Welcome to the New Grad Focus Series by Dental Head Start. Join us across a limited series of episodes as we take a deep dive into the journey of a new grad, covering various topics from multiple different angles.
Hosted by Dr Phillip Nguyen
The transition from being a student to a fully qualified dentist is one of the biggest periods of change we go through and it’s something that isn’t taught at all at university.
In this episode, Dr Margaret Tran joins us to go through all the essential things you will need to have organised before you start your first day of work. Not only do we go through the specific requirements of each license and number, but also the nuances of each application and how to minimise the delay in receiving each which will ultimately allow you to begin work sooner!
This episode is a must to listen to as it will make the transition to working so much easier, smoother and stress-free.
