How do you achieve the level of dentistry we see all over Instagram and Facebook?

Become a CPD Junkie perhaps, but what we learn in this podcast with Dr Lawrence Neville is that it is about a hunger to learn coupled with mentors and the people and specialists we surround ourselves with.

Dr Lawrence Neville has achieved a lot. He is a practice owner, Invisalign key opinion leader, gIDE Dental Implant Master and IAS Academy speaker. His own obsession with CPD and entrepreneurial tendencies led him to create Dental Events Australia, an event company that brings the best speakers the world has to offer to Australia.

This episode is packed with advice and insights, from podcasts to finding a mentor and implants through to aligners and smile makeovers. I really enjoyed recording this with Lawrence, I hope you enjoy listening to it just as much.
