Share This Post

Show Summary:

In this episode, I am joined by Speaker’s Salon alum Dr. Parul Dua Makkar. I had the honor of mentoring Parul during her time inside the Speaker’s Salon, and I can’t wait for you to hear her incredible showcase talk that’s coming in Episode 597.

Parul is an award-winning General Dentist, Speaker, and Owner of PDM Family Dental. She has been a contributor to several Dental Journals and has been featured on podcasts, radio shows, and TV shows across the globe. She is also co-author of the book Life Interrupted: Dr. Dua’s Survival Guide.

Parul’s life took a different trajectory when she lost her only sibling, Dr. Manu Dua, to oral cancer.  Following his death, Parul devoted her time to educating doctors and patients about risk factors, prevention, and early detection and treatment of oral cancer.

In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • The grief of losing her brother and the process of turning his blog posts into a book
  • Why she chose to share her story of grief with others
  • Her experience of sharing her story at the Speaker’s Salon Showcase
  • How she knows there is still goodness in the world, even amongst grief
  • Her current favorites: Books: anything by Dan Brown, Speaker: Minal Sampat, and Podcast: Crime Junkie
