Dr. Lanre Somefun




Lanre Oye-Somefun aka " Dr Somefun"  graduated from New York University College Of Dentistry (NYUCD) were he earned his DDS. 

While at NYUCD,  he was selected into the highly prestigious Special Patient Honors Program, which exposed him to managing the complex care of the most vulnerable patients.  He is the recipient of the Silverman award for clinical excellence at NYUCD.

He is committed to community service and was part of a team selected to participate in NYUCD- Henry Schein Global Dental Outreach program treating children in Grenada. 

The Global outreach program in Grenada was truly a fulfilling experience and a personal confirmation of his genuine interest in Pediatric dentistry. 

After completing a two year General Practice Residency, he went further and completed a 2 year Pediatric residency program with the NYU Lutheran program in Nashville Tennessee, where he became the Chief resident.  Dr Somefun’s pediatric dental philosophy is be kind, be committed, love what you do, and have fun while doing it.

Outside work, he enjoys sharing his life with his adorable wife, Yewande.  He also loves reading science fiction novels, traveling, meeting people, absolutely loves nature and when he can’t get away he compensates by watching nature on the National geographic channel.  

Dr Somefun is excited to be in Hopkinsville, and looks forward to providing quality care to all the children in the area.
