- Dr. Jerome Cureton, Indianapolis, IN United States

“I have been looking for a comprehensive Dental Implant course for about two years. Most university based courses take 8-12 months. I wanted a course where I could put everything I learned to work immediately. After reading other testimonials, I decided to take Dr. Hebel’s course in Yorba Linda, CA. This course has surpassed all my expectations and I feel strongly confident to start my first placement immediately. The course is very thorough and organized, in-depth and instills confidence and great sense of accomplishment. Congratulations to Dr. Hebel and his team! I highly recommend this class to all!”

- Dr. Hilary Stevens, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada

“As a dentist coming from the U.S., we had the capability to go back and forth from the clinical to the detailed explanation of why, how to, and why not. This was as if we were doing the cases ourselves in our own offices. This was invaluable. We were able to experience the thought process we would have gone through at home. Although we came from far away, it was as if we were practicing in our home town!”

- Dr. Craig Estrada, Chesapeake, Vancouver Canada

- Dr. Jared Cox, Searcy, Arizona United States

“This is a great course for those who are wanting to gain a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of implant dentistry. The faculties are second to none that I have seen. More dental schools should teach in this kind of environment.”

- Dr. Brent Wong, Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada

“I took your 8 Day Mini-Residency course this past summer in Houston, Texas. Since then I have placed 18 implants on 9 patients and done several grafting procedures. At 52 years of age it has been extremely exciting to venture into this new facet of my practice. Your course took the mystery out of implant surgery and has given me the confidence to move forward. I feel that I was well prepared to face the challenges of every case I have done so far. This grafting course is as great as the 2 other sessions (prosthetic and surgical). In fact, bone grafting is essential in implant placement to incorporate in your dental practice. Autogenous bone grafting might not be done in a general practice but covering some exposed threads or socket preservation is quite common in dental implant treatment. Before attending this 3rd session the two first sessions is not only recommended but required.”

- Dr. Hse Tze Wei, Saint-Laurent Quebec

“This bone grafting program was excellent. It filled in the holes and made my knowledge more complete. Although I know I have a lot more to learn about implants, I feel that I now have a good basic understanding of implant placement. I believe I now have the tools required to get back to my office and start placing implants.”

- Dr. Tim Mahoney, Wetaskiwin, Alberta Canada

“Another incredible program. Repetition of the material was great and needed for the third time. Case selection was great and related.”

- Dr. Craig Estrada, Chesapeake, Vancouver Canada

“Excellent presentation of grafting procedures, including indications, cautions, technique to achieve predictable results and limitations of grafting.”

- Dr. Orest Kinach, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada

“I’ve attended numerous implant courses over the years. I would say that Dr. Hebel’s program is definitely a must attend course. The hands on portion is critical to anyone starting implant treatment.”

- Dr. Cory Hooper, Kamloops, British Columbia Canada

“Dr. Hebel has an excellent teaching method that provides dentists the confidence to get started in implant dentistry in a safe and educated manner. Session 3 was an important cap the Hands on Training program.”

- Dr. Suzanne Batista, Thornhill, Ontario Canada

“Dr. Hebel presents a clear roadmap for grafting surgeries staying well within a safety zone that builds confidence for a general dentist to undertake. The reasoning for various procedures and materials have been made clear, the techniques have been outlined in a step by step fashion, such that I am comfortable with this knowledge of returning to my practice and incorporating this with confidence. Thank you for truly teaching how to do things rather than mesmerizing us with advanced case studies (that all too often leave students confused…)”

- Dr. Raminta Mastis, Saint Claire Shores, Michigan Canada
