Dr. Dhruvina Patel grew up in Louisville and attended the University of Louisville for her undergraduate degree in Biology as well as the School of Dentistry. In high school, Dr. Patel was part of the Norton Healthcare Program that introduced students to different fields of healthcare. This is where she developed her interest in dentistry. Being highly motivated is something that comes easy to Dr. Patel, but being able to connect with patients, helping to make a difference in their smile and giving back to the community is what she enjoys most about dentistry. In her spare time, Dr. Patel enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and activities outside such as hiking and canoeing.
