        "I Wanted to Specialize in Aesthetics"
        Interview with Dr. Mevlüt Yazıcı Head of Aesthetic Dentistry at Care in Turkey
        Hello Doctor and thank you very much for having me. Would you like to start by giving us a general overview of your scientific background and achievements?

        Of course. It is very nice to meet you, I am a prosthodontics specialist, a 2011 Marmara University graduate with a PhD in Zirconium Crowns. I have been in practice for over 10 years and found my own clinic 3 years ago. I have been mostly focused on dental tourism with a sweet spot for zirconium crowns.

        Why are people interested in zirconium crowns? What makes them special?

        Zirconium crowns were invented as a solution and new approach to metal-supported ceramics. Zirconium allows us to give a more natural look to our crowns, and they are extremely durable as metals. They have lots of advantages. Its production is sensitive, its intra-oral working process is sensitive and complicated, but it helps us to get much more aesthetic results than porcelain-coated metal crowns. At the moment, it is safe to say that zirconium crowns are the most practical and durable material available.

        Amazing. Why did you decide, and when did you decide to become a dentist?

        During high school I was sure about wanting to be a medical practitioner. There are several reasons that tilted me towards dentistry. I wanted to specialize in aesthetics. I wanted to see immediate results of my work. Not like internal medicine, not like infection specialists. I also like to work with my hands, instead of medications, I like manipulation, like an artist. I also wanted to be freer, more independent. As a general doctor, I must work in a big hospital, being a small part of a big thing. Now I have my own clinic.

        A dentist and an entrepreneur. What do you like the most and the least about your job?

        What I like the most… oh, I’m emotional right now (laughs), I like to show their look in the mirror to my patients, to show the result. That’s the best part, believe me. The worst part… well, I have to find a political answer (laughs)! In my dreams, I want to be everything to my patient, but that’s utopic, of course. I want to be the technician, doctor, secretary, assistant.

        It means you care about the patient experience. What’s the most difficult, or craziest operation you’ve performed? One that has stayed in your mind.

        It was a bride and a groom. They decided to have their aesthetic treatment just one week before the wedding. It was stressful for all of us, the whole family. 20 people attended the treatment! Which means, questions x20, stress x20, we didn’t have time, expectations were huge, crowns and veneers for both. So of course I got invited to the wedding, but I didn’t go. We finished the last part of the treatment just 24h before the ceremony. I had been seeing everybody for a whole week, I was very stressed and I wanted to relax!

        That’s a hilarious story. What future trends do you see happening in dentistry in the next 10-20 years?

        Clearly digitalization is set to change everything. It will improve the practice and will handle a lot of human work, especially in the laboratory. Humans are still needed, but in 10-20 years probably not so much. We want humans to control the machines and the machines to do the most delicate part of the work. It will help us to have more successful, faster results, and it will help us to foresee the results with minimum changes through improved digital planning. Let me emphasize this again: especially in the laboratory and manufacturing part, with high-precision 3D printing, oral and dental impressions, that kind of thing.

        There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, beyond the clinic. I notice you are very knowledgeable not only about the medical practice but also the manufacturing, laboratory, commercial part…

        I have no choice, I’m managing a clinic. I believe doctors are also responsible of the manufacturing part, a good doctor cannot depend on the laboratory. Doctors should be the ones to orchestrate the technicians and get the best product. If doctors are not knowledgeable about this, it will be the technicians instructing the doctors. Patients don’t want that. My PhD and experience as a researcher and lecturer have been paramount to learning more about the kitchen side of dentistry.

        On a more personal note, doctor. Do you have a wife, kids?

        No, I’m single, but I have one cat and one dog (laughs), they are my children. I do not have a lot of spare time to date or have hobbies to be honest, it’s a lot of work managing the clinic.

        You don’t have a good life-work balance?

        I have a very good work-work balance (laughs). In my spare time I try to do sports, I’m going to get back to it more seriously. I was professional in Karate, Kick-Boxing and Muay Thai. I will start training for next year’s veteran’s tournament in summer. I was the 2020 champion. It’s a good way to release stress and stay fit and motivated. 

        I see you do not only repair teeth, you also break them!

        No, no, we protect ourselves (laughs). I haven’t broken any teeth, yet. I dislocated a guy’s jaw, but there was a good doctor around, so he relocated it in the post. And… I won the fight.
