Hello! My name is Patrick Patel and I am a 4th year pre-dental student at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am currently majoring in Biology and minoring in Business Administration and the current team leader of the newly formed UTA chapter of Volunteers Around the World. As team leader I plan on putting a team together for this upcoming summer to either volunteer in Peru or the Dominican Republic. I believe VAW is a wonderful opportunity to help everyone expand clinical experience about the dental field by learning from hands on experience.
