Why Did You
Want to Become
When he was in high school, Dr. Hegazi’s father suggested that he might be interested in becoming a dentist one day, and the mention stuck with him. He knew he liked working with his hands and helping others, so it seemed like a good fit – and the rest is history. Today, he couldn’t imagine having any other job!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Hegazi graduated from Adelphi University Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then went on to Tufts University, where he completed his Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2001. While attending Tufts, he was granted the Two-Year Health Professions Scholarship with the United States Air Force and became a Dental Officer/Captain for the U.S. Air Force after graduation, serving at Andrew’s Air Force Base until 2004. During his three years in the Air Force, he attended several rotations and residencies involving oral surgery, implantology, sedation dentistry, and infection control. These experiences provided him with vital training that still sets him apart from other colleagues today!
