Dr. Tony Liu, together with Dr. Chu Tan are the founders of Berwick Dental Studio in Melbourne. I’ve invited Tony today to talk about the hypergrowth of the practice since they formed it 2 years ago.

This hot-seat interview is full of pearls of wisdom on achieving and managing practice growth as well as taking advantage of opportunities. We talk about the challenges they faced, transitioning to a balanced life, bringing in associates to the practice and so much more. There’s so much to be learnt from this conversation and I can’t wait to share them with you.
