Meet Dr. Yousuf Aboosi

"My favorite part about my job is the interaction with people. Teamwork and collaboration occur within periodontal field with restorative dentists and other specialists to deliver the best care to our patients. I enjoy interacting with people, forming ongoing rapport with patients, explaining their treatment options, and sharing with them the evidence behind each option. I also enjoy interacting with the restorative dentist teams. From my experience, I enjoy the cases where everyone is involved because the results are always better and more rewarding due to the team effort.” - Dr. Yousuf Aboosi

Dr. Aboosi’s passion for providing quality dental care is evident in his education and experience.

In 2011 he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Jordan. He then deepened his knowledge with a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in 2016, where he was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society.

Dr. Aboosi continued his education, choosing to narrow his focus down to periodontics. After three more years of intense training, he completed a Certificate in Periodontics and Master of Science in Dentistry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he served as Chief Resident and Principal Investigator on research seeking to identify potential sources of easily accessible mesenchymal stem cells for autologous grafting for use in the treatment of hard and soft tissue deficiencies. He simultaneously earned a Certificate in Periodontics at the Birmingham VA Medical Center, graduating from both programs in 2019.

In October 2019, Dr. Aboosi received the Dr. and Mrs. Gerald M. Kramer Scholar Award for Excellence. This prestigious award is given to one graduating periodontist in the nation each year based on their personal motivation for excellence in both character and academic achievement, and personal integrity as exemplified by leadership, community involvement, and concern for the needs of others.

Because he believes in the right for all people to receive exceptional dental treatment, Dr. Aboosi invests his time in making that a reality. His volunteer work has spanned people from all walks of life all over the globe. He has completed oral cancer screenings in Jordan, presented oral hygiene seminars at the Virginia Boys and Girls Club in Richmond and Pathways Birmingham — a shelter for homeless women and children, offered basic dental hygiene procedures to people in Jamaica, and provided dental services to U.S. veterans in Vermont.

Dr. Aboosi now calls Virginia home. With his love for nature, he enjoys hiking, camping, gardening, and creating floral arrangements. Other passions of his include travel, photography, cooking, and going on adventures with his fiancé, Adam, and their two dogs, Harper and Kennedy.
