Mixing it up

Fancy a portfolio career? What does it take to get the balance right? We ask three dentists who have each taken their passion for dentistry and developed an outlet outside of their clinical roles. From charitable work to dental education to committee involvement, we’re asking how these opportunities come about and how to manage having multiple work commitments.  

Join us for an insightful conversation about what it’s like to mix it up with a portfolio career.    



Ian Wilson BDS 1987, Co-founder of Bridge2Aid

Hannah Woolnough BDS 2006, Chair of Suffolk’s Local Dental Committee and Chair of the BDA’s English Council.
