Dr. Shekha Patel was raised on South Florida’s east coast and graduated with honors from Satellite Beach High School. She attended the University of Central Florida and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Microbiology. She went on to receive her dental degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville where she met and married her husband, Rafael who is also a dentist.
After working with a very talented pediatric dentist for three years she decided to pursue her dream of working with children and completed her Pediatric mini-residency program at the University of Florida. Working with children for the last 10 years has given her fulfillment beyond her expectations. She feels honored to give a child the right start to a healthier smile.
Dr. Patel believes that children do not have to dislike going to the dentist. With this belief in mind she takes her time to make sure everyone including you, the parent and your child feel cared for in an environment full of trust. She strives to help every parent understand their child’s unique dental needs. As a mother of two young children she understands and encourages each parent’s participation in their child’s dental visits.
Dr. Patel is excited to start her journey with Dr. Matos and his team. The comfortable and caring environment she finds at Stuart Pediatric Dentistry is one that is nurturing and unique. Dr. Patel can’t wait to meet you and your family!
