Our Latest Tips
"Why do you want to be a dentist?" The cliché response to this common question is that we want to help people. And it goes without saying, our general dentistry does this. But there is so much more that is possible. Community engagement, public health policy, volunteering and health advocacy are all areas that can make a wider impact. And Dr Mohit Tolani does them all. Mohit and I were lucky enough to meet at the Graduate of the Year Mini Residency in 2017. We were fresh out of University and ready to change the world. Interestingly, Mohit is well on his way. His education pathway and community involvement all demonstrates his dedication to the community and oral health outcomes at large. This is inspiring stuff for those who want to give back.

As a dentist, you can’t be everything for everyone. Most of us learn this the hard way. On this podcast, Dr Alistair Graham shares with us the value he gained from narrowing his career path and skill set in dentistry. Determining the kind of dentist he wanted to be allowed him to focus his efforts and concentrate his skill development in the areas of dentistry that were right for him. Today, he and his team have absolute clarity on the kind of patient they want to attract to their clinic and as a result, they only perform the kind of dentistry they love. This is by design. He explores the decision making process that every dentist has to go through to gain focus in their own career and determine the path that’s right for them.
