One-to-one mentorship

Learning is a very personal experience. We offer one-to-one mentoring to help you address the specific challenges you encounter in your practice. We do not have any pre-set models as mentoring will be tailored to your very own goals. As such, it can be a one-off mentorship where our lead trainer, Mr Roberto Sacco, supports you over a day or half-day at your dental practice or it can be a mentoring programme over a longer period of time.
