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.

Cost can be a major consideration in Dentistry. However ensuring that are we not only considering the financial costs to our patients, but also the biological costs?

This week on the podcast we are chatting again with Dr Bharat Agrawal and we are discussing a topic that he is extremely passionate about – using pre-restorative alignment to achieve conservative aesthetic outcomes. This episode will take you from only seeing ortho only as something to fix the bite, or for crowded to teeth, to starting to see its applications and benefits in almost all of your restorative patients.

Bharat fills us in on the paradigm shift from being purely a cosmetic dentist to a conservative aesthetic dentist with the patients best interest in mind. He shares with us one of his favourite tools to achieve this through orthodontics, as well some tips to help us better communicate this to our patients.

Key Tips to Takeaway for Tomorrow:
