Darragh Bailey graduated from the University of Tennessee Dental School in 1989. She has practiced in Charlottesville, Virginia and Winston Salem, North Carolina before moving to Charlotte with her family. She is dedicated to her patients and has a passion to deliver excellence in dentistry and believes it is a great honor to practice in Charlotte. Her call to dentistry came early when as a child she required extensive dental work. She felt comfortable with her dentist and she knew from age five what she wanted to be when she grew up. After graduating from dental school, she visited her childhood dentist to tell him that he was the reason she chose to go into the profession. "It was a great feeling for both of us."
Darragh spends her time outside the office with her husband, Russ Bailey and their two college age children, David and Erin. She is active in her church and loves spending time exercising with their three dogs.

She has experience in cosmetic dentistry, implant restorations, root canal therapy, crown and bridge, dental veneers, and teeth whitening. She is certified in Invisalign (clear braces). Dr. Patel is dedicated to providing optimal dental care for her patients. She listens to patient’s concerns and works well with fearful patients.
