Maple Park Dental is Proud to Announce a New Associate Dentist to Our Naperville Practice Dr. Paraj Patel
Dr. Paraj Patel is excited to be joining the Maple Park Dental Family and we are ecstatic to have him. He welcomes his patients with a warm smile and takes his time getting to know their background. Dr. Patel places great emphasis on taking a holistic approach, because he feels many health disorders can be eradicated if the body is treated as a whole.
Soon after being born in Philadelphia, Dr. Patel and his family moved back to India. 11 years later he moved to New Jersey where received most of his formal schooling. Following high school, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from New Jersey Institute of Technology/Rutgers State University of New Jersey, then a Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree form Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL. Dr. Patel instantly fell in love with the warm and loving people of the greater Chicagoland area, and chose to make this area his home.

Dr. Patel received the Odontographic Society Award for excellence in Clinical Skill and Leadership, and the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine Award for Clinical Skill and Leadership.
