Pranali Patel, DDS, MSD


“As an Orthodontist, I feel incredibly grateful to be in a wonderful profession that has a power of creating a difference in so many lives by transforming their smiles. I am very passionate for creating beautiful smiles and in the process, I get to meet so many amazing individuals and to build long-lasting relationships.

While growing up, I was always fascinated and drawn to the field of Orthodontics due to its ability to boost self- esteem through smile transformation. Its so rewarding to see my patients smiling with so much confidence which is then carried forward into other aspects of their life. A healthy and beautiful smile thus becomes a key to unlock success!

As a mom, I understand the concerns of a busy parent. I am committed to treating each of my patients with the same professionalism, compassion and integrity that I would provide to a family member. My team and I will go above and beyond to make sure that your smile transformation journey is pleasant and exceptional!

A smile has great importance and leaves a lasting impression. I treasure the opportunity to serve the community and I look forward to welcoming you at Gemstone Orthodontics.”
