Dr. Patel and her team operate by the Golden Rule for exceptional patient treatment. As a pediatric dental clinic, we specialize in caring for children from infancy to their teen years and follow the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) guidelines.
We put children’s oral health first with a strong foundation in preventative care. Our patient-focused care is education-based, aimed to encourage healthy behaviors with positive experiences so children can benefit from a lifetime of excellent oral health.
We are committed to caring for your child as if they were our own. In partnership with you, we can work together to make sure your child and family feel at home in our clinic whether for a checkup, treatment, or in an emergency.
Dr. Patel attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH earning a BA in Medical Anthropology. She completed her dental training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI where she met her husband, Dr. Michael Hosking (an Endodontist). Wanting to get more experience with medically compromised patients, dental trauma, emergencies, special needs patients and advanced surgical procedures, she completed a 1-year hospital based general practice residency (GPR) in Madison, WI.
She moved to San Antonio and worked as a general dentist and part time clinical faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio while her husband completed his specialty residency. Realizing that treating pediatric and special needs patients was her passion; she was accepted to the 2-year residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and concurrently completed a Masters in Public Health from the University of Texas at Houston.
Dr. Patel is an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Florida Dental Association (FDA), American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), Florida Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (FAPD), Central Florida District Dental Association (CFDDA) and the Brevard County Dental Society.
Dr. Patel spent time in Brevard County while applying to dental school and loved learning how to surf on Patrick Air Force Beach and going for long runs on Cocoa Beach. Her husband proposed to her on Patrick Air Force Beach and they got married in Palm Coast, FL (Wedding Video!). They now call Viera home and are excited to be a part of the growing vibrant community.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with husband, their adorable infant son, and going on walks with their fur baby (Nemo), cooking/eating international cuisine, dancing and running. She is classically trained in a few styles of Indian dance and loves supporting the arts and cultural activities.
The Viera Pediatric Dentistry family is excited to share our kid friendly space with you and yours. Our office theme is "Brevard County" and we love celebrating our community and the beautiful place we call home. We have partnered with Studios of Cocoa Beach to become an art space to rotate pieces for sale from local artists to inspire our little patients to find the beauty in every day. We know your child is your greatest treasure. So we make it our mission to treat each child as if they were our own. Because when it comes to our own kids, only the best will do! Please call us for an appointment or to schedule a tour of our facilities to see if it's the right place for your littles.
