Meet Dr. Jauna Souza
"I am very excited and honored to join Baarsvik Orthodontics, a practice that not only creates beautiful orthodontic results but establishes meaningful relationships with patients, family members and the community. A smile is one of those things that can positively affect those around us and can stay with a person for a lifetime and I am overjoyed to be a part of the transformation."
Education and Work History
After graduating from New Bedford High School in 1999, I went on to study at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. There, I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology, graduating Cum Laude in 2003. I then pursued my dental degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2007. I practiced for 2 years in New Bedford as a General Dentist exclusively treating children and adolescents. I then earned my Certificate in Orthodontics from Montefiore Medical Center in New York and graduated as Chief Resident in 2012.

Outside the Office
I was born and raised in New Bedford. I enjoy spending quality time with my family including my mother, sister, niece and nephew. My hobbies include cooking, photography, scrapbooking, and traveling. I have been involved in Project Stretch which is a non-profit corporation providing vital dental services to needy children. I look forward to being involved in many other local charities and foundations within the community now that I am back in the area.
