Mr Szabolcs Hant
Master Dental Technician
Mr Szabolcs Hant began his studies in 1993 in Hungary.
In the beginning, to him, it was "just a simple occupation", but he soon realised this came to mean so much more. This simple occupation became his profession.
He believes that he owes an enormous amount to the great masters such as Klaus Mütherties, Oliver Brix, Aki Yoshida, Robert Zubák and many others, all of whom continue to inspire him.
The dominant point in his professional life, over the past 18 years, was when he began his own business, at this time he realised his own development would ultimately depend on him alone.
His aim is to present his knowledge and demonstrate how he uses it in particular cases.
