CPD is exciting and motivating. Yet often we leave on a high and find ourselves a few days later doing the same dentistry having gained little for the thousands spent.

Dan is on a mission to make dentistry CPD more accessible and supportive for young dentists. And with a mission like that, he is certainly a friend of the Dental Head Start Podcast!

And as a graduate he is producing some fantastic dentistry. Check his work and tips out @dentist.dan on Instagram.
