We have a new Dental Director!


Dr. Parita Patel has been doing big things at Health Care for the Homeless since she joined the dental team almost two years ago. She spearheaded the dental program at our West Baltimore clinic, and will now move to 421 Fallsway to take on the role as our new Dental Director.

After graduating from dental school, Parita spent a year as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, working to increase dental care for vulnerable populations by implementing a program to provide dental services to young adults experiencing homelessness in the Boston area. She then moved back to California to begin her professional career at a private practice. A few years later, she returned to the DMV area, and worked as a general dentist for a number of organizations before joining Health Care for the Homeless. All in all, she has moved between the West and East coasts five times!  

In addition to being a Doctor of Dental Medicine, Parita also has her Master’s Degree of Public Health from Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health.  

When she’s not helping others keep their smiles beautiful, Parita enjoys cooking, traveling and spending time with her friends and family. She also speaks four languages— Spanish, Hindi, Gujarati and English, of course.

Brandon Berryain doesn’t want his position on our Board of Directors to be a status symbol. For him, it’s an opportunity to ground the Board with his lived experience and encourage other clients to get involved. Brandon says, “As much as being a leader matters, it’s being an example that matters more.”
