Dr. Oliver Sun grew up 40 miles southwest of London, England, in the small town of Guildford. He eventually moved to Toronto, Canada, where he attended high school and completed his undergraduate degree. He decided to move to the United States to attend dental school in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduated second in his class from the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine in 2015. It was in dental school that he met his wife, a dentist as well and a native of Westlake, Ohio. They decided to practice in the New York/Connecticut area after graduation since neither of them had experienced living in the big city. After practicing general dentistry for three years in Connecticut, and completing a six month mini-residency for esthetics and implant dentistry, Dr. Sun and his wife decided to move back home, closer to friends and family in Ohio. Dr. Sun joins us from Port Clinton, Ohio, where he has been practicing dentistry for the past few years. In Dr. Sun’s free time he loves to play basketball, travel and explore new places with his family and friends.

Dr. Sun is proficient in several areas of dentistry such as cosmetic restorations, fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges. Dr. Sun’s extensive training allows him to provide more complex procedures to our patients such as root canals, oral surgery procedures, bone augmentation, gum surgery, Invisalign as well as the surgical placement of implants and implant restorations.
