Jay R. Patel, DDS
My name is Dr Jayesh Patel. I was born in Morogoro, Tanzania. I spent my pre-teen and early teen years in Ndola, Zambia, and then spent my high school years in London, England. I came to the United States in 1979, and finished my undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Physiology at Southern Illinois in 1981 and 1982.
I completed my Doctorate degree in Dental Surgery from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois in 1986. I completed my residency in Orthodontics at Indiana University in 1988.
I entered private practice in September 1988 as an associate for three established Chicago area Orthodontists. In 1991 I established my own private practice in Bloomingdale, Illinois which expanded to Bartlett, Illinois in the year 2000. In the year 2006, I merged the Bloomingdale office with the Bartlett office, and opened a second location in Saint Charles, Illinois.
I belong to a number of organizations: Chicago Dental Society, American Dental Association, Midwestner Society of Orthodontics, and America Association of Orthodontics. Throughout the year I attend continuing education courses in orthodontics to keep abreast of the latest developments.
Married since 1987, when I’m not practicing I enjoy traveling, sports, and spending time with my three children Jason, Sarina, and Justin.
