Mark R., West Hartford

I had to go to different dental practice because West Hartford Family Dentistry was out-of-network for my present insurance coverage. However, after I was no longer a patient, I experienced a problem with a crown that WHFD had installed over my dental implant. The problem was caused by me -- too much jaw pressure during sleep had loosened the crown. Even though I was no longer a patient, WHFD fixed the problem -- without charge! And they were able to squeeze me in right away, as I had informed them that I was leaving the country within a few days. I was both surprised and impressed. If it weren't for the insurance coverage issue, I would still be with WHFD.

Susan C., Bloomfield

I've lived in a number of major cities, as well as abroad, in my 61 yrs., so I've had the chance to sample many dentists. West Hartford Family Dentistry is an extremely well run (both dental care and logistics). I highly recommend. Dr. Patel, in particular, is my dentist, Elizabet my hygienist and they're both excellent. That said hubby & both kids, in their 20's, are very pleased w/ their hygenists (not Elizabet). Re Dr. Patel, they feel positively, but don't have some of the dental issues I do, so my confidence in her is based on more experience.

Vu N., West Hartford

Flexible, quick, great care service! Thank you!

Aelix C, New Britain Ct

Lauren Higgins, Avon, CT

COVID-19 made me extremely nervous to continue my routine doctors visits but West Hartford Dentistry made me feel very safe and comfortable. The doctors and hygienists are masked up and wear face shields, and every room is sanitized top to bottom between patients. My squad of lady doctors provided excellent guidance and fixed my crack filling that had been hurting me for a month. I’d highly recommend Dr. Patel and her all-star staff.
