When Did You Decide to Further Your Expertise into Oral Surgery?

At Columbia University we went through each dental specialty rotation.  In oral maxillofacial surgery, I was impressed by the depth of knowledge and skills and oral maxillofacial surgeon was trained in.  At times, as the last line of defense in cases for patients seeking help, and it was extremely rewarding to be able to help patients.
