Akshi Gandhi, DDS

Dr. Akshi Gandhi, Dekalb dentist, was born in London, England and raised in Carol Stream, IL.  In high school, she had an avid interest in science and spent her summers shadowing at a local dentist office.  It was here that she realized her passion for dentistry and treating patients.  She applied for and was accepted to the GPPA Dental Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  After completing her dental degree in 2014, she spent the next year completing her General Practice Residency at the Jesse Brown VA in Chicago, IL.  Here, she treated United States Veterans and learned how to balance their medical ailments with their dental needs in order to provide them with their ideal care. She spent the next several years at an office in Dixon, IL, and most recently provided temporary help to offices throughout Illinois and Wisconsin in order to learn new technologies.

She strongly believes that the more her patients know about their dental health, the more they can do to control it.  She strives to ensure that they not only understand what treatment they need, but also why they need it as well as how to prevent further disease.  It is her goal to make her patients as comfortable and happy with their care as possible.

Dr. Gandhi is a member of the American Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.  She is committed to furthering her dental knowledge by frequently attending continuing education courses.

In her spare time, Dr. Gandhi enjoys reading, doing yoga, and going for bicycle rides.  She also enjoys spending time with her husband and having him taste test her new recipes!

Megh Patel, DMD, DDS

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for my undergraduate education. I received my dental degree from University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry where I received the Frances Best Watkins Award for leadership and academic achievement. Following dental school, I decided to further my education by pursuing a one year General Practice Residency at the Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago. Here I gained tremendous insight in treating patients with special needs and various medical conditions. I strive to exhibit compassion, integrity, and excellence when practicing dentistry. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, exercising, and traveling.
