Our Team – Dedicated to learning and sharing knowledge
The Enamel Clinic team is made up of dental professionals who are leaders in their fields of expertise – creating an international powerhouse within the dental industry.
At our clinic, we have created a culture that not only encourages continuous learning, but also sharing of knowledge. All our doctors are involved in sharing their expertise and experiences on various platforms; enhancing the skills of fellow and future clinicians.
Our clinicians lecture for numerous reputable dental companies, establish study groups for like-minded dental professionals and facilitate comprehensive courses and training sessions. These aim to provide a learning destination for both newly qualified clinicians, as well as those who wish to keep abreast of new developments and experiences in the industry.
Training for these lectures often takes them to international destinations; attending conferences and sharing ideas with colleagues on a global scale, and returning with a wealth of knowledge to share with their team.
They consider themselves life-long learners; and aim to encourage others to self-challenge and test professional boundaries. They are constantly pushing themselves to do more and better – appreciating the knowledge that the extensive research, hours of preparation and development of creative ways of delivering content have benefitted others as well as themselves.
Sharing concepts, knowledge and ideas allows others to learn from their experiences. It creates a system which they’d like to see benefiting the industry as a whole.
