Dr. Patel Visits the Dominican Republic

At the beginning of June, Dr. Patel journeyed on a volunteer dental mission trip to the Dominican Republic to help people with dental problems. The team worked 5 days in a dental clinic and was able to help many people who were missing several teeth and/or all of their teeth. They performed many dental implant procedures and surgeries and were able to help many people get their teeth back or start them on the road to getting their smiles back.


Dr. Patel also spent time learning advanced implant surgery techniques with one of his mentors. He greatly enjoyed the time he spent at the clinic and working with the people there. They were all wonderful.  Dr. Patel consistently tries to perform volunteer dental work overseas working to improve the oral health and smiles of people all around the world.
