McKenna Orthodontics Receives Symbolic Gifts from Tufts

FEEDING HILLS — On June 1, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine presented Tufts alumni Dr. Stephen McKenna and Dr. Paul McKenna a glass sculpture in the form of an elephant. In some parts of the world, the elephant is a symbol for peace, intelligence, longevity, and dignity. Jumbo, the elephant, is Tufts’ mascot.

Dr. Huw Thomas, dean of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and Elizabeth Kearney, senior director of Development & Alumni Relations, presented the symbolic gifts to the father and son orthodontists at McKenna Orthodontics in Feeding Hills. Artist and glassmaker Simon Pearce, whose mill is located in Quechee, Vt., created the handmade sculpture.

In 2018, McKenna Orthodontics, with locations in Feeding Hills, Chicopee, and Longmeadow, will celebrate its century year, while Tufts University School of Dental Medicine will mark its 150th anniversary.
