In 2006, Mark was invited to work with Dr Anders Blomberg, who runs the North Queensland Prosthodontic Practice in Townsville. He has spent some time each month working with Dr Blomberg and learning advanced restorative techniques.

Mark is an active member of the Australian Dental Association, a past President of the Vardiman Dental Study Association and regularly attends courses to stay abreast with current trends, materials and techniques.
