Our motto is Live Healthy, Smile Healthy, and your initial consultation will last about 90 minutes, and will allow us to get to know you personally. Besides discussing your goals and how we can help you achieve them, your visit will also grant you the chance to get to know our team and learn more about what you can expect.

In addition to the highly-personalized treatment we provide, our office is also packed with amenities (like Netflix during your treatment!) and is designed with a strong focus on patient comfort.

Doctor of Dental Surgery

Dr. Kalpesh Patel

Having been raised in Texarkana, I am definitely a home grown Texan. In May of 2006, I completed my dental training at one of the most prestigious dental schools in the nation, Baylor College of Dentistry. There was no doubt that I would make Dallas my home and would eventually start my own practice in the DFW area.

My passion for dentistry, coupled with my love for people, motivated me to establish my own practice. In June of 2009, Dr. Joseph Strickland and I partnered together to open Active Dental of Irving. Since then, we have been helping individuals attain healthy, beautiful smiles. In December of 2009, we established our second practice, Active Dental of Grand Prairie. You can imagine how excited we were to extend our services to more members of our community!

My mission has always been to provide world class dental service. Staying up to date with the latest technology and most current techniques enables me to provide only the best care to all my patients. My dental team shares in that same vision, which is why we are successful at making everyone, feel right at home.

On a personal level, I accomplished yet another milestone in January 2013 when I married my best friend, Hetal. Now I am working on getting her to join me on supporting the best basketball team out there, the Dallas Mavericks!

I invite you and your family to come and experience a better dental office!

If you need to reach me, I am available at kpateldds@activedentalonline.com.
