“Dr. John West and Dr. Jordan West are amazing instructors. They tailor the course to what you most desire to learn. They are patient and answer all your questions.

“This is the best decision I've made in my professional career. Drs. John and Jordan were fabulous. They took time to answer all my questions. I wish I had taken this course earlier. I feel confident to go back and do endodontics definitely better than I ever did. Thank you to IDEA and its staff for making this possible. It truly was a wonderful experience."
