Avi Patel

Dr. Avi is a general dentist, content creator, educator and entrepreneur. 

He grew up in Jacksonville, FL and attended the University of Central Florida where he majored in Biology before attending NYU College of Dentistry. He then practiced in the northeast for 2 years before moving to Austin, TX where he currently practices. 

Early in his career, Dr. Avi was burning out on general dentistry before learning about Clear Aligners. When he first began implementing aligners into his practice – he noticed a major shift not only in his practice and for his patients, but in his life as well. He found that he had more time, income and a greater sense of fulfillment through this treatment option. Having experienced this – he wanted to share this with colleagues all around the world.  

Since then, Dr. Avi has become a thought leader in the Clear Aligner space. He is the CEO and Founder of Clear Aligner Advisor – a Clear Aligner consulting company. He regularly posts Clear Aligner tips on his instagram page @doctor.avi and on his YouTube channel. 

Dr. Avi has also created an online training program called Clear Aligner Blueprint, a foundational Clear Aligner training program for general dentists who are looking to get started with Clear Aligners in their practice. 

Dr. Avi is authentically passionate about empowering dentists to reach their maximum potential in life. His goal is to make Clear Aligner education accessible to general dentists all over the world and be a positive light for struggling dentists who may feel alone and burnt out.
