I’m excited about this episode and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. We’ve got Dr Nauvneel Kashyap.

Dr Nauvneel Kashyap is a multiple practice owner, practice ownership consultant, dentist and professional poker player. Nauv has hired 30-40 new graduates in his time and has many insights into the struggles and successes of the early years of a dental career.

This wide ranging discussion had so much packed into it that i have made it a two part series. But don’t stress, the wait for part two is only a week.

Part 1 covers:

  • Nauv’s upbringing and pathway to dentistry
  • How Nauv learnt wisdom tooth surgery to such a high level and his advice if you want to do the same
  • Poker
    • How he got into poker
    • What being a professional poker player has taught him in business and dental practice 
    • How to control emotions in pressure situations 
    • Negotiating tips 
  • Tips for grads to avoid burnout
  • Most important first steps as a grad
  • Biggest weakness of new grads
  • Learn about how graduates are trained, paid and their expectations within his practices
