Hasmi R. Patel, DMD

Born and raised in Hendersonville, NC, Hasmi R. Patel, DMD is happy to be home in North Carolina and serving the Indian Trail community with complete, compassionate dental care. Her lifelong interest in dentistry began when she was a child when her father encouraged her to explore a profession that allowed her to balance work and family life, help others achieve better health, and incorporate her artistic abilities. Dr. Patel’s end goal was to become a respected doctor. She discovered that dentistry was her passion and the best possible professional path for her future.

Dr. Patel attended Temple University in Philadelphia, PA for her undergraduate degree, where she majored in biology. She continued her studies at the School of Dentistry at Temple University where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine.

After studying, living, and working in Philadelphia for eight years, Dr. Patel moved back to North Carolina. She is now a local dentist and the proud owner of Indian Trail Dental Studio, where she stays true to her mission in dentistry: to treat her patients with the same level of service and quality of care that she’d want for her own family and friends. Dr. Patel regularly attends continuing education courses so she can expand and enhance the services she provides her patients.

When Dr. Patel is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her son, husband, family, and friends. She and her husband love exploring and traveling, and they always appreciate receiving destination recommendations from friends, family, and patients alike. She also enjoys watching movies and basketball (go Bulls!), staying active by trying new workout programs, and running outdoors. She looks forward to working as a local dentist and meeting new patients in her office each day.

Davonnia N.

Davonnia N.

Born and raised in the Caribbean, Davonnia learned from a very young age the importance of Dental Care. As she often recalls, “My grandmother was adamant about brushing and flossing our teeth day in and day out. Her parents never prioritized oral health and after losing a great deal of her own teeth, she made it her mission to ensure that never happened to us”. That routine manifested itself into being the path that Davonnia took for her career. She is currently completing all her prerequisites to become a Dental Hygienist.

As a new transplant to North Carolina from New York, Davonnia is enjoying the warmer weather with her family that includes her mom, two sisters, and 3 cats.

Randie was born and raised in Lake Lure, NC. He moved across the country and got his diploma in Dental Assisting from Western Dakota Tech in Rapid City, SD. He spent eight years in South Dakota before deciding the cold wasn’t for him and he missed the warmth of the Carolinas.

Randie worked in a Pediatric Dental Office for a year and a half in Hilton Head, SC. He also worked for a while in an Endodontics office!
When it comes to his work ethic, Randie goes above and beyond for every patient. He loves to quote Mary Kay and say, “Pretend that every person you meet has a sign around his or her neck that says ‘Make me feel important.’” We know you will find Randie takes this to heart!

When he’s not at work, you can find Randie at the nearest watering hole. Whether it’s a lake, beach, or pool – You can find him in the sun with a drink in his hand!
