“It is a simple fact that the 3 courses I have attended at IDEA are the only ones having had the effect of significant change in my subsequent clinical practice. After 22 years in periodontics, this is even more so again with Prof. Cortellini's course on regeneration. All is now clear and simply cannot wait to radically change my clinical approaches to different advanced problems.”
Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Periodontist, Canada

“The ultimate course of periodontology!  Dr. Cortellini explains in detail what is essential from bone biology, materials and procedures. Clinical applications is foremost and a step-by-step guide to performing not only regenerative periodontics, but thinking about the application of sound principles of biology as applicable to periodontics. My favorite class by far in periodontics!”
Christine Skordeles, General Practitioner, New York, NY

“This course was completely relevant for my daily practice. I will be able to use the skills and information on a regular basis. It was a great course."”
Sarah Johnston, Periodontist, Courtenay, Canada
