Meet Dr. Neal Patel

Neal Patel, DMD

Dr. Neal Patel is seeing patients in our Blakeney location, one day a week. We are thrilled to offer more office hours and greater appointment flexibility to our patients with Dr. Patel on our team.

A true Carolinian, Dr. Neal Patel grew up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was the valedictorian of his high school class, and he attended Duke University for his undergraduate education where he received his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in economics. After college, Dr. Patel was accepted into dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine. He graduated near the top of his class and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.

Upon graduation, Dr. Patel moved to Louisville, Kentucky to continue his education. He was accepted as one of six residents into the University of Louisville Department of Orthodontics, a prestigious full-time, 2-year program known for its intensive clinical training. Dr. Patel then graduated with his certificate in Orthodontics and his Masters of Science in Dentistry.

His orthodontic training includes Invisalign certification and experience with all of the latest orthodontic technologies. He also practices orthodontics in Shelby, NC where his office specializes in a broad range of orthodontic treatment for both children and adults.
