it has ticked every check box, of what I'm wanting to learn.

"to have this specific field as part of the service I can offer to my patients and absolutely making myself as a better dentist with more knowledge about how to restore them, safely and precisely ...

... after attending these two days of courses, he opened a whole new door for me to know how actually we should learn more into this to be able to offer this service to my patients."

I LIKE THE STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE. I LIKE THE PRACTICAL SIDE AS WELL, AND HE'S BEEN AWESOME.

"The placements and the sequence of how to do the work? Also the criteria in terms of patient selection, the anatomical structures you need to be looking for here, how to do those spots"

THE WAY HE IS EXPLAINING EVERYTHING, IT IS SIMPLE AND VERY PRACTICAL, SO THAT'S WHAT I LIKE.

"The patients are, after extractions, they do not want bridges or the removable dentures anymore, they are more into that we want some permanent fix and they also wanted aesthetics. I think everything works out good with implants. So that actually led me to the implant course."
