"As a Dentist, I have the opportunity to see the results of many orthodontists. Dr. Patil's patients had 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

 Dr. Raj Patil was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs.  He received his Bachelors degree with a focus in Biological Sciences and Child Psychology. He then continued on to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Iowa.  His research on anxiety, stress and fear of patients in dental treatment has been internationally published.  He received multiple scholarships and awards for his clinical skills, academic excellence, taught doctorate level classes, mentored new residents and graduated toward the top of his class.

 

For the next 12 years Dr. Patil owned and practiced Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Denver and then furthered his education to specialize in the field of orthodontics to help change people's lives by creating beautiful smiles!  He completed his three-year residency and received a Masters of Science degree and attained his Dental Orthodontic Specialty Certification at the prestigious University of Oklahoma. His graduate research was on understanding biological bone effects of orthodontics using Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). He works to preserve natural teeth and bone in his approach.

 

In 2010, the lure of Colorado called him back and Dr. Patil established his own Orthodontic Practices in Longmont and Erie.  Dr. Patil is known as a best orthodontist in Longmont and Erie thus developed an outstanding reputation for high quality, highly effective treatment and efficient results through his vast clinical experience.  He works meticulously to align teeth with the healthiest gum and bone support, coordinating the best jaw joint position with the best dental fit and sustainable results.
