Comments from previous course participants:

"This course was amazing and the instructors made me comfortable within the first 5 minutes of the course.   The environment was relaxed and fun!"

"I came in worried I would not get all the information needed because I came from a different state and I was very partial to my school.  I enjoyed this course and the instructors very much!  I look forward to more CE courses available with them."

"Fun and great food!"

"I really appreciated the quality "one on one" time that was given during the clinic portion. That is when everything we had studied came together."

"I am a seasoned hygienist and I would highly recommend this course to all hygienists. It was absolutely empowering!"

"I was forced (to attend the) program, and was not the least bit excited... In the clinic on the first day I was crying and truly wanted to leave.  After the first injections that day I loved it! ...Thank you to my doctor...and thank you to the staff here.  I've been completely changed and rather than feeling defeated, I now feel empowered!"
