Dr Oliver Brown – Dental Implant Soft Tissue Course

Since then, the on-going support has been excellent. I have spoken to Boota a few times, briefly updating him on the cases I have completed and sending photos of my work. It’s been great to have follow-up discussions and feedback, and there is a course WhatsApp group for general discussion as well.

    " I have been on multiple composite courses and also done a masters in aesthetics and teach basic restorative procedures to other dentists. However I must say, what these two provide in 2 days is an absolute masterclass. They can take any dentist at any level and raise their game to absolute top standards through honest teaching and no holding back detailed protocols. They leave nothing hidden and keep their message clear and concise. I really was impressed by how much I picked up. Whatever your level, this is a must do. Excellent course, thanks Gurvinder and Andrew"
