Testimonials – don’t just take our word for it – here are some comments from our class of 2021

  • Do not hesitate! It is a brilliant course! I have done a few implant courses in the past but the strong academic aspect forces you you to work a bit more and learn the art of implantology properly. The knowledge I have gained will help me for the rest of my career!
  • Go for it. Great course, great teachers. By the end of the course will have confidence and knowledge to start placing implants safely.
  • Do not hesitate to join this course. You will not regret it. This course is absolutely incredible, Dr Fadi, Alan and Annemarie have been absolutely amazing. They are always on hand to help and are so approachable, I never felt in the dark.
  • After completing the course you understand what a well thought-out, professional and organised processes they have put together. Even though the struggles of covid they are always one step ahead. I feel so confident in the knowledge I have gained from Dr Fadi and the visiting professors, they provide you with everything you need to succeed.
  • The certificate in implantology by Dr Fadi and the team is second to none. You need to do this course.
  • The separate modules enabled me to consolidate the new information before we moved to the next level. The blended learning was most certainly beneficial as we were able to refer back to the knowledge and information all the time.
  • I have an implant specialist but now I will start placing implants again but more importantly I have the knowledge and the skills to treatment plan and prepare properly without worrying about errors. My confidence is much better when planning implant treatment.
  • The course was run very professionally with excellent communication from Ann-Marie and the team. The teachers were clearly interested in all the candidates and their implant journey. Has a friendly but educationally robust mix to bring out the best in the candidates.
  • Thank you to Fadi, Alan, Annemarie and all the professors. Cant thank you all enough for a great course. No regrets doing the course. Thank you for everything. I understand it was difficult during covid too. Cannot fault the course.
  • Dr Fadi Barrak is an excellent teacher, always very helpful and always makes sure you have a clear understanding before moving on to the next topic.
