I feel gifted to have the opportunity to help my patients improve their health and appearance through optimum dental care, customized to their needs. We have a very talented team that helps our doctors provide this level of care. Our patients are unique and diverse, making every day a new adventure.

I wish to serve you in the most caring, conscientious way possible. You can expect me to be fun, yet straightforward, kind, compassionate, and gentle. My staff and I are committed to providing you and your loved ones with excellent dentistry. I am very proud of the quality of dentistry we provide, and of the true value of dental care that we can give to our community.

After receiving my dental degree from the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom in 1992, I continued on to do an extra year of training in general dentistry at the same school. I have always wanted to move to California and having attained my California license in 1997, I have been working in the Inland Empire since.

I have been living in Corona for over 10 years with my wife and three children, and am proud to be part of this community. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family as well as cooking, hiking, and traveling. I truly appreciate you giving us the opportunity to serve you and your family.

Dr. Shital Patel

Thank you for visiting us. I’m happy to say that my profession enables me to meet and build relationships with many different people. I really enjoy becoming a part of my patients’ lives and earning the trust they put in me to partner with them in their oral health care. Every new person I work with presents a new challenge and keeps my job exciting.

I think it is essential to stay up to date on all the latest techniques and procedures. Being on the leading edge of technology is very important to me because I can bring the very best quality of care to my patients.

In our office, we strive to give every patient a wonderful, comfortable experience. The sound of laughter can often be heard in our office. We just love to have fun and hope you’ll join in soon.

I graduated from the University of Wales in the United Kingdom in 1991, then continued on to complete an additional year of training at the University of London. Having visited California a few times, I knew this is where I wanted to be. I attained my California license in 1999 and have been practicing dentistry in Corona with Dr. Rakesh since 2000.

I am a strong believer in dentistry really making a difference in people’s lives, from the confidence of a beautiful, engaging smile to the overall health benefits of a healthy mouth. When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my wife and my two daughters, and I enjoy playing golf and skiing.

I look forward to meeting with you and making your next dental visit your best ever.
