Patrick has been out of the office this week attending the 80th birthday convention of the Pierre Fauchard Academy in Denver, Colorado. Who are they and what do they do? The academy is an international honorary group of dentists who “recognise and grow leaders in the industry”.” Where did the name come from? Dr Fauchard wrote the first text book on dentistry! We hope Patrick had an insightful and stimulating trip. Looking forward to his reportage on the Presidential race!!
