Dr. Ohmer, a native of Thibodaux, LA, graduated from Nicholls State University in 1975 with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry. He then earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1979 from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. After graduation, he spent three years on active duty in the United States Army. After his release from active duty, he practiced in Baton Rouge, LA, and was a member of the Louisiana and Florida National Guard until 1989 when he returned to active duty in the United States Navy Dental Corps as a Lieutenant Commander. He completed a one-year fellowship in oral surgery in 1984 at Naval Dental Center Great Lakes, IL. Dr. Ohmer served his country in the Navy in many assignments worldwide until his military retirement in 2016 as a Captain.
