Episode Run Time: 00:43:07
Today, I talk to Dr. Amir Tahmasebpour who is a popular dentist on Instagram. Originally from Canada, he came to Australia to pursue dentistry. He worked as an associate dentist in Sydney for 2 years where he really developed a passion for oral surgery. He recently moved back to Toronto and is getting ready to continue his practice there.

As a person who posts these kinds of content, you’re kind of subjecting yourself to a lot of judgment. You’re subjecting yourself to a lot of criticism. And… But I’m willing to accept it, you know? If someone’s going to criticize me and if they have a valid point, I want to hear it. I want to learn from it. And that here is how you’re going to grow as a clinician.
