My life motto? Keep it simple!

My life motto? Keep it simple!

When I was a kid in South Africa I was a boy scout. We were taught a lot of cool things, like tying knots, first aid, making a responsible fire, but, most importantly the greatest lesson of all, to leave things better than we found them.

When doing dentistry it’s important to keep this philosophy in mind. You see, I believe that, “Ethics is the new Aesthetics”.

There are so many new companies and dentists with new trends, trying to create a name for themselves, pushing the boundaries of reason so many times. I think that the amazing growth in technology and services that dentists and laboratories can provide should never overcome the basic foundations of what we are really supposed to be doing, and that’s helping people smile and be healthy.

Keep it simple, don’t push the ethical boundaries to make a quick profit.
