DMD and certificate in advanced general sciences, Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine
Why He Was Nominated:
A general practitioner who spends roughly 40 percent of his time on oral surgery and implant cases, Dr. Koleini thrives when asked to go beyond the call of duty. He originally wanted to be a lawyer, but pivoted at age 23 to dentistry, and went on to graduate magna cum laude from Boston University’s dental school.
“You’re never going to look forward to getting a filling or crown, but I’m going to make it so that you don’t dread it either.”
Exciting New Trend:
Implant dentistry. “I place my own implants and really appreciate all the high-tech digital tools we have at our disposal. We know exactly how the final product will look before we even get started. Appointments are shorter, patients have almost no postoperative discomfort and the implants come out more predictably.”
Competing with large dental corporations to buy a practice of his own. “They would buy practices cash over asking price without even looking. It took me a while to find the perfect practice to buy, mostly because of that.”
