Passion turned into success
PhD, Dr. TRAN HUNG LAM (SURGEON)
Life, Goals and Hobbies: Words from Dr. Lam
When I was a boy my grandmother had removable dentures. As I grew up, I always noticed how she struggled with eating and had to cover her mouth when she laughed. These lasting experiences of her were the roots of my interest in dentistry, which led me down the path of stem cell tissue research.
I had an idea, that maybe, just maybe, I could figure out how to grow teeth back. And although scientists have not reached this milestone yet, heavy research is currently underway. When I first discovered the existence of implants, I strove to learn everything I could about them, and it became the primary focus of my work.
Although my dental work is of incredible importance to me, I have many hobbies outside of my professional life that bring a lot of joy, and strike positive balance between my work and personal life. I love to play and sing the guitar and I’m an avid tennis player. I play regularly, and love to compete in double match competitions.
In regards to my work, I am very passionate about dental implants and I really hope to implement this method throughout Vietnam and further across the globe. A confident smile can change people’s lives, and I have seen this procedure instantly bring joy to clients from across the world.
This fuels my fire as an implant specialist, and pushes me to dedicate more time to my craft. In my opinion, dental implants truly are an artform of their own that can rejuvenate anyones smile.
