About this Episode

We love talking to dentist on the podcast. We also love talking to people from different countries. This week we double down on both as we chat with Dr. Ahmad Al-Hassiny who comes to us all the way from New Zealand. Dr. Ahmad grew up with dentist parents that both owned their own practices. After graduating, he ended up at his father’s practice where he was introduced to digital dentistry. He attended a study club where a seller of a IOS system talked about how good it was when he knew it wasn’t. That drove him to start reviewing IOS systems. The non-biased reviews grew in popularity and the Institute of Digital Dentistry was born. Now iDD covers a ton of topics covering all aspects of digital dentistry with multiple instructors. We cover all things digital, the importance of still having a lab, dentistry in New Zealand, and his new podcast Digital Dentistry Decoded with iDD.
