Snapshot of Rhea

Dr Rhea Allsopp owns her own general practice clinic on the Gold Coast, Australia. She is fast gaining a reputation for the great work she is doing on her patients, from simple restorative work, crown and veneer preps, quadrant dentistry, to full arch cases. However, just 3 years ago Rhea was a newly fledged doctor who went to work feeling anxious and unsure about undertaking restorations in cases she had never encountered before.

Dr Lane Ochi - The Dentist, The Artist, The Man.

By Chantelle Anink on 02/10/2020 8:25:55 AM

There is a language to colour and we all have to learn it, says Dr Lane Ochi. I finished watching the incomparable lecture, Application of Colour Theory in Restorative Dentistry a cup of coffee ago. It plays for an hour, but it took me two with all my pauses and note taking. When you watch it, you will relate. It feel like I have learned an entire terms worth of colour education at a fancy art school who only employ warmly spoken world class educators who elucidate in  gorgeous buttery sentences like, We are not chasing perfection, we want believability; think of colour as occurring in a circle.
