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 Haydyn Bathurst
In today’s episode is an interview with the current president of the Australian Dental Student Association Sanika Shorey. We talk about what to expect out of your first year! Really because all dental schools are different we’re more focusing on your overall first half of dental school and what things you should expect and prepare for. This is an episode that will equip you well, and if you have any dental student in mind that you think this could be targeted for please feel free to share this with them.
Sanika Shorey is the current President of the Australian Dental Students Association, and an enthusiastic member of the wider dental fraternity. Currently in her penultimate year of Dentistry, she strives to balance all her studies and clinical placements along with a never-ending list of hobbies.
