Hi Brett, I have attended many lectures and labs and the AVDC forum and consider myself an experienced general practitioner in the field of dentistry. I am now finished the extraction webinar. I would like to tell you that your webinars are outstanding. They have refreshed my skills in areas that needed refreshing and they have helped me improve my extraction skills and flap making in ways I didn’t think possible. Thank-you. Every veterinarian should be required to take these webinars before they practice dentistry.

Dr. Beckman, thank you so much for an amazing weekend and your kind words. This was a “practice changer” CE course!! I am so energized to get back to work and try these new techniques.

I wish every vet student could benefit from your experience!!
