is hard to believe that my children actually look forward to their dental appointments! I highly recommend Smile Island Dental to anyone searching for a top notch pediatric dentist.Idolina Garcia
We went to our regular dentist when my son was nine and when they wanted to do cavity work, he became very scared and freaked out. We took him to Dr. Patel and she has such a fun, creative, innovative way of working with children that he didn’t have any problem when she performed any of the work. I love the way they rename dental procedures like shots into a more fun name! I also find her staff to be very pleasant and professional.Christine Nichols
Dr. Patel and her staff run an incredible practice! We know we will get the best they have to offer every time we walk in the door, from check-in, to cleanings, exams, special services, through billing and payment. Her staff is patient with my questions and have always worked to help me wade through questions with our insurance. The ladies at the front always have a smile for the kids and me. Ashli Young
