Dr Aarushi Joshi

The best thing about this course is the hands-on components where you get to do suturing on pigs heads and extractions on a real patient. Because the student cohorts are small, it really enables you to get more one-on-one attention with the tutors, pick up tips and tricks, and identify small errors that you might be making and correct them straight away

Dr Diluni Perera

The experience definitely made me really confident to get started on the simpler cases of the implants and I feel confident to do it in a safe, predictable way.

Dr Haya Awni

Theory component was very comprehensive, and now the practical component is so good because it is a small group of people. It’s such a supportive, nice tight-knit learning environment. I feel comfortable taking these things that I’ve learnt and implementing them in my practice because I’ve done it before now, and with the guidance of a specialist. I feel very comfortable asking questions and making sure that I fully understand the content being taught… that is massive… you can’t put a price on that
