Dr, Hamza Gaj


Where do I even start? So many fun facts! I was born in Livingstone, Zambia, a small city in Southern Africa where I lived until I was about 7. I then moved to Houston where I spent most of my adolescent years before attending the University of Texas in Austin where I got my bachelors degree in psychology with a business foundations minor. I went to graduate school for one year before applying and being accepted at Midwestern University in Chicago.

I’ve always gravitated towards art and science since I was in high school. During that time I was lucky enough to shadow a dentist where I developed a deeper understanding artistry and attention to detail. It was something that really drew me in. Dentistry is the perfect blend of art, technology and science, which align perfectly with my hobbies and passions. The field of dentistry also allowed me to improve people’s lives and give them a deeper confidence in themselves. I love the challenge of breaking the stereotypes of being a “scary” dentist and helping reshape people’s perspectives of who I am and how enjoyable a dental experience can be. I will always provide my patients with complete transparency and honesty even if they may not always be what my patients want to hear. Developing meaningful long lasting relationships with my patients is at the forefront of my values and I will always be grateful to be in a profession where I can provide the absolute best care for them when in need of it.

My time outside of the dental office is spent doing a multitude of things. I love spending timewith my nephews and nieces while also dedicating time aside to travel as often as possible. I dabble in photography and other side hobbies such as running my own podcast channel and creating digital other various digital content (@mogaj). I used to work at Apple as a genius so tech and gadgets have always been a big hobby of mine. If you ever want to talk about movies, music and all things pop culture, I’m also your guy as that is a major part of my personality.
