From the Managing Director

Trevor Martin

April was a busy month of reflection for many with two events Easter and ANZAC Day falling during the month. I enjoy both occasions very much.  The Easter message of death and resurrection and the ANZAC message and the playing of the Last Post to signify the end of a day and the Rouse or Reveille to indicate the start of the next, I think are very relevant to how we should live our lives, with hope defined at Dictionary.com as“ the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best”.

When you are in the midst of war with death and injury next to you, over 37 million people died or wounded in WW1, 7 million of the deaths were civilian, more than the combined population of Australia and New Zealand today, the numbers are almost impossible to comprehend, hope, I imagine but do not know, must seem a long way away.

When I reflect on the messages of Easter and ANZAC day I am reassured that the challenges I face on a daily basis are quite insignificant in comparison and for that I am truly grateful.

I am also grateful to be involved in the business of dentistry helping dental professionals to provide the best possible care and to be involved at a time when Australians and New Zealanders have a continued increase in the availability of dental services, want to be educated in health, and continue to have the capacity to pay for service. There is a large market of more than 50% of the population who do not visit the dentist in the year which means a huge potential for growth of service provision. That’s my business Reveille. Thank you for choosing Gunz Dental in March and April we look forward to continuing to help you provide the best possible care in the coming days, months and years.
