8 2019 HEALTH & WELLNESS GUIDE | THE VALLEY BREEZE We are excited to introduce Dr. Alicia Tavares as part of our Dental Associates of Cumberland Team. Dr. Tavares joined our team last summer of 2018 and we want to introduce her to the community. You will be glad to know Dr. Alicia will be available to see patients on Saturdays. Please help us welcome her and get to know a little bit about Dr. Alicia Tavares: Dr. Alicia Tavares graduated summa cum laude from Prov- idence College in 2013 with a BS in Biology after receiving the St. Dominic Scholarship, which granted her full tuition for her schooling. She then went on to graduate summa cum laude from the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine to earn her DMD degree in 2018, where she received both the BU Annual Scholarship and the Spencer N. Frankl Scholarship. During her time at Boston University, Dr. Tavares was an active member of the American Student Dental Association through her work with the Pre-Dental Committee, where she helped organize events to educate and encourage undergraduate students who were considering a career in dentistry. She was also involved with the Student National Dental As- sociation, which hosted many events to promote oral health awareness and education throughout the community. Dr. Tavares was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society during her senior year of dental school. Dr. Tavares is currently a member of the American Dental Associ - ation and the Massachusetts Dental Society. Dr. Tavares loves giving back to her community, and vol- unteers once a week at a local homeless shelter playing with children. In her spare time, Dr. Tavares enjoys reading, cross stitching, singing, playing piano, and spending time with her family and friends. Dr. Tavares currently lives in Seekonk, Massachusetts with her mother and father, and will be mov - ing to Rehoboth, Massachusetts with her fiancé after getting married this September. As always, I will be continuing to see patients and expand- ing on our Community and International Dental Outreach through the "Good Shepherd Dental Care" At the Providence Rescue Mission and the newly certified "Go Be International Inc." 501-C3 non- profit organization. Our Mission is to help establish dental clinics in the poor areas so that the low income, homeless and unemployed can receive free dental care locally and in countries like Guate- mala and the Dominican Republic.
