Nathan D. Oster, DDS

Dentist


Dr. Nathan Oster majored in fine art at La Sierra University before attending the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, from which he graduated in 2014. He continues his dental education regularly and has completed basic and surgical implant master courses through the Advanced Dental Implant Research & Education Center. He has also received the Army Commendation Medal for his work with the Special Forces while running their onsite dental clinic in Florida.

Dr. Oster is a member of the following professional Organizations:

As a dentist, his goal is to carry on the tradition of excellent care established by his father, who operated out of their office for 38 years prior to Dr. Oster taking over. Dr. Oster wants all his patients to be able to complete all their treatment for any dental needs they have without being sent all over town. All specialty services, with very few exceptions, can be completed by Dr. Oster from start to finish.

Dr. Oster and his wife welcomed their daughter into the world at the end of March 2020. Outside of the office, Dr. Oster’s hobbies include surfing, golfing and snowboarding.

Liliana Romine

REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENIST


Liliana joined our team in February 2020! She has over 22 years of experience in dental hygiene, and goes the extra mile to make sure her patients receive the best possible care. Liliana cares for her patients as she would care for herself, and welcomes any feedback from them that will help her in providing them with high-quality care. It is important to Liliana that her patients trust her and feel comfortable with her while in her chair and in her hands. She enjoys Dr. Oster’s integrity and that her values align with the values of our practice and team, and works to contribute in any way she can. 

Liliana comes from a long line of beautiful, strong, hard-working women. Her mother raised five children on her own while working two jobs, and she and her sisters have raised children that are now PhD’s or are on their way to achieving a PhD. They have come a long way from poverty in Guatemala, and Liliana is grateful for the success her family has seen as a result of their hard work.
