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

If the mission statement of Dental Head Start is to help dental students become great dentists then I really am the guinea pig for it. In this episode, we are joined by David Keir who founded DHS to talk about his advice for me as a soon-to-be fully fledged dentist.

In this episode, we talk about finding your feet in that first year out, the effect of the practice you work at and the boss you work under. How CPD is crucial but also not everything and how there are so many other resources we can tap into to upskill. 

For all my fellow graduating classmates, this is such an exciting time for us! Congratulations for making it this far, and let’s get it! The world is ours to make. 

Dr David Keir

David spent over 13 years dental assisting before graduating from The University of Sydney. These years were formative and really gave David that head start in his career. Thus, in 2018, the Dental Head Start podcast was born with the hopes of sharing the lessons David had been lucky to learn along the way, and to help students and new graduates transition from textbooks into clinical practice.  

Alongside DHS, David is also the co-founder of CPD Junkie – Australia’s largest CPD directory. Check out https://www.cpdjunkie.com.au to stay in the loop with the latest and greatest CPD courses, deals & discounts.
