Dr. Nalin D. Patel, 62, of Newtown, Bucks County, a dentist with offices in Langhorne and Fairless Hills, died Monday, Oct. 8, of a blood infection at St. Mary Medical Center.
Dr. Patel opened his first office in 1992, buying the practice now known as Fairless Hills Dental Center, his niece Rupal Patel said.
He established a chain of offices in 2005 known as Advanced Dental Care, based in Fairless Hills.
And in 2007, his niece said, he opened Oxford Valley Dental Excellence in Langhorne.
All three entities are still in business.
Dr. Patel broadened his interests in 2011, opening Shri India Travel in Langhorne, which his niece said is a travel agency open to all but "designed more for religious trips" to India.
