Dr. Patty

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 is a highly trained and experienced South Florida cosmetic and restorative dentist.
