Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. T has a unique background as the son of a first generation Nigerian-American Father and a seventh generation Georgian Mother. While growing up in the Stone Mountain – Lithonia Area, Dr. T was always involved in providing service to his community. He participated in activities that ranged from working with the United Way to soup kitchens. Dr. T graduated from Rock Chapel Elementary School and Lithonia High School.
Following Dr. T‘s graduation from Lithonia, his love for mathematics and science led him to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he completed a degree in Chemical Engineering. Feeling a certain zeal for oral health care following graduation from Tech, Dr. T attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where he earned his doctor of dental medicine (DMD) degree. While at Harvard, he found no greater joy than providing care to the smallest dental patients.
Dr. T pursued a residency in pediatric dentistry, and that journey took him to the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas, where he was trained to treat a wide variety of pediatric patients. His experiences included everything from treating children with extreme anxiety to caring for medically compromised children. Following his specialty training, Dr. T moved back to Atlanta and worked at a group practice prior to realizing his dream of opening a pediatric practice in the same area where he lived as a child.
Dr. T has earned his board certification in Pediatric Dentistry and is involved in numerous dental organizations throughout Georgia and the nation. He is still active in the community and performs community service during his free time. Dr. T continues to demonstrate his passion for providing healthcare and education to each one of his patients as they grow from children to young adults.
