About our team

In 2015, Nilesh Patel, DDS (a general dentist practicing in Portchester, NY), and Amul Patel, DDS (private practice in Mount Vernon, NY and Stamford, CT), were accompanied by Cecelia Sorelle, a Navy dentist with a practice in Queens, New York.

Together, they traveled to Haiti for the third Dental Mission with Dental Assistants, Ustav Patel, Jamie Patel, Maria Mastrocola and George Solomon, Team Leader.

The team worked on the Island of LaGonave, in a small fishing town of Anse A Galet, primarily treating emergency patients as well as doing extractions and fillings.

The team saw between 80-100 patients a day for over a week, including people three hours away in the mountainside village of Nan Sema. Their commitment to changing lives through dental care has continued with their yearly missions with Operation International.
