FROM ANOTHER DOCTOR IN THE AREA: "As a Dentist, I have the opportunity to see the results of many orthodontists. Dr. Patil's patients ALWAYS have the teeth in perfect alignment, so I chose to have him treat my child. I was assuming treatment would take 2-3 years; much to my surprise, Dr. Patil described his technique that allows for faster treatment times, predicting 18 months. It has been 14 months and we are now in the stage of perfecting tooth position. Dr. Patil's experience as a cosmetic dentist shows in his finishing treatment of patients. We are so happy and pleased with the results." - Dr. Michael DDS
