8:30am - Registration


From the garage to the $20m turn-over dental company - the Triodent journey – Dr Simon McDonald will talk about his time back in 1983 when he developed the original Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) that was adopted by the WHO and introduced worldwide as a cost-effective method to treat dental caries in developing countries. Then the Triodent story. The original idea, the 180 prototypes and how he raised $250K of capital and nearly lost it all. Denitsts will learn the valuable lesson of entrepreneurship in this changing environment.
