Dr. Jay Patel began his education in New Jersey at Rutgers University, enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh and was exposed to many specialties in the dental field; none drew his interest as much as anesthesiology. He continued his post-graduate education at NYU Lutheran Medical Center and trained at a Level 1 trauma center in Brooklyn, NY. During this time, Dr. Patel completed over 1500 cases involving all levels of anesthesia and treated a broad spectrum of patients; including those with complex medical histories.
Since completing his anesthesia residency, Dr. Patel has become Board-Certified by the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology. Dr. Patel works with some of the top dentists in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania and is concentrated on delivering top quality and safe sedation services. Patients are screened preemptively to ensure that any potential complications can be anticipated and avoided. Dr. Patel hopes to usher in a new era of dentistry where fear can be eliminated from dental visits. He works with the pediatric population, special needs population, and severe dental phobics, where his skill set has proven invaluable.
