Actual message from clinician-attendee:
Just wanted to say thanks a million times over for teaching us the pouch technique on sinus grafting. I am here to tell you it makes sinus grafting so much more enjoyable knowing I have an out if I have a membrane tear...
Thanks again and happy holidays.
"Dr. Pikos and his team are incredible. The course was informative and paced very well. This has been hands-down the best course I have attended. Anyone placing implants needs this information!"

"Best surgical implant course every!! Dr. Pikos presents the material in a way that is structured and detailed. I have never done a sinus graft before, but after taking this course I am confident that I can perform sinus grafts when I return to my office. If you have never performed a sinus graft, take the course, you won’t regret it!!"
