“What sets this course apart from others is the systematic knowledge base which is installed into you before you go ahead and start drilling bone. It is so important to understand what is happening at a biological level so that one can appreciate how to restore implants successfully. Fadi and the teaching staff have vast amounts of practical experience, are calm and approachable but most importantly thorough. The location is super convenient.

Do it. Take the plunge and you won’t regret it!”

Dr Nirmal Wilwaraarachi, Class of 2019.

“If you are someone who is passionate in your professions, hungry for knowledge and new skills, this is the right place.
The lecturers are brilliant and willing to give as much knowledge as we can absorb and more. Fadi Barrak as leading lecturer is fantastic!

I recommend this course to anybody who is interested in learning implants and improving skills. Very rich with hands-on days. I am impressed how the whole VSSAcademy team is dedicated during the classes.

Especially impressed with the cadaver course: well organised and an opportunity to boost skills.

CBCT Master Course is valuable knowledge and part of the CID course for the same price. Very beneficial
The team from VSSAcademy is constantly taking care for us by finding mentors and the opportunity to have support in placing implants in our practice.”
