Meet Our Team
Sangiv I Patel DDS, PA – Melbourne FL
I was born in Miami, Florida but raised here in Melbourne. I attended Melbourne High School and Eastern Florida State College (formally known as Brevard Community College). I earned my Dental Assistant and Dental Radiology Certification with Expanded Functions from EFSC. I have always been fascinated with teeth and interested with the science behind the beauty of them. I have worked with Dr. Patel for a total of five years. Working with Dr. Patel has given me the opportunity to understand dentistry on an entirely different level. The technology we offer at our office promotes early detection with dental problems and assists with patient education. I enjoy helping the patient feel comfortable while in our office by explaining treatment, listening to their concerns and tending to their needs. Out of the office I spend time with my husband and daughter. We enjoy going to the movies and Disney parks, outside activities like running and bike riding.
I was born and raised in Miami Florida and moved up to the Melbourne area to be closer to my family. At the start of my dental career I worked as a dental assistant for 10 years and then received my formal training as a dental hygienist at Miami Dade College. I have been working at Dr. Patel’s practice for 7 years now. As a child I had just about every dental problem you can imagine and because of this I am very sympathetic to any patient that comes thru our door. As a healthcare provider our patient’s health and well-being comes first and foremost. I want every one of my patients to feel at ease and confident with the high quality of care provided in our office.
As a mother of two most of my time is dedicated to them, however I am an avid Pintrest addict and love remodeling my home and crafting with the kids!
Hello! My name is Caroline McAlister! I am one of Dr. Patels’ Dental Assistants. I graduated from Eastern Florida State College with my AA degree in December of 2013, and my Dental Assisting Certificate in December of 2014. I am a mother of one and married to my loving husband who currently serves in the Army. For fun I like to go to the beach, watch TV, and spend time with my family. One of my favorite things about working for Dr. Patel is how technologically advanced his office is from in office crowns to the amazing data we are able to collect for patients who have TMJ issues. I feel that I will never stop learning!
