About Dr. Patel

Dr Dhruvin Patel’s interest in dentistry developed early in his life. As a teenager he used to visit his father’s dental surgery and saw him bring smiles to his patient’s faces through the care and service he provided.

As years passed, Dr Patel’s love for dentistry grew and he graduated in 2008 followed by a Grad. Certificate in Clinical Dentistry from the University of Melbourne, Royal Dental Hospital in 2010. Later that year, Dr Patel was awarded the prestigious Pierre Fauchard Award for outstanding academic achievement.

Dr Patel is a very passionate and caring dentist who comes highly recommended for his gentle hands and diverse dental expertise which includes Smile Makeovers, Orthodontics (Braces and Invisalign), Dental Implants and Kids Dentistry.

Dr Patel strongly believes it’s not only important but prudent to keep abreast with the latest in dentistry because his patients deserve the best! He invests more than 100 hours of continuing education a year, about five times the national average.

About Dr. Guerin

Originally from Canada, Camille graduated from University of Montreal in 2017. After almost two years of private practice in Montreal, she decided it was time for me to seek new adventures and challenges. This brought her to Australia, where she has been practising since the beginning of 2019. 

Although she enjoys most aspects of general dentistry, surgery is definitely her favourite discipline.
