Dental Head Start was created to give students and graduates an insider look at dentistry with tips and tricks they don’t teach you at dental school.
They certainly don’t teach us business at dental school!
Yet for some of us, it’s been engrained since day 1. In this podcast we have the pleasure of speaking with Dr Paul Jay Hwin, a young multiple practice owner who is kicking some serious goals in the shadows.
A lot of time on the DHS podcast is with well known, successful dentistry educators. Dental celebs if there is such a thing. Yet this podcast and other success stories of widely successful dentists who achieve it without the limelight are genuinely inspiring to me.
Packed with advice for grads and a practice ownership spin, I really think you’ll enjoy this one with Dr Paul Jay Hwin.
Find him on instagram @dr_pjh and at Sapphire Dentistry.
