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.

Getting direct anterior composites looking consistently stunning and natural is far from easy.

There is so much thought, planning, artistry and attention to detail happening in the background to ultimately create a breathtaking smile transformation.

Dr Karim Habib is one of the most young talented dentists in this arena. Photos of his anterior work will leave most dentists in awe.

In this podcast, Dr Karim Habib details how he produces such aesthetically superior results and shares with us his exact protocols around smile design, bonding, layering and polishing.


Dr Karim Habib

Karim moved to Australia from Toronto, Canada in 2006 and has since then called Sydney home.  After graduating with honours from the University of Sydney, he completed numerous continuing education programs in Orthodontics, Implantology and dental aesthetics thus enabling him to provide comprehensive care to his patients.  His true passion lies in the “Art of Dentistry”, always striving to deliver treatment that is not only functional, but also beautiful.  He has a special interest in carrying out minimally invasive aesthetic transformations with direct composite resin and veneers.  Karim is the Principal Dentist at Dental Square, a private practice in Sydney with a focus on dental aesthetics and smile design.
