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.
How you set up your Aligner software dictates how smooth your aligner treatment goes. Mistakes at this stage prolong treatment and can lead to unhappy patients and unhappy dentists!
Dr John Hagiliassis from AORTA Dental Education shares his thoughts on what to focus on and how to nail your software setup.
