Pearls of wisdom – what I wish I knew

“8 years ago, I finished dental school as a fresh-faced 20 something. Since then I’ve learned many lessons through trial and error. I was lucky to avoid some common pitfalls with the welcome advice of mentors along the way. I only wish I could turn back time and share these lessons with the younger me.”

Join Dr Amanda Phoon Nguyen, final year Oral Medicine Registrar, as she gives insight into the common clinical and personal pitfalls facing young practitioners.

Designed for dental practitioners in the early stage of their careers, this live one-hour webinar will feature insights and advice collected from experienced practitioners, to help you learn from their mistakes and triumphs.

With an opportunity for real time questions and answers during the broadcast, this is the ideal way to have the expertise of Dental Protection brought directly to you.

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward. Vernon Law

  • Identify common clinical and personal pitfalls facing young practitioners
  • Learn from the past experiences of established practitioners
