This course was very stimulating and challenging to previously held beliefs. I will be implementing these changes in my clinical practice. The clinical skills and thinking by Giovanni were as I expected – awe inspiring. I would recommend this course to my colleagues and it was definitely worth the trip. The staff of IDEA was very welcoming and professional. An excellently run course.
The quality of our speaker, Giovanni Zucchelli, was excellent. He explains why these therapies work and continues to reinforce his passion for dentistry.
Thank you for the outstanding facility and a fantastic teacher. The materials absolutely challenge the thought process on periodontal practice. This is cutting edge. Thank you.
As a General Practitioner who enjoys the surgical aspect of his profession, I was not sure how much this course would be helpful for me. However, not only I, but every person in the group whom I’ve spoken with have enjoyed and benefitted from this course tremendously. Dr. Zucchelli’s passion and enthusiasm is contagious and unlike some previous perio courses. This one has taught me procedures which I will implement for sure.
“Dr. Zucchelli offers a window of possibilities of treatments in my practice that I was not aware were possible. Thank you Bob for bringing in a great and passionate teacher.
I had very high expectations for this course based on what I had heard and read about it on testimonials for other courses offered by IDEA. This course definitely exceeded my expectations and provided me with a learning experience that is extraordinary and according to the most recent literature, leaving no doubt in my mind that I can implement the techniques taught during this course.
This was a mind-blowing course. Dr. Zucchelli is so passionate and generous in his teaching. This will take my practice to a new level and IDEA is really a “Club Med” for dentists!
Dr. Zucchelli is a master in this field. His passion for his craft is infectious and his techniques and treatment protocols were excellently conveyed. I would highly recommend this course for any dentist who wishes to be on the forefront of periodontal esthetic surgery.
