What Dentists are saying

What do our past course attendees think of our training?

The course was great. It’s been good to try out the new scanners to see what the new mills can do. The team is really enthusiastic, and I’d certainly recommend this course to anyone who would like to see what you can do with CAD/CAM dentistry.

Dr Derek Grey
General Dentist - NZ

It’s been so beneficial. Not only do you get to learn how to do everything, but you get exposure to all the different systems. I’ve learnt that I could do so much more. I had only been doing single crown restorations. I was scared to do anything else, just because of time pressure. But iDD has given me the confidence I need to do so much more.

Dr Shirlyn Sutedia
General Dentist - AUS

I do definitely recommend these courses. It gives you a really good summary of all the CAD/CAM systems including TRIOS and CEREC, different types of mills and materials, so you get a good overview that’s unbiased.

Dr Paul Bui
General Dentist - AUS

This course offers an unbiased overview of many different systems. If you want to get into CAD/CAM and you don’t know where to start, this is the place.
