[00:00:06.986] I'm Gabriel Ketemepi, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, [00:00:11.515] which means I take care largely of the oral surgical procedures, [00:00:15.215] implants, wisdom teeth, [00:00:17.257] and any minor oral surgeries that may be needed. [00:00:19.760] It was a lucky fall into dentistry. [00:00:22.157] I was in biologists at Uni [00:00:24.314] and had to choose between general medicine and dentistry, [00:00:27.640] and once I opted for dentistry, [00:00:30.160] there wasn't any other specialty appealing to me [00:00:33.043] apart from the maxillofacial surgery, [00:00:34.844] so after dental school, I went on with oral maxillofacial surgery. [00:00:38.760] As a surgeon, you are iterally reconstructing people's mouths. [00:00:42.700] You combine your medical knowledge and aesthetics [00:00:45.872] to put smiles on people's faces, and you get instant results. [00:00:49.280] It's a lot of joy when your patient gets up and say, [00:00:51.730] "Oh, thank you, Doc, I appreciate this look."
