Meet Dr. Jose

Dr. Sanju Jose grew up in Maryland. Born in India, Sanju immigrated with his immediate family to the United States at the age of 9. After graduating from Parkville High School in Maryland, he attended University of Maryland Baltimore County, majoring in Biology. He then went on to obtain his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Prior to committing to the specialty of periodontics, he completed a general practice residency at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, where he was exposed to a variety of patient populations and cases in the background of a Level 1 Trauma Center. From there, he went on to complete his post-doctoral training in periodontics and dental implants at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, one of the leading research universities in the United States. While there, Dr. Jose dedicated part of his time to research, working with various bone grafting materials to help in regeneration.
