Smile! You’re in Great Hands!
At Panama City Smiles our slogan is to live life smiling and we believe in that not only from the patient perspective but also we live life smiling. We show up to work with a smile and we smile all day and we go home smiling as well because we love what we do and we love to be able to provide that same feeling for the patient, patients who haven’t smiled perhaps for years because of the way it looks or feels and then for us to be able to create a smile for them where they can live life smiling and then affect the people around them as well to improve their lives is just what we love to do. That’s our passion. We realize that we are a dental office and people are very apprehensive and they don’t like coming here so what we are trying to do is create an experience where it just takes the apprehension and everything out of the situation so when patients come in, we give them a tour of the office so they are familiar with everything, we like to introduce everyone by name, use their name and when they get in the chair, we have a comfort menu so they can pick items off of there, whether it’s a blanket, pillow, headphones or anything that’s going to make their visit more comfortable and that allows us to have a better relationship with them and then they can actually go through and get their dentistry done and really achieve the smile that they want to achieve. The patient comes first really and when we evaluate any new procedure or product or anything that we are going to use, we always look as to whether it is going to benefit the patient or is it not going to benefit the patient. So that’s how we evaluate all the decisions that we make. One of the decisions is building a new office, it is very labor intensive, obviously money involved but it is going to be better for the patient, it’s going to provide them more rooms to be able to be seen faster, we can put more technology and equipment in that we need to provide the best dentistry to them and make it comfortable. I have a passion for cosmetic dentistry because it seems to be the most life changing thing that we can do. We can take just about any smile and make it as good as or even better than it was to begin with which is really life changing for people. It gives them confidence to not only just smile but to talk with more confidence. A lot of people come in and they kind of hide their mouth when they talk and shy away. When we’re done they have that beautiful smile and they have so much more confidence, like a whole new person, and that’s really what my passion is is to be able to provide that.
When you come to Panama City Smiles, you will discover what excellence in customer service and compassionate patient care are all about. We bring the best of ourselves, our expertise, our care, and precision dentistry to each of our patients.
Though some practices say they have a “team,” they are merely referring to a group of staff. When we say we have a “team” of professionals, we are talking about a true team that works seamlessly together, like a well-oiled machine, for the purpose of making your dental experience an outstanding one. We invest time and training individually and as a group to continually sharpen our professional and people skills. Dr. Anish Patel and the rest of our staff have regular strategy sessions to review how we are doing and to brainstorm about how we can be improving patient care and your experience at our practice.

A Full Spectrum of Dental Care
We realize that we are a dental office and people are very apprehensive and they don’t like coming here so what we are trying to do is create an experience where it takes that apprehension and everything out of the situation. So when the patients come in, we give them a tour of the office so they are familiar with everything. We like to introduce everyone by name and use their name and then when they get in the chair, we have a comfort menu so that they can pick items off of there, whether it’s a blanket or a pillow or headphones or anything that is going to make their visit more comfortable. That allows us to have a better relationship with them and then they can actually go through and get their dentistry done and really achieve the smile that they want to achieve. We just find that, even when we go to a medical office, we would like to feel more comfortable so anything we can do, we just continually add stuff in to make the experience better.
- Preventive Care – We provide routine dental cleanings and exams for the whole family to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. This also gives us the opportunity to educate our patients about good oral hygiene habits and check for any developing dental problems that need attention. Early detection and treatment are key to keeping a healthy mouth.
- General Dentistry – Sometimes cavities happen. We are happy to offer basic dental services, root canals, and crowns. We do all we can to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
- Restorative Dentistry – If you need to restore, protect, or replace failing or missing teeth, we have many options. We are experts in implant dentistry – the most permanent solution for tooth replacement. We place and restore dental implants in one location. When our implants are topped with beautiful crowns, no one will be able to tell you have had dental work!
- Cosmetic Dentistry – We all want to look our best. Offering cosmetic options including whitening, veneers, crowns, orthodontics, and gum treatments, we can offer you a brand new smile! Even if you need extensive work to get your teeth looking great, we can do a complete smile rehabilitation, choosing the services you need to restore your smile and your confidence!
Patient centric just means that the patient comes first. When we evaluate any new procedure, product or anything we are going to use, we always look at whether it is going to benefit the patient or is it not going to benefit the patient. So that’s how we evaluate all the decisions that we make. If one of the decisions is building a new office, it is very labor intensive and obviously money involved but it’s going to be better for the patient, it’s going to provide them with more rooms to be able to be seen faster and we can put more technology and more equipment that we need to provide the best dentistry to them and to make it comfortable.
