Testimonials

Thank you Paul! If somebody told me 6 years ago I would be doing something like this, I would have said they were crazy! Thank you for the implant training.

Dr. Matt Bickel

General Dentist

Dr. Goodman’s course is a no-nonsense, overview of implants. His lecture focuses on specifics and his teaching style was refreshing. Dr. Goodman dismisses preconceived notions about the difficulties of implants and simplifies the surgical placement of implants specifically for the general dentist. There is no better course for an overview of implant placement and restoration than Dr. Goodman’s. Where was he when I was struggling in dental school?

Dr. Gary Klein

General Dentist

Your humor, humility and instruction are both refreshing and inspirational, and of course, the information is pragmatic and extremely valuable. I’ve yet to witness an instructor more gregarious and informative as you (and I’ve been exposed to many of the top names in the field). Keep up the good work and my sincere thanks.

Dr. Ronald Cohen

General Dentist

I’ve taken a implant course that Paul put on – I didn’t eat as many nachos as I wanted but I learned quite a bit. Breaks down what cases you should be looking for and how to build confidence starting out. Also breaks down really easy ways to talk to people, patients being people, dentists being people, about implants and how to go about restoring them. Placing 10 implants would be an awesome way to start your journey and be able to start bringing back into the office. FUll disclosure – Paul did say he’d add the extra cheese for free next time if I got on here and said something. But serioulsy, if you want to learn about the low hanging fruit and how to start out building the confidence to start day one I can guarantee Paul will bring the goods.
