Very informative and great to get the hands on experience.
The information is unique to the equipment on show as it is a game changer in dentistry.
Highly informative and the most helpful course I have attended in improving my patient comfort.
This particular course was extremely helpful with important information about implant maintenance. The EMS AIRFLOW is absolutely a non negotiable essential for dental practices.
This course was useful for a recent graduate in learning about implant cleaning and maintenance protocols. It was very useful to get this from a specialist periodontist perspective.
The Swiss Dental Academy course presented by Dr Christopher Barker on Guided Biofilm Therapy and the correct use of the EMS AIRFLOW and piezoelectric equipment was incredible. Well worth the time and journey!! I feel well enabled to now use the equipment effectively in private practice. My patients will be very happy and thoroughly cleaned.
This course was very informative and engaging. Having a smaller group allowed us to have the full attention of the presenter and GBT team with one on one education. This has differed from other courses due to the size and content being presented that was boring and unable to be tailored to individual needs.
I found this workshop very beneficial and believe I gained a lot of experience in using both airflow and perioflow.
I really enjoyed the way the workshop was presented, being succinct and loved the hands-on component. Dr Chris Barker was very informative and answered all questions and provided a lot of valuable information, especially with the hands-on component. I feel a lot more confident and excited to follow the GBT protocol.
This course was very thorough and included both theory and practical elements. The theory was very easy to understand, there was a good mix of refreshing information I already knew and new ideas that I can apply to my everyday practice. The practical component allowed enough time for all participants to have a generous amount of hands-on training in an environment that was both supportive and informative. It really just felt like a group of colleagues sharing experiences and knowledge rather than being lectured.
Comprehensive course on Airflow and GBT with great practical and useful advice from a very competent and practicing practitioner. Great balance between academic and hands on interaction. Loved that the presenter discussed other brands and products (not necessarily EMS) that worked well in her practice on a day to day basis and made me feel like the presentation was fair and honest. Great food and loved that the course was limited to small numbers and run from a local practice. Overall it was a wonderful event.
