The Akeso Way

Our partnership platform makes the complicated become easy.
Experience, expertise, and efficiency.

Our Firm

Akeso was founded in 2014 with the acquisition of an unassuming and previously closed oral surgery practice in Parkville, Maryland. The practice grew to 7 locations in 5 years, thriving in a highly competitive marketplace. Through situational awareness, clear observation, and focused learning we honed our skillset to accomplish our mission to streamline operations and achieve clinical excellence. We developed the forward-leaning vision of collaboration, not corporatization. To that extent, Akeso remains physician-owned and free of obligations to a corporate majority board.

Chief Executive Officer

Trevann F. Lyn, DMD – Dr. Lyn was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica W.I. He received his undergraduate degree in Biology at Benedict College, SC where he was mentored and conducted research in genetic oncology under prominent professors at University Of South Carolina. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA, and was accepted on a full academic scholarship to the University Of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where he completed his Doctorate in Dental Medicine.

In recognition of his natural abilities in the surgical arts, he was awarded the prodigious Topazian Award, an honor given to only a select few historically whom have displayed an uncanny sense of community service. Following dental school his interest in oral and maxillofacial surgery led him to the competitive Howard University Hospital Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Washington DC where he completed his training at one of DC’s most active Level 1 trauma centers.

Whilst in residency, Dr. Lyn’s surgical cases traversed the gamut from facial trauma, dentoalveolar, TMJ, oncology, esthetic and orthognathic surgery; the latter facilitated under the tutelage of world-renowned craniofacial surgeon Dr. Jeffery Posnick, whom has established a practice with a global referral base. Culminating his experiences with understanding the mechanisms and reconstructive techniques employed to treat the most severe craniofacial and trauma patients, Dr. Lyn authored several scientific studies during his time as Chief Resident at Howard University Hospital, in the hopes that his knowledge could be shared with the next generation of surgeons.

 

“The most important benefit of Akeso is the strength of our integrated network. It’s not the perfect partners, but the right partners that make our platform successful. Our partners and stakeholders share our vision and values. This is the mark of our enduring partnerships.”

Trevann Lyn, DMD

Dr. Lyn obtained his board certification in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at first eligibility, and forged ahead with his commitment to lifelong learning; most recently he has received training in advanced temporomandibular joint surgery available to only a select handful of oral surgeons worldwide.

In the previous years his surgery cases for complicated wisdom tooth removal was close to 1,000 under general anesthesia/intravenous sedation, with over 450 dental implants placed in conjunction with prominent prosthodontist, periodontists and general dentists in complex full mouth rehabilitation cases often requiring extensive bone grafting. After hours, he still maintains privileges at his former training institution where he trains residents at Howard University hospital and oversees surgical repair of complex maxillofacial trauma, denotalveolar surgery and reconstructive jaw surgery.

He has contributed countless hours to local and international charity events such as CT Mission of Mercy and dental clinics in his home land of Jamaica. Dr. Lyn looks forward to continue his support of the local dental community and its patients with the same care and understanding he has cultivated throughout the years.
