For several years now, podcasts have been steadily gaining in popularity. There are a number of podcasts for every conceivable subject area. The first podcast by a dentist, “Saure Zähne” (Acid Teeth), was launched in 2016. Since then, more and more dentists have stepped up to the microphone. Whether you are just curious, a beginner, or already an established dentist: there is a podcast for everyone. For this article, we have selected seven podcasts about dentistry.
Young dentist Eva created Dentalstarter Podcast to share her own experiences and those of her colleagues on their way into the profession. She originally studied media and communications and now talks about the ups and downs of becoming a dentist. With interesting guests and exciting talks, you will get a somewhat different insight into the world of dentistry. Each episode lasts about 40 minutes.
“Der Praxiserfolg Podcast für Zahnärzte” (The Practice Success Podcast for Dentists)
Sven Walla has been a coach and consultant for dentists for more than 14 years. He focuses on strategy, marketing, and revenue growth for dental practices. In addition to these topics, Walla also discusses successful leadership, management, and communication in his podcast. His 10-minute episodes are especially interesting for dentists who want to be even more successful.
For those about to establish a dental practice, we recommend the podcast by Jörg Schröder: Dental Startup. Since 2009, he has also been holding the course “Fit für die Existenzgründung” (Fit for Starting a Business) in Berlin for aspiring self-employed dentists.
