Originally from San Jose, CA, Dr. Roselyn Oji has known since she was in the second grade that she wanted to be in healthcare. Although she didn’t enjoy going to the dentist when she was younger, she shadowed her childhood dentist during her undergrad and fell in love with the profession. She knew that private practice was right for her because she could get to know patients on a personal level and develop an environment that felt more like family.
The most rewarding thing to Dr. Oji is being able to establish trust with patients to develop a smile that will benefit their lives. She wants her patients to feel as comfortable as possible and loves being able to strike up conversations with everyone. Her style of dentistry is patient-centered, and she enjoys taking her time with patients because she wants to ensure that they receive exceptional care.
Education and Residency
Dr. Oji earned a bachelor’s degree in Cell Biology from UC Davis in 2005. She attended dental school at the University of California, San Francisco and graduated in 2016 with her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Following her degree, Dr. Oji completed her residency at Community Medical Center in Fresno, CA, where she gained hands-on experience and training with hospital dentistry, community dentistry, and also at the VA.
Outside the Office
When she’s not at work, Dr. Oji enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and cooking. She loves being an active member of the community and participates in various community outreach programs and volunteer opportunities.
