The end of a year and a decade. And the end of the first year of the Dental Head Start Podcast.

I hope you’ve got a ton from this because I sure have. We’ve had the opportunity to peer into the minds and origins of some of Australia’s best Dentists (and one particularly engaging ENT) and have gained so much wisdom. I genuinely want to thank all our our guests in 2019 who really allowed Dental Head Start to stand up and help dental students and graduates.

Every single episode has something of value hiding within it. I’d love to hear what you found most useful. But I do know what you all found most engaging and the most listened to episodes for 2019. Some of these had over a thousand listens!

And as the first episode for 2020 I want to say congratulations to the 2019 graduates and all the best if you’re starting your first job, starting your final year or commencing on further post graduate study. Make 2020 yours!
