Improving oral health outcomes among disadvantaged communities

Dr Jilen Patel is a specialist paediatric dentist, senior lecturer in clinical dentistry at the UWA Dental School and a consultant at Perth Children’s Hospital. Dr Patel is passionate about translational research and completed his specialist training at UWA and Princess Margaret Hospital for Children.

His journey began as an intern, volunteering in a team that provided dental services to remote communities across the Kimberley region. Since then, Dr Patel has continued to play an active role in developing oral health policy and practice for underserved communities.
