Dr Ogunnaike

Dayo Ogunnaike, DDS

Dr. Dayo Ogunnaike was raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. She is one of four dentists in her family — with more on the way! She attended the University of Maryland in College Park for her undergraduate studies and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy with a concentration in communications and linguistics. Her intentions were to attend law school. As an undergrad student, Dr. Ogunnaike earned money as a beautician and cosmetologist. She obtained a cosmetology license as an apprentice in a salon and barbershop. While receiving orthodontic treatment, she found another way in which she could incorporate her love for beauty and aesthetics in the medical field. This is also when she discovered her deep interest in oral health and hygiene, so she deferred her admissions to law school and secretly pursued dentistry. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Maryland’s School of Dentistry, which happens to be the very first dental school in the world!

While in dental school, Dr. Ogunnaike became an Albert Schweitzer fellow and has committed her career to addressing the oral health care needs of underserviced communities and populations. She continues to participate, volunteer and commit her time to community service activities that promote oral, mental, and physical health and beauty. Holding a dental license in the state of Maryland and in Washington D.C. allows her to service a wide and diverse population of patients.

She is currently a member of the American Dental Association and the Maryland State Dental Association, and she is pursuing her fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Ogunnaike is a certified Invisalign provider, and she is also certified in botulinum toxin and dermal filler injectables, which is another way in which she loves to combine cosmetology and dentistry.

Dr. Ogunnaike loves spending time with her daughter, traveling, cooking, attending family events, styling hair, sewing, and working on DIY projects and arts and crafts. Dr. Ogunnaike and her husband are also big drag racing and Formula 1 fans. They attend national drag racing events around the country. Dr. Ogunnaike and her husband attend at least one Formula 1 race a year in different countries around the world!
