Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Roslyn New York dentist Dr. Gregory Yunov

Dr. Yunov decided to become a dentist back when he first witnessed his first dental extraction when he was 17 years old. He was surprised to see the true size of a person’s tooth compared to what he imagined them to look like. Other than discovering the actual structure of a human tooth, the main thing that caught his attention was the complete transition from pain and panic in a patient to that of pain-free relief after finishing their procedure. He later decided to pursue a career as a dentist as the ideal profession for him, and the rest is history!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

First attending Queens College, City University of New York for his bachelor's degree, Dr. Yunov later went on to study at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine for his dental doctorate. He also completed six years of an oral and maxillofacial surgery residency as well as five years in a private dental practice.
Dr. Yunov remains passionate about continuing education to expand his skills, and he’s even a proud and active member of professional organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • New York Dental Association
  • New Jersey Dental Association
  • American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

If you don’t find him at the office treating pearly whites, Dr. Yunov is most certainly spending quality time with his wife—an orthodontist—and their two beautiful daughters. His hobbies involve things like bike riding, reading, hanging out with friends, and learning about new technology. One interesting thing about him is that he’s a fifth-generation healer! In addition to being a dentist, Dr. Yunov is also a physician. Both of his parents are physicians, many of his cousins, uncles, and aunts also work in the healthcare field, and his maternal grandfather was even a department director of neurology.
