Top two tips that aid better dentistry: Martina Hodgson

martina hodgesonMartina Hodgson presents two top tips that aid better dentistry.

Tip one: spend at least a small part of everyday out of your comfort zone. It is an exciting place to be and where the real magic happens. Do this and you will achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Tip two: invest in your team. Not just money, but more importantly, time. Nothing is more rewarding to me than being able to support and grow my team, and the pandemic proved to me that if you have their backs they will have yours. Not only that but it is the sure-fire way to see your business prosper.

Two products I cannot live without:

My Itero scanner

Infact I have three Iteros! My working life changed the minute I got one.

I do a lot of Invisalign and it saves me so much time and stress! It also converts patients to treatment, educates them and helps me monitor their oral health. It’s a fantastic restorative scanner too.

My Canon DSLR camera

I had to think long and hard about my second choice as I have so many possible contenders. However, being able to take good quality photographs of your work is so important these days.

My TCOs and I use the photos I take all the time – for records, patient education, social media and teaching. So to have a bank of great photographs to hand is really important to me.
