Welcome to the Dentistry on Purpose Podcast.

In this episode Mark & Justin talk with Anshu Sood.

"My clinical purpose is to ensure that each and every one of our clients is thrilled with their treatment and their new smile.  Orthodontics is so much more than straight teeth - the difference we see in our patients, their confidence, their self esteem is what drives us each day. Personally, my daily inspiration is to be better than I was yesterday." - Anshu Sood

Anshu qualified from the University of Sheffield in 1998, went on to vocational training in Nottinghamshire, and then worked as a junior doctor in oral and maxillofacial surgery at United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust.

Anshu then moved to London to work at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute and also Great Ormond Street. She ended up moving back to Sheffield to train as an orthodontist and qualified in 2006. Since then Anshu has been working in specialist practice.  Co-owner of two specialists practices, one a tender bid and one a private squat, she is well versed in the business of orthodontics.

Anshu is a Speaker for Invialign and Dental monitoring, being a keen user of dental technology and innovation.  She is also heavily involved with the British Orthodontic Society and has been since 2007 holding various posts on committees and now being on the Board of Trustees as Director of Clinical Practice. She has most recently been part of the Safemile campaign to educate patients on the risks of Direct to Consumer Orthodontics.

She always wanted to be a marine biologist and is an advanced PADI qualified scuba diver. Her aspiration remains to go diving with great white sharks. Just now, though, she enjoys yoga, reading, travelling and socialising.

This is another amazing episode with an inspiring leader in dentistry.
