Dr. Oware is originally from Koforidua (AKA K-dua), Ghana, which is the capital of the eastern region in southern Ghana. He and his family moved to the United States when he was only six years old and they made their new home base in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. He attended Rutgers University where he studied Biology with a minor in Psychology. He went on to attend the Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2020.
Dr. Oware is committed to providing high-quality, state-of-the-art dental care to all his patients. His philosophy of care is one which is built upon mutual trust, respect, compassion and understanding. He believes it is imperative to understand each patient’s wants and needs to develop an individualized treatment plan. Dr. Oware is sensitive to patients who have high levels of anxiety and is determined to assist them in feeling comfortable in the dental office and providing them with the care they need. He is passionate about learning and is committed to continuing education courses to ensure that he is well-rounded and maintains his finger on the pulse of the latest trends in dentistry. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Pennsylvania Academy of General Dentistry.
He believes in giving back and making a difference in peoples’ lives on both the local and global levels. You will find him volunteering at the New Jersey food bank and soup kitchen during the holiday seasons. He has also worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for low income families. His family was able to fund and build a library in Ghana and Dr. Oware serves as an advocate for literacy. He supports his uncle’s endeavors to collect books for the African Book Challenge (ABC) to grow the library’s collection of literature. One day, Dr. Oware also hopes to establish a doctor without borders site in Ghana to help deliver much needed dental care. It is often difficult to find and receive dental care in Ghana unless you live close to a major city.
Dr. Oware and his girlfriend, Jennifer recently adopted a Pitbull mix, Georgia, and in their free time they enjoy taking her on long walks and hiking; Hawk Mountain was their most recent adventure! He takes great pleasure in woodworking and using a lathe – he believes there is nothing more satisfying than using a fallen tree to make something useful. You might also find Dr. Oware playing soccer, volleyball, or spending time with his nieces and nephews – a good game of hide and seek is customary for their visits.
