"The postgraduate program in esthetic dentistry provided my practice with another level of excellence. It approaches dentistry from all aspects and provides knowledge, technical skill and most of all fellowship." (Kenneth Hamin, D.D.S., Winnipeg, Manitoba)
"The Level II postgraduate esthetic dental course was the best continuing dental education hands-on course that I have ever experienced. Interaction between faculty and students was provided with maximal learning in a warm and supportive environment. The faculty/student ratio was ideal." (Michael Spencer, D.D.S., St. Louis Park, Minnesota)
The clinical experience was extremely beneficial to me. I was able to use new materials and pick the mentors' brains for techniques. I also had the luxury of time to devote to the procedure. It forces me out of my comfort zone and that is how I learn. I look forward to taking more courses in the future. Thank you.
All of the instructors were very approachable and helpful as well as knowledgeable in the techniques they taught. The fellowship was an added bonus, as was being present while great minds "discussed".
A great experience overall and very educational. Thanks to all the instructors and staff.
I'm extremely happy that I took this program. Very well spent time and investment.
Learning dentistry from presentations, mistakes and successes was priceless! Thanks for everything! I learned so much! I'm already excited for Level III. (Anna Kramer Miller, D.D.S., Dubuque, Iowa)
