We want to share our secrets of running a successful dental practice so that you too can have fun, travel and enjoy Life!

About me and John

We are Nupur and John Hackwood. Together, we bought an old one-chair dental practice in 2005, renovated it, and built it up to a modern 4-chair practice over a 5 year period. 

With a lot of energy, passion, fears, joy, tears, laughter, fun and excitement we learnt the ins and outs of running a successful dental practice together! What a ride!
