Back from Poznan with some words of advice

On Saturday I was in Poznan, Poland, for the second time to give a lecture to a very large number of young dentists and students. It’s always wonderful when I get to speak to the younger generations of dentists! Rather than show just advanced surgical procedures, I also like to give them motivational advice and discuss the philosophical aspects to the business of dentistry.
