At SmileTube we pride ourselves on working with the best clinicians and educators in the field of implant dentistry, adhering to the tenet, not all good clinicians make good educators and not all good educators make good clinicians!
The SmileTube teaching faculty is composed of some of the most experienced practitioners operating today. Operating is a key word - not only are the faculty members well qualified in their specific field but most importantly they are wet handed dentists. Think about it... who would you have teach you? someone who can talk about it or someone who can actually do it?? However, at the same time, not all good practitioners make good teachers. The SmileTube faculty comprises the best of both worlds.
The Ultimate Implant Year Course is available on a rolling start basis with each of the Clinicians detailed below. Why wait for the traditional course model? Invest in your career, your patients and your Practice - contact us today!
