Mobile Loaves and Fishes


This past weekend, Dr. Patel volunteered through the Mobile Loaves and Fishes ministry where he provided toothbrushes, toothpaste, and mouthwash to those less fortunate in the Austin community.
Dr. Patel volunteers through the Bee Cave Rotary Club in conjunction with the Lake Hills Church. He has been a volunteer  with Mobile Loaves and Fishes for the past 2 years and actively participates with them every couple of months. Dr. Patel plans on continuing his involvement with the organization and hopes to provide more toothbrushes, toothpaste, and mouthwash to those in need.






Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc. (MLF) is a social outreach ministry for the homeless that was founded in 1998. The goal of the ministry is to distribute food and basic needs to the homeless in various communities. There are 2 teams in the organization-those who make the truck ready for deliveries and those you go out and hand out the food, clothing, and other items to the community. For more information and to learn how you can help, visit www.mlf.org

Healthy Holiday Eating


During the holidays, your healthy eating habits may fly out the window with all the delicious snacks, desserts, and holiday meals in front of you.  It is very tempting to overindulge during this season.  So how can you stay on track this season without missing out on the great food? Whether you’re hosting a holiday party, going to several parties, or visiting your favorite restaurant this season, listen up because we found some great holiday food swaps to help you out!

(For more holiday tips and swaps, visit 
www.shape.com)

·       Skip the dinner rolls! Grab the veggies and dip instead! Veggies will help you feel fuller faster as rolls usually lead to over eating and more consumption of refined carbs.

·
         Skip the white potatoes! Go for some sweet potatoes instead! White potatoes can’t match the nutrition found in sweet potatoes!

·
         Skip the egg nog! Pick up some sugar-free hot chocolate instead! Sugary beverages can pack tons of calories and fat, so choose wisely!

·
         Skip the holiday ham! Pick turkey instead! Turkey provides a lean protein, as ham can                                be loaded with sodium!

Brush by Brush


As a strong philanthropist and supporter of various charity organizations, Dr. Tejas Patel has developed a giving back concept entitled Brush by Brush. The idea behind Brush by Brush is to provide at least 500 toothbrushes and dental hygiene products to those in need each year.  Dr. Patel has committed to ensuring this happens. Beneficiaries of this program include local and international non-profit organizations such as local schools and Rotary clubs, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and international organizations during his volunteer travel trips.



By creating Brush by Brush, Dr. Patel’s main goal is to help those in need by providing them with tools to develop and maintain their oral health. Also, he hopes to inspire other dental offices and professionals to donate to those in needs through other organizations of which they are involved. As the holiday season comes and goes, remember those in need and think of ways you can help. If you would like more information about Brush by Brush, please do not hesitate to contact one of our offices.
