TESTIMONIALS - Implantology Continuum:

"Thank you for creating a course geared for a general practitioner, like me- the sequence of material presented made it quite understandable.  Although each presenter had his/her own perspective and preferences, the variety of viewpoints was very valuable.  And certainly, all of us will incorporate this material into our practices in our own way.... I had a patient this weekend with a fractured maxillary premolar, I extracted it and placed an immediate implant.  What a wonderful option to offer a patient.  I am looking at my cases in a different way and I am confident in the fine training I received. Thank you for helping me become a better dentist."  Dr. Jane Arena (2015-2016)
"I sincerely believe the knowledge you shared will transform the way I practice this noble profession and it certainly will benefit many patients. I'm very motivated to continue researching and learning to expand my knowledge." Dr. Mora, Colombia (2014-2015) 
"Basically the course was fantastic. Dr. Fine and Dr. Valdinoto were amazing, as were all the other presenters..." Dr. Spina, III, Wayne, PA (2012-2013) 
"... I felt I did not waste my time or money at all."  Dr. Chan, New Rochelle, NY (2012-2013) 
"I had a great time at Columbia...I can honestly say this was probably the best treatment I have ever received from a dental school."  Dr. Yuan, Flushing, NY (2012-2013) 
"...The small classroom and their desire to make us understand the basics of Implant placement made it easy to understand the material. They all answered every question and never made you feel uncomfortable. They always made it real world and practical, while at the same time giving me the knowledge of what is possible in more complicated cases. This course was a highlight of my career..." Dr. Michel, Somers Point, NJ (2010-2011)
