A letter from Dr. choi

Dear friends and patients,

After 35 years of dental practice, I have decided it is time for me to retire.

It has been my great pleasure caring for you and your families these many years. I have always striven to maintain the respect and trust you have given me and to provide you with the best dental care.

I have searched for a colleague who shares the same philosophy for and dedication to patient care as I have in my practice. I am pleased to announce that I have found such a colleague in Dr. Mili Patel, who will continue caring for my patients.

Dr. Patel graduated from the prestigious New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry with highest honors and has been practicing dentistry in private practice setting for over 10 years in Orange County, the same county in which she lives with her spouse and daughter.

She has extensive experience in all phases of dentistry, including dental implants, restorative and cosmetic procedures, endodontic treatments, dentures, oral surgery, and Invisalign orthodontic treatment.

Starting immediately, Dr. Patel will be taking over responsibility for your dental health. She will continue to provide the same warm and gentle care that I have to tried to give all my patients. I encourage all of you to come in to meet Dr. Patel.

Thank you all so very much for your years of dedication to our practic. It has truly been an honor to be entrusted with your dental care and to get to now you and your family over the ears of our regular visits. I know that you will give Dr. Patel the same support you have given me.

Our patients say.

My favorite new dentist!! my old dentist retired and i was nervous about going somewhere new. when i walked in the was a big happy greeting from the receptionist and she offered me a freshly baked cookie and a coffee. this was a great start. when i was taken back to the room they had a great selection of movies.

The assistant Michelle took some painless x-rays and answered all my questions very thoroughly. then Dr. Patel came to see me, she was very sweet and honest with me. The manager Giuvia had checked my insurance before i even came into the office so I didnt need to wait at all. i had a few cavities and they were able to fill them that same day. 2 cavities only took an hour and time flew by because i was watching Oceans Eleven. I remember the dentist being very stressful but everyone here made it very comfortable for me.

I am definitely coming here for my dental needs from now on. I'd recommend them to anyone.

I decided to update my review since the first time I visited this office I needed a simple filling, but this last time... oh this last time, I needed a couple of extractions, the fact that I needed a complicated procedure coupled with the fact that I have an unreasonable fear of dentists gave me extreme anxiety.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Patel, she is absolutely the sweetest dentist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only was she gentle and kind but she even followed up with me after my visit to make sure that I was okay and not to traumatized (since when I was in the office I made it very clear that I had anxiety).

Overall this last visit left a great taste in my mouth! (Pun intended). I live in San Diego but will continue to do the long drive to visit this office

I had my first visit to this office earlier this week for a tooth extraction. I'm the first person to admit that I'm a difficult patient, but Dr. Patel and Esmyra, the dental assistant, were absolute professionals and did a brilliant job taking care of me.

Dr. Patel constantly made sure that I was properly anesthetized and took great care in explaining alternative treatment options to me before I underwent the procedure.

Happy to say that I've found a new permanent dentist!

Absolutely the most caring, most professional dental practice I have ever known!

Dr. Patel is knowledgeable and caring, always looking out for the best outcomes for her patients.

The staff members are gentle and kind, taking their time to explain procedures and equipment, while working around my fears and reflexes.

Dr. Patel was great. I had a dental emergency and was seen the same day. She explained my problem in great length and settled my nerves. I am so thankful I found such a great doctor and staff for all my dental needs. I highly recommend this office!

Dr. Patel is an empathic dentist. She took care of my daughter and explained everything to her in detail. The whole office staff was extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Patel and Terri are priceless. Thank you for the wonderful dental care and experience you offered my daughter.
