Please tell us a little about your entrepreneurial journey

Dr Nirali Patel: I have always dreamed of starting my own state-of-the-art dental practice to make a significant difference in the field of dentistry.

However, it wasn’t easy in the beginning, especially as a female entrepreneur, to juggle my personal and professional commitments. But I was determined to make my vision a reality. I am into practice since 2011 and under the name of my hospital in Ahmedabad named Smile Craft Dental Studio since 2015.

Over time, with hard work and dedication, I have managed to grow my practice in such a way that we have established ourselves as a leading name in the field of dentistry in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

My commitment to excellence, combined with my skills and pioneering spirit in adopting the latest technology, has allowed us to become Gujarat’s first Digital Smile Design Center.

By adapting in-house CAD CAM facilities, we have been able to offer our patients the latest and most advanced treatment options available.

We are proud to provide our patients with personalized care, combining cutting-edge technology and the latest techniques to achieve the best possible outcomes.

My entrepreneurial journey has been challenging, but it has also been incredibly rewarding. I am grateful to have the opportunity to pursue my passion and make a difference in the lives of my patients.

I am committed to continuing to grow my practice, offering the latest advancements in dentistry, and providing the best possible care to my patients.

How do you stay up to date with the latest advancements in dental surgery and implantology, and incorporate them into your practice?

Dr Nirali Patel: As a dental surgeon and oral implantologist, I believe in the constant upgradation and growth of self and my business.

To ensure that my practice stays up-to-date with the latest advancements in dental surgery and implantology, I make it a priority to learn at least one new skill each year or adapt a new technique every year of my professional journey.

Staying abreast of the latest advancements in dentistry allows me to remain ahead of the competition and offer my patients the highest quality care possible.

By keeping up with the latest research and attending conferences and seminars, I can incorporate new techniques and procedures into my practice, ensuring that my patients receive the most advanced and effective treatments available.

In addition to staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in dental surgery and implantology, I also run my own private academy.

Through this academy, I have the opportunity to connect with experts in dentistry, bringing them directly to my doorstep.

This not only allows me to stay informed about the latest research and developments in the field but also provides me with access to a network of professionals with whom I can collaborate and share ideas.

Through my private academy, I can also offer continuing education and training to other dental professionals, helping to raise the standard of care in our field.

What are some common misconceptions people have about oral health, and how do you address them in your practice?

Dr Nirali Patel: At my practice, we believe in empowering our patients with accurate information about their oral health.

Unfortunately, there are many common misconceptions that people have about oral health. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions we encounter and how we address them:

“I don’t have any oral health issues, so I don’t need to see a dentist regularly.”

Many people believe that they only need to see a dentist when they have a problem or are experiencing pain. However, regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health and catching any potential problems early.

We encourage our patients to schedule regular appointments, even if they feel that their oral health is in good condition.

  • “Flossing isn’t necessary.”
  • “Whitening toothpaste can replace professional teeth whitening.”
  • And many more..

At our practice, we have a strong team dedicated to patient counseling at every stage of their oral care journey.

We take the time to listen to our patients’ concerns and provide them with accurate information to address any misconceptions they may have.

By educating our patients, we can help them make informed decisions about their oral health and maintain a healthy smile for life.

Could you walk us through the process of placing dental implants, and how you ensure a successful outcome for your patients?

Dr Nirali Patel: At our practice, we utilize the latest 3D imaging and 3D CAD CAM technologies to provide our patients with the most advanced care available.

Our approach to dental implant placement involves digital planning using 3D imaging technology, which allows us to precisely plan and visualize the placement of the implant before the surgery.

By using this technology, we are able to perform immediate implant dentistry and give our patients faster and more accurate results.

This digital planning process helps us to minimize any risks associated with the surgery and ensures that the implant is placed in the optimal position for long-term success.

Once the digital planning is complete, we use 3D CAD CAM technologies to create custom-made restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, that will be attached to the implant.

These restorations are designed with the utmost precision, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance.

At our practice, we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality care and the most advanced technology available.

By using 3D imaging and 3D CAD CAM technologies, we are able to offer faster and more accurate results, as well as minimize any risks associated with dental implant surgery.

Our goal is to ensure a successful outcome for our patients and help them achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

How do you customize treatment plans for each patient’s unique needs and concerns, while still providing high-quality care?

Dr Nirali Patel: At our practice, we understand that every patient is unique, with their own set of needs and concerns. That’s why we take a personalized approach to every treatment plan, ensuring that each patient receives the highest quality care tailored specifically to their needs.

Our team of specialists doctors work together to provide comprehensive care, and we take great care to document every detail of a patient’s oral health history, concerns, and goals.

This information helps us to develop a treatment plan that is customized to their unique needs and preferences.

We also utilize the latest digital technology, such as the Digital Smile Designing tool, to help us design and plan a unique blueprint for each new smile we create.

This advanced tool allows us to create a visual representation of the patient’s new smile, taking into account their facial structure, tooth shape, and color preferences.

By using this tool, we can ensure that the patient is fully involved in the design process and that the end result meets their expectations.

Throughout the treatment process, we remain in close communication with the patient, addressing any concerns or questions they may have and providing ongoing support and guidance.

Our goal is to ensure that every patient receives personalized, high-quality care that meets their unique needs and helps them achieve their desired outcome.

How do you ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience for patients who may be nervous about dental procedures?

Dr Nirali Patel: We understand that many patients may experience anxiety or nervousness when it comes to dental procedures.

To ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience, we take the time to explain each step of the process and answer any questions the patient may have.

We also offer sedation options to help alleviate anxiety and discomfort during the procedure. Additionally, we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment in our practice to help put our patients at ease.

What advice do you have for individuals who may be considering dental implants or other cosmetic dental procedures?

Dr Nirali Patel: If you’re considering dental implants or other cosmetic dental procedures, I would advise you to schedule a consultation with an experienced and qualified dental professional.

During the consultation, the dentist can evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals and expectations.

They can also explain the various treatment options available and help you determine the best course of action based on your unique needs and preferences.

It’s important to choose a dentist who has extensive experience in performing the procedure you’re considering, and who uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible outcome.

Additionally, be sure to ask about the cost and financing options available, and make sure you fully understand the risks and benefits of the procedure before making a decision.

What are your future goals and aspirations for your practice and the field of dental surgery and implantology as a whole?

Dr Nirali Patel: My future goals and aspirations for my practice and the field of dental surgery and implantology involve expanding and reaching a larger audience throughout the entire country by opening multiple centers in different regions.

This will allow us to provide premium and personalized quality care to a larger mass of people. Additionally, I plan to continue staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the field and incorporating the latest techniques into our practice.

I also aim to collaborate with other dental professionals and organizations to further advance the field of dental surgery and implantology.

Ultimately, my goal is to create a positive impact in the lives of our patients and the wider community, by promoting better oral health and improving overall wellbeing.
