TESTIMONIALS

{Fantastic course with information that can be applied to every dentist! First-class experience and education! Wish I would have done this years ago! A must for anyone placing implants!
Dr. Cyril J. Beard, General Dentist
Red Bank, New Jersey
{The workshop exercises were exactly what I needed, incorporating the best fresh-tissue sinus model I ever worked with. It was like having a CT-Scan diagnosis in front of me! With each step, I could clearly see its resulting impact on the sinus floor. This course raised my confidence level and success rate in sinus bone grafting, and has expanded my understanding and overall expertise of these important procedures that I now perform regularly.
Dr. Phil Melnick, Periodontist
Cerritos, CA
{I had felt that there was a piece of my practice that was missing...That was hard tissue and sinus augmentation. After the course, I feel that this piece of the puzzle has been completed.
Dr. Thomas W. Mabry, Periodontist
Slidell, LA
{Dr. Jovanovic offers the most complete and comprehensive program on bone, ridge and socket grafting. He's a WORLD CLASS dentist that provides one of the best educational programs to train other dentists to predictably graft bone, to place implants to give the most predictable level of success.
