Session Reviews:

"Great course that provided an understanding of the physics of lasers and hands on demonstration." Tracy H., RDH

"Most thorough presentation and ‘hands-on’ course we’ve ever had. Thanks again." Appleday Dental Practice, Ontario.

"I would like to thank you for coming to our office and completing the training with us. You were very thorough and explained everything in detail which was very beneficial for our team. The fact that you spent extra time with us and allowed us to have the hands on experience through the training session was once again very beneficial. We are more comfortable and confident having gained the practice through our training session and as a result it will help the whole team seamlessly integrate the laser into our practice."
