  • Great Course Got a lot out of the 4 days and want to be placed on waiting list for any future cadaver programs.
  • What a great course exciting and well managed - great speakers
  • Best course I have ever been on. Would highly recommend it to anyone who is doing or considering doing advanced implant surgery and GBR
  • Fantastic course! Hands on workshop immediately after lecture.. commendable as reinforces theory
  • Thank you so much for such an informative organized experience
  • The course was great and I really enjoyed every day of the 4 days
  • Thank you for an amazing course and for managing to get together a group of people who are not only leaders in the field of implant dentistry but are also down to earth and willing to share their experiences and knowledge.
  • Thank you once again for such a wonderfully informative and organized course.
  • I'd like to thank you for putting together this course, it really was one of the most valuable that I have attended and I certainly got an enormous amount from it
  • Thanks Richard for an outstanding course. The work you have put into organising something like this is nothing short of outstanding.
  • Thanks again for a thoroughly well set out and presented Course. Both the facilities and presenters are second to none.
  • Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for organizing such a great course. It had all the elements required: good speakers with an honest approach and great experience, a strong hands one component, cadaver work shop (the last time I worked on cadavers was as an under- graduate!), and good facilities.
  • Just a quick thank you to the pair of you for the GBR course, and the excellent teaching. It was thoroughly inspiring and the hands-on sessions were superb.
  • Richard and his team present with enthusiasm unequalled. A thoroughly informative yet informal setting. A true Delight!
  • Separating cadaver workshop into cases ie more structure so experience can be gained in areas suited to different clinicians Excellent facility + Excellent mix of hands on and lectures
  • Excellent program with great hands on. Open presenters willing to share their considerable experience
  • Best cadaver course! Most realistic…..Well done!
  • Thank you very much for running a superb course. I got a lot out of it and have already started implementing many techniques.
  • Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and advice. I have already put into action some of the gems you taught us and can honestly say it was some of the best money I've ever spent.
  • Thank you for running such a great course and for sharing your knowledge! I feel that the more I learn, the less I know! And the more mistakes I’ve made :(
  • Thank you very much for the course. I thought it was one of the best I've attended. I got plenty out from it.
  • I just wanted to thank you for the course that you recently organised - it was one of the best that I’ve ever attended. The highlights for me were that we had so much time to practice so many surgical procedures of our choosing. As well as the tutor to course attendee ratio during the hands-on surgery - it was like having your own personal mentor looking over your shoulder.
  • Yes the 4 days were quite exhausting when added to a day’s travel there and back, BUT very worthwhile you gave a great opportunity to extend our knowledge and skills. You have an impressive calibre of presenters sharing the teaching and the surgical facility and cadaver experience was superb.
  • Thank you for a great course; I feel that I really got something out of it. You and your team were so friendly and approachable that I had no reticence in asking many questions and profiting from it. I feel more confident now to further my clinical skills by doing a case requiring uncomplicated GBR.
  • 2019... Hey Richard Just wanted to say thank you again for the excellent course. It really was well run and I truly appreciate all the hard work you put into it. To be honest, I’m not sure why you bother! It seems like so much strain for very little personal gain. I guess that’s exactly what is required in good mentorship. Your experience is invaluable, and as such it makes you indispensable for this sort of work. I’ve already had a chance to flex my new knowledge and techniques a couple of times. The course has genuinely made me consider further study with the graduate diploma. Funny how the more you study, the more you realize you know nothing.
