“I wish there were more stars to give. Dr. Patel was really professional and informative. She empowered me with knowledge on next steps and always checked in with me during my cleaning. I really enjoyed meeting Dr. Patel and her team. I typically am so afraid of dentists, the sound of those tools just freaks me out but I felt at ease and really had a great time getting to know Dr. Patel. The cherry on top for me was the handwritten note with a very nice gift that I received at the end of my visit.”
Dr. Lajja Patel received her dental degree from Temple University with Honors (Magna Cum Laude). Following this, she embarked on a yearlong intensive General Practice Residency at Morristown Hospital in Morristown, NJ. Dr. Patel also received her masters in Biomedical Science at Rutgers Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences with a concentration in Pharmacology.
Dr. Patel continues to learn new techniques and has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education courses on esthetics, implants, and other up-and-coming procedures. She is Invisalign® certified and is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. She holds an Implant Fellowship from International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and after 7 years of clinical experience serving the greater North Jersey community, received the NJ Top Doctor award in 2020.
For Dr. Patel, her family brings her the most joy. She, her husband, and their two children, Arya and Aarav, love experiencing all that Cranford has to offer, and supporting the local businesses in the community in the process. She also has a deep passion for overall health and wellness, including a disciplined practice of yoga and mindfulness at Home Power Yoga, and is always thrilled to discuss all things self-discovery, wellness, and personal growth with friends and patients.
