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 Dr Cigdem Kipel

Whether you’re an owner or associate, introducing implant dentistry into your practice isn’t a small task. From stocking up on componentry to training your DA’s to figuring out costs and consent forms – there are multiple factors that need to be considered. 

Dr Namita Gupta, experienced implant dentist, education and multi-practice owner breaks it down for us. We discuss everything from how to start and maintain your implant education, how to access crucial mentorship, how to train up staff and how to work out the business and administrative aspect of implant dentistry.
