Meet the Doctors
Meet the Doctors at Parkway Dental|Snellville, GA
Honestly, I love all of our patients, and the ones that have seen the largest transformations are the ones that came in scared, nervous, had a bad experiences in another office, unfortunately were shipped to multiple offices as we mentioned before, but Dr. Patel and myself do a lot of stuff in-house here. But the ability for us to do all of those things and transform the patient’s smile in a short period of time – very rewarding.
