After receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), Dr. Sigurdson moved to Dallas where he completed his residency for Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the Baylor College of Dentistry.

He is also a member of many respected organizations, including the American Dental Association, Dallas County Dental Society, Texas Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry.

Mihir Patel, DDS

Born in London, England, Dr. Mihir Patel moved to Garland, TX with his family at the age of one. As a child, Dr. Patel had a bike accident that resulted in a chipped front tooth. A dentist was able to seamlessly repair his tooth, which sparked his interest in the art and science of dentistry.

Dr. Patel pursued a biology degree from Texas A&M where he graduated magna cum laude in 2011. He then went on to earn his D.D.S. in Dallas, TX, from Texas A&M College of Dentistry. He earned a spot on the Dean’s Cumulative Honor List and graduated in 2015. He then continued his education at Baylor College of Dentistry, earning an Advanced Education in General Dentistry certificate in 2016.

As a Lakewood dentist, Dr. Patel believes that dental care should be comprehensive, conservative, and evidence-based. He also believes that excellent dental care should be accessible to patients from all backgrounds. This belief is what drives Dr. Patel to pursue frequent volunteer opportunities to serve the Dallas community. 

In addition to volunteering his time and talent, Dr. Patel pursues continuing education courses to refine his abilities in endodontics, aesthetic dentistry, and implant surgery. He is also a member of several organizations, including the American Dental Association, Dallas County Dental Society, Texas Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and Dallas Study Club.
