From Student to Professional

An Interview with Dr. Ruchi Sahota

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Better understand the transition from student to dental professional
  • Learn some steps, tips, and “best practices” that current students can take to help them with testing and with the transition to post-graduate work

Dr. Ruchi Sahota is a 2004 graduate of the Dugoni School of Dentistry at the University of the Pacific. She currently works in private practice in Fremont, California and is an instructor at her alma mater.  Dr. Sahota is also a consultant at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto and the only general dentist on staff at the Washington Hospital in Fremont.

An active member of the American Dental Association and California Dental Association, Dr. Sahota joined THE NEXT DDS to speak about her transition from dental student to dental professional, and to provide some guidance on key milestones that affect students after graduation. Topics covered in this podcast range from Dr. Sahota’s personal transition into a practice residency, work with the ADA, helpful test-taking resources and preparation tactics, debt management strategies, and a host of other subjects related to the transition from student to professional dentist.
