It's not always your day

By Dr Michael Melkers on 29/10/2020 12:03:57 PM

There is an uncomfortable truth that few like to admit or at least do so out loud.

We are not always at our best. There are times that, as much as we try, we cannot achieve the results that we had hoped for - the results that we know are normally well within our skill set.

If you have not been there, I certainly have, and it is not a comfortable place.

Don’t Eat Our Young

By Dr. Lincoln Harris on 22/08/2016 4:21:21 PM

Recently, I gave a talk to the Adelaide Dental students. As always, I was impressed by their general level of enthusiasm and desire to do great dentistry.

Dental Students will graduate into a world with more opportunities than I can even imagine.

They will also launch out into a profession that has never been more snarky about each other and with a regulator who, with the best of intentions, has implemented KGB-like "mandatory reporting".
