{I’m writing to give to gIDE my most enthusiastic feedback with regards to this AWESOME course that I just completed at the Global Institute for Dental Education in LA, California. In particular, I was really appreciative about the hands-on component which was carried in a very organized and methodical fashion. This was combined with the multi-media didactic approach that allowed us to interiorize all the practical aspects before-hands. The flipped classroom approach, preparing the delegates before the session, has brought really high yield results. Technologies have changed the way of teaching but also of learning. gIDE has surfed the wave by establishing an app that represents an essential didactic tool which, reinforcing classroom concepts, shares the latest releases of global dental community. This multimedia approach lays the ground for a more futuristic didactic approach, connecting you in a blink of an eye to the most cutting-edge clinical advancements. The live surgery was also extremely beneficial to put all the concepts together in a conclusive, comprehensive, live clinical case that has been analyzed, critiqued and discussed. In conclusion, this GBR-GTR module exceeded all my expectations, confirming gIDE in its leading role of World-Wide Dental Educational Institution.

{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!

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.

{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.
