#47 – Orthodontics and Business Wisdom with Geoff Hall

It never ceases to amaze me that some of the best and most successful Dentists in Australia really weren’t that passionate in the beginning. This description describes Dr Geoff Hall’s feelings towards general dentistsry, only to have his eyes opened and passion ignited with specialist Orthodontics training in the US.

Since the days of his training Dr Geoff Hall has created a thriving Orthodontics practice, become heavily involved in continuing education and aligner therapy and created OrthoEd, an orthodontic education company aimed at teaching a general dentist to provide exceptional orthodntics, regardless of previous experience.

From orthodontics to business, Geoff’s enthusiasm and energy is engaging. This was a fascinating conversation with a leader in the industry.

#10 – Dr Stephen Dudgeon is Positively Transforming Dentistry

Mentorship is the holy grail of your initial years after graduation. But it is hard to come by and cannot be expected in your job.

Dr Stephen Dudgeon and Dr Eli Burger saw this struggle and decided to help change it. In 2014 they introduced the Australian Dental Graduate of the Year Award and subsequently provided the Australian Dental Mini Residency to the runners up and winner of this award.

From first hand experience I know this is an excellent foundation for those lucky enough to be able to attend the course.

The planned chat with Stephen and Eli will have to wait, Eli was unwell however we were lucky enough to spend an hour with Stephen.
