Dr. Sanil Patel


Dr. Patel was born and raised in London, England. He moved to Atlanta with his family in 2000, later graduating from Ga. Tech. He then completed Dental School at University of Detroit-Mercy Dental School in Detroit, Michigan. To advance his skills and knowledge he went on further to complete a dental residency in New York. After years of studies in the north, he longed to return to his adopted Georgia roots. He is very happy to be back. He looks forward to meeting you and providing the highest quality dental care for you and your family.

Outside the office, Dr. Patel likes to travel, hike, and spend time with friends and family. Dr. Patel comes from humble background, and thus loves to contribute hours volunteering for different communities-in USA and other countries on mission trips. Let’s not forget that he is a foody, he loves to eat and tries all different cuisines. If you bring him food, it will make his day!

Dr. Patel also dedicates his time to attending continuing education courses on the latest and proven treatment methods and dental technology. His goal is to provide the best dental treatment for his patients!

Dental Assistant

Hi! I’m Irina. I was born in Moscow, Russia. My favorite food is smoked fish! When I’m not working I love to exercise, talking with friends, knitting, and learning something new every day! I am empathetic and I love intricate and detailed hand work. (My job is very detailed and intricate as well.) When I travel I enjoy going home to Moscow and seeing my friends, and the beautiful Tybee Island. I enjoy my job and see how the staff is focused on the best results for the patient. Dr. Patel leads by example with his dedication and engaging professional demeanor.



Dental Assistant

Hi my name is Mimi! I’m from Quincy, Massachusetts. We moved to Georgia in 2006 and I have been here ever since! I went to school at Kennesaw State University and did a outside dental assisting program to get my certificate. When I’m not working I enjoy going to the lake to fish and kayak! I also enjoy going out and eating at new restaurants, so if you have any recommendations please come find me. I’m so fortunate that I found my dental home with Pure Smiles Dentistry!




Hi, I’m Susan a hygienist at Pure Smiles dentistry in Marietta. I will get the facts out of the way first. I was born and raised in Michigan. I moved to South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia being my final destination thus far. I prefer the sunny south as opposed to the cold winters of Michigan. Some of the things most important to me are Faith, family, friends, and my curling iron. I never leave home without it when I travel LOL. I love flowers, gardening, interior decorating, and refurbishing old furniture. Back in the day I lived a double life (horrors!) I worked as a dental hygienist during the day and a Jazzercise instructor in the evenings. I don’t Jazzercise anymore, but I hit the gym regularly. Come and see us here at Pure Smile’s! Dr Patel is a superb dentist and a wonderful boss. He has put together a great team. You will be greeted by some fresh new faces, along with a couple of us that have stood the test of time. Yes, we are still standing. Until we meet, keep fit, keep flossing, and keep finding something to laugh about through your day. There is research that shows a good laugh helps boost our immune system. Most importantly keep the faith. Kind regards, Susan.




My name is Pam. I am a Clemson graduate with a degree in education. After 17 years I changed professions to dental hygiene and love my new career change. I have three children ranging in ages of 19-23. I love to working in the garden, reading books, exercising and playing tennis. I foster animals and have a few pets of my own. I feel good doing community service work and hope to do more relating to my degrees of education and dental hygiene.


A native of Smyrna Georgia , I received my degree from Georgia State University Perimeter College with an Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene.

As your dental hygienist, my focus is on providing high quality care to every patient and educating them on how to maintain good oral health. I am committed to making hygiene appointments a comfortable and positive experience.

I grew up an Army Brat. I have seen and lived all over the country, and moved back to Georgia to remain close to family. My husband is a local firefighter and we have three beautiful daughters.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, cooking (especially Cuban food!), reading, and using any excuse I can to go to the beach.

Hi my name is Melissa Ann Chewning, I am the first face you see when you enter Pure Smiles Dentistry and most likely the first voice you hear when you call our office. I’m the receptionist , scheduling coordinator, records department, and so much more. I have been working in the dental field as a receptionist long enough to know, I love it! I’m a firm believer you have to love your job to do a great job. I am devoted to Pure Smile Dentistry because I feel Dr. Patel is an amazing dentist and truly cares about all of his patients. I love the fact that he hand picks all of his staff members and they are just as caring and devoted to helping patients as Dr. Patel. He is always updating current educational information to his staff so that we all may give our patients the best care possible. Dr. Patel has truly sealed my devotion to staying in the dental field .

I graduated high school at Fayette Christian, which is located in Fayetteville, Georgia. I graduated with thirteen students in my class. Fayette Christian may have been a small school but a great learning experience. I have four beautiful children, two boys and two girls. Their ages range from 11 years old to 25 years old. I am a very proud mom so my hobbies do include devoting as much time as I can to being a good mom. I also have 2 cats, one 11 week old puppy, and a bird that bring a lot of joy and busy days. I also enjoy anything that includes staying healthy, whether it be on water or land. I’m always looking for great recipes whether it be to cook on the stove or on the grill, by land or by the water. I’m always up for new hobbies so if you have one to share, we’d love to have you as a patient of Pure Smiles Dentistry so we can hear all about your new found hobbies. I look forward to seeing you soon. Have a Blessed day.
