We’re chairside with two specialty trainees. We’re asking if there’s a better time to do it? How difficult is it to apply? How competitive is it? And can you take on other challenges at the same time? We cover academic research, starting a family and what do you really need to know before you take the leap into specialty training.  Join us for a frank and open conversation about this much desired pathway in dentistry.    Guests  Khadeeja Sayeed BDS, Manchester 2015 Payal Sharma-Birch BDS, London 2008 https://diamonddentalgroup.uk/   H ..read more
