Growth & Gamification At The Dentist

Growth & Gamification At The Dentist

I recently went to the dentist for a chipped tooth, it started when we were in the middle of lockdown and unsurprisingly it is actually difficult to book a dentist appointment.  The dentist was very well prepared for everything that was happening.

One of my motto’s is always be marketing (no marketing = no-one will know you or remember you), always be auditing (if you do not know what you need to optimise and where you need to improve you are losing).
