Dr. Parikh’s lifelong love for helping others enjoy healthy lives originally led him to study cardiology. But with a change of heart in his career path, it wasn’t long after he shadowed his local dentist that he realized a natural passion for crafting smiles and changing lives in a way that felt most meaningful to him. For Dr. Parikh, his first experience holding a dental drill could best be likened to Harry Potter holding his wand for the first time and discovering he was a wizard.
As a native of Wesley Chapel, he couldn’t be happier to serve his hometown with dental excellence and down-to-earth care. There’s nothing more rewarding to Dr. Parikh than being a reassuring and lighthearted presence for his community. He can completely relate to the fears and challenges that many of his patients face when it comes to the dentist because he was in their shoes once, too. From kiddos to grandparents, he seeks to develop a sincere sense of safety and trust by bringing smiles and laughter to his patients and team.
Dr. Parikh attended the University of South Florida where he achieved his bachelor’s degree in biomedical science, and went on to earn his master’s degree in biomedical science from Barry University. He then graduated as a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry at Roseman University’s College of Dental Medicine. Endlessly dedicated to providing the highest level of care for his community, he’s an active member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Clear Aligners, Academy of General Dentistry, and a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
In his off-time, Dr. Parikh fills his day by soaking up life to the full in the Sunshine State and beyond. You can catch him cycling along Florida’s vibrant and adventurous trails on his new bike, practicing yoga, honing his woodworking skills, cheering on the Miami Heat, training for his pilot’s license, and booking trips to destinations near and far. He’s an avid traveler and has visited 24 countries and counting (his favorite’s are Australia and Peru!).

At BayBreeze Dental, building a stronger, healthier community is essential to who we are because Wesley Chapel is our home. Our heart for uplifting others extends far beyond the walls of our office and is carried onward to our beloved city as a whole. We do this by sharing our time and resources with organizations that align with our values in health, education, and compassion. We’re grateful to lend our financial support to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), an organization that’s transforming the lives of people living with neuromuscular diseases through research, care, and advocacy. Dr. Parikh also serves as a volunteer dentist at our local community health clinic, restoring smiles and providing quality dental care for underserved families in Wesley Chapel.
Dr. Parikh and the BayBreeze Dental team have partnered with Mission Smiles, a local non-profit that offers new smiles to victims of domestic abuse and human trafficking, those rebuilding their lives after drug addiction, and anyone who cannot afford dental care. The Mission Smiles goal is to offer disadvantaged members of our community the opportunities, information, and support they need to develop their potential for a brilliant new, healthy smile. As part of our partnership, Dr. Parikh will give a portion of the proceeds for every new patient visit back to Mission Smiles. Together, we can help those in our communities find their smile.
