About Dr Max
Dr Max Patel was born in 1972 and raised in England, he graduated from Kings College, University of London in 1995. He gained further qualifications in the USA and then worked in general practice in England. He became the Principal Dental Surgeon of The Wigmore Dental Clinic, UK in 1999. He successfully ran this busy three dentist practice for 9 years, gaining vast experience in general dentistry.
Dr Max has advanced training in Intravenous Sedation, Cosmetic Dentistry, Implants, Bone grafting, Sinus lifts, Oral Surgery and Invisalign. All of these multi-skills, enable him to be able to look after and be solely responsible for his patients.
Being an endorsed IV sedation practitioner, Max has more than 20 years of experience and is particularly excited by the skilled provision of ‘smile makeovers.’
Since completing Dental implant training, he is now very focussed on trying to keep all patients denture free for life. He feels that dentures are suited in a limited number of cases. However, the detrimental effect on quality of life is grossly underestimated by many dentists and patients alike.
He also loves treating nervous/anxious patients and in his words:
“converting them into confident, anxiety-free patients, who almost look forward to visiting the dentist.”
Max is also proficient with the Invisalign system and has attained the prestigious Platinum Elite provider status.
Max is a boy at heart and loves his gadgets/technology. So, be prepared to be introduced to a range of new technological gizmos designed to make advanced dentistry fun for everyone.
Outside of dentistry he is sports mad! He plays golf (present handicap 10.6…. he claims this is work in progress). He is an avid Liverpool FC fan and watched them win the European Cup in 2005. “A great lesson in determination, for my team to win after being 3-0 down at half-time.”
More recently, Max is now caddying for his two daughters, who have gained a keen interest in golf too! He is a keen chess player and enjoys reading. Barbecuing is a more recent blossoming passion.
Max and his family migrated from London to Melbourne in 2008. He is quite a philosophical character and shares this with us.
“Love the job you do, and you never have to work again!”
He feels that he has achieved this with his dentistry and is enjoying providing excellent care here in Bayside. Max loves helping people using the skills and knowledge he has been fortunate to acquire. He will always, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
