“My mission in dentistry is to provide my patients with the care and education to enjoy lifelong oral health. I enjoy providing the best quality of care I can and building relationships based on honesty, empathy, and compassion. I love serving my community by treating my patients with the most up-to-date techniques and technology in dental medicine. I also love to make others laugh and ensure that everyone has a pleasant time during their visit to our office.”

Meet the doctor

Mavi Cruz, DMD
Dr. Cruz was born in Havana, Cuba and at the age of 5, her family migrated to Miami, Florida. As a small child, she showed interest in dentistry. Today, when Dr. Cruz is not in the office, she volunteers at the local HANDS Clinic. She enjoys spending time with her husband, dog, family, and friends. She loves to go fishing and boating and continues her education through various courses and ongoing training.


While attending Florida International University, Dr. Cruz was a member of the Pre-Dental Society, the organization Alternative Breaks, the Center for Community Engagement, and Operation Smiles. Her passion for dentistry was reinforced in her undergraduate years where she volunteered at Community Smiles in Miami where dentistry is provided to the underserved. She traveled to Nicaragua on a mission trip to educate children in an orphanage on computer skills and maintaining oral health. Dr. Cruz graduated with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry which prepared her with the scientific basis for her dental profession. She pursued her dental career at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Sarasota, Florida. Dr. Cruz was proposed to be a simulation lab tutor by her professors to help dental students who struggled with dental procedures.

Keval A. Patel, DMD
“I was born and raised in South Florida. As a child, I spent the summer months in England with my family who are providers in healthcare. During this time, I gained an enthusiasm for being able to render a much-needed service to others and play a very important role in their life. I have volunteered at the Mission of Mercy in Gainesville, Florida, and “Give Kids a Smile” in Bradenton, Florida. and I’m currently honored to be able to serve the local community by volunteering my time at the Hands clinic in Ft. Pierce, Florida. In my spare time, I like reading, cooking, gardening, watching and participating in several sports, and spending time with my family as much as I can.”
