Meet Dr. Patty

Dr. April Patterson, known as Dr. Patty, is a highly trained and experienced South Florida cosmetic and restorative dentist.


Imagine if the sights, sounds and smells of your dental office resembled those of a world class spa.

That was the idea behind Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa, South Florida’s first dental spa.

Dr. April Patterson, more affectionately known as Dr. Patty, a Florida native, is on a mission to change the negative stereotypes associated with the dental chair.  In 2012, she created the ultimate pampering experience based on the principles of “relaxation” dentistry.  The result is the chic, client-focused, comfort-conscious Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique nestled in East Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Patty, a highly trained and world-class expert cosmetic dentist, obtained her undergrad degree at Florida State University, with a B.S. in Biology. She went on to attend and complete Dental School at the University of Michigan to obtain a DDS. In addition, she completed her Residency at the University of Michigan. Dr. Patty has also trained extensively with some of the most respected cosmetic dental specialists in the industry at well-recognized institutions.

Dr. Patty has successfully carved a niche in the cosmetic dental industry with an all-encompassing approach to dentistry and aesthetics which couples veneers, cosmetic braces, IV Sedation and smile makeovers with rejuvenating facial fillers such as Juvaderm and Radiesse, along with neurotoxins such as Botox and dysport. Her boutique also boasts a full-service spa with massages and facials along with a lash and brow bar.

She is dedicated to state-of-the-art dental technologies and prides herself on being at the forefront of the latest technology and research to provide clients with the best, one-on-one dental care. A national publication, iPhone Life magazine profiled Dr. Patty for her innovative use of Apple technology in her state-of-the-art dental office. Her latest addition to her boutique is the CERAC Omnicam, the latest CAD/CAM system which allows her to take 3D impressions and mill patients’ individual all-ceramic restorations in one single appointment.

The producers at ABC’s “Good Morning America” were so intrigued by Dr. Patty’s “dental spa” concept; they flew reporter Bianna Golodryga and a cameraman down to Florida to caption all the action for a national TV segment.  Local press has been just as fascinated and Dr. Patty has appeared on numerous TV segments with Fox, CBS, CW and ABC.  In addition, Dr. Patty’s Dental Spa has been featured in numerous local newspapers and magazines and Gold Coast magazine profiled her as one of their “40 Under 40”celebrating leadership and excellence among Broward County’s young professionals.

Dr. Patty routinely donates time, money and resources to a variety of local non-profit organizations including Women in Distress of Broward County, Humane Society of Broward County and the Museum of Discovery and Science.

In 2013, Dr. Patty was recognized by the March of Dimes as one of 10 Women of Distinction and presented with a very special award at a private luncheon. In addition, she raised almost $5,200 in donations for the charity event. The recipients of this prestigious award were chosen based on their outstanding achievements both professionally and through their philanthropic endeavors.

In 2013, Dr. Patty was nominated as of one of the 100 Most Outstanding Women of Broward County presented by the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County.    Each year, the 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County event showcases and celebrates the accomplishments of women who have impacted Broward’s business, community and philanthropic fields.

In 2014 Dr. Patty set out to share her incredible wealth of talent, knowledge, and skills with other practitioners through the launch of a second company, Elite Facial Aesthetics Training Company. Elite is a professional school that features workshops across the country and Canada that teaches doctors, dentists and nurses how to inject facial fillers, Botox and other aesthetic services on live models and also how to grow their practice through the added revenue stream of these products. Dr. Patty consults dentists and physicians, one on one, on opening a boutique practice from scratch, from A-Z, and on how to upgrade a current practice to become a boutique practice.

Dr. Patty enjoys serving as a passionate role model for other young, female entrepreneurs.  She is often called upon to provide advice and guidance to other dentists and dental students who see her as revolutionizing the dental industry with her popular and profitable dental spa concept.
