Why Did You Decide to Become an Oral Surgeon?

Dr. Yusupov always wanted to be in medicine, and dentistry caught his attention for multiple reasons. It would allow him to be a doctor and use critical thinking, and at the same time, he would get to work with his hands every day to make lasting, positive impacts on his patients’ lives. He says that the face is what represents the person, and being able to repair and modify it through oral surgery is enormously rewarding.
