- What do you like about living in Moscow?
- Life in Moscow is always busy and there are so many places to go.
- What is the main difference between working in Russia and in the USA? Where do you like it most?
- In the USA I had a stable schedule from 8am to 5pm with not too much exciting cases. Americans tend to take care of their teeth in advance. In Moscow patients come with different cases, which is more challenging. Some of them include extensive work and require special training. I did not have such an opportunity to restore and provide such services in the States. I can see tremendous results - indeed, there are patients who would come with literally almost no teeth in their mouth and leave the US Dental Care office with a perfect smile.
- Could you name your three favorite spots in Moscow?
- I really enjoy the Gorky Park throughout all the seasons: you can do ice skiing in winter and enjoy long walks in the warmer time. Moscow is good for walking in general, walking in the streets is a real pleasure to me, especially when the weather is good. Also, I would mention the Bolshoi Theatre. It brings you an unforgettable experience.
- What advice would you give to a person who comes to Russia for the first time?
- Start studying Russian right away. It is not an easy language but it makes your life in the city much more comfortable. You should learn at least some basic words and phrases. You can also enjoy groups of different interests where people can help you.
