Team Excellence Award

Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Team Excellence Award!


Donald Braho, Ange Brome, Danny Dicicco, Jorge Freitas,
Matt Johnston, Kevin O’Dea and Richard Shorter

These seven individuals continually strive, in an ever-advancing technological landscape, to provide excellent service to diverse staff and clinical environments within the Dental Health Sciences building. They also provide their expertise to 8 different Tufts Dental Facilities practices located in special needs sites throughout the state of Massachusetts.

Furthermore, the IT Team supports multiple laboratory environments spread out across the Boston and Medford campuses, is involved in student clinical matters, data mining for research projects, report building for all departments and many, many more tasks that augment the greater school-wide goal of achieving excellence at TUSDM.

In the words of the team’s nominator:

“This team is very visible, busy and proactive. They have developed effective relationships by their superb customer service interactions and technical capabilities. They have excellent interpersonal skills and communicate extremely well with each other and the faculty. They are valued for their diligent work, their flexibility and willingness to solve problems, their turnaround time with a very pleasant personality at all times.”

“We, the Tufts Dental School community, could not function without this team. Their support is essential to the entire computer systems – hardware and software – as well as the ability of the faculty, staff, and students to function at the dental school.”

Please join us in congratulating the Information Technology Team for their extraordinary work!
