General Dentist

Pooja Patel, DDS



Dr. Pooja Patel was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and completed her Bachelor’s degree at Saint Louis University. From there she went on to the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry, and graduated with her D.D.S. in 2016. Dr. Patel has since lived in California and Massachusetts, but is very excited to finally be settling down in Birmingham with her family, as her husband recently took a job as a staff laryngeal surgeon with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Dr. Patel‘s love for dentistry originated at a young age and she decided dentistry was for her after she shadowed her own general dentist in high school. She thoroughly enjoys practicing dentistry, and especially loves to develop meaningful relationships with her patients. You will always find Dr. Patel with a smile on her face, and her patients describe her as empathetic, caring, and patient.

Dr. Patel is thrilled to be joining the Luma family! She is looking forward to thriving in an environment that is patient-focused while collaborating with a wonderful team of colleagues who care deeply about helping fellow staff and patients.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, their twin daughters, and Goldendoodle. She also loves to cook, travel abroad, and try new restaurants. Dr. Patel looks forward to meeting you!
