Today I just woke up in beautiful Opatija, on the West Coast of Croatia. It is absolutely stunning! It’s my second time here and I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I was here last.
I was very gracefully invited back by the representatives of an implant company here in Croatia, based on the success of my lecture given last year on “No Half Smiles”. Today I’ll be speaking to over 300 people, and most of them have already seen me lecture, so they’ll be expecting something new. The pressure is on!
Anyway, I just came back from a long trip from Philadelphia that was quite successful, so I’m feeling pretty good about life.
The lecture I’m going to give today is “Life Changing Dentistry” and I’m going to talk a little bit about the choices we make as a Dentist and how those choices affect our patients’ happiness and also, at the end of the day, our own happiness. Because we’re all focusing on success, the big question is: “What truly is success?”. For me, it’s being invited back to one of the most beautiful parts of the world, and I truly do suggest that everybody come and visit this beautiful corner of the world, here in Croatia.
Also, last night I had dinner with Professor Kwang Bum Park, the mentor behind the implant system that I use, and I had the opportunity to meet again some friends from Romania and from Lithuania. These meetings are always great to catch up with good friends and to discuss science and politics and global affairs. It’s a great way to stay up-to-date as well!
