Try to keep up as we trek through Tony’s incredible journey through many different career paths before he finally found the cap that fits. Tony is happy with his title of “ROI marketing strategist, practice building and turnaround mentor” and owner and founder of podcast “Mpod Marketing- Pirates of Dentistry”.
Tony started out developing Leed’s first events’ magazine at age 17, DJ’ing and setting up a music factory which became the third most popular club at the time, touring on the Ministry of Sound tour and dealing with real life gangsters threatening his very life. He owned multiple night clubs, bars and restaurants with his wife Cally before selling out, realizing they couldn’t continue the party lifestyle with two newborn twins!
After moving to Spain with his wife and attempting an early retirement in his early 30’s, Tony realised there were only so many Piña coladas they could sip around their hotel pool before boredom truly kicked in. He then took his many lessons he learnt along the way from his early career and started mentoring entrepreneurs in many different industries. The field of dentistry truly stood out for him and he wanted to bring personality and sense back into such a highly regimented industry.

- Why personal development courses are vital for the success of dentists within the industry.

- Why you will most likely burn out if you’re in dentistry just for profits.
