Hassan graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2018 and was awarded a prize in oral and maxillofacial surgery. After completing his foundation training, he decided to develop his surgical skills by joining the oral and maxillofacial surgery team in Manchester Royal Infirmary. His role included on-call cover where he managed patients with trauma, infection, jaw dislocation and cancer. He then pursued further training in South Wales which involved removing impacted wisdom teeth and managing anxious patients using conscious sedation and behaviour management techniques.
Following two years in oral and maxillofacial surgery, Hassan sought to broaden his clinical experience by working in the community dental services, where he managed paediatric and adult patients with complex health and behavioural challenges. At the same time he was employed by Health Education England where he steered a national project which led to the development of a toolkit on peer review for the dental team. He was also involved in a minor oral surgery procurement process as a clinical evaluator.
Hassan has published widely on a multiple areas within maxillofacial surgery, and has presented his findings at many national and international conferences.
Hassan currently works in the Yorkshire and Humber region as a Specialty Registrar in Oral Surgery. His duties include carrying out all aspects of oral surgery under local anaesthesia, sedation and general anaesthetic, whilst teaching dental students and dental core trainees. He is well known for his calm and comforting nature which has allowed him to provide positive dental experiences for many anxious patients.
Outside of dentistry Hassan enjoys playing badminton, football and studying language.
