About Dr. Patankar

Education

  • University of Florida – Bachelors of Science in Chemistry
  • Barry University – Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences
  • Nova Southeastern University – Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry 

Born in India, raised in sunny south Florida. I attended the University of Florida for my undergraduate education, and Barry University for a master’s degree. Attended Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. After graduation, I moved to and practiced in northern Virginia for a few years. I along with my brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and parents decided Houston would be a great place to settle, so we made the move here!

I strongly believe in patient education and information and try to stay up to date with my understanding of what dentistry has to offer. My focus in patient care is being a dental Sherpa or guide for my patients. When communicating dental concerns/treatments my goal is to best answer two questions for all my patients: What are we doing? And why are we doing it?

Outside of dentistry I enjoy cooking, talking to people and learning about anything new that I didn’t know already. To me learning leads to humility. I also enjoy exploring new restaurants and bars, as well as following cricket and soccer. Recently I have re-acquired my taste for football by getting into fantasy football.
