Meet Our Dentists

Drs. Nilash and Nitash Patel were born in London, England, and settled in Tampa as boys when their parents moved to Florida in 1979. The Patel brothers both chose to become cosmetic and family dentists, and both wanted to practice their profession in their adopted hometown, the Tampa Bay area. Together, in 2004, they opened Serenity Dental’s first office in South Central Pasco County, near the bustling commercial intersection of State Road 54 and Collier Parkway in Land O’Lakes (serving Lutz, Odessa, Trinity, and beyond).

They since have expanded their services throughout Pasco County, with additional offices in Wesley Chapel (serving New Tampa) and Zephyrhills (serving Dade City, Lakeland, and San Antonio). They chose the name Serenity Dental to convey their compassionate approach to the dental arts, which is a commitment to confront the natural anxiety people experience when they visit dentists. They are dedicated to doing everything possible to put patients at ease regardless of the procedure.

It’s always been important to the Patel brothers that they really get to know their patients – and vice versa. For instance, both doctors have given back by volunteering to perform dental work in disaster-stricken regions such as Haiti and Guatemala, a practice they plan to continue whenever and wherever the need arises.

Dr. Nilash S. Patel graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry after earning a bachelor’s degree in science and a master’s degree in Public Health from the University of South Florida in Tampa. He is certified in orthodontics and Invisalign®, with an emphasis cosmetic orthodontics for adults and late teenagers. He continues to take advanced dental courses on a regular basis in order to remain updated on the latest innovations in the profession, including facial esthetics.

Dr. Nitash S. Patel also graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry after earning a bachelor’s degree in biology (with a minor in chemistry) in three years from the University of Miami. His prosthodontics fellowship at the University of Florida focused on complex cases, including full-mouth reconstructions, implant-related restorations, prosthetic treatment for cancer patients, correction of cleft palates, and complex cosmetic makeovers. He continues to enjoy the challenge of working on full-mouth reconstruction cases for his patients, but he is equally committed to comprehensive cosmetic and general dental care for the entire family. Dr. Nitash Patel has considerable expertise and experience in dental implant placement and restoration. He teaches implant procedures to other dentists in The Implant Institute of Tampa, located in our Lutz/Land O’Lakes office.

Both dentists are dedicated to compassionate, affordable dental care and enjoy serving patients of all ages.
