Event Reviews

"I am very impressed with the teeth models used to mimic real life situations. Working on the models help with the understanding of how difficult a surgical extraction can be and the complications that may arise. Dr Lynham and Dr Hsu were very approachable and helped with managing difficult surgical extractions and explained in great detail on management of risks and complications. The supporting staff were amazing, always ensuring that we had enough equipment to use and perform the surgeries on the models. Overall it is a great course and worth attending to attain the next level of surgical skills in a dental practice."
