" I utilized The New Dentist Coach Dr. Darwin during my application cycle for Orthodontics Residency and am beyond grateful I did. He helped me strategize an effective plan to refine my skills with networking, interviewing and execution to achieve the end result of a MATCH. Many people have mentioned to me that they have watched my video on DrDarwin's YouTube channel and how the tips have allowed them to improve in areas as well; so I know it was worth it! Overall, the resources available through New dentist coach website, podcast, and live videos are not only informative but help close the gap of the unknown opportunities available for new dentists as well as experienced professionals within the field. It's like an avenue of limitless opportunities and possibilities. Dr. Hayes provides a very diverse platform that gives knowledge related to residencies, finances, advocacy, career path options and networking; all of which are beneficial to those who are currently in the profession and an early insight to those who have interest joining the wonderful profession of dentistry.
