I had already placed a handful of implants, but my friend recommended this course to me. I was not disappointed! The information was presented in a fun and engage way and I learned a ton. And to top it all off, the people were all great and the food was amazing!

I have been coming to WhiteCap since 2013. I honestly have not been to a more thorough and fulfilling course. I’ve seen many instructors that demonstrate great dental skill, but WhiteCap instructors make you feel like a colleague, a friend they want to bring to their level. I appreciate feeling important. I know they want to see me improve.

Mark Larsen

Always excellent information presented. Personal instruction was in an intimate format. Live hands on courses with live patient demonstration. These courses give me the confidence to safely offer my patients the highest implant options.
