In this episode of The Savvy Dentist Podcast, Dr. Jesse Green is joined by Jerry Kennard from Evoke Projects. Evoke is an interior design, construction and project management firm with clients all over Australia.


Jerry is a highly focused and results driven Managing Director who leads through example and motivates the Evoke team to work to their full potential. He inspires his team to think outside the box when delivering creative and visionary office design and fit-out solutions to ensure that every client not only achieves their operational objectives but also increases the engagement, productivity and retention of their team. 


Jerry believes the physical environment is like the soil for every team to grow in, and ultimately the determinant of their success.


In this episode Jesse & Jerry discuss how to understand your desired result and your objectives when contemplating a dental practice fit-out? The end that you have in mind is only the beginning. 
Dental Practice designs are so much more than plans on paper: they are the future of your business.
