Three alumni from the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) were recognized by the Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) as part of their “Ten Under 10” group. This recognition is for MDS member dentists who have been in the profession for ten years or less, and show enthusiasm for the profession, organized dentistry, and caring for their patients. The MDS Journal has been compiling this list since 2005.
To qualify, dentists must have graduated from dental school in the last ten years, be current MDS members, and have made significant contributions to the profession, their community, organized dentistry, or all of the above. The three honorees with GSDM ties were Dr. Kevin Oliveira ORTHO 09, Dr. Ana Serrenho DMD 13 ORTHO 16, and Dr. Jay Theva DMD 12.
Dr. Kevin Oliveira currently runs his own practice, Coastal Orthodontics, out of Marion, Middleboro, and Wareham, Massachusetts. His father was also an Orthodontist, and Dr. Oliveira was always drawn to the profession. Dr. Oliveira was the recipient of the 2014 Massachusetts Association of Orthodontists Anthony Gianelly Award, and the 2017 Invisalign Premier Provider and Teen Provider Award. Dr. Oliveira resides in Marion, Massachusetts with his wife, Dr. Tristi Oliveira, a Pediatric Dentist, and their four children.
Dr. Ana Serrenho completed all of her dental education at GSDM, earning her DMD in 2013, her MSD in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in 2016, and her CAGS in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics also in 2016. During her studies, she was selected to the Massachusetts Dental Society Leadership Institute, a program designed to train the next generation of leaders in dental medicine. She currently practices at Lawrence Braces in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Dr. Serrenho continues to give back to patients in need, and has recently completed mission trips to Mexico and Cape Verde.
Dr. Jay Theva graduated from GSDM in 2012, and currently practices at the Fenway Community Health Center as an attending dentist, and at the Unident Dental Center private practice as a general dentist. Dr. Theva was raised in the dental office, as his mother, Dr. Mathi Theva, has been running their family practice for over 30 years. Dr. Theva currently serves on both the Boston District Dental Society and the New Dentist Committee for the Massachusetts Dental Society.
