Luis Boza, DDS
Dr. Boza joins us from the land of the “Pura Vida” or “Pure Life”, Costa Rica. Here he got his DDS certificate in 2004, and practiced for five years in both government and private practice. He dedicated most of his time in private practice to “Dental Tourism,” making full mouth rehabilitations including implant reconstructions. He then decided to specialize in prosthodontics and went on to Rochester, New York where he did three years of specialty training and a one year fellowship in implant dentistry, including placement and rehabilitation of implants, at Eastman Institute for Oral Health. After this, he was recruited to teach prosthetics and cosmetics at the University of Iowa Dental School in Iowa City, Iowa. There he was a dedicated professor of future dentists focused on the science of making dentures and crowns, clinically and in a laboratory.
He also has an MBA specialized in Medical Business Administration from Universidad de Santa Paula, Costa Rica. While still in Costa Rica, he created a non-profit association, Project Talamanca, alongside other local dentists. This organization was dedicated to providing free dental services to the indigenous community of Talamanca.
In his leisure time he likes to play sports, even though he admits he is not great in any particular one. He especially enjoys soccer, street and mountain biking, volleyball, and tennis. Reading Sci-fi novels is a relatively new pastime of his, but he enjoys letting his imagination wander. He considers himself to be an amateur chef and definitely a foodie.
He is very happy to be a part of the team at Garine & Boza Prosthodontics, and he looks forward to helping you meet your dental needs.
