Meet Dr. Osga
High-Tech Dentistry with a Smile
I love being a dentist! Every day I spend time with fascinating people, talking with and learning from them, as we work together to improve their oral health. My practice serves a diverse community and I appreciate how my patients’ stories and experiences enrich my life.
My team and I are passionate about painless, advanced dentistry. We’re patient and excel at helping people work through any dental anxiety they might have. Instead of judging and lecturing patients, we listen to their concerns and seek to understand what they need from care. I love having the ability to change people’s perspectives on dentistry: today’s dental technology and options mean comfortable treatment and amazing results!
I’ve been practicing since 2008: I knew, growing up, that I wanted to go into healthcare and am a former engineer. Dentistry is the perfect fit for my skills and interests. I’m able to help people improve their lives, by relieving pain, restoring function, and creating more beautiful smiles, and get to use my hands, technology, and tools in the process!
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
My Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) was awarded by the University of Michigan. Since receiving my degree I’ve actively pursued continuing dental education at every opportunity.
Remarkable advancements in oral healthcare, from new techniques and materials to revolutionary technologies, are ongoing. It’s essential I’m current on these changes in order to evaluate each and determine if they’re appropriate for my patients’ needs. I want patients to have multiple options for achieving and maintaining a healthy smile and continuing education allows me to offer those.
In addition to general dentistry, I’ve completed post-graduate courses on aesthetic (cosmetic), and implant dentistry. I’ve also studied full-mouth rehabilitation, occlusion, and surgical grafting procedures. My patients deserve leading-edge dental care and continuing education ensures I exceed their expectations.
Beyond the Practice
I grew up in a mixture of the Chicagoland area and northern Michigan, so I’m familiar with both urban and rural living. Right now my wife and I live in Houston, where we’ve been for several years, and are preparing to move to the Brazoria area.
Our eventual goal is to purchase 20-25 acres and raise cattle, chickens, and whatever else we want. And I’ll need space to tinker with cars and motorcycles, too. Right now I’m converting my 25 year old Miata into an Exocet.
