“The virtual hands-on course by Dr. Vargas was absolutely awesome! Such great value with getting a kit full of products and instruments plus having a live hands-on course with the world-renowned educator – there is nothing else out there like this! Being a cosmetic dentist doing bonding on a daily basis, I took out quite a bunch of helpful tips that I could implement right away.”
