Dr. Dara Darabi was raised in Southern California. He felt that a healthcare profession would uniquely integrate his passion for science with his desire to work closely with people. He received a Bachelor of Science degree for physics and biochemistry, then attended the Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska, where he was the recipient of multiple scholarships and awards for his achievements in restorative dentistry.
After achieving his dental degree, Dr. Darabi moved to beautiful western Massachusetts, where he worked in a community clinic before opening his own practices, first in Springfield and now in Turners Falls.
Dr. Darabi is a member in good standing with the Academy of General Dentistry and has been recognized as fellow since 2013. He attends numerous continuing education classes and seminars each year to ensure his patients benefit from the latest advancements and techniques in dentistry. Dr. Darabi has also received advanced training in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) therapy and oral surgery. He is an official Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Sarita Patel is a friendly and remarkably skilled clinician with true passion for family dentistry. She aims to provide patients with healthy, beautiful smiles. With her cheerful outlook and a positive attitude, she provides excellent dental care in a relaxed and comfortable manner.
Dr. Patel is a native of Mystic, Connecticut. She joined Apex Dental Associates after attending one of the most prestigious dental schools in the world – The New York University College of Dentistry – where she completed extensive training for her dental career.
Learning that Dr. Darabi was expanding his services and appointment opportunities, she jumped at the chance to join our growing western Massachusetts family practices.
