Dr. Ameet Trivedi, DDS
WHY DID I BECOME A DENTIST?
Despite, what everyone thinks, I didn’t dream of fixing teeth as a kid. Actually, I wanted to be an airline pilot. Though, as I got older, I found the medical sciences more interesting. After getting my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, I worked for 6 years, in a busy Chicago emergency room. Although this was a rewarding career choice, I found my true calling was yet to come.
Dentistry is the only field in which I could combine my altruistic nature with my artistic and mechanical skills. Using amazing technology, I help my patients achieve and maintain beautiful smiles. I get a true sense of pride knowing my work helps you eat, express your happiness, and live a healthy life.
I consider myself lucky. Very few people get to love their jobs, and even less get to have a job they are passionate about. My passion comes through in the quality of my work, and the close relationships I foster with my patients.
WHY CHOOSE HONEST FAMILY DENTAL?
- Honesty is the best policy. Early in my career, I found patients to be, generally, distrustful of dentists. The reason? Most dentists don’t listen too or take the time to educate their patients. Education, honesty, and compassion are what guides my practice.
- My office was built, from scratch, by me. I am the sole owner and clinician of my practice. If you are looking for the “anti-corporate” dental office. You came to the right place.
WHAT DO I DO IN MY OFF TIME?
You can catch me running, biking, or kayaking on Lady Bird Lake. I love cooking/eating all types of food and traveling (32 countries visited so far!). Also, I make it a point to meet a local dentist in whatever country I’m in. It’s amazing what pearls of wisdom you can learn from other people and cultures.
A quote I live by is: “Life isn’t a problem to be solved, it’s a mystery to be lived.”
