Dr. Amish Patel enjoys getting to know his patients by having fun, joking, and chatting with them while he's helping them to achieve optimal oral health and beautiful smiles. Dr. Patel truly believes proper oral hygiene and care leads to better overall health and happiness for patients. He and his entire team are dedicated to helping their patients achieve their best and most healthy smiles in a professional, relaxing environment.
Dr. Patel earned his BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Missouri in 2004 and his DDS from UMKC School of Dentistry in 2009.
Prior to providing dental care at Atchison Family Dentistry, Dr. Patel was an Associate Dentist in Kansas City where, in addition to providing patient care at a private office, he worked with many organizations including the MO National Guard, MO Department of Corrections, and HOPE Outreach.
Dr. Patel and his entire team are dedicated to maintaining the highest level of dental knowledge so that they, in turn, can provide their patients with first-class care and education to achieve their oral health goals. To keep up with the ever-changing dentistry world and the latest techniques and findings, the entire team completes numerous hours of continuing education in a variety of subjects every year.
When Dr. Patel is not working with patients or brushing up on the latest dentistry news, he enjoys running, watching sports (Go Chiefs! Go Royals!), exploring new restaurants and things to do in Kansas City, traveling and spending time with his wife, 18-month old son (and another on the way!), family and friends.
Commitment to Community
Dr. Patel says, “The town of Atchison has made me feel right at home. I have enjoyed getting to know many local patients from Atchison as well as surrounding towns and feel like I have known them for years! I have also loved getting to know the town's culture, history, and character.” Dr. Patel strives to give back to the local community through charitable donations and giving to local schools, churches, and drives; one of his favorite events is the Atchison County Backpack Giveaway every August.
“My goal at Atchison Family Dentistry is simple: to provide a dental office that is the first choice for oral care for families in Atchison and the surrounding community. We strive to keep things simple and convenient and offer solutions that meet each patient’s values and interests in their oral health. We understand choosing a dentist is an important decision and reassure you that our highly professional, knowledgeable, and caring team strives to put your needs first. We are excited to meet you and look forward to getting to know you and your family!”
