Meet the Doctor

Dr. Anand Patel

Dr. Anand Patel has been practicing as a Claremore and Tulsa, OK orthodontist for nearly two decades. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in Texas.

He then completed his orthodontic residency and obtained a Master of Science degree in orthodontics from the University of Oklahoma. He loved the area and after practicing for two years in Dallas, decided to return and open the Brace Place where he offers patients the most advanced, comprehensive care available. He truly believes in the transformative power of orthodontics and engages in continuing education in order to keep his clinical skills fresh and stay on the leading edge of the field. When he’s not perfecting smiles, Dr. Patel can usually be found spending time with his wife, Swati, and their two boys, Aiden and Asher.
