Dr. Olu Oyegunwa
Hello! My name is Dr. Olusegun Oyegunwa, but most call me Dr. O. I was born in Nigeria and moved to The United States at the age of 9. I spent my childhood in Raleigh, NC.
After high school, I attended North Carolina State University, where I earned my undergraduate degree in Microbiology, summa cum laude. After undergrad, I continued my education at The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill where I received my dental degree. I’ll be honest, as a die-hard Wolfpacker, it was difficult studying at UNC, a rival, but I made it through.
After dental school, I pursued an extensive Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the VA Hospital in Fayetteville, NC. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and believe in a conservative approach towards dental care with a strong emphasis on prevention.
Outside of the office, I enjoy cheering on my alma mater, NC State, and spending time with my wife, Lydia, and family.
I am happy to help you realize your goals and expectations concerning your oral health. Let’s do it!
Dr. Lydia Oyegunwa
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!
