"Pearse and Mark have a great range of skills which complement each other perfectly.  The programme was very much hands on, which I found both exciting and daunting.
This course has ignited a new area of interest for me.  I have more than accomplished my objectives and am now in a much better position to give definitive advice to patients.”
Dr Laura Jones, Laura Jones Dental, Ballymena

"Carrying out implant placement on my own patients during the course was hugely beneficial, with the guidance and supervision of both Pearse and Mark.   I was not just learning the theory; I had the opportunity to practise and grow in confidence, sure that I was doing the right thing."
Dr Nathalie Muller, Woodlawn Dental Clinic, Dublin

“The tremendous support throughout and after the course has been invaluable.  An ideal course for anyone looking to get started in implants.”
Dr Paul McKenna, Finaghy Dental Practice, Belfast
