The course was an eye-opener for me, as it was held in a real clinical environment. I really loved the way the course was held, enthusiasm from the speakers and energetic staff. Dr Hamid and his sons were all about sharing knowledge about digital dentistry and encouraging the participants of the course.

I recommend this course to everyone who is looking to up-skill their day to day practice and learn CAD/CAM.

The course was brilliant for being able to get hands on experience in a wide variety of CAD/CAM systems. Whereas at a conference you are overwhelmed with beautiful stalls and sales pitches, the course allowed an undistorted view from highly skilled clinicians that use the software on a daily basis. The two days were well structured, informative and packed with practical skills. A must for anyone wanting to know more about digital dentistry!

Thank you Dr Al-Hassiny for organising a very professional and informative CAD/CAM course. I am grateful for your expert knowledge which you have passed on to make my digital workflow much more efficient from scanning to milling and maintenance. A very well structured course with the benefit of being individually coached throughout.

Unbiased and pragmatic approach to CAD/CAM dentistry designed for GDPs by GDPs.

Great niche, superb course and I am greatly looking forward to more courses. Excellent clinic also.

Amazing course, the best way to see multiple different digital scanning and milling systems in action. Can't recommend this course highly enough for dentists interested in starting digital dentistry.

Dr Hamid and the team are without a doubt leaders in the field of CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry. There is no better place to learn CAD/CAM in New Zealand than the Institute of Digital Dentistry. The dentists here use the technology daily in the practice and this shows in the course which was an excellent learning experience.

A Highly RECOMMENDED course unique to New Zealand. A 2-day hands-on comparison with three CAD/CAM systems. The Institute of Digital Dentistry presented by Hamid Al-Hassiny and his sons, Ahmad and Haidar all have great CHARACTER. COMMENDATION to a well balanced informative lecture base and hands-on touch. An ENDORSEMENT to an unbiased, peer to peer family approach. Digital Scan, Design, Mill in one appointment is the future, so DO NOT get left behind. I know which one would be my preferred system.

There are no courses in NZ that understand and embrace the future of dentistry quite like Dr Hamid and his staff at iDD. Nothing like a hands on course where you can scan, design, mill and even glaze your own CAD/CAM restorations using three different systems! Dr Hamid spares nothing in order to achieve the greatest results in dentistry and it is evident in both the equipment and the knowledge he has acquired in his practicing career. He holds nothing back and I feel like I have come out of the course not only confident that I would be able to do this in the mouth but also a better clinician. 5/5 would recommend

This is a course I can recommend to any dentist wanting to know how and where do I start with CADCAM. They have a selection of the main and current sought after scanners, design packages and mills. All are discussed without bias. I know the Journey of CADCAM continues to develop and evolve and I know these people will be right there beside it!
