“I had taken a few implant courses before. It was good enough for me to get started, but then I wanted to learn more clinical and go further from my current level. The hard thing is – one never knows what one doesn’t know. I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and I didn’t know what I would learn. It’s always an open-ended journey. You don’t know what you’re going to get. You take it and you gets lots out of it.
What I got out of it was beyond my expectations. How it influenced me as a clinician was to be more thorough in preparation. The actual work in implant dentistry can be very fast, but there is a lot more I can do better in preparing for the case.
I think the process of going into implant dentistry – it’s like first days and you’re scared to get into it. After the right course and the right mentor, maybe you’re ready to jump into it.”
