It is logical to say that in any occupation, trade or profession, there is no better teacher than experience itself. Forty-two years of dentistry has taught me a lot over the years. Those who have mentored me over the years have also blessed me with their own experiences. I feel fortunate to be able to pass this experience on to Dr. Chan who is open to new knowledge and treatment techniques. I am also fortunate to be able to pass on these years of knowledge to my son, Dominic, who is in the early stages of his own dental education.”
