Dr. Barry believes that being a surgeon is fantastic. Oral surgeons take on complex and challenging cases while keeping a close interdisciplinary relationship with their colleagues from other specialties in the dental and medical fields. Dr. Barry finds this kind of teamwork immensely satisfying as it is rarely seen in other specialties in dentistry. He loves to know his patients more as people and enjoys witnessing how the results of his treatments change their lives for the better.
Since oral surgery is an always evolving specialty, Dr. Barry is keen on getting trained in new techniques and methods and meeting the leaders in the field. He loves improving himself by learning and researching to offer his patients as best as he can. “I savor every minute of my profession,” says Dr. Barry. “And that is what keeps me motivated.”
Dr. Barry has a diverse background, having lived in the Middle East, Germany, and the USA. He moved to Dubai in 2020. Since his parents have been in Dubai for the last 25 years, he knew the city very well and how it evolved magically over the years. This enthusiasm of Dubai to move forward has inspired him to relocate. He finds both Dubai and Frankfurt as multicultural and financial hubs of their respective regions, but Dubai has offered him everything Frankfurt has to offer in a more elegant, modern and sunny package. Dubai’s spectacular architecture has impressed him greatly. He also enjoys the sunny beaches and the diverse choices of cuisines that the city offers him.
Friends, family, learning and exploring new things and enjoying sports keep him engaged during his free time.
