Get To Know Dr. Rajul Patel

Dr. Patel first opened the doors to our Chicago dental office in 2010, and well over a decade later, she still finds plenty of fulfillment in enhancing smiles and helping patients rediscover their self-confidence! If you’re ready to start working towards better, brighter teeth, don’t hesitate to give her a call here in Bloomingdale. You can also learn more about her by continuing to read below.

While in college, Dr. Patel had a physics lab partner who introduced her to her sister. The sister worked as a dentist and was currently searching for an assistant. At that time, Dr. Patel wasn’t sure if she wanted to pursue the medical field or dentistry in particular – but she started working for her and was quickly inspired! Whether through alleviating dental pain or completely transforming a smile, the dentist was able to change people’s lives for the better every single day, and she wanted to provide that same level of immediate gratification. The rest, they say, is history.

After graduating from Loyola University in Chicago, Dr. Patel pursued her dental doctorate at New York University College of Dentistry. Continuing education has been very important to her over the years; she’s completed numerous workshops with Spear Education, along with training in CEREC, BOTOX, oral conscious sedation, Invisalign, and more. Currently, she is a member of the American Dental Association and the Illinois State Dental Society.

At home, Dr. Patel and her husband have a young daughter and son, as well as their 10-year-old Boxer. When she isn’t busy caring for patients, you can typically find her taking the kids to museums or spending a family day at the beach. She also loves listening to almost any kind of music live!


Get To Know Dr. Prem Patel

Dr. Prem is able to provide a wide range of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures in Chicago, including facial trauma repair and reconstruction, dental implant surgery, bone grafting, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, TMJ surgery, and corrective jaw and cosmetic surgery. He deeply enjoys getting to know his patients and working alongside an excellent team that enables him to deliver optimal care every single day. To learn a little more about Dr. Prem, read below.

Dr. Prem was drawn to oral surgery because he liked the precision of dentistry, the science of medicine, and the art of surgery. He knew that becoming an oral surgeon would allow him to blend all these passions and pursue a career where he could make meaningful, long-lasting improvements for his patients, both for their health and appearance.

Dr. Prem received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he graduated with high honors. He then attended the University of Pennsylvania and obtained his Dental of Medicine Doctorate degree (DMD). During this time, he was awarded several surgical and scholastic distinctions. He was later accepted into the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania’s Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery residency program. Once admitted, he attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, eventually earning his MD degree. Dr. Prem went on to receive his two-year General Surgery Certificate while completing rotations at the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Today, he is board-certified in both oral and maxillofacial surgery as well as cosmetic surgery.

Most of Dr. Prem’s free time is dedicated to his wife, Sonia, and their young son and daughter, Zayn and Zavia.

Get To Know Dr. Amer Shammaa

Nothing makes Dr. Shammaa happier than seeing his patients’ faces after he takes off their braces and they get to look at their new smiles for the first time. For him, the best part of his job is knowing that he is making positive and lasting changes in people’s lives. He looks forward to doing the same for you or your child, and to learn a little more about him, read on below.

Most of Dr. Shammaa’s family members are dentists, and it was his older brother, an orthodontist, that encouraged him to take the same path. His brother is 18 years older than him, and growing up, Dr. Shammaa always admired how he was able to help people, and he fondly remembers that all of his patients loved him.

Dr. Shammaa completed his initial dental education at the University of Minnesota, and he went on to earn a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from West Virginia University. To stay on top of the latest advancements in dentistry, he is currently a member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, and the American Academy of Orthodontists.

Dr. Shammaa and his wife, Aylah, have one boy, Zayd. When he isn’t spending time with family, he enjoys reading, watching soccer, and playing tennis.
