Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.

It’s your weekly mentoring session.

You could say early stage dentists are used to long apointments. After all, we started with 3hr marathons at university.

But a 3+ hr appointment in private practice doing difficult dentistry on often anxious patients is a whole new ball game. The focus and risk of letting standards slip is high and this is no easy task.

Dr Michael Frazis shares a recent case and some tips to maintain your focus and achieve high level outcomes in long appointments. It can be as much about what you don’t do, as what you do..
