The choice to become an oral surgeon is not an easy one. It is a decision that takes hard work, tenacity, and intellect, among countless other traits and skills.


Dr. Zent’s choice


For Steve A. Zent, DDS, MD, training began right after high school and continued extensively after that. He first attended the University of North Dakota and studied biology; thereafter, he went to dental school at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Then, Dr. Zent went on to earn his medical degree at the University of Kentucky.


Dr. Zent enjoys oral surgery as it allows him to explore all areas of his interests: surgical, dental, and medical. Hear him talk about his journey to become an oral surgeon in the video below.
