 He also completed an MBA degree in 2007 from Rushmore University in the US.

In 2008 Dr Penn completed a new accreditation course to teach general dentists how to integrate an alignment into aesthetic dentistry using  Invisalign . His introduction of a "green dentistry" philosophy and "enamel neutral edict", which protects tooth structure where possible, represents a significant paradigm shift in aesthetic dentistry.
