Growing up, Dr Vladimir Pastouk was always interested in dentistry. He enjoyed taking apart animals to see their teeth and organs, so it was no surprise that he decided to become a dentist himself one day. After years of training and specializations, he has finally realized his dream. Dr Pastouk's dentistry journey began in 1991 at the Kiev Medical University School of Dentistry in Ukraine. After a few years working as a dentist in the United States, he decided to specialize in dental implants and cosmetics- a decision that would lead him to attend the Advanced Standing Program offered at the College of Dentistry at Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Upon completing this program, Dr Pastouk moved back to Cleveland, where he took a one-year Mini-residency program in Atlanta.
