Dr. BiNa Oh, DMD, CAGS
Diplomat, American Board of Periodontology
As a Periodontist and Implant Specialist, Dr. BiNa Oh treats patients whose supporting tissues of the teeth are affected by diseases or other conditions, those in need of tooth replacement through dental implant surgery, or situations when implants develop damaging conditions in their supporting structures. With over a decade of experience as a Periodontal specialist, Dr. Oh understands the destructive inflammatory processes that affects both bone and gum tissues surrounding teeth and implants, and how to integrate the treatment, management, and prevention of these issues with an overall comprehensive treatment that would be developed by CDMR's Prosthodontist, Dr. Chan. Working together as a team for over ten years, Dr. Oh and Dr. Chan treat some of the most complex situations involving a combination of Perio-Prosthodontics. With her background and training in studio arts, Dr. Oh is a uniquely skilled surgeon that combines her demonstrated expertise, creative eye, artistry, and artistic hand-skills to provide the best outcome possible.
Originally born in South Korea, Dr. BiNa Oh later settled in Massachusetts around 25 years ago, where she now calls home. After spending a few years learning English in Deerfield, MA, Dr. Oh attended Phillips Academy Andover and was then accepted into an accelerated 7-year B.A./D.M.D program at Tufts University that combined her Bachelors in Art History and Studio Art along with her Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine within a shorter span than is typical. Throughout the program, Dr. Oh received the Merit Scholarship, the Outstanding Preclinical Achievement in Operative Dentistry award, and the Association of Tufts Alumnae Senior Award for Ethics, Professionalism and Citizenship. Dr. Oh then attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and earned her Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Periodontology through a 3-year residency training. By making a significant achievement beyond the mandatory educational requirements of her specialization, Dr. Oh has achieved the status of being a Diplomat of the American Board of Periodontology/Board-Certified Periodontist. To obtain this certification, Dr. Oh demonstrated exceptional in-depth knowledge and proficiency in the full scope of periodontology and dental implant surgery through completing extensive oral and written examinations conducted by the Board of Periodontology.
Dr. Oh currently resides in Boston and splits her time as a clinician in private practice and as an Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and previously served as a periodontal consultant/supervisor at the Lutheran Medical Center's Advanced Education in General Dentistry programs. As a distinguished clinician and educator, she has published and lectured on various topics in Periodontology and in Implant Dentistry. Recently, she was honored to be a recipient of the Massachusetts Dental Society's 10 Under Ten Award, in recognition for her significant contributions to the profession, her community, and organized dentistry during her first ten years in practice. Dr. Oh has also recently been recognized by her colleagues and peers in Boston Magazine’s 2019 and 2020 Top Dentists and in Incisal Edge Magazine’s 2019 40 Under 40 - America’s Best Young Dentists.
When not practicing or teaching, Dr. Oh enjoys traveling and exploring new locations, cultures, and cuisines. She is an avid animal lover and has two adorable rescue dogs. Together with her husband, these two pups have been nurtured into health and now make occasional visits to Center for Dental Medicine & Reconstruction to brighten the day for all staff and patients. As a resident of Boston's South End, she enjoys the diverse cuisine, activities, and arts the town has to offer with her husband and two fur-babies. With her background in Art, she also loves to create new pieces of art when possible.
