Dr. med. dent. Harald Glas (Austria):
"The course was very impressive. My expectations were exeeded and I could have stayed another week. Everyone was enthusiastic.

At first I was nervous - now I will implant without a surgeon. It is much easier for me now."

Dr Sonja Kramer (Germany):
"The course is good but strenuous. My expecations have been met: I can work on patients under supervision. I was not able to do that in any of the continuing education courses.

I can recommend the [beginner] course to everyone who is not yey sufficiently confident."

Dr. Serge Chausse (Canada):
"We often attended courses and eventually ended up sending patients to others to take over the surgical part and onlly provided tha patients with prosthetics.

The course changed my life...Back home, Implantology is now an important part of my daily practice."

[Dr Chause attended all two advanced levels of TCP courses between 2006 and 2007 after which he became a supervisor himself]

Dr Samual Wong (USA):
"I found this course very good because we gained a lot of hand-on experience. Normally in such courses you work with phantom cases, even if hands-on experience is claimed

We worked from nine o'clock in the morning to eight in the evening> but we enjoyed it and wanted to work more...I would not object to spending a whole month there.
