Life & Hobbies

Dr. Hossein Azimi was born and raised in Sari, a beautiful city in the north of Iran and right south of the Caspian Sea. Sari hosts many tourists due to its unique and beautiful nature which includes beautiful green forests right next to a clean sandy beach.

Dr. Azimi earned his first DDS degree from the University of Tehran Medical Sciences in 2012. He practiced general dentistry in Iran until 2016 before immigrating to the United States. After working as a dental assistant for 2 years in Buffalo, NY, he was accepted to the Program for Advanced Standing Students at the University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry. Dr. Azimi then had the great opportunity to study dentistry for the second time in his life. 

“My journey helped me to know my flaws and the areas that I needed to improve and work on them while studying dentistry for the second time. I hope I can use all the knowledge and expertise that I gained at an American dental school and combine them with my own experiences to have a role, if even a small one, in improving dental care in the United States, my second homeland.”

When Dr. Azimi isn’t practicing dentistry, he loves exploring nature and hiking in the summer as well as skiing in Winter. He is always open to trying new restaurants and new food from all different cultures. He also likes playing Ping Pong and watching movies in his free time!
