The promise of pain-free dentistry
This highly unusual article by Tony Gedge challenges your existing beliefs and self-imposed perceptions. Forcing you to retool, reinvent, and refocus your dentistry to achieve and exceed your resolutions in a proven, practical, systematic and sustainable way.

It’s thought provoking, off the wall and mind blowing all in one.
