He has taught undergraduate students as a clinical demonstrator in the endodontic department of Melbourne University. He has published several scientific papers in the international journals and lectured widely across international and national stages.

“Do the very best you can” is a motto that was instilled by his late father and has influenced him profoundly throughout his life. The name of the practice “Excellence In Endodontics” was based on this motto. He hopes to pass this family motto on to his children as well.
Seung Tae enjoys travelling, reading, music and nature walks with family and friends. He is married with two beautiful children.
