Howdy! My name is Dr. Lydia Oyegunwa. Most call me Doc. Lo. I’ll respond to both. I was born in Ghana, located on the Western peninsula of Africa. I moved to the United States when I was 4 years old. I grew up in Fort Worth, Tx where I developed an appetite for chips and queso (Texas has the best around).
My first 2 years of college I was granted a scholarship to play volleyball at a small college in Seminole Oklahoma where I learned how to balance being a scholar-athlete. After my two years at SSC, I transferred to The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (Go Heels!).
After completing my biology degree I wasn’t quite ready to leave UNC, so I decided to enroll in their dental hygiene program. This is where my love of dentistry truly started to evolve. My dental hygiene training taught me a lot about the importance of patient care with an emphasis on prevention and patient education. So that was it! I became a perpetual student and continued my education at ECU School of Dental Medicine. At ECU, I developed a deeper understanding of dentistry and its role in the community. This training molded me into the practitioner I am today.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my husband, Olu, and family. Whenever possible I love to see my Heels beat up on some Wolfpackers, sorry honey.
I am excited to make you a part of my family and improve your knowledge and understanding of dentistry. I’m here to make you smile!
