Dr. Zarna Patel, a licensed general dentist, graduated from University of the Pacific with a Bachelor of Science in 2015 before moving across the country to attend New York University College of Dentistry, where she graduated in 2019. During her time at NYU, Dr. Z held leadership positions in the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) on both the collegiate and district levels and served as a student liaison for the New York County Dental Society.
Dr. Z fell in love with dentistry as a young adult – admiring the long-lasting relationships formed between patients and practitioners and how compassionate clinicians can reduce anxiety and dental fear in patients. She was inspired to make a similar impact for patients in her own community. Dr. Z builds trusting relationships with patients by providing the same level of kindness, attention, and transparency she would provide to her own family. Her desire to partner with her patients to fully understand their concerns while providing excellent care makes her the perfect fit for Martins Dental Partners.
Outside of work, Dr. Z has a passion for arts and gastronomy, and enjoys exercising, traveling, and reading. She spends her free time with her family, friends, and turtle Leonardo.
