Thank you for such a wonderful course. It’s more than what I expected. Dr. Zokol explained everything in a very clear way. The course included the basics for doing grafts and atraumatic extractions and also gave very useful tips from Dr. Zokol great experience. The hands-on was what I needed to feel confident and comfortable before doing such procedures. Greatly appreciate your efforts and will be waiting for the next course 😊

I would highly recommend training with DDI. Very convenient to learn on my own time and in the comfort of my home! Exceptional course content that enhanced by understanding of core principles and then followed up with a hands-on portion. Will be connecting with the instructor to review topics and questions. Very thought out online instruction-I will be back for more!
