"I have attended a couple of your presentations. Really got a lot out of them. It's rare that a one day program can impact what you do so profoundly"

Kyle McCrea DDS Richmond, TX

"I just want to thank you for the beautiful and informative presentation we had yesterday at 3D planning and execution course. You are an amazing person and a wonderful teacher. We need more educators like you to lift the standards of education beyond financial interests. 

I am planning to integrate what I learned from you into my practice so my patients can benefit from practicing implant dentistry at higher level.

Thanks again for your contribution to our profession. It is an honor to know you in person and see you in action."

"Hey Rick! Just wanted to leave a review for your course: “I have no background in 3D printing. I am one of those people that generally new concepts in dentistry come easy to me. But 3D printing is so foreign that it had felt out of my comfort. Dr. Bally and Dr. Ferguson are fantastic. They are kind, knowledgeable and amazing teachers. You can tell they are passionate about mentoring and teaching. It’s a rarity to find people who don’t teach because they need to, but because they truly want to help others. The course is very balanced and well paced. Highly recommend. Will be taking more courses with them in the future!"
