“For me getting a good job, in a good practice, was a big thing. As I’m sure it applies to every other profession. You can get a job, but it is a really good job where you’re fulfilled and making a difference?”
- Aodhan Docherty, The Moment HQ podcast
Dr Aodhan Dockerty. He is a dentist who practices at About Smiles Dental in Sydney's Northshore and Eastern Suburbs. Having graduated from The University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Medical Science and Graduate Degree in Dentistry with Honours. Aodhan enjoys the challenges associated with rejuvenating aged, damaged and worn smiles.
However, it wasn’t all easy for him to get to where he is today, and what I loved about his Life Changing Moment, was that it was something that many of us experience: juggling study and work to achieve his dream.
