There is still some stigma that exists around oral surgeons performing cosmetic surgery, but not nearly as much as there once was, and that is largely due to today’s guest, Joe Niamtu. Joe developed a love for cosmetic facial surgery while doing his residency, but he had to fight for the right to pursue his dreams. Luckily Joe is not someone who takes no for an answer, and after a lawsuit and a change to the Dental Practice Act, he became the first person in Virginia to receive a cosmetic facial surgery license. Although his work has its downsides, which Joe candidly shares in today’s episode, he has never looked back, plans on never retiring, and spends a lot of his time educating others about his specialty (his eighth book is coming out next April!). According to Joe, the golden years are far from over for surgeons, and he has some valuable words of wisdom for anyone who is on the path to becoming one.
