Meet Dr. Trusha Patel, BDS, MPH, MsD


Born and raised in India, most of Dr. Trusha Patel’s childhood years were spent in a boarding school allowing her to be independent, well exposed and self-reliant very early on. Her interest in dentistry came much later as her visits to an orthodontist began. Dr. Patel pursued her interest and graduated with a Bachelors of Dental Surgery degree from Bharati Vidyapeeth Dental College in Pune, India. Having practiced general dentistry for a while, the need for further education in this ever transforming technical field became imperative. Her liking for endodontics stood out more than other treatments. Getting her patients out of pain and providing relief has been a gratifying experience for her. Dr. Patel pursued and graduated with a Master of Science in Endodontics from Boston University. She also has a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Rutgers University. Both of these degrees allow for a well-balanced clinical and research knowledge, to provide best care for her patients.

After graduation she moved to Houston where she has found the city warm with congenial people. Currently, she holds board eligibility with the American Board of Endodontics and a member of the American Association of Endodontics.
