Born in Kansas City, Dr. Monali Patel (Mona) was raised in Houston, Texas in a large family. Mona is the oldest of three siblings and a host of cousins; being the eldest, Mona fostered a natural love for children at a young age.
As a student, Dr. Patel worked at a Pediatric Dental office in Houston, Texas greeting children and escorting them to the doctor. Through this work experience, Mona realized at a young age her calling… to be a pediatric dentist.
In 1996 Mona attended Baylor College of Dentistry a Texas A&M Health Science Center. After graduating from dental school Mona was accepted into the prestigious Pediatric Residency Program at Baylor College of Dentistry where she developed the knowledge and tools needed to start a long-anticipated career in Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Patel accepted a job with Dr. Jon Ousley at Just For Kids. Dr. Ousley became a close friend and mentor to Mona. After working alongside each other, Dr. Ousley knew he found the right person to pass the torch on to and further grow the Just for Kids practice.
