meet the doctors

I’ve known Dr. Cua and Dr. Patel for many years and I can’t stop raving about them. They take their time to really listen and they truly care. And I have to say, they are just so much fun! :) I was so relieved to finally be comfortable at the dentist. I recommend them to all my family and friends.

East Coast Meets West Coast

Dr. Patel brings a deep devotion to family and a love for healthcare science from his roots in New England, while Dr. Cua exudes a west coast relationship-driven vibe mixed with a little Disney excellence from Los Angeles. East coast meets west coast in the heart of Austin, Texas to create an innovative and inviting patient experience. From snow to beaches, “wicked good” to “hella good”, the Celtics to the Lakers, both doctors bring a refreshing energy to serving the people of Austin.

Dr. Shivam Patel

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Patel’s for quite some time and I can honestly say it has been one of the best healthcare experiences thus far. The quality of care and the comfortable environment have made my dental experiences unlike any other. I truly feel valued and I believe that Dr. Patel absolutely puts my needs first.

Raised in a family of pharmacists, Dr. Shivam Patel developed a love for science and healthcare when he began to see the impact it can make in the lives of people. After completing his pre-med degree, he shadowed many healthcare professions, discovering dentistry to be the perfect fusion of healthcare and creativity. He went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Though far from New England, Dr. Patel loves Texas and looks forward to serving families throughout the Austin area.

While studying abroad in Chile, Dr. Cua discovered her calling to healthcare while working on her undergraduate Biology degree. Her time as a Disneyland cast member taught her the life-changing impact of creating a magical experience for those she serves. Whether treating underserved children in L.A. or moms in Austin, she loves the difference she can make as a dentist. Dr. Cua completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She has fallen in love with the people, food, and culture of the great state of Texas.
