In association with
Beyond my expectations. It was great, a really good course. I have learned so much and feel so much more confident now with the surgery set up.
A huge thank you for such an amazing implant course. Since the course I have taken part in 2 implants which I have really enjoyed. Attending the course has helped me so much, it has helped my confidence. I went to the course knowing nothing and have come out feeling great.
I have been on other implant training courses but found this course to be very informative in a relaxed environment. I will recommend this course to my dental friends
The course exceeded my expectations, I learned a lot about preparing for implants and feel ready to assist during the procedure.
