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.

Hosted by Erica Hwin

It’s easy to see the confidence and competence of senior dentists and to compare ourselves to them, and oftentimes it’s easy to forget that they were once students too. 

In this episode, we are joined by Dr Alice Whang to talk through the ups and downs of Dr Alice’s journey from a student to where she is now – a phenomenal clinician and a RIPE Global educator. This was a heartwarming chat where we discuss the trials and tribulations every new grad goes through.

If you haven’t already, you have to check out Dr Alice’s instagram @dralice.dentistry where she is always sharing simple clinical pro tips that can make a huge difference to how we practice. You’ll find her page full of tips on better rubber dam, using teflon, matrix selection and taking better intraoral scans.
