Professional History

I practice oral and maxillofacial surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital and I am an active member of the cleft and craniofacial programs. My curiosity about craniofacial anomalies began while I was a student at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. I was awarded a Milton Fund from Harvard Medical School to study the psychosocial development of children with major craniofacial anomalies. This work won First Prize in the American Dental Association/Dentsply Student Clinician Contest. In my first year of practice I was awarded the Fred A. Henny Fellowship from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation. The stipend was used to fund a project that assessed facial growth with Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography. At the national level I have been asked to be a board examiner for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. I am involved in developing and authoring education materials for the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery, specifically pediatric, cleft and craniofacial surgery. I have written several chapters for Knowledge Updates, a self study program, as well as editing a section on pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery. I have been asked by the editorial board of the Cleft Palate Craniofacial Journal to write questions pertaining to articles printed in the journal which allow readers to obtain continuing medical education (CME) credits.
