Dr. Oza has been living in Hammond, LA for 4 years now. He was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He received his BS in biomedical engineering from Louisiana Tech University where he graduated with a Cum Laude distinction. After engineering, he decided to pursue dentistry. He chose the LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans for his dental education. After graduating from dental school in 2003, he decided to further his dental education by doing a general practice residency at the VA Medical Center in Biloxi, Mississippi where he gained a great deal of experience in oral surgery, prosthodontics, and geriatric dentistry.

In his free time, Dr. Oza enjoys playing the guitar, violin, drums, piano, volunteering, and playing tennis. He believes in giving back to the community and his dental profession. He served as the treasurer for the Greater Baton Rouge Dental Association for three years, has been a member of the Northlake Dental Association for four years, and has participated as a delegate for the House of Delegates for the Louisiana Dental Association twice. Also, Dr. Oza owns OceanPointe Dental Academy and currently teaches an assistant class, twice a week in the evening, to train students to become dental assistants.

Continuing dental education and the newest technology are integral parts in providing excellent care to patients. That’s why Dr. Oza stays up to date in the latest research, technology, and dental equipment.

He has completed training in placing implants through Osteoready and Alabama Implant Education. He is also qualified to perform Invisialign treatment and has received training on traditional straight wire braces through Gerety Orthodontics.
