AF dentist traces roots, aids Haitians

Every reservist on Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, New York has sat in Maj. Stanley Michel's chair at least once. As a dentist for the 914th Airlift Wing, he maintains a record of everyone's teeth. During drill weekend, he can inspect up to 3,200 pearly whites in under twelve hours. He has to work fast to meet his quota but that's nothing compared to what Maj. Michel does as a volunteer. Tech. Sgt. Lucas Morrow has the story.

NIAGARA FALLS AIR RESERVE STATION, N.Y. -- Maj. Stanley Michel, a dentist from the 914th Airlift Wing, volunteers in Haiti annually to treat the less fortunate. Michel, who's parents are both from Haiti, feels a duty to give back to the poorest country in the Americas.  Using limited resources, Michel, along with two other dentists, treated more than 100 patients daily.
