Best podcasts for dental students

With thousands of informative and entertaining podcasts available on different streaming services, listening to podcasts has become a normal part of many people’s everyday schedules. Podcasts are free to listen to and can be listened to anywhere — on the drive home, on a bike ride, or while cooking and cleaning. Many of them feel more like conversations than traditional news stories and are perfect for busy people on the go such as dental students.

In honor of International Podcast Day, here are some podcast suggestions for dental students:

  • The Life and Dentistry Podcast: Hear about life as a dental student and from dentists who discuss overcoming personal struggles and the development of their careers.
  • Student Entrepreneurs in Dentistry Podcast: This podcast is great for aspiring dental practice owners and dental entrepreneurs looking to learn about the foundational principles, concepts and strategies of business in dentistry.
  • The Dentist Money Show: An entertaining podcast that also offers straightforward advice about investing, retirement planning, tax reduction, insurance, debt management and personal finance.

  • Transition Talk Podcast: National Dental Placements started this podcast to provide guidance, tips and real-life scenarios (good and bad) to encourage and help those navigating the path to ownership.

    This is my favorite podcast that I recommend to my friends in dental school and for pre-dents, they’re from UNC Chapel Hill’s dental school! They cover several clinical topics as well as managing finances, big names in different fields of dentistry, and they have a series of shows for pre-dental students too. They also have a nice reading list and playlists organized for dental students and pre-dents.
