Taking on the challenge of starting a podcast and delving into a world that you know nothing about is daunting. Putting yourself out there in a close knit community is a brave thing to do, and David has done it flawlessly.
David holds an engineering degree, been a dental assistant for a millennia, played semi-pro poker and can now add a successful career as a podcast founder to the mix. There’s not much David can’t do.
Erica and Graeme sit down with David as they explore David’s life, talk about what Dental Headstart means to them, the future of DHS, and David’s parting wisdom have worked for 5 years and is now leading into a new, fun life adventure.
