I am excited to be an integral part of a company that is committed to the educational success of healthcare professionals."
Dr. Lozier began his career in private practice in 1988 during which time he founded Dental Decks. He left private practice in 2003 to devote his full-time attention to building the Dental Decks business and brand. Dr. Lozier joined Oakstone as Dental Decks' editor in Chief in August 2011 when Oakstone acquired the company.
Dr. Lozier earned a B.S. in biology from Trenton State College, and received a DDS from Georgetown University School of Dentistry.
