What Customer says about Pierpaolo Cortellini


Dr. Sandro Cortellini has exceeded my expectations. He is not only a great clinician, researcher, and instructor, but also a very approachable and friendly human being. I cannot be more proud of having taken his course and educating my patients and colleagues in what should be the standard of care. Thank you, Heike, and IDEA, for the opportunity.

Luis Pagan
Periodontist, Lake Oswego, OR

I did not know much about periodontal procedures coming to the class. I feel so empowered with the information and techniques provided and things that can be implemented even for a General Dentist. Prof. Cortellini is a legend, and his philosophy and approach is on the forefront and advanced for its time. Thank you, Professor!

Wendy Cole
General Practitioner, Harrogate, United Kingdom

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.
