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
Moving interstate is always a daunting experience and to do that as a new-grad about to start full time work can be a lot.
In this episode, Dr Phillip Nguyen shares his experience moving for uni and then again for work. We talk about how he planned it out and how he balances his hobbies, fitness and social life along with dentistry, and how he’s built his support network all up from scratch.
As someone who is about to graduate and potentially moving interstate, this is a really reassuring conversation. And I hope for anyone in the same boat, this chat gives you some guidance and motivation as well!
