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
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
Caliber is the word that I’m looking for. From the tutors to the pig’s head practicals, I found the course is incredibly well resourced
There’s been a lot of discussions and opportunities to ask questions. The clinical educators were incredibly helpful. This really put my mind at ease with regards to the challenges ahead this implant program. I have enjoyed the course thoroughly and definitely would recommend it to my colleagues
My implant restoration and surgery skills have improved a lot. I feel like I can provide a better clinical outcome for my patients after attending the program. I am really happy with the course and would recommend it to my peers.
The fact that it’s face-to-face, small class size really intrigued me in the first place, as I enjoyed learning hands-on practicals with proper guidance from the clinical educators.
Before ARIA course I would not know where to start my implant education
Previously I had attended other basic implant courses. Afterwards I was still hesitant about placing implants as I wasn’t confident. I couldn’t picture myself performing the procedure from start to finish.
But after attending the Master Implant Program, I feel like I’m confident enough to complete implant procedures by myself
Highlight of the course was the final module, where we got to actually place an implant on our own patients. It’s a really cool experience
The practical side was really fun and engaging, as we get to practice the surgery aspect of placing implants. It’s like a lab simulation before the live surgery module.
