Mike is a retired fire fighter and proud father who is extremely busy coordinating professional swim coaching for his son. He is a loyal family man helping everyone in family. As a result of his family and work responsibilities, Mike was unable to get regular dental care and came to see us when he broke a tooth. During the initial consultation, Dr. Patel realized deep dental problems due to occlusal (BITE) problems and took appropriate steps to preserve the remaining natural teeth. Through bite correction, we were able enhance his smile as well as improve its function.
We were all are proud to serve this service man and a Good Samaritan!

Richard worked in the automobile and construction industries before his recent retirement. He still loves working with his pals at a friend’s local warehouse working on machines . After achieving all of his remaining goals, his dental health became his priority and now he wants a new smile. Richard has realized that over a period of years his teeth had become loose. During a consultation, Dr. Patel realized that Richard had advanced periodontitis (a gum infection) along with crowding (excess) of teeth.
The best course of treatment was to replace all of Richard’s natural teeth with dental implant secured dentures. Richard now fully enjoys his retirement with a smile to cherish at all of his favorite places, including his “man cave”!

Loyd is retired and spends time in both Michigan and Florida engaging in his favorite activity, cruising! He loves to traveling, but was increasingly concerned about his smile which seemed to be “disappearing”. Dr. Patel diagnosed an underlying and previously undiagnosed bite problem which was contributing to teeth grinding, thus shortening and damaging his teeth over time.
Dr. Patel formulated a conservative treatment plan to adjust and balance his bite, while at the same time giving him a smile to cherish for years to come. Loyd is currently pursuing treatment and has completed partial treatment with temporary teeth.
Even with temporary teeth, he is happy to get his smile back and start sailing again!

Colbert did not establish good dental and oral hygiene habits as a young person. As an adult he continued to neglect his dental care until his children began to comment on his poor oral health. He contacted us at Manatee Advanced Dental Care when he decided to seek help. When Dr. Patel met Colbert he had multiple teeth with severe decay. Dr. Patel formulated a treatment plan to remove the entire top arch of teeth and replace them with a cosmetic denture. He was able to save some of the healthy lower teeth and replace others using a partial denture.
Now his proud children can not stop bragging about their dad’s smile!

Pamela was an infrequent visitor to the dentist due to dental anxiety and fear. She could not establish herself at a dentist office and only visited the dentist for emergency pain. Through our consultation, we recognized her anxiety and were able to create a personalized treatment plan that would save the best possible teeth and replace damaged teeth. The end result is a beautiful and functional smile.
As a result of our treatment, we were also able to calm her anxiety about future visits to the dentist and now she regularly visits us for optimal dental care.
