David Ward, PhD
David Ward is a dental student at LSU School of Dentistry. Originally from Sugar Hill, Georgia, he has lived in Louisiana since 2006 when he started undergrad at Southeastern Louisiana University (SELU). He met his wife there in 2009, and they were married in 2012. Since SELU, they have been through nursing school and graduate school together. Currently, they now live in Hammond, Louisiana with their son Jackson. While David attends dental school, his wife is a full-time trauma nurse at North Oaks Hospital. They hope to relocate to Georgia once David graduates. There, Lord willing, they would like to run a comprehensive dental practice. Fun fact about them, despite playing sports his entire life as well as football at SELU, David never watches sports or keeps up with teams. Instead, when the Saints or LSU are playing, his wife and son cheer them on while he cooks the game-day food.
