I admire the way Dr. Kraemer delivers her knowledge to us. She is very structured, precise, and generous. She reads your mind and can see where you are in the learning process. The lab experience is very effective to learn and to adopt the process.

Best instructors for diving in deep and becoming a master head and shoulders above the rest.

There are rare moments in my life where I learned something so profound that it brings tears to my eyes. There was a moment where Dr. Velasquez so eloquently explained the inner working of the human skull and how it relates to occlusion, just connected many dots for me.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to learn from those who are so passionate about the art and science of dentistry and how it affects the whole person.

I am still at the beginning, but this course is exciting and promising. Nowhere I would learn how, why, and when to intervene in early childhood development to affect the overall growth and potential. Also, how to set up my cases pre-restoratively for stability with occlusion and function afterwards, and longevity of my patient's dentition.

I wish I attended the courses at IDEA earlier.

This program has been very eye opening. The material covered is something so important that it is shocking that we (as dentists) haven't been shown the importance of these concepts.

I am very eager to learn more, implement this in my practice and help my patients. The facility and staff are exceptional, and the speakers are excellent, friendly, and so knowledgeable.

Martha Iturriaga
General Practitioner, San Jose, CA
orthodontics-TMJ

This course teaches us 'trouble free' orthodontics. We can provide our patients not only good esthetics but most importantly, better quality of life by eliminating all these symptoms. Applying this concept in our practices sends the level of our service to the highest level.
