Additional Information

I was born and grown in small town in South Ukraine. I have a big family, two brothers an two sisters. We were living in a country side where my parents had a farm. In 2009 I graduated from Dnipropetrovsk State Medical Acade1ny in Ukraine. 2009-2011 internship as a general dentist at KZ ZCL Zaporizha city. In 2012 proceeded to obtain an Oral Surgery certificate. Since that time I have been working in private and government dental clinics. But l wasn't able to live out my newfound vocation at home. At first, civil unrest in Ukraine brought new patients, but eventually grew to unmanageable heights. Fearing for the future, I knew I could no longer safely treat people in my home country; and so, I fled to the United States. Since my time here in 2015, I have started learning English and worked as a dental assistant in NYC, while preparing admission tests to dental school. 2018-2020 graduated from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in New Jersey where once again earned degree Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD).

I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and little daughter, we like hiking, exploring beautiful places, learning new culture and try authentic food. My personal passion is fishing, there is nothing more relaxing for me than that. As for physical activity, I like to play tennis and I used to ride a bike very often during my life in Brooklyn, NY.
