Q&A with International Dentist & Entrepreneur, Dr. Veronica Stahl
Dr. Veronica Stahl is an international expert and leader in the dental industry. She has delivered care and led teams of medical organizations that deliver optimum care for patients. Her expertise in the fields of implantology, endodontics, and restorative dentistry are pivotal in Cannabite LifeLong's research and the applications of medical Cannabis in dentistry, which enable her and her team to drive a high impact organization of science-backed treatments.
With advanced studies in dentistry and more than 23 years of dental experience, Dr. Stahl currently works in Belgium and brings a wealth of knowledge and research on Cannabis to the startup Cannabite LifeLong from her time spent at Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. She also spent 14 years working in Israel, which has become one of today’s fastest-growing places for technology startups.
She currently practices dentistry at Euro Dental in Belgium, the Flander region Antwerpen, and is licensed as a dental practitioner in the U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands, and Israel.
What is your background?
I am honored and proud to be born into my family - to two immigrant Jewish parents who tried to escape from the old communist Romanian government by emigrating to Israel where they could give me a better future.
I am also very grateful that my parents didn’t have much financial security to support me because I learned how to be independent. While there was some financial hardship, they encouraged me to follow my dreams of becoming a dentist. It wasn’t an easy road but I am grateful to learn something new everyday. The ability to treat people and alleviate their pain is my passion.
My entrepreneurial life mainly started in 2009 in the EU. It was extremely difficult as a woman who wasn't in business school but I used every free moment to study and learn about every aspect of business. As a result of my studies, I opened several dental offices and started the research and development for the startup Cannabite LifeLong.
What is Cannabite LifeLong?
Cannabite LifeLong is one of the first startups to research and develop parts of the Cannabis plant in the dental industry. Although this new application is still in its early stages, it's designed to help relieve oral pain and heal dental diseases.
We recently registered the company in the United States but will keep our research and development center in Belgium.
What is your favorite book?
I love reading and listening to Bob Proctor. I also love to read the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill.
What do you see as the largest marketing trends for 2018?
The biggest marketing trends for 2018, in my opinion, are online marketing combined with augmented reality. Blockchain will also continue to gain popularity despite its challenges. IoT (Internet of Things) will continue to grow as well.
Cannabis will be legalized in more States and will be a huge market for our expansion, while the bio-industry will be one of the best investments. Additionally, I believe logistics businesses will be a booming market.
