Remal was born and raised in Tampa and attended K-12 in Brandon, FL. During his early years, he had an interest in science and chemistry. He later attended the University of Florida and majored in Economics to learn broader aspects of the world, but soon he became interested in becoming a dentist. He wanted a career that would be helpful to his community and was more hands on on a day-to-day basis, so he began shadowing dentists and found that he loved the routine as well as the unique aspects of dentistry. He attended Nova Southeastern for his doctorate education in dentistry.

Upon graduating, he moved back to the Tampa area and began his career. After years of experience and rotation through multiple clinics as an associate of another practice, he decided to make the transition to opening his own practice.

Outside the office, Remal likes to spend time playing golf and watching football. He is a hometown fan of the Rays and Tampa Bay Bucs.

Jacque B. - Office Manager

Welcome to our practice!

As the office manager, I love greeting our patients and helping with insurance matters and treatment planning. I have been working here since 2006 and have been in the dental field since 1989.

The best part of my job is meeting new people, building relationships with them, and seeing the final results after treatment. Dr. Remal Patel is a great doctor and is always focused on the needs and goals of each individual patient.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, my daughter, and my new grandson!

Katlyne S. - Registered Dental Hygienist

I work with Dr. Remal Patel as a registered dental hygienist, performing regular cleanings as well as deep cleanings, such as scaling and root planing. I also take radiographic x-rays and provide patients with educational information for the overall health and esthetic improvement of their smile.

I love to see the difference I can make in a patient's smile. When I perform a cleaning on a patient who hasn't seen a dentist in a number of years and the patient is happy with what I have done, it really makes my day.

I am the proud mother of two beautiful children named Cassandra and Jordan. I enjoy reading and spending time with my family, traveling, and doing fun activities.

Karen A. - Dental Assistant

My duties as Dr. Remal Patel's dental assistant include helping with patient care and sterilizing instruments.

I love working with people, helping to make them feel totally comfortable before any procedure, and talking to them about what to expect for treatment and home care. I am passionate about what I do and really enjoy making a difference in the smiles of our patients.

In my family, I have one adult son, Nicholas, and my Great Dane, Niko. I love swimming, jet skiing, boating, and white water rafting
